The Who | My Generation:

My Generation: Can You See The Real Me?

The original 1965 UK pressing of the The Who's "My Generation" LP has been heavily bootlegged. "Pirate" copies, made to look like original pressings to fool unsuspecting collectors are frequently sold in the market place. For example, I was sold a "second pressing", as a legitimate release, when in fact it was actually a pirate. Here's a side-by-side comparison for what to look for. Please note that pirates may have been produced by different sources and therefore may vary from the example pictured below:
