The Who By Numbers:
Album: The Who by Numbers
LPs (vinyl) Sampled: Polydor (UK), MCA (USA), Polydor (Germany), RCA (Italy), Polydor (Philippines), Polydor (Holland), Sony (Japan)
CDs (original mix) Sampled: Polydor (Germany), MCA (USA), Polydor (Japan)
CDs (remix) Sampled: Polydor (Germany), MCA (USA), Polydor (Japan)
LP Comments: Without question, the Sony (Japan) is superior to the others. Polydor (Germany) and (UK) are tied for 2nd place.
CD (original mix) comments: The Polydor (Germany) sounds great. The Polydor (Japan) has a little too much bass. The MCA (USA) sounds poor.
CD (remix) comments: The Polydor (Germany) is the CD of choice. The Polydor (Japan) has too much bass. After the sound problems (too bright, too harsh) with "Quadrophenia" and "My Generation: The Very Best Of The Who", MCA was able to "tone it down" a bit for this CD and "Who Are You", but some of the harshness still exists and the sound is hard on the ears. Neither of the <above> Polydor releases has this effect.
About: The Who By Numbers
Summary: The remix of this album is great and if you're a fan of this album, seek out the Polydor (Germany) copy. If you like the original mix, the Sony (Japan) LP copy is very special, with the Polydor (Germany) CD in 2nd place.
