The Who - Detailed Discography
THE WHO - DISCOGRAPHY
The format is a little different for the Who albums (vs. everything else) due
to the volume of all the Who records and CDs. The Who albums each have their own pages
(reissues and compilations are grouped together) and the solo albums and
singles are grouped together by artist/category. Reissues (LP and CD) will
be listed with the original release, not the date of the reissue (unless there
is a title change, making it a "unique" release). In the "UK-Only" and
"USA-Only" sections, those records are listed in order of actual release date.
Rarities are tracks which don't appear on an album that's currently "in print". For example, the 1979 live version of "Dancing In the Street" has only been released on the 1988 "Won't Get Fooled Again" EP (which is long out of print). These rarities will be listed throughout this site and noted with an "(R)" so that they are easily identified.
The "Related" section includes "guest appearances" of The Who (or its solo members) on various "other artist" albums or singles. An example of this might be Pete Townshend's song, "Join My Gang", which was only officially released on a 1966 UK single by the band, Oscar (who coincidentally is Paul Nicholas, who played "Cousin Kevin" in the 1975 "Tommy" movie).
Sound quality can be very subjective. What sounds good to one person may sound "less-than-good" to another. Playing music on different equipment can also vary the results. However, if your source is better, your results should be better. These reviews may be qualified by saying they are "my opinion" and therefore potentially subjective. However, I have developed the resources to adequately compare and give accurate descriptions of the same. You will also find sound samples so that you can listen for yourself. Ultimately, you and your own ears are the judge.
