I'm currently obsessed with this record.
Killer video. Lip synched studio version:
Yeah, definitely one of my favorite Who records and gets quite a bit of play in the shop!
One of my favorite Who albums. Great songs, great recording. I think it's one of their best.
I love that album, and "A Quick One".
Love it, blows Tommy out of the water - there I said it!
This and the original Live at Leeds are the Who at their finest, IMO.
It's ok to say that. I love The Who and Tommy doesn't rank as high as many of their other work as far as I'm concerned.
I need to get Sell Out on CD, it's been too long since I've listened to that album.
Always has been my favorite Who LP. My origional mono version was stolen from me in college back in '74.
The best studio work of the Who's career. It isn't even close.
Much as I love Tommy and Who's Next, this album was the Who's finest hour.
Been listening to Who Sell Out several time in the past few weeks.
I've always liked it.
Tonight, as I saw this thread as a matter of fact, I'm listening to Pearl Jams' version of "A Quick One While He's Away". They did a great job of it.
Ahhhhh yes... many many many hours listening to this in my younger years, wore out the vinyl so bad had to buy the album again... a double album with the "A Quick One" the second disc. Fantastic early Who stuff and also was some of the earliest guitar stuff I played.
As much as I like all of the Who's output with Moon, Sell Out is my favorite, with The Who By Numbers in second place. Makes for a few heated discussions with other Who fans.
The Who Sell Out is terrific as Townshend is really starting to get in gear with his writing, and the sound of the album really catches a mood of the sixties. I still listen to the extended version of the album regularly.
That was outstanding, glad they were influenced by the Rock And Roll Circus version and not the Monterey Pop version.
I saw this a few weeks ago and was mesmerised. Initially I thought it was Pearl Jam too. But it is actually Eddie Vedder with My Morning Jacket. Understandable mistake.
That truly is one of the coolest things on the record!! Beautiful changes!
and of course, "Get your group together, use Rotosound Strings" !
and "Tattoo" ...
The expanded version has some terrific songs that were left of the original LP.
Check out "Jaguar" and "Melancholia".
I just saw the "Pearl Jam" when I clicked on it and listened but did not pay attention to the video itself outside of the audio as I surfed the web.
I have long enjoyed Eddie's performances with Pete.
Everyone check those out if you get a chance.
I've been filling out my classic album library.
I will add this to the list, thanks!
My favorite Who era.
The 2CD Deluxe edition is fantastic. Years of collecting crappy bootlegs of unreleased tunes and finally good quality copies.
Dig the incredible bass sound....
