iTunes Editors’ Notes

This commemorative double album of The Who’s 1989 U.S. tour started a cycle of band reunions that's continued for decades. The Who had performed a “farewell tour” in 1982, but whatever dramatic ending the band initially sought was eventually rejected in favor of bigger and increasingly lucrative tours. The decision to perform the rock opera Tommy helped get the wheels rolling for the Broadway musical. Career highlights follow on the second set, with the inclusion of “Dig,” “Rough Boys,” “A Little Is Enough," and “Face the Face” all from Townshend’s solo work and fleshed out alongside the Who classics “I Can See for Miles,” “Love Reign O’er Me,” and “Won’t Get Fooled Again” with a number of auxiliary musicians. This practice became commonplace for veteran bands as they performed in arenas and stadiums, where a modest four- or five-piece band couldn't fill the air. As a recording, this brings a distant, echoed sound, with many additional musical parts that never appeared on the original albums.

An Album That Will Live In Infamy

I'm actually quite surprised this album made it to iTunes. Anyway, this is an album comprised of tracks culled from The Who's infamous 1989 reunion tour. I use the word "infamous" because of the reputation this tour received after the fact. This is the tour that featured probably close to twenty musicians on stage at a time, as there was a full brass section, backup singers, second and third keyboard players, multiple guitarists, a precussionist, etc. Needless to say, the result did not sound anything like The Who. Sure, Daltrey, Entwistle and Townshend were on stage, but Roger's soundest worse than it had at any point in his career, Townshend was relegated to acoustic guitar because of his hearing issues, and Entwistle can hardly be heard as he was drowned out by all of the extra "music." Basically, this can barely be called an album by The Who. As an aside, Simon Phillips is a great drummer. hahaha

Biography

Years Active: '60s, '70s, '80s, '90s, '00s

Few rock & roll bands were riddled with as many contradictions as the Who. All four members had wildly different personalities, as their notorious live performances demonstrated: Keith Moon fell over his drum kit while Pete Townshend leaped into the air with his guitar, spinning his right hand in exaggerated windmills. Vocalist Roger Daltrey prowled the stage as bassist John Entwistle stood silent, the eye of the hurricane. They clashed frequently, but these frictions resulted in a decade's...
