Following similar volumes of repertory by Yes and The Rolling Stones, Who's Serious: Symphonic Music of the Who presents The London Philharmonic Orchestra running through several of The Who's best-known numbers, including "I Can See For Miles," "My Generation," "Baba O'Riley," and "Pinball Wizard." The release is augmented by a version of "Overture," a medley used by Roger Daltrey to open his solo concerts and recorded here by members of his touring band, including drummer Zak Starkey (Ringo Starr's son) and Simon Townshend (Pete's brother). All told, there are ten tracks here; the interested Who fan will probably find some worthwhile adaptations, but those starting with a negative opinion of the premise are advised to steer clear. And, needless to say, all of the original recordings should be obtained first.
Formed: October 7, 1932 in London, England
Years Active: '30s, '40s, '50s, '60s, '70s, '80s, '90s, '00s
