The Who to Release a Super Deluxe 5-CD Version of the Album "My Generation"

by VVN Music

The Who continue to mine their archives as they move into the second half-century of their career with a brand new five-CD edition of the album My Generation.

Out on November 18 via MCA, the set includes both mono and stereo remasters of the original album plus a host of unreleased material that Pete Townshend found in his archive during a break from touring last year. Among those tapes were three songs that the band had never released in any form, The Girls I Could Have Had, As Children We Grew and My Own Love.

Townshend commented "Gathering these demos for this collection has been enjoyable; it's wonderful for me to have these tapes made fifty-two years ago to listen to. I hope you enjoy them. They have a naiveté and innocence, a simplicity and directness, and an ingenuousness that reveals me as a young man struggling to keep up with the more mature and developed men around me. What an incredible group of strong, talented, young and engaging men they were!"

The 79-tracks spread over five discs in the Super Deluxe Edition also includes a stereo remix which was created using new overdubs from Roger Daltrey and Pete Townshend. For this mix, Townshend used the same exact guitars and amps as the original album with Roger using same type of microphone.

Also included in the package is an 80-page color book with many rare and unseen period photos, candid and insightful new notes from Pete Townshend and period memorabilia.

Along with the Super Deluxe 5-CD set, there will also be a 3 vinyl LP box and a 2 vinyl LP set (both out February 10).
