Early WHO Recordings To Be Released In Stereo

MCA Records has signed an agreement with producer Shel Talmy, acquiring never-before-remixed three-track tapes of 24 of The WHO’s earliest recordings, which will allow the songs to be mixed to stereo for the first time ever.

A Deluxe Edition of the band’s seminal 1965 album “The Who Sings My Generation” and other packages utilizing the new material are expected to be released beginning in spring 2002. Along with the classics “My Generation,” “I Can’t Explain” and “The Kids Are Alright,” the three-track recordings include the never-before-in-stereo “Anyhow, Anyway, Anywhere,” “Anytime You Want Me,” “Bald Headed Woman,” “Circles,” “Daddy Rolling Stone,” “Heat Wave,” “I Don’t Mind,” “I’m A Man,” “Instant Party Mixture,” “It’s Not True,” “Leaving Here,” “La-La-Lies,” “Legal Matters,” “Lubie,” “Motor-vating,” “Much Too Much,” “Please Please Please,” “Shout And Shimmy,” “The Good’s Gone,” “The Ox” and “You’re Going To Know Me.”

The reels also contain previously unissued alternate takes.
