The Who Sell Out - Super Deluxe

Postby The Slider » 23 Apr 2021, 19:00

New five disc edition released today. It is absurdly expensive for what it is (about 80 quid here) but it does sound great (I've only played the stereo mix and the 3rd disc of outtakes so far)

https://superdeluxeedition.com/news/the ... e-edition/

CD 1 – Original mono mix, mono As & Bs and unreleased mono mixes
CD 2 – Original stereo mix and stereo bonus tracks
CD 3 – Studio out-takes, ‘fly-on-the-wall’ versions of early takes of songs from the album sessions, ‘studio chat’ etc.
CD 4 – ‘The Road to Tommy’ will contain stereo mixes of the studio tracks recorded in 1968 – some previously unreleased – plus 1968 As and Bs mono mixes (all tracks remixed from original 4 and 8-track session tapes in The Who vault)
CD 5 – 14 of Pete Townshend’s original demos, previously unreleased & exclusive to this set

There is an interesting documentary on the album that premiered last night in the US
Thanks to Loveless for the tip off.

The Complete Velvet Underground - Lou Reed Mp3 set now available in the usual place, should you want one.

Never the big fan. But I read the big article in Uncut with interest.

I figured that might be the link, but my computer/browser says it's restricted. Are you getting it?

Oh -- now I'm getting a picture, bu it says the show won't be available until...yesterday. On the other hand, it the old "Classic Albums"?

It is the old "Classic Albums" (I never knew they'd done one on Sell Out) and I watched the whole thing. I don't know why it would be restricted.

Really, if you haven't seen/can't see it, you're not missing terribly much.

It doesn’t start for a good ten minutes.

I believe it's a brand new episode for 2021 Charlie, not a repeat.
