The Who
My Generation

  (Item #: who__mygen_1807_7_10_02) 

Our Price: $199.99
Sale Price: $169.99 (You save $30.00 / 15%)


  • A stunning sounding copy with Triple Plus (A+++) sound on the second side and Double Plus (A++) on the first - fairly quiet vinyl too
  • This import pressing is killer, with more correct tonality, dramatically less distortion and much more energy than anything you've heard, guaranteed
  • Some tracks do sound better than others, but that’s par for the course with early Who material
  • "An explosive debut, and the hardest mod pop recorded by anyone. At the time of its release, it also had the most ferociously powerful guitars and drums yet captured on a rock record. While the execution was sometimes crude, and the songwriting not as sophisticated as it would shortly become, the Who never surpassed the pure energy level of this record."

  • Pitchfork's Ryan Schreiber believed it was "easily the most accessible of Miles Davis' late-'70s electric releases," describing its music as "at once both sexually steamy and unsettling." He said the live recordings "run the gamut from barroom brawl action-funk to sensual bedroom jazz magic, creating two hours of charged eccentricity you'll never forget."

And in the loping, percolating "Everybody Wants to Rule the World," Tears for Fears perfectly captured the zeitgeist of the mid-'80s while impossibly managing to also create a dreamy, timeless pop classic. ...one of the finest statements of the decade."

Gathered here was the Ellington band with Billy Strayhorn at the piano...This was an integrated unit, not some detached studio band for Hodges to blow over, under, around, and through. It was wonderful Hodges and fine Ellington."

  • "What we have here is a solid collection of 1970s Canyon stompers and Zuma beach jams, pulling the spirit and sound of the band’s first album into a slightly lower register and trading in a bit of the garage-band cackle for a smooth, whiskey-soaked groove... a worthwhile chapter in the band’s history that has remained sorely overlooked."

  • "Cocker mixed elements of late-'60s English blues revival recordings (John Mayall, et al.) with the more contemporary sounds of soul and pop; a sound fused in no small part by producer and arranger Leon Russell, whose gumbo mix figures prominently on this eponymous release and the infamous Mad Dogs & Englishmen live set."

  • 4 stars: "The Chicago mainstay's debut album was a rough, gruff, no-nonsense affair typified by the decidedly unsentimental track "Your Love Is like a Cancer." Seals wasn't all that far removed from his southern roots at this point, and his slashing guitar work sports a strikingly raw feel on his originals "Look Now, Baby," "Cotton Picking Blues," and "Hot Sauce" (the latter a blistering instrumental that sounds a bit like the theme from Batman played sideways)."

  • Sorcerer demonstrates the big-as-life, spacious and unerringly accurate 30th Street Studio Sound Fred Plaut was justly famous for
  • 4 1/2 stars: "The emphasis is as much on complex, interweaving chords and a coolly relaxed sound as it is on sheer improvisation, though each member tears off thoroughly compelling solos. Still, the individual flights aren't placed at the forefront the way they were on the two predecessors -- it all merges together, pointing toward the dense soundscapes of Miles' later '60s work."

  • If you're looking to demonstrate just how good 1967 All Tube Analog sound can be, this killer copy will do the trick, thanks to the superb engineering skills of Bruce Botnick
  • "... a truly classic body of work, highlighted by the atomic blast of pre-punk rock "7 and 7 Is" (their only hit single), the manic jazz tempos of "Stephanie Knows Who," and the enchanting "She Comes in Colors," perhaps Lee's best composition (and reportedly the inspiration for the Rolling Stones' "She's a Rainbow")."
