Classic Records (Track)



Product No.:
ATRK 2490129

140 / 150 Gram Vinyl Record

Note: 150 Gram


Having to follow four monumental releases in succession, The Who By Numbers is often overlooked and unfairly overshadowed. Produced again by Glyn Johns and released in 1975, the album is a more modest, simple affair, certainly withstanding the test of time by its own merits. In what might be his most personal tell-all collection (outside of some of his future solo albums, Pete Townshend lays it out there in lyrics of brutal honesty regarding battles with alcoholism and womanizing. Probably best known for the radio-friendly ditty "Squeeze Box," the set also contains patented Who in the terms of "Slip Kid," "Blue Red and Grey" plus one of bassist John Entwistle's best compositions, "Success Story." London studio regular Nicky Hopkins adds tasteful keyboard fills throughout. As part of the Classic Who LP reissue series, this title was mastered by Chris Bellman at Bernie Grundman Mastering from the original quarter-inch analog master tapes sourced directly from The Who. Authentic UK artwork and labels were meticulously reproduced, making this another must-have Classic reissue.
