The Who‘s 1967 album The Who Sell Out will be reissued as a seven-disc super deluxe edition box set in April. The album was originally planned by Pete Townshend and the band’s managers (Kit Lambert and Chris Stamp) as a loose concept album with jingles and commercials linking the songs. This approach was partly because the record label were demanding a new record and Townshend felt as if he didn’t have enough songs!

In the end, rather than actually going as far as to sell advertising space on the album, the band opted to write their own jingles, with a nod to pirate radio stations and an increasingly consumerist society. The iconic sleeve plays an important part of the overriding concept and was created by David King who was the art director at the Sunday Times, and Roger Law (yes, the guy who invented UK TV’s Spitting Image show, in the 1980s).

Only The Who’s third album, The Who Sell Out is regarded highly and features the transatlantic top ten hit ‘I Can See For Miles’.

By the end of the ’70s, the original version of the Who was reaching the end of its tether (Keith Moon was nearing the end of his life). „Who Are You“ can be seen as something of a swan song for the spirit that ignited the rock & roll juggernaut that was the Who in its prime. The increased prominence of synthesizers here (the electronic flavoring of the title track recalls ‘Baba O’Riley’) points towards the direction the post-Moon ’80s version of the band would take. Instead of casting aspersions on socio-political ills, Townshend was casting glances askance at current musical trends (‘Sister Disco’) and his own occupation (‘Guitar and Pen’). Entwistle’s bass still rumbles melodically through the tunes in the grand style, and Daltrey’s wounded-beast roar is at its most impassioned on such songs as ‘Had Enough.’ The end of an era was just around the corner, but the band blazed away regardless, making WHO ARE YOU the last must-have Who album.
