For many of the heavy hitters in Rock and Roll history, there has been multiple editions of classic albums. For The Who, that’s especially true. However, in this day and age of classic albums, in order to get people newly interested in a new acquisition of an old and oft reissued title, you have to offer an increasingly better and better product. That seems to be the way most reissues of classics are going with affordable Super Deluxe Editions.
On November 18, in the UK for now, there will be a 5-disc Super Deluxe Edition of the classic 1965 Who set, My Generation. Currently, there is no insider info to be had as of yet. The general assumption is that the set will contain the original Mono mix, a 2014 Stereo remix, along with a collection of demos and singles, b-sides, etc, etc. And while five CDs seem a bit much, it will be interesting to see just what will be in the box.
Certainly, a hard-bound book is an inevitable inclusion.
I’ll update as I get more info.
