Out Now Limited Edition Half-Speed Mastered Vinyl Studio Albums
Out today, May 6, 2022, the release of the first two in a series of half-speed mastered vinyl studio albums from The Who; My Generation and A Quick One.
These limited-edition black vinyl albums, both in stereo, have been mastered by long-time Who engineer Jon Astley at Close To the Edge and cut for vinyl by Miles Showell at Abbey Road Studios using the half-speed mastering process which produces a superior vinyl cut. Both albums are packaged in their original sleeves with obi strips and an Abbey Road Studios Half-Speed Mastering Certificate.
First released in 1965, My Generation was The Who’s debut album. It peaked at #5 and unleashed The Who on to the world. It has been described as one of the greatest albums of all time by Rolling Stone, MOJO, and the NME and was included in the US Library of Congress’s National Recording Registry as ‘culturally significant’ to be preserved and archived for all time.
The band’s follow up album A Quick One was released in late 1966, it contains more experimental compositions including the nine-minute mini-opera ‘A Quick One, While He’s Away’ which was the precursor to what was to follow in later years, as well as classic Who tunes including ‘So Sad About Us’ and ‘Boris The Spider’.
