Who’s Greatest Hits on coloured vinyl reissue

The Who’s 1983 hits compilation album Who’s Greatest Hits has been given a remaster by Jon Astley at Close To The Edge with a half-speed remastering by Miles Showell at Abbey Road and reissued on bright red 180-gram vinyl on the Polydor label. The original album artwork featuring a cover by Graham Hughes has been restored including the picture-montage liner bag.

Originally released on MCA Records in the US on 23 November 1983, the album went on to sell over two million copies and was certified platinum (twice) by the Recording Industry Association of America. Who’s Greatest Hits includes the single edit versions of ‘Won’t Get Fooled Again’ and ‘Who Are You’ and the single mix of ‘5:15’ , ‘Happy Jack’ and ‘Love Reign O’er Me’.

Good news is that the 1972 single ‘Relay’ appears on this album in its full-length version of 3’51.

A bonus track on Side A is the inclusion of the mono version of ‘Anyway Anyhow Anywhere’.

    Looking to get this. I am an avid collector of The Who since 1980 when I was just getting into The Who from a family vacation to Rochester NY at 13 years old a girl that loved The Who got me going non-stop. To this day I’m a firm believer that The Who is the greatest rock band ever!!! Yours truly, Marty.

    I don’t see the need for the single edits of the longer tracks. The rest are terrific, of course.
