The Who has released an updated version of 2019’s WHO album today (October 30th.) The set, which features the “Beads On One String” remix, includes a seven-track bonus disc culled from the band’s February 14th, 2020 gig at the 2,000-capacity Pryzm in Kingston-Upon-Thames, England, marking the smallest venue the band had played in over 40 years.
The show marked the 50th anniversary of the Who’s legendary recording of its first live album — Live At Leeds. Joining Roger Daltrey and Pete Townshend onstage were Townshend’s younger brother and Who touring guitarist Simon Townshend, bassist Phil Spaulding, along with longtime Who live veterans — percussionist Jody Linscott and vocalist Billy Nicholls.
The tracklisting to the new live, acoustic bonus disc is: Intro, “Substitute,” “Squeeze Box,” “Tattoo,” “The Kids Are Alright,” “Break The News,” “She Rocked My World,” and “Won’t Get Fooled Again.”
- The Who’s latest album, WHO, entered the Billboard 200 at Number Two. The album hit the UK charts at Number Three — and still marks the Who’s best charting album in the States since 1978’s Who Are You — which also peaked at Number Two.
- It was revealed on TheWho.com’s official message board that the band is currently in production for a Classic Albums episode for 1967’s The Who Sell Out.
- One of the staffers on the doc posted shots of Roger Daltrey on the set for the episode which will chronicle the Who’s beloved third album.
- There’s been no official announcement as to when the show will air.
