The Who: Epilogue - Compilations, Remixes, & Rarities
Discography
With literally hundreds of compilations exploring the continuum of The Who's canon discography and beyond... keeping track of variations and critical recordings can be genuinely maddening!Let Discography's host, Marc With a C, be your leader and your guide to the compilation cream that rose to the top and the remixed albums that are completely essential for any self-respecting Who fanatic. Learn about how the legendary band's catalog got into such messy shape, and if you've joined us for our entire journey through the Who's history, this epilogue episode ties up some of the loose ends in The Who's canon as we look onward to the future.On this series we aim to provide an exhaustive but equally entertaining look at a musician's work. Taking on one of the greatest and most important acts in the history of rock music is something we don't take lightly - as evidenced by our comprehensive journey through not just the band's work, but also their complete solo careers. That's a lot of records! And with Pete Townshend and Roger Daltry recording a new Who record at this very moment, it's a history that's very much still on-going. For the dedicated Who collector, getting is all is a next to impossible feat, and Marc can't really offer you any easy answers, but if you're into the minutia of just how far one can exploit a catalog of recorded songs?

The Who: 2002-2018 - Then & Now to As Long as I Have You
Discography
After John Entwistle's shocking death on the eve of The Who's 2002 tour, few could have been blamed for considering that event to be the proverbial "end of the road" for the group. Even fewer could have predicted that it would instead be followed by one of the largest tours in the band's history and their first album of new material in well over two decades, Endless Wire. But that's not all! If you'll carefully check the liner notes to Roger Daltrey's 2018 album As Long As I Have You - you might even notice enough appearances from Pete Townshend to consider it a secret Who album.Rather than being The Who's twilight years, the era from 2002-present is actually among the most productive periods since their initial heyday! Host, Marc With a C, digs into the circumstances that brought the Who to a full-fledged reemergence - even when the backstories aren't particularly flattering. In fact, there's an especially ugly elephant in the room that we have to address right off the bat, and you might want to consider this introductory text to be a trigger warning.Grim and grimy tidings aside, The Who soldier on valiantly, traveling to nearly every continent possible, reviving ideas, songs, and vault material, and just when we think they're done... Well, they shocked us by announcing work on a new record shortly after we concluded recording this season. Marc With a C is your leader, he is your guide, and he's all too happy to help you Be Lucky on this Amazing Journey!Albums touched on in this episode include Then & Now, Edge Of The World, View From a Backstage Pass, Endless Wire, Live At Hull, Going Back Home, As Long As I Have You, and more!

The Who: 1989-2002 - Join Together to Scoop 3
Discography
The 90s were a strange and unpredictable time for The Who. The band was back as a touring act but little else, meanwhile the individual members pressed on into their solo careers. Townshend's passion projects paved the way for eventual Who material, Daltry soldiered on to find a way forward musically, and Entwistle threw caution to the wind to start his own group with friends Steve Luongo and Godfrey Townsend (no relation). These twelve-odd years are the building blocks of how The Who put themselves back together - recreating the sounds of their records onstage for the first time - instead of the other way around. Plus... there's some very deep wells of little-known, but vital material to explore. Prepare for Maximum Discography!Join host Marc for a fan's-eye-view into the controversial 1989 reunion tour and a deep dive with Cap Blackard into the pros and cons of the two different versions of Townshend's concept album, Psychoderelict. Eventually the band returned to loudest, classic-style performances for the most surprising reason of all: Townshend getting as close to finishing Lifehouse as possible. Those stripped down gigs from 1999-2001 were well received. In fact - some believe The Who's appearance at the Concert For New York can hang with the leagues of Queen at Live Aid! But the new highs weren't to last, this episode goes up to the very last notes John Entwistle would ever play onstage with his childhood friends before his untimely passing in 2002.Albums covered in this episode include Join Together, Rocks In The Head, Psychoderelict (both the dialogue and music-only versions), Thirty Years of Maximum R&B, Live At Isle Of Wight 1970, Left For Live, A Benefit For Maryville Academy, BBC Sessions, The Blues To The Bush, Lifehouse Chronicles, Music From Van-Pires, Scoop 3, and more from this era!

The Who: 1982-1989 - It's Hard to The Iron Man
Discography
Following the release of their 1982 album, It's Hard, The Who called it quits and spent the rest of the 80s redefining their solo careers. Join Discography host Marc With a C as he chronicles what he's dubbed "the first farewell era" - exploring the ways that the group had splintered and how they carried on in finding their individual voices. John Entwistle wouldn't have much luck getting his new record off the ground, Roger Daltry released a series of baffling solo projects, while Pete Townshend dabbled in film, book editing, and pursuits that would increasingly incorporate interwoven stories.This is where Discography's commitment to discovering WHO the band really is kicks into gear as we dive into not just what the members do between albums, but what they do when there's no band to fall back on. And there's plenty of revelations to go around! For instance: Marc admits that he'd misunderstood the intent of Townshend's Iron Man album for years, and posits a theory about the White City album/film that's so controversial that it may make you rethink everything you think you know about The Who's chronology!During this period, the three remaining members would occasionally find themselves reunited for the odd benefit or awards show, but in 1989 the bands silence was truly broken when they returned to the touring circuit with a massively expanded lineup. It's an especially strange but rewarding era for our three remaining protagonists, and the story isn't even close to being fully told yet!Albums touched on in this episode are It's Hard, Scoop, Parting Should Be Painless, Who's Last, Under a Raging Moon, White City: A Novel, The Rock, Deep End Live!, Another Scoop, Can't Wait To See The Movie, The Iron Man, and other assorted releases from the era!

The Who: 1977-1982 - Rough Mix to All the Best Cowboys Have Chinese Eyes
Discography
Between 1977 and 1982, The Who changed in inconceivable ways. They were still a huge live draw, they were making massive hit records, and their tenure as stars of the silver screen was only seeming to grow, but this period certainly contained some of the saddest chapters in Who history: the death of the seemingly indestructible Keith Moon, the passing of previous manager Kit Lambert, and the Cincinnati stampede that left many fans injured or deceased. However, the records the group made during these trying times remain as solid as anything that any group of humans could hope to churn out under such dire circumstances.This transitional time that saw the band bring drummer Kenney Jones into the fray and allowing an outside keyboardist to appear on the stage with the group in the form of John "Rabbit" Bundrick. Meanwhile, Pete Townshend's solo successes sometimes overshadowed those of his main group. Join host, Marc With A C, for this highly emotional episode leading us into some of the most hotly debated moves that The Who would ever make. And to think... we're only half of the way through this season!This episode we explore Rough Mix, Who Are You, The Kids Are Alright, McVicar, the soundtrack version of Quadrophenia, Empty Glass, Face Dances, Too Late The Hero, All The Best Cowboys Have Chinese Eyes, and a few other assorted sundries from this era!
