The Who: Epilogue - Compilations, Remixes, & Rarities
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? This might be your favorite episode of Discography yet! For information regarding your data privacy, visit acast.com/privacy
The Who: 2002-2018 - Then & Now to As Long as I Have You
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
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!
