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! Be sure to check out our full index of every record discussed - over in our Reverb LP record bin!
