Originally released in 1966, A Quick One was The Who’s second album, designed to showcase the writing talents of the band, each of whom contribute songs. The stand-out track was the nine-minute mini opera “A Quick One, While He’s Away”, a sort of trial run for Tommy. Available here for the first time in remastered stereo, it also features various contemporary B-sides and most of the Ready Steady Who EP. Who’s Next (1971), which defined the group’s live set for the 1970s, here reappears in a two-disc Deluxe Edition, including a 75-minute live concert recorded at the Young Vic. The main album comes with six bonus tracks, plus extensive notes and new graphics. Top value, great music.
