50th Anniversary Compilation on 180g Vinyl Double LP! Pressed at Quality Record Pressings!

There is no more significant a milestone in Rock Music than the 50th Anniversary. Alongside The Beatles and The Rolling Stones, The Who complete the holy trinity of British Rock bands that have the honor of celebrating that landmark. Through the decades, The Who redefined rock music as we know it and their influence continues in all areas of popular culture to this day.

The Who Hits 50 is the definitive collection of the band's greatest tracks from their very first recordings as The High Numbers right up to the present day with the brand new track "Be Lucky." A classic Who rocker, "Be Lucky" is The Who's first new material in eight years. The track was produced by Dave Eringa best known for his work with the Manic Street Preachers and Wilko Johnson + Roger Daltrey.

Recorded at the end of the summer at British Grove and Yellowfish Studios, "Be Lucky" features long time Who live players Zak Starkey (drums) and Pino Palladino (bass), with the keyboards being provided by ex Style Council and Dexys sideman Mick Talbot. In keeping with their ongoing support for Teenage Cancer charities, the band have donated their royalties from the song to Teen Cancer America, a charity founded in 2011 by Roger Daltrey and Pete Townshend.

"...for fair-weather fans or newcomers, it does its job well and has nice artwork to boot." -Stephen Thomas Erlewine, allmusic.com
