The first ever recordings by The Who - "I'm The
Face" and "It Was You" !!!
(Click on the pictures above to hear a sound sample of each
In 1964, The Who went through several name changes after
evolving from The Detours. First they were The Who, then
The High Numbers and back to The Who again...
Before, they recorded "Zoot Suit" and "I'm The Face" (as The High Numbers),
The Who recorded these (2) two songs on May 11, 1964 and June 4, 1964,
As you can quickly tell from the sound sample, this version of "I'm The
Face" is very different than the one you are so familiar with. The
sample starts from the middle
instrumental section of the song to demonstrate the flavor of the differences. "It
Was You" is Pete Townshend's very first song! It was released by
The Naturals in 1964
and Chaos & Co in 1966, but never
by The Who. Hopefully these recordings will see a 2020 official release. You can

previous showcase About... The site is made up entirely of my personal collection. What started with a cassette
tape of Who Are You (pictured left) at the end of 1978 has grown to
more than 6,800 of The Who / The Who solo records, CDs and tapes.
Why? I found The Who to be a "unique band" - different
and so much better than anything else I've ever heard. As I listened to their
music, the more I was drawn in. At some point, I was listening to "The Who music" almost exclusively.
I began buying more... I initially started "collecting" in order to have every released
Who and Who solo song available. Ed Hanel's "The Illustrated The Who Discography" (pictured
became my collecting 'bible'.
I soon learned that
not every Who record or CD was "created equal". Albums that
I thought were "bad", were merely "bad pressings", which could be found
elsewhere (i.e. from other countries) with much better sound quality. (Good
sound quality helps you enjoy the music. Bad sound quality is a
distraction and hurts the music.) In the process of seeking out the best
recordings <of The Who> from around the globe, my collection began to grow. Eventually, it
became a matter of, "another cool picture!"
all recordings by The Who are not created equal, I have added audiophile sound quality reviews under each
album section to help you decide - what's the best source for you.
My collection, while quite large, is by no means "complete". As with any
collection, there's always more to be collected. Please come back from
time-to-time and look for updates as I'm adding to my collection almost daily ...
