LP Comments: Some odd variations internationally. Several countries reversed front and back covers - preferring the more prominent "Who presence" on the front cover. Germany initially printed their LPs with the "reversed" covers, then changed production back to the "common" cover. In addition to artwork variations, the track listings varied on several versions (see below). 

The album features the alternate studio version of "I'm A Boy" (which begins with Roger Daltrey's vocals vs. Pete Townshend's) and a longer studio version of "Magic Bus" (an even longer version was released on "The Who Collection Volume 2")

CD Comments: The USA & Canada CD replace "Magic Bus" (the original LP, long, simulated stereo version) with the short, stereo version of the song (a poor dub of the version which was featured on the 1968 USA & Canada "Magic Bus" LP). However, the Japan CD uses the original LP version.

Track Listing (Common Version): I Can't Explain, The Kids Are Alright, Happy Jack, I Can See For Miles, Pictures Of Lily, My Generation, The Seeker, Anyway, Anyhow, Anywhere, Pinball Wizard, A Legal Matter, Boris The Spider, Magic Bus, Substitute, I'm A Boy

Track Listing (Alternate Version): Happy Jack, The Kids Are Alright,  Pictures Of Lily, My Generation, The Seeker, Circles, Let's See Action, Pinball Wizard, Boris The Spider, Magic Bus, Substitute, I'm A Boy
