A great, great book. This book was invaluable to me in starting my collection. First issued in 1981, then revised in 1982.

The Who Maxium R&B

Issued in 1982 with a flexi-disc of Pete Townshend demos of "My Generation" and "Pinball Wizard". Tons of great pictures and the "story" of The Who. Until I saw the mini-discography in the back of this book, I thought I had "all" the Who records (17 by 9/82). Boy, was I wrong!

The Who Maxium R&B

Revised (updated) edition - 1998. (I spent about 5 hours on the phone getting the Discography updated.)

The Who (Italy)

Before I Get Old - The Story Of The Who

Extensive book about the history of The Who. I find the book to be a little "lobsided" as it seems to be much more concentrated on their early years (perhaps the author found those more interesting) and too light on their later years. For example, the author lumps "Face Dances" and "It's Hard" together by saying they are "too personal". This might be true of "Face Dances", but not at all of "It's Hard"

The Who: The Farewell Tour (Canada)

The Who

Popshop-Ratsel (Germany)

The Comedy Of Errors (UK)
