Back in time

14 August 2021

Active: 1964–1983, 1989, 1996–1997, 1999–present
12 studio albums

Birthday album: WHO’S NEXT – 5th LP
Released: 14 August 1971 – 50 years ago today

Rolling Stone: “Who’s Next, regardless of what you may have been led
to believe to the contrary, is neither the soundtrack to the realization of
Pete Townshend‘s apparently-aborted Hollywood dream, the greatest live
album in the history of the universe, nor a, shudder, rock opera, but rather
an old fashioned long-player containing intelligently-conceived, superbly-
performed, brilliantly-produced, and sometimes even exciting rock and roll.”

Turn Up The Volume: For me, it’s the album with two of their A-number-1
singles (see/hear below) and the stirring ballads The Song Is Over and Behind
Blue Eyes

Singles: Baba O’Riley / Won’t Get Fooled Again

THE WHO Released ‘WHO’s NEXT’ Album 48 Year Ago – Here’s Single’ WON’T GET FOOLED AGAIN’…

Knockouts from the past

14 August 2019

Band: The Who
Song: Won’t Get Fooled Again
Album: Who’s Next – Released 14 August 1971, 48 years ago today
Note 1: The single peaked at #9 in the UK / at #15 in America
Note 2: Despite the fact that frontman Roger Daltrey is a fervent Brexit fan – well,
he was never the smartest Who member – I’m sure Great-Britain is fooled again
with Boris ‘Me Myself And I’ Johnson, an English 21st Century politician who thinks
the Great British Empire still exist. Talking about a nationalistic fool!

Now back to history/the present…
