[UPDATE] 5CD Who Classic Super Deluxe Box, My Generation

the-who-sde-my-generation-5cdWe all know that the upcoming Who reissue of My Generation is on its way. And many of us of are pleased as can be with the content that the five CDs will contain. If you haven’t discovered them already, well, I’ll recount them here for you:

The five CDs will offer 79 tracks including a newly remastered version of the original twelve mono tracks. The other four bonus discs include one with a stereo remix of the classic 1965 album. The next two combine to present forty-four alternate tracks, some previously unavailable. The third disc handles those in Mono, while the 4th explores the Stereo mixes. The remaining fifth disc is filled with eleven re-discovered demos tracks.

The set will add in an 80-page hard bound book that will appeal to fans with its filled treasure chest of photos, essays, notes, credits, and memorabilia from the classic period that surrounds the original album.

The 5CD Super Deluxe Box will be released on November 18.

A 5-Disc Super Deluxe Edition The Who Box Is Coming For My Generation

thewho_mygener_coverar_500dpi300rgb1000160228For many of the heavy hitters in Rock and Roll history, there has been multiple editions of classic albums. For The Who, that’s especially true. However, in this day and age of classic albums, in order to get people newly interested in a new acquisition of an old and oft reissued title, you have to offer an increasingly better and better product. That seems to be the way most reissues of classics are going with affordable Super Deluxe Editions.

On November 18, in the UK for now, there will be a 5-disc Super Deluxe Edition of the classic 1965 Who set, My Generation. Currently, there is no insider info to be had as of yet. The general assumption is that the set will contain the original Mono mix, a 2014 Stereo remix, along with a collection of demos and singles, b-sides, etc, etc. And while five CDs seem a bit much, it will be interesting to see just what will be in the box.

Certainly, a hard-bound book is an inevitable inclusion.

I’ll update as I get more info.
