    Not sure if this will be a duplicate? I posted this once and it never showed up for me.
    None of you cretins have anything to say?

    Anyway, Rick Beato on the year that was 1991.

      I thought it went without saying they were all amazing.

      Freddie King alone has 20 great songs.

      And Albert King is what Albert King is.

          I was absolutely fixated on the Who from 15 through 17 so if you have any questions I'm your guy.

            I received “Who’s Next” on vinyl for Xmas and love it. But, for novices like me, where would you suggest I start with their catalog to begin a deep dive?

              • Probably everyone would say Who's Next.

                I never went as deep into the Who as Kep, and to me, I like them well enough, but don't consider myself a diehard fan. Pre-Tommy stuff I'm not that familiar with, and anything after Moon died is probably not necessary. Probably can't go wrong with anything between Tommy and Who Are You. Everyone raves about Tommy as being the definitive 'rock opera' but I always preferred Quadrophenia.

                After that would be Townshend's Empty Glass, and maybe Chinese Eyes. The latter is pretentious and arty, but if you have a high enough tolerance for that sort of thing, it's a wonderful record. To me, it's a masterpiece.

                  To begin:

                  See the movie The Kids Are Alright

                  Who's Next
                  Tommy
                  Quadrophenia

                  Then see the movie of Quadrophenia, which is the best genre rock and roll movie ever made. Hard Day's Night and Woodstock can suck it.

                  For depth:

                  Who Are You
                  Live at Leeds
                  Meaty, Beaty, Big and Bouncy

                  Then see the movie of Tommy but be warned, this is not good. It's strictly for canon.

                  After that it gets dicey. There are a few wonderful tracks on Who By Numbers (Blue, Red and Grey, Squeeze Box, Slip Kid) and Odds and Sods (I'm the Face, Long Live Rock), and a lot of misses.

                  Beginning with Face Dances, Townshend's enormous ego swallowed the band and they became tiresome and unlistenable. (c.f. Genesis, Collins; Pink Floyd, Waters)



                  Extra Credit: see the BBC production of A Comedy of Errors with Daltrey as Dromio. I think he's hilarious (my theatre brethren do not agree).

                  The Who were amazing because every one of the four contributed a different, non-overlapping value. Townshend had the musical skill and imagination, Daltrey had the front man power and the cutting sincerity, Entwistle was witty and the personification of cool bass, Moon was clinically insane and hysterically funny. Like a lot of bands (Stones, Beatles, Zep) they excreted great music from the struggle of two titanic and violent egos and for as long as they maintained that tension we got amazing art punctuated by sex and anger. I love this band.

                  I only saw them in 1981 after they had jumped the shark and were already pretty tired, but my god I wish I had seen them around the time of Live at Leeds. Kids: that was what "rock and roll" was.

                        • I always like seeing the Classic Albums episode on Who’s Next. Nice in depth look into the album and it’s making of.

                          The only later song I’d mention is Eminence Front.

                          • I saw them in '96 doing Quadrophenia in its entirety, along with an encore of select hits. Billy Idol played the Ace Face. Terrific show.

                            Also the show that introduced me opening act Ocean Colour Scene. Noel Gallagher's favorite band.

                                Guh. De gustibus non est disputandum, but man I hate that song. It's Burning Down the House. Catchy but guh.
