The Who Who Are You on LP  

Vinyl Reissue Pressed at Quality Record Pressing

Sadly burdened with being the last studio recording to feature drummer Keith Moon and thus closing the chapter on The Who's legendary original line-up, this 1978 release was also a major progression, not unlike what The Beatles and The Beach Boys undertook as they matured from their simple, rudimentary but still unforgettable early years.
 
In the three years following the release of Who By The Numbers, band members had undertaken solo projects and other individual interests. Finally reuniting after such an unusually long hiatus, they recorded Who Are You between late 1977 and early '78, in a variety of London-area studios. Without a doubt, everyone in the world would have welcomed recycledWho akin to their first decade of hits, but simple, catchy rock riffs were to be superseded in more complex subjects and daring arrangements.
 
Pete Townshend's observations of moving on and saying farewell ("Sister Disco"), the creative process ("Guitar and Pen"), FM radio and its banal recycled music ("Music Must Change") and battles with alcohol ("Who Are You") are some of his most poignant compositions. Bassist John Entwistle contributes three songs, the most on any one Who album, with "905," "Had Enough" and "Trick Of The Light," reflecting some of his finest, often-overlooked, work.
 
The album peaked at #2 on the pop chart in the U.S., most likely prevented from going #1 by the Grease soundtrack. The lone single released, the title song "Who Are You" would become a concert staple, often expanded into a jam for Townshend's guitar heroics, and then be licensed out in 2000 for the opening theme to the hit television show CSI: Crime Scene Investigations.
