Initially released in December 1967 and described latterly byRolling Stoneas "The Who's finest album"The Who Sell Outreflected a remarkable year in popular culture. As well as being forever immortalized as the moment when the counterculture and the ‘Love Generation' became a global phenomenon and ‘pop' began metamorphosing into ‘rock'.The Who Sell Outwas originally planned by Pete Townshend and the band's managers, Kit Lambert and Chris Stamp, as a loose concept album including jingles and commercials linking the songs stylized as a pirate radio broadcast. This concept was born out of necessity as their label and management wanted a new album and Townshend felt that he didn't have enough songs. The ground-breaking original plan forThe Who Sell Outwas to sell advertising space on the album but instead the band opted for writing their own jingles, paying tribute to pirate radio stations and to parody an increasingly consumerist society.
The homage to pop art is evident in both the advertising jingles and the iconic sleeve design created by David King, then art director at theSunday Times, and Roger Law who later created theSpitting ImageTV show. The sleeve features four advertising images, taken by renowned photographer David Montgomery of each band member: Odorono deodorant (Pete Townshend), Medac spot cream (Keith Moon), Charles Atlas (John Entwistle) and Roger Daltrey, Heinz Baked Beans. The story goes that Roger Daltrey caught pneumonia from sitting in the bath of cold beans for too long.
The Who Sell Outis a bold depiction of the period in which it was made, the tail-end of the ‘swinging 60s' meets pop art mixed with psychedelia and straight-ahead pop. It's a glorious blend of classic powerfulWhoinstrumentation, melodic harmonies, satirical lyrical imagery crystallized for what was only the group's third album. The record's ambition and scope is unrivalled byThe Who, or any other act from that period. Within the bold concept, were a batch of fabulous and diverse songs. "I Can See for Miles," a top ten hit at the time, is aWhoclassic. "Rael," a Townshend ‘mini-opera' with musical motifs that reappeared inTommyand the psychedelic blast of "Armenia City In The Sky" and "Relax" are among the very best material anyone wrote during the '60s. One of the most extraordinary albums of any era,The Who Sell OutisThe Who'slast ‘pop' album. Two years later cameTommy– a double concept album about a deaf, dumb and blind kid.

Who's Next is the fifth studio album by English rock band the Who. It developed from the aborted Lifehouse project, a multi-media rock opera written by the group's Pete Townshend as a follow-up to the band's 1969 album Tommy. The project was cancelled due to it's complexity and conflicts with Kit Lambert, the band's manager, but Townshend was persuaded to record the songs as a straightforward studio album. The Who recorded Who's Next with assistance from recording engineer Glyn Johns. After producing the song "Won't Get Fooled Again" in the Rolling Stones Mobile Studio, they relocated to Olympic Studios to record and mix most of the album's remaining songs. They made prominent use of the synthesizer on the album, particularly on "Won't Get Fooled Again" and "Baba O'Riley", which were both released as singles. The cover photo was shot by Ethan Russell and made reference to the monolith in the 1968 film 2001: A Space Odyssey.
