(Rex) Classic Collection of Who Photos Nov 14, 2006
A thoroughly impressive collection of superb-quality photos of one of the sixtie's and rock 'n' roll's seminal rock groups. From their early mod beginnings right through to their post-millenium world tours, the Rex Collections photographic treatment of The Who's history should be a collector's item for all serious fans of The Who.
Heavy on the early years, thin on the rest Jan 20, 2006
This collection was a bit of a disappointment for me. As the cover displayed on the product info is a 70's era shot, I expected this book to cover that time frame. The book I received has a cover shot from 1965 and better reflects the content of the book. The first 93 pages cover 1964-June 1967, but only 40 pages cover the following ten years, for me the height & most interesting stage of The Who's career. The last 23 pages cover the Kenny era to the present.
The photos themselves are excellent quality and large on the page. Some are often-seen favorites; quite a few are ones I haven't seen before, sometimes alternate shots from familiar sessions/shows. I have no argument with the quality of the book; it just doesn't have the material I was looking for. If you prefer early-era Who, this is the book for you.
