The Who : Direct Hits

$50.00

Direct Hits was the first official compilation of the Who’s music. And it would be notable on that basis alone, even though it was planned exclusively as a European release. But it did a lot more than that, reaching far beyond its intended audience and raising some listener’s consciousness along the way.

Description

Originally released in 1968 by fledgling UK indie label Track Records for the European market only, this compilation of five single sides plus various album cuts became an instant have on both sides of the Atlantic. Utilizing the original monaural mixes throughout, we’ve recreated one of the most sought-after collector’ items in classic rock. Rare mono masters of hits such as I Can See for Miles, Substitute, Happy Jack, I’m A Boy and Pictures of Lily never sounded so good. Mastered at Bernie Grundman Mastering in Hollywood by Chris Bellman and cut from the original full track mono takes on Classic’s ALL TUBE MONO cutting system – no mono cut on a stereo cutting system here! Pressed on Classic’s proprietary 200g Super Vinyl profile this reissue puts you closer to the master tape than any other LP – This LP is Brand New and Sealed by Classic Records.
