The Who / The Polydor Singles 1975-205

Volume four of a four part set of classic Who singles by labels (Brunswick, Reaction, Track and Polydor), released to coincide with the band’s 50th Anniversary. 15 x 7” singles from the band’s Polydor Records era (1975-2015) – pressed on heavyweight vinyl with card picture sleeves (where applicable) reproducing the period graphics front and back. Includes classic hits –‘Squeeze Box / Who Are You / You Better You Bet / Eminence Front (scheduled for release in the UK where sleeves were printed but never released) / ‘Real Good-Looking Boy’ & ‘Be Lucky’  The single that never was Eminence Front is included here which is a standout song from the circa Kenney Jones era. Ive always preferred Who Are You album version opposed to the single edit. 5:15/I’m One is ok with remixed versions from the original 1973 sessions by Entwistle for the Quadrophenia film soundtrack
