Description

Offered for sale is a U.S. pressing of the compilation album Magic Bus: The Who on Tour by the Who.

The title is misleading; the album consists of previously-released studio tracks and is not a live album.

About this copy: This copy of Magic Bus is a 1971 U.S. pressing on the Decca label of an album that was originally released in 1968.

The cover is M- with no wear.  The upper right hand corner has been cut.    The original generic Decca inner sleeve is M-.

The disc is M- with one or two very faint sleeve scuffs.  There are no spindle marks on the labels.  Clean disc!

A nice copy of a scarce Who LP.

Background: Released only in the U.S. and Canada in 1968, Magic Bus: The Who on Tour is a compilation album by the Who.

The album contains the then-new “Magic Bus” single, some tracks from Happy Jack and The Who Sell Out, and some tracks that were previously released as B-sides of singles.

The album reached #39 on the U.S. album chart.

Allmusic.com gave Magic Bus: The Who on Tour a 3 star review:

A rip-off of sorts even upon its original release, with a few senseless repeats of tracks from Quick One and Who Sell Out, as well as a sleeve that erroneously implied a live recording. This mishmash of singles, B-sides, and stray tracks from past British releases did have some fine moments…. Completists should know that one song, Entwistle’s typically black-humored “Dr. Jekyll & Mr. Hyde,” is unavailable on any other U.S. release, so it’s not time to throw away your copy of Magic Bus just yet.
