Description

Offered for sale is an early U.S. (rechanneled) stereo pressing of My Generation, the debut LP from The Who.

About this copy: This copy of My Generation is a 1967 U.S. pressing on the Decca label of an album that was first released in 1965.  This LP was pressed at MCA’s Pickneyville, Illinois pressing plant.

The cover is VG, with moderate general wear and some residue from a price sticker in the upper right hand corner.

The disc is VG+ on side one, with a couple of light marks.  Side two is VG++ with a couple of sleeve scuffs.  It’s a fairly clean copy that has been treated well.

A nice copy of an album that is usually found in poor condition.

Background: My Generation (released as The Who Sings My Generation in the U.S.) is regarded as one of the most significant debut albums in rock history.  While the album failed to make the charts in the United States when released in 1966, the 1965 UK release reached #5 on the UK charts.

The UK version of the album included a track, “I’m a Man,” that was not included on the U.S. or Japanese release (It was replaced by “Instant Party.”)

Allmusic.com gave My Generation a rare 5 star review:

An explosive debut, and the hardest mod pop recorded by anyone. At the time of its release, it also had the most ferociously powerful guitars and drums yet captured on a rock record. Pete Townshend’s exhilarating chord crunches and guitar distortions threaten to leap off the grooves on “My Generation” and “Out in the Street”; Keith Moon attacks the drums with a lightning, ruthless finesse throughout. … While the execution was sometimes crude, and the songwriting not as sophisticated as it would shortly become, the Who never surpassed the pure energy level of this record.
