The Who / Track Records Singles Box

whotrack3

The Track Records Singles Box, the third volume of boxed Who singles will be released next month.

This set follows Brunswick and Reaction boxes but is a much bigger than both containing 15 seven-inch singles from the band’s Tracks Records era – featuring 45s like Pinball Wizard, I Can See For Miles and Won’t Get Fooled Again.

The singles are all pressed on heavyweight vinyl with paper sleeves (reproducing the period graphics front and back with die-cut centre holes). They come housed in a rigid ‘lid-and-tray’ outer box. This comes with a 20-page colour booklet with liner notes about each release and period memorabilia.

The Track Records Singles Box is released on 30 October 2015.

    Wow there'[s a run of top notch singles and no mistake. I ducked the last one because of the price – wonder if this will be similarly pricey. Shame as the Brunswick set was really well done

    Well,I managed to get the Brunswick set for about €50.-,and the Reaction set for about €45.-.
    This new one will set me back(at jpc)another €112.-(I get a discount there).
    I estimate another about €80.- for the Polydor set sometime in December.
    End result:about €285.- for just The Who’s singles,which all in all is VERY expensive IMHO!
    My solution:I placed the first two sets up for sale at Ebay.Will I sell them I will not buy the Track and Polydor sets;if not I will keep all four of them.
    Let fate decide!!

    Boring. Why don’t they release these with selected European picture sleeves? Far more appealing.

    • Stan Butler says:

      Pictures sleeves would be nice, but I guess it’s for the authenticity of the original blank UK sleeves. What a glorious bunch of songs though. Unbelievable that Baba O’Reilly was not released as a single in the UK.

      “Dogs” has been criminally ignored over the years on most Who compilations. Wonderful track. Makes me smile every time I listen to it. Much better than “Boris”, which wasn’t even a single but yet gets onto every compilation album. That’s always baffled me.

    I love The Who, but at $174 or £100, are you kidding me? I can do without.
