Remastered re-release of the debut full-length studio album by legendary British Rock band.
Besides the members of the Who, being Roger Daltrey (vocals), Pete Townshend (guitar), John Entwistle (bass) and Keith Moon (drums), the album features contributions by session musicians Nicky Hopkins (piano) and Jimmy Page (guitar) and vocal group the Ivy League.
The album was made immediately after The Who got their first singles on the charts and it was later dismissed by the band as something of a rush job that did not accurately represent their stage performance of the time.
While it didn't sell as well as later albums, peaking at #5 on the UK charts and failing to chart in the US, critics have since retrospectively rated it as one of the best Rock albums of all time, especially noting its hard sound unusual for the time, and presaging various Hard Rock styles such as Punk and Heavy Metal.
In 2003, "My Generation" was ranked number 237 on Rolling Stone Magazine's list of the 500 Greatest Albums of All Time, maintaining the rating on a 2012 revised list, and named The Second Greatest Guitar Album of All Time by Mojo Magazine.
In 2004, it was #18 in Q Magazine's list of the 50 Best British Albums Ever.
In 2006, it was ranked No. 49 in NME's list of the 100 Greatest British Albums.
In 2004, the title track was No. 11 in Rolling Stone magazine's list of the 500 greatest songs of all time.
In 2006, "The Kids Are Alright" was No. 34 in Pitchfork's list of the 200 greatest songs of the 1960s.
In June 2009, the edited 1966 US version of the album "The Who Sings My Generation" was selected for the National Recording Registry of the US Library of Congress. The album, deemed "culturally significant", will be preserved and archived. Writing for the BBC, Chris Jones described the album as "one of the most vital and important reasons to love Rock 'n' Roll".
