sounds fairly dark, the bass and drum specially sound as if they are in another room (the bass sounds like that the most, almost no definition, all bloated), the guitar sounds sometimes (when there's a bridge or solo) as if it's about to clip, if you don't mind these issues i can recommend it, very little soft clicks every now and then, which is also not great but not too bad, no pops or louder stuff. The 180gr of wax is nice too.

Great sounding cut of the original mono mix of this album (the only way to listen to this album). Also, a hell of a lot cheaper than an original Brunswick, and better sounding than the U.S. Decca or MCA equivalents. I understand that there was another variation of this same issue that was cut by George Peckham ("A Poky Prime Cut" in the deadwax), but this one doesn't have any mastering info on the matrix. Any idea why another cut was done so soon after the original? Perhaps the Peckham one is a little hot, and being this album already distorts in spots naturally because of how it was recorded perhaps his cut exacerbated these issues? Either way, this issue sounds great. If you want to hear this album the way it was intended, this is the version to get.

this was the first ever who record released in the us back in the spring of 1966, this is a WLP copy of the very first decca mono issue wich means it was the first printing, this lp & sleeve is near impossible to find in nm or mint condition, my copy is vg++ and the lp itself is almost nm but id say vg++ like the sleeve, very rare, nice thick cardboard sleeve and great crisp sound, fantastic score for an lp almost 54 years old!!!

Does this pressing actually have "I'm a Man" on it? Is it the complete UK LP track lineup?

Its about what you would expect from a UK originals sound.
Somewhat loud, although its track dependent, and decently balanced.
Vocals usually take the clear front of the soundstage while the rest is pushed back about equally.
Separation is only okay however so it will be quite messily displayed much of the time.
It does have some shrieking guitars which can get really loud in the high end, especially on The Goods Gone, but bass is rarely very emphasized probably because of the cutting goals at the time.
Ideally you would need a remote for your amp to increase and lower the volume to tackle the level inconsistency in the recordings.
Not exactly an audiophile pressing but it its not to be expected. I would only recommend it to die hard fans and collectors.
To others the Classic Records reissue is likely the way to go.

Equipment Used:
Rega RP1 with Paratrace tipped Nagaoka MP-200 Cartridge
Cyrus 2 Amplifier
System Fidelity SF-3050 Tower Speakers
Custom made HQ Speaker Cables

This appears to be a second cover printing as well. The red text on thebottom rightof the album photo doesn't have the letters clipped on the bottom, whereas the nearly identical entry referenced above
(https://www.discogs.com/The-Who-My-Generation/release/7431204 ) has the bottom of the word Generation clipped ever so slightly.

this is the japanese edition of the who my generation 5oth ann 5 SHM cd box set that was avilable only in japan for a limited time a few years back, the worldwide release is still available online and elsewhere i suppose but this japan edition has the SHM japan only remastering, the box set came with a lot of great memorabilia and a beautiful coffee table photo book of the whos 1964/65 era, this also came with a sheet only for japan with all the lyrics and an essay on the whos my generation release. outside of that, the contents are the same as both us & uk releases of this from 2016........

I understood everything perfectly! I never heard that this was a promo release only, but since most copies sold do have the promo sticker my guess was that this was a promo issue. Your copy doesn't has a promo sticker, so my guess was wrong (and thank you for delivering the evidence). Apparently there were both copies with and without a promo sticker.

My copy doesn't show any tape residue along the edges. It has a stamp on the back cover though, like some other copies sold in the past. The stamp says 'Radio' somewhere, perhaps there is a connection between the promo sticker and the stamp? So far only guesses...

Regarding the misspelt 'Kigs are Alright' by the way... on my copy there is no 'G' instead of 'D', they just forgot to fully print the 'D' resulting in an opening at the curved right side of the letter. From a distance it might look like a 'G' though.
