  • Remastered By, Lacquer Cut ByMiles*


Gatefold sleeve including 44-page booklet.
Made in the E.U.
℗© 1973 Polydor Ltd. UK.

Record 1 has the catalog number "2780505" on both labels.
Record 2 has the catalog number "2780506" on both labels.

Recorded at The Kitchen in Thessaly Road, Battersea, while building was still in progress.
Ronnie Lane's Mobile Sound served as control room while ours was being finished.
Mixed at Eel Pie Sound.

Mod kid played by Chad. Hair by Dallas Amos.

This version is similar to the 2011 reissue, but has two different sets of stampings and etchings in the runouts: whilist sides A & B were sourced from the "Metropolis" stampers of the aforementioned 2011 reissue; sides C & D were sourced from a newer, "Abbey Road" cut instead.
However, both cuts were made by Miles Showell.

Release date 2019 is not proven, merely deducted from buying date and the fact, that this version has hardly been referenced in Discogs or other Vinyl forums yet (04/2020).

    Amazing amazing amazing. I wholeheartedly recommend these GZ media Track Record pressings from The Who.

      Good, clean pressing. Very loud music, a little harsh on guitars and vocals are a bit in the back. Sleeve and book are great, and album itself is a masterpiece.

        Is this an analogue pressing from the original tapes or a digital pressing?

          OK this is strange. I just bought it today and side one appears to be done at Metropolis Mastering. Side two has the Abbey Road Room 20 etchings....anyway it sounds great so far. For the price this is a no brainer. I am not familiar with the original pressing however, although I do own the 7 1/2 isp Magtape factory reel to reel tape>
