The Who have today (1) released another digital EP in advance of the April 23 appearance of the Super Deluxe Edition of their landmark 1967 album The Who Sell Out. Additionally, leading concert streaming platform nugs.net have announced a new partnership with The Who, UMe, and Mercury Studios, for the livestream premiere of their Classic Albums documentary on the album.
The documentary examines this groundbreaking record in detail, with a deep dive into the original multi-track recordings, and new, exclusive interviews with Pete Townshend, Roger Daltrey, and other notables. Fans will be able to tune into the free livestream on Thursday, April 22 at 6pm PT/9pm ET at nugs.net/thewho.
The documentary will be available to stream on demand via nugs.net, the nugs.net YouTube page and The Who YouTube page from that date until Sunday, April 25 at 9pm PT/12am ET. Streaming is available worldwide with the exception of the UK and Ireland.
The new digital EP, The Stereo Bonus Tracks, is the third in a series of four that lead up to the release of the vastly expanded Super Deluxe Edition of The Who Sell Out. The box set will feature 112 tracks, 46 of them unreleased. The EP features:
“I Can See For Miles” (Full Version)
“Facts Of Life (aka Birds And Bees)” (Backing Track/2018 Mix)
“Magic Bus” (Take 6)
The Stereo Bonus Tracks was preceded by an EP featuring three of the advertising jingles recorded by The Who to link the songs on the LP, all previously unreleased in this form. The first EP in the series offered three of Pete Townshend’s demos for the LP, also previously unissued.
Among the unreleased features of the box set are studio outtakes, fly-on-the-wall versions of early takes of songs from the album sessions, and studio chat. Disc 5 of the set will comprise 14 of those original Townshend demos, exclusive to this edition.
The Super Deluxe Edition of The Who Sell Out is released on April 23. Pre-order it here.
