The explosive British rock group, The Who, was one of the most influential bands of the 20th Century, selling over 100 million records worldwide and influencing the music and stage performances of other artists.
The Who's sense of humor is on full display in this outstanding memorabilia collection, which showcases their 1967 album, The Who Sell Out, hand-signed by all four members of The Who: Roger Daltrey, Pete Townshend, John Entwistle, and Keith Moon.
Their third studio release, the Sell Out album wryly answered raised eyebrows over the band making real commercials during that time by interspersing fake ones throughout and featuring exaggerated real product promotion on the cover. The album was met with lawsuits and objections over the negative product images it projected, and meanwhile was embraced by fans and critics. It charted at #13 in the UK and #48 in the US, and the anthemic single, "I Can See For Miles," reached the top 10 in both countries.
Framed alongside the LP is a limited edition photograph of the band standing quizzically underneath signs that appear to advertise prostitutes, with the caption "Who's Next." The photo is numbered 64/500.
