The Who Announce Super Deluxe ‘My Generation’ Reissue

The Who‘s 1965 debut album will make its way back to stores this fall — and it’s put on a whole bunch of extra weight over the years.

My Generation receives the super deluxe reissue treatment Nov. 18 with a five-disc box that adds “unreleased songs, demos, mixes, remasters, new notes from Pete Townshend, an 80-page book, rare memorabilia and much more” to the original track listing — including newly uncovered archival demos for the previously unreleased songs “The Girls I Could Have Had,” “As Children We Grew” and “My Own Love.”

You can listen to “The Girls I Could Have Had” (via Spotify) below.

“Gathering these demos for this collection has been enjoyable; it’s wonderful for me to have these tapes made 52 years ago to listen to. I hope you enjoy them,” said Pete Townshend in a press release. “They have a naiveté and innocence, a simplicity and directness, and an ingenuousness that reveals me as a young man struggling to keep up with the more mature and developed men around me. What an incredible group of strong, talented, young and engaging men they were!”

In addition to the CD box, the My Generation reissue will also be available on triple- and double-disc vinyl — both of which are set to arrive in stores next February. All formats are available to pre-order now; check out the complete track listing below.
