Review: The Who – The Who Hits 50 (Deluxe Edition) (Universal Music Canada)

The WhoGiven the seemingly endless string of hits compilations from The Who, one might question the need of adding yet another collection to the mix. But in their defense, if there is one definitive compilation to have in your collection, it would be The Who Hits 50. The collection gathers early tracks like “I Can’t Explain,” and “My Generation” along with mid-career material (“Won’t Get Fooled Again”) and late-era gems “Eminence Front” and “You Better You Bet.” In addition to their decent new track “Be Lucky,” The Who Hits 50 also sprinkles in some deep catalogue cuts like “Trick Of The Light” and “Postcard,” helping cement the collection as so much more than a routine run through their impressive past.
