Album 365: Day 137 - The Who - Who's Last

The Who
Who's Last

Favorite tracks: Dr. Jimmy, Love Reign O'er Me, Long Live Rock
Sleeper tracks: Magic Bus, Twist and Shout

A 'farewell', live record.

I purchased this with Christmas money when I was 12 or 13.  I got enough money to get a new Walkman.  My aunt Lisa and I went to American (electronics store in Appleton) to purchase the item.  She talked me into getting an AIWA player (a step up from what I was going to get) and even gave me the extra money to help with the difference.  I was able to purchase this record as well.  I was a very happy boy.  Add this little story to the list of tales that make Lisa a great influence in my life.

The album is a pretty good recording of one of the band's last shows in 1982.  I'm not a fan of the Kenny Jones era drums but I've listened to this record enough times to appreciate him as a member of the band for this time period.
