A Quick One is the Who's most delightfully unfocused album, a weaving roll through the band's most democratic period. Bassist John Entwistle contributed two songs (including "Boris the Spider," probably his most endearing composition); drummer Keith Moon did, too (the instrumental "Cobwebs and Strange" encapsulates his boozy, woozy charm in two and a half minutes). Singer Roger Daltrey wrote one song, and there's a cover of the Martha & the Vandellas hit "Heat Wave. It's the moment where they broke from the rest of the pack and on their way to bigger and bolder projects. The Who Albums Ranked.

The Who Sell Out. By. Rolling Stone. This album is fantastic, it has an exquisite sense of humor (songs of the humbly homespun) and consummate musicianship. The cover, of course, is amazingly funny: deodorant, pimple cream, baked beans and the Charles Atlas course, each shot perfectly suited to the character of the person in the group. It’s almost too English. The first thing you are going to see are the commercial plugs and Radio London spots. They take various forms; the cover is the first.

The Who Sell Out is Townshend's first (and best) album-length concept piece, paving the way for the full-blown operatic sprawl of Tommy and Quadrophenia. On Sell Out, a satirical yet celebratory look at the folly of Top 40 radio, Townshend successfully does what he would overdo in the two operas. Every song shines-none are mere transitions to the next part of the story-and the mock ads and jingles are hilarious. Composed of random repeats of songs from A Quick One and Sell Out, a few B-sides and EP tracks, it's a hodgepodge of wrong turns and dead ends. In retrospect, Tommy isn't quite the masterpiece it was hyped to be when it first appeared.

The Who Sell Out by The Who Audio CD £. 9. 'A Quick One While He's Away'' is Townshend's first attempt at a rock opera, perhaps the first in pop music. It's a suite of six episodes, comprising a simple tale of an unfaithful wife who has a quick leg-over with a lover called Ivor and is happily absolved by her husband. Each is a self-contained song, the whole spliced together in much the same way as Abbey Road's long medley would be, three years later
