  • The Who - Quadrophenia (1973) The Who - Quadrophenia (1973)

  • The Who - Live At Leeds (1970) The Who - Live At Leeds (1970)

    The greatest live album of all time? Almost certainly

    The best of their early output and perhaps the most "fun" album of their career

    The original Who rarities collection is a great opportunity to pick up some of the band's forgotten non-album classics

  • The Who - Endless Wire (2006) The Who - Endless Wire (2006)

    The band's last studio album - defying all expectations by actually being pretty decent

  • The Who - 30 Years Of Maximum R&B (1994) The Who - 30 Years Of Maximum R&B (1994)

    A comprehensive box set containing rarities and classics - one for completists and Who fans that have somehow misplaced all of their other records

  • The Who - Who Are You (1978) The Who - Who Are You (1978)

    The Who's final album with Keith Moon is a mixed bag and should be approached with caution
