There is no more significant a milestone in Rock Music than the 50th Anniversary. Alongside The Beatles and The Stones, The Who complete the holy trinity of British Rock bands that have the honor of celebrating that landmark. Through the decades, The Who redefined rock music as we know it and their influence continues in all areas of popular culture to this day.
The Who Hits 50! is the definitive collection of the band's greatest tracks from their very first recordings as The High Numbers right up to the present day with the brand new track "Be Lucky." A classic Who rocker, the song is band's first new material in eight years. It was produced by Dave Eringa, best known for his work with the Manic Street Preachers and Wilko Johnson & Roger Daltrey. Recorded at the end of the summer at British Grove and Yellow Fish Studios, "Be Lucky" features long time Who live players Zak Starkey (drums) and Pino Palladino (bass) with the keyboards being provided by ex-Style Council and Dexys sideman Mick Talbot.
