Odds and Sods

London and New York: Track / MCA, 1974. Original promotional poster for the 1974 album.

In the autumn of 1973, while members of The Who were preparing for the film version of "Tommy," John Entwistle was put in charge of compiling an album to counter the widespread bootlegging of the band's concerts. "I tried to arrange it like a parallel sort of Who career—what single and album tracks we might have released, " Entwistle explained.

Two albums' worth of material was compiled, but in 1974 only a single album was released. The second "album's worth" came out on the 1998 remastered CD release. The original album's popular highlight is "Long Live Rock," a staple at the band's live shows.

30 x 20 inches. Rolled, on archival linen. Fine.
