The Who Sell Out is the third studio album by British rock band The Who, originally released in December 1967 by Decca Records.

Pete Townshend originally planned The Who Sell Out as a concept album of sorts that would simultaneously mock and pay tribute to pirate radio stations, complete with fake jingles and commercials linking the tracks. For reasons that remain somewhat ill defined, the concept wasn't quite driven to completion, breaking down around the middle of side two. Nonetheless, on strictly musical merits, it's a terrific set of songs that ultimately stands as one of the group's greatest achievements.

"I Can See For Miles" (a Top Ten hit) is The Who at their most thunderous; tinges of psychedelia add a rush to "Armenia City In The Sky" and "Relax"; "I Can't Reach You" finds Townshend beginning to stretch himself into quasi-spiritual territory; while "Tattoo" and the acoustic "Sunrise" show his introspective, vulnerable sides that had previously been hidden. "Rael" was another mini-opera, with musical motifs that reappeared in Tommy.

The album is as perfect a balance between melodic mod pop and powerful instrumentation as The Who would achieve; psychedelic pop was never as jubilant, not to say funny (the fake commercials and jingles interspersed between the songs are a hoot).

A classic chunk of Who and a highpoint in 60s pop.

Check out the tracks: “I Can See For Miles” and “Mary Anne With The Shaky Hand”.

This LP with remastered audio and reproduced artwork is pressed in Europe on 180 gram heavyweight vinyl.
