Its amazing what you stumble over when looking at Who stuff.
It all started with this:
This month's Uncut Magazine have an article about "The 50 Greatest Lost
Album" of all time.
At number 1, and on the magazine's cover, is Neil Young's "Time Fade's
"Believe it or not, there are still official releases by The Who, Van
Morrison - even The Beatles - currently out of print.
Here's our pick, including an in-depth look at Neil Young's astonishing Time
So I wondered what Lost Who album they were thinking of.
Probably Lifehouse, I thought. Or one on many possible live albums.
But no, I found the list on a German website. Here's some of the list:
The 50 Greatest Albums Lost
Uncut , May 2010
1 Neil Young: Time Fades Away (1973)
2 Captain Beefheart & The Magic Band: Lick My Decals Off, Baby (1970)
3 Van Morrison: St Dominic's Preview (1972)
4 The Beatles: At The Hollywood Bowl (1977)
... lots of other stuff I've never heard of ...
17 The Who: Join Together (1990)
Huh? Join Together?
"Lost"? Surely "its available from all good record stores near you"? Its
on Amazon right now.
It was rereleased just a couple of years ago too.
Its not "lost" very well. They just need to look harder. Try looking down
the back of the sofa.
And "Great"? I hardly play it. It has a nice version of Tommy, and some
rarer live tracks. But nothing "great".
... anyway, that page made me notice this this new release:

it on Google shopping.
...which is how I ended my journey here:
