Re: odd question

I believe the official title is THE WHO BY NUMBERS.  (By The Who.) ;-)

> I guess this also is relevent for "The Who Sell Out"/"Sell Out". 

Again, I believe the title is THE WHO SELL OUT.

The confusion lies in their usage of the band name *in* the titles.  
For example, we don't say THE WHO'S NEXT or THE WHO'S MISSING or THE 

But THE WHO SELL OUT & THE WHO BY NUMBERS is printed *on* the album 
covers in exactly that manner.

It's not THE WHO - Sell out.  Or THE WHO: By Numbers.  In both these 
cases the titles include the phrase "THE WHO," IMO.

Good question.
