Released: 1965
Number: Mono: DL 4664 Stereo: DL 74664
Produced by Shel Talmy
Recorded in England

'I Don't Mind' and 'Please,Please, Please' are covers of
tracks by James Brown. This album was created by the fusion of two different styles of recordings; one R&B, the other Pop/Rock
The british version substituted the song 'I'm a man' for 'instant party (circles)'

An excerpt from the notes of the LP:

"1965 will go down as the year of the WHO. It was in January of that year that a Decca recording entitled 'I Can't Explain' captured the musical fancy of the record buying public and became a best seller. The performing personality known simply as the who. Then followed the inevitable question: what is the who, or more precisely, who is the who?...

...We at Decca take great pleasure in presenting, for the first time, England's hottest new group... ...The WHO

The 2LP version is very nice, but only available through the UK. The cd and LP both have lots of great information on them about the album and songs. 'I'm a man' was only released previously on the UK album and 'Two's Missing'.
Beautifully packaged, the LPs come with one brunswick label and one pink decca label.
