The Who released a Record Store Day Exclusive for the April 2018 edition of the event. The album was ‘The Kids Are Alright’ and the release was a double LP, colored vinyl edition.

First up, what do I like about this release?
Well, there is quite a lot actually. The sound for starters. The quality of the sound coming out of the speakers for this album are sensational. It sounds so crisp and clear and just begs to be cranked up so loud the walls shake and with an opening song like “My Generation”, how could you not oblige.
I mentioned that it was a double LP and colored vinyl and it is just that. I love the red & blue colors and it feels like a 3rd LP would be good with a white color to complete the Union Jack color scheme, but sadly only 2.
The track listing is great as well. It has the same 17 tracks as the original and they have been remastered beautifully. What are the 17 tracks? Easy, here are they are…
