Today, April 23, brings with it the release of a new Super Deluxe revisiting of The Who Sell Out, the English rock legends‘ classic 1967 studio album.

The band’s third studio album, The Who Sell Out was an ambitious concept album featuring fake commercials interspersed throughout the music, a reaction of sorts from the band to its then-burgeoning success on a major level.

The Super Deluxe features a wealth of material spread across 112 tracks, spanning 5 CDs and two 7″ singles. Among the treasure trove of material will be 14 previously unreleased Pete Townshend demos (out of 46 total unreleased tracks on the set).

The ‘Super Deluxe’ title is definitely earned with this release, which packs in has to be every last bit of material associated with the album sessions, and beyond:

The new Super Deluxe Edition of The Who Sell Out features 112 tracks, 46 of which are unreleased, an 80-page, hard-back, full-color book, including rare period photos, memorabilia, track-by-track annotation and new sleeve notes by Pete Townshend with comments from the likes of Pete Drummond (Radio London DJ), Richard Evans (designer) & Roy Flynn (the Speakeasy Club manager).
