The british musical magazine "Mojo" realise from time to time music on physical format, usually such as: tributes, compilations, live bootlegs and similar stuff. In 2006 this magazine to make this good but quite unknown tribute to the undisputtable Mod Culture fathers. THE WHO. A total of twenty bands (a song per band) which you could to buy next to the magazine or just the CD. The cover art, back and artwork in general is a little bit simple and easy, but the true is it's enough, because the songs (covers) inside are very good. From famous bands (The Jam, Oasis, Ramones...) to less known (Fastball, Lord Sitar, Sandy Nelson...), but a very good balance. Good tribute no doubt.

"It's Hard" is the tenth studio album by English rock band The Who. It is the last Who album to feature their bassist John Entwistle and their drummer Kenney Jones, as well as the last to be released on Warner Bros. Records in the US. It was their last album until 2006's Endless Wire with the last two members of the original 1964 lineup. It was released in 1982 on Polydor Records in the UK, peaking at #11, and on Warner Bros. in the US where it peaked at #8 on the Billboard Pop Albums charts. The US rights to both this album and Face Dances subsequently reverted to the band, who then licensed them to MCA Records (later Geffen Records, itself once distributed by WB) for reissue. The album achieved gold status by the RIAA in the US in November 1982. The Who were not a mod / pop band at all in this album, but a super band which recorded long albums of huge and enormous hard / progressive rock with a high level production work, but after all... when I bought "It's hard" I liked at first listening.

"The Kids Are Alright" is a soundtrack album by British rock band The Who, as a companion to the band's documentary film of the same name. It was originally released as a double album in June 1979 on Polydor Records in the UK and MCA Records in the US. The performance of "My Wife" was from a concert The Who filmed for The Kids Are Alright at the Gaumont State Cinema in Kilburn; however the footage was not used in the film. That show was later restored for DVD and released as The Who At Kilburn: 1977 in 2008. "Tommy Can You Hear Me" had a longer outro with Roger Daltrey repeating the word "Tommy" before Keith Moon screams "'Ello!" to end the song. The soundtrack album did well in the US and peaked at #8 on the Billboard album chart and went platinum whilst it peaked at a disappointing #26 on the UK charts.

Tommy is the fourth studio album by the English rock band The Who, a double album first released in May 1969. The album was mostly composed by guitarist Pete Townshend as a rock opera that tells the story about a deaf, dumb and blind boy, including his experiences with life and his relationship with his family. Townshend came up with the concept of Tommy after being introduced to the work of Meher Baba, and attempted to translate Baba's teachings into music. Recording on the album began in September 1968, but took six months to complete as material needed to be arranged and re-recorded in the studio. Tommy was acclaimed upon its release by critics, who hailed it as the Who's breakthrough. Its critical standing diminished slightly in later years; nonetheless, several writers view it as an important and influential album in the history of rock music. The Who promoted the album's release with an extensive tour, including a live version of Tommy, which lasted throughout 1969 and 1970. Key gigs from the tour included appearances at Woodstock, the 1969 Isle of Wight Festival, the University of Leeds, the Metropolitan Opera House and the 1970 Isle of Wight Festival. The live performances of Tommy drew critical praise and rejuvenated the band's career. Subsequently, the rock opera developed into other media, including a Seattle Opera production in 1971, an orchestral version by Lou Reizner in 1972, a film in 1975, and a Broadway musical in 1992. The original album has sold 20 million copies and has been inducted into the Grammy Hall of Fame. It has been reissued several times on CD, including a remix by Jon Astley in 1996, a deluxe Super Audio CD in 2003, and a super deluxe box set in 2013, including previously unreleased demos and live material. In 1975 the album "Tommy" became also on film format, so on soundtrack too. But this second time doesn't participe only The Who but many other artists as Eric Clapton, Tina Turner, Elton John, etc. Here below you can see the cover of "Tommy" soundtrack.
