The Who’s time in New York City in 1968 can best be described as ‘lively’. Keith Moon’s antics with cherry bomb explosives had meant that the band had to move hotels. On the morning of the Fillmore rehearsal, the band were photographed for Life magazine by Art Kane and legend has it that they were so tired from Moon’s antics that they nodded off under the large Union Jack draped over them at the base of the Carl Schurz Monument in Morningside Park
Then and Now is a 2004 greatest hits compilation album by The Who released internationally by Polydor Records and by Geffen Records in the United States. It features 18 Who classics and two new tracks-"Real Good Looking Boy" and "Old Red Wine"-which were the first Who originals since "Dig" from Pete Townshend's 1989 album The Iron Man. "Real Good Looking Boy" is a tribute to Elvis Presley, and "Old Red Wine" is a tribute to former band member John Entwistle, who died in 2002.
Direct Hits is the first UK compilation album released by The Who. It collects singles, B-sides, and album tracks originally recorded for Reaction Records and Track Records between 1966 and 1968. Original UK issues of this album were released in both stereo and mono versions. The album was not a strong seller and was deleted in the early 1970s. This was the fourth UK LP released by The Who.
The Who have been with several labels over the years. In the United Kingdom and elsewhere outside North America, they were signed originally to Brunswick Records. In 1966, they moved to Polydor Records and took the rights to their Brunswick recordings with them. They created and moved to Track Records the following year with distribution by Polydor. They left Track in 1974 and returned to Polydor directly, remaining with the label ever since.

Formados em 1964, os The Who trouxeram uma incrível irreverência para o mundo da música. Inicialmente vistos como uma banda de singles (à custa do "hit" My Generation), o grupo estabelece-se pouco a pouco como pioneiro em vários estilos, entre os quais a música pop, o hard-rock, e o rock progressivo. Liderados pelo prolífico em ideias e conceitos, Pete Towshend (guitarra, voz), os The Who contavam ainda com o explosivo Keith Moon (bateria), o tecnicamente evoluído John Entwistle (baixo, voz), e com a agressividade do "front man" Roger Daltrey (voz)
The Who performed at the Fillmore East on April 5th and April 6th of 1968, marking the first English rock act to headline the newly christened venue, formerly the Village Theatre. They were originally scheduled to play two sets each night, but due to concerns about unrest following Martin Luther King J. s assassination in Memphis on April 4th, the Who combined two sets into one. Manager Kit Lambert recorded the shows, hoping to release them as a live album. The sound was restored by the Who’s longtime sound engineer, Bob Pridden, using the original four-track tapes. Disc One: 1. Summertime Blues 2. Fortune Teller 3. Tattoo 4. Little Billy 5. I Can’t Explain 6. Happy Jack 7. Relax 8. I’m A Boy 9. A Quick One 10. My Way 11.
