Call To Confirm Colored Copies Are Still Available
One of the all-time giants of British music – be that pop, rock, operatic and more – Pete Townshend is a multi-Grammy Award winning national treasure whose name is synonymous with the kind of groundbreaking, integrity packed achievements that have enriched popular culture. Without his songwriting and guitar innovation the entire landscape of the 1960s and beyond would have been immeasurably less interesting.
Townshend's critically acclaimed Scoop series of albums gave fans a privileged peek behind the scenes of one of popular music's greatest songwriters. The albums showcase Townshend's career spanning demos from both The Who and his solo recordings. The first release in the series, Scoop, was issued in 1983 followed by Another Scoop in 1987 and Scoop 3 in 2001.
Another Scoop is an archival return that like its predecessor delivers what you want to hear. Or as Pete put in the liner notes, "This is the second in a series of albums bringing together demo-tapes, home recordings and unreleased oddities produced during my career in and out of The Who." It's essential for the devoted fan since it contains original versions of everything from "Pictures of Lily" and "Substitute" to "You Better You Bet" and "The Kids Are Alright."
