Half-speed remastering by Abbey Road Studios

Universal Music is reissuing remixed and remastered vinyl versions of leader of The Who Pete Townshend's first seven solo albums. The albums encompass numerous solo hits such as his Top 10 U.S. single ''Let My Love Open the Door'' as well as ''Face the Face'' and ''A Little is Enough'' plus future Who songs like ''Pure and Easy.''

The specific album titles are Who Came First, Rough Mix, Empty Glass, All the Best Cowboys Have Chinese Eyes, White City, The Iron Man and 1993's Psychoderelict.

The Iron Man: The Musical by Pete Townshend, originally released in 1989, is an adaptation of Ted Hughes' story The Iron Man, produced and largely composed and performed by Pete Townshend of The Who. It also stars Roger Daltrey, Deborah Conway, John Lee Hooker, and Nina Simone. The three then-surviving members of The Who (Daltrey, John Entwistle, and Townshend) performed as a group in two songs, ''Dig'' and ''Fire'', although the latter was not penned by Townshend. (The Who would later perform ''Dig'' live during their 1989 reunion tour.) ''A Friend is a Friend'' and ''I Won't Run Anymore'' were released as singles; ''Fire'' was also issued as a promo-only in the United States. A stage version was mounted at the Young Vic theatre in London in 1993. On the strength of this, Warners optioned the story for a movie which, with a very different adaptation of the story, became The Iron Giant; Townshend received an Executive Producer credit.

We try to be as accurate as possible, but we use a service to get images for the vinyl records we sell. Sometimes, this leads to the image showing a special colored vinyl edition of a record when we only have the standard black vinyl version.
