The Who Announce Five-CD Box Set, ‘Maximum As & Bs’

UMe/Polydor
UMe/Polydor

All of the Who‘s singles and EPs will be collected on a new box set, Maximum As & Bs, which is scheduled for release later this year.

The five-CD set will include 86 tracks from the Brunswick, Reaction, Track and Polydor labels, and collects every single A- and B-side, as well as every EP, the Who released. It’s coming out on Oct. 27.

The box starts with “Zoot Suit” and “I’m the Face,” which were released under the name the High Numbers before the band became the Who for their next single, “I Can’t Explain.” The collection then winds through some of the Who’s most popular songs — including “My Generation,” “Pinball Wizard” and “Won’t Get Fooled Again” — before concluding with “Be Lucky,” from the 2014 compilation Who Hits 50!, and a 2014 stereo remix of “I Can’t Explain.”

You can see the full track listing below.

In other Who-related release news, Pete Townshend‘s trio of Scoop compilations will be reissued on Aug. 18. The remastered double-CD sets — which feature Townshend demos and outtakes — will also be available on pink (Scoop), yellow (Another Scoop) and light blue (Scoop 3) vinyl. Also due on vinyl on Oct. 27: new versions of the Who’s Meaty, Beaty, Big & Bouncy compilation and Live at Leeds.
