First I have heard of it, but it's not surprising that MCA would release a deluxe edition of it. I would be shocked if they didn't release deluxe versions of Tommy and Quadrophenia in the future. If only they could release some early to mid 70's concerts!

this is it so far from

"It seems like a lot of you are interested in The Who reissue, "Who's Next - Deluxe Edition". I can't say that I blame you. The quality of the remaster is extraordinary to say the least. But I also got a few grumbling emails bemoaning the entire re-issue process. You feel as if you're being asked to re-purchase stuff that you already have. In a sense that's true. However, allow me to take the side of the labels. We have this picture of the big bad, cigar chompin' CEO who doesn't understand music. But nothing could be farther from the truth. I agree that there may be those types somewhere but there are true faithfuls in there too.

After having heard the final version of the upcoming March 25 release of "Who's Next - Deluxe Edition", I'm convinced that it is a labour of love. There are people that want to get these pristine remasters into your hands with incredible bonuses. The recording is mind-blowing. If you had purchased the 1995 remaster of "Who's Next", you were treated with the best that technology could create. Now, 6 years later, technology is able to provide you with an even more perfect remastering process than before. And let me tell you, if this 2 CD set was only on 1 disc and provided The Record Plant alternates as bonuses along with the incredible remaster process, it would be glorious. But MCA put another bonus disc in the deal. This isn't a matter of getting maximum dollar from the material but, rather, putting exemplary music into your hands. And that's important."

I may be in the minority here, but so far I have enjoyed the other two Who Deluxe Edition releases. With the release of Dark Side of the Moon SACD and this, 3/25 is shaping up to be a great day for releases!

Well, ****. I just bought this album a few days ago! But such a fantastic record it is that I'm seriously considering getting the deluxe edition. But I'll remain skeptical of the improvement in sound quality until I read some comparison reviews.
