the who who's next 1971

But to Pete Townshend, an album like Who’s Next wasn’t initially perceived as being enough. Townshend was all set to provide us with his second narrative concept album about how white rock and roll music could deliver us from evil, but instead, we ended up with just an exceptional collection of songs, sans narrative and concept—just some rock and rollers blowing off steam.

Who’s Next (Deluxe Edition) is British rock band The Who’s fifth studio album, originally released in 1971. When Pete Townshend tried to explain the various ideas comprising Lifehouse to the rest of the Who, Roger Daltrey famously struggled to understand how such a world was possible, saying, of the premise that all homes and people are connected, “They’ll never get enough wire.”. Though I recognize that Who’s Next is the superior album, part of me still yearns to hear the original concept as Townshend originally intended. . Maybe the idea of authenticity in pop music is absurd. As far as the first part of all that goes, looking at it in 2019, it’s an easy idea to wrap our heads around, sort of Fahrenheit 451 meets The Matrix meets the actual internet. See, Lifehouse does exist as a radio drama, and as a “sessions” box set, and will, in 2020, also exist as a graphic novel.

The bloat and mess of Lifehouse obscures the power of “Baba O’Riley” and “Won’t Get Fooled Again.” Buries the beauty of “Behind Blue Eyes.” Defangs “Bargain.” Maybe, had Lifehouse been released instead of Who’s Next, it would have been just as much or even more of a classic, but I doubt that. At least as an album, anyway. The night that Brian Wilson’s version of Smile was set to be released, my friend Seth and I drove all over Dayton at midnight, looking for a twenty-four hour big box store that had already put its copies out on the shelves. It showed the world that the Who didn’t need to do musical theater to make important music—they could still be just a killer rock band. And, really, that’s the only place an idea as convoluted as Lifehouse could come from. The cover of Who’s Next features the Who standing around a giant pylon in some sort of post-industrial wasteland. Details unknown. There is no heavy handed symbolism holding the songs back, no convoluted narrative. setting aside the time for a 42-minute immersive listening experience. To be fair, this is a fairly common place for lost albums to come from. For these “lost” albums, however, Pollard’s desire to produce a strong follow up was further complicated by his hyper-prolificacy and Matador’s desire that the band release only an album a year—by the time the new album could be released, Pollard’s body of current work had shed and regrown its skin, twice. If the lore is to be believed, though, the image came together organically when the band, driving with photographer Ethan A. Russell, saw the giant concrete block and decided it was a good spot for a photo. Honestly, that’s all Lifehouse should be, because, instead of Lifehouse, we have Who’s Next, born almost entirely from songs that had been recorded for Lifehouse (John Entwistle’s “My Wife” being the only one that never seemed earmarked for the failed album). Released in August 1971, this would be THE WHO ‘s fifth studio LP. Who’s Next may not have been Pete Townshend’s first, authentic vision of the project, but Townshend’s vision for Lifehouse failed, and as should happen with bands, all four members picked up the pieces of one member’s failure and turned that failure into one of the classic rock era’s true masterpieces.

But as a diversion, I'm picking one of them each day and sharing a few thoughts. But I did want to pontificate for a moment about what it means for an album to change your life. Maybe Townshend liked the idea of pissing over his own failed narrative and conceptual ideas for Lifehouse. Ultimately, Lifehouse is an unnecessary footnote in the history of the Who. No, the problem with Lifehouse was part narrative, part conceptual—that is, Townshend’s ideas for the narrative of Lifehouse were so convoluted and intricate that the rest of the band couldn’t keep up. But Who's Next, that one did change my life. All was not lost, though—Lifehouse ultimately became Who’s Next, one of the great albums of the classic rock era. Your friend’s parents might not know that it’s called “Baba O’Riley,” but the minute they hear that song’s opening synths and its iconic “teenage wasteland” refrain, they know exactly what song they’re listening to. But none of these things can ever happen. Across the pond, album sales were steadily increasing with each album, but the band still hadn’t wormed their way into the top forty on the LP charts—until Tommy.

I thought of Brian Wilson and the Beach Boys as a contemporary American take on Pierre Menard, but instead of trying to “arrive at” the text of Don Quixote, word for word, in a contemporary context, Wilson and the Beach Boys were trying to recreate that text out of their own, original context, and in doing so, had somehow breached the authenticity that music fans crave.
