“The Kids Are Alright” is a soundtrack album by British rock band The Who and accompanied the documentary film of the same name. The album, released in June 1979, features live recordings and alternative takes of the band’s biggest hits. The cover photograph, taken by Art Kane, shows the band draped in two sewn-together Union Jacks, seemingly asleep at the Carl Schurz Monument in Manhattan. The album went platinum in the U.S. where it reached the top ten on the Billboard album chart. The album artwork is now available as a 500 piece jigsaw puzzle printed on high quality board.
Legendary companion album to the band’s classic documentary film of the same name from 1979, featuring the extraordinary 1967 Smothers Brothers TV show version of My Generation – including exploding drum-kit finale! Features one of the most iconic rock images on the front cover – photographer Art Kane’s shot of the band draped in the Union Jack flag at the Carl Shurz Monument in Morningside Heights in New York City on the morning of Friday 5 April 1968, the day of the first of the two concerts at Fillmore East, for a feature on new rock groups for Life Magazine. Includes three performances from Woodstock – Sparks, Pinball Wizard & See Me, Feel Me, classic 1960s TV performances of Magic Bus and Anyway, Anyhow, Anywhere, and the definitive performance of A Quick One, While He’s Away, the version they played at the Rolling Stones’ Rock & Roll Circus — a performance so good that, according to legend, it’s the reason why the Stones shelved the show for 20 years! Features stunning live and rare versions of My Generation, I Can’t Explain, I Can See for Miles, Baba O’Riley & many others. Now available again on black heavyweight vinyl.
