Artist: Pete Townshend
Title: Who Came First

Deluxe two CD edition. Who Came First is the debut solo album by Pete Townshend, released in 1972. It includes demos from the abandoned concept album Lifehouse, part of which became Who's Next. The cover photo of Townshend standing on eggs is a reference to the eternal question: 'Who came first? The chicken or the egg.' It peaked at #30 on the UK album chart and at #69 on the US Billboard 200. We celebrate the 45th Anniversary with an expanded version of the album, housed in 8 panel digi packaging, the original poster from the 1972 release and 24 page booklet which contains rare images of Meher Baba and Pete in his recording studio. Also included are new sleeve notes provided by Pete himself. Remastering has been carried out by long term Pete Townshend and The Who collaborator Jon Astley, using original master tapes. CD1 consists of the original album as it was released, CD2 includes unreleased tracks, alternative versions of songs such as 'Parvardigar', 'Day Of Silence' and live performances.
