Coming soon: The Who – The Brunswick Singles 1965 – 1966 7-inch vinyl box set

We are a bit heavy on The Who stories today (yes, there are more coming), but that’s because there are a lot of good things around. like The Brunswick Singles 7-inch vinyl box set.

It’s part of a big The Who vinyl campaign, with this set kicking off a series of four 45 box sets. We suspect this is the one to have though.

Each is a limited edition, with this containing 7x 7-inch singles from the start of the band’s career, each pressed on heavyweight vinyl with paper sleeves reproducing ‘the period graphics’ front and back with die-cut centre hole.

All of that is in a rigid other box with a 7-inch sized colour booklet featuring liner notes for each release.

The set includes ‘I Can’t Explain’, ‘Anyway, Anyhow, Anywhere’, ‘My Generation’ as well as unreleased single – ‘Circles’ backed with ‘Instant Party Mixture’. There is also a bonus 45 featuring the band’s first single, as the High Numbers – ‘Zoot Suit’ b/w ‘I’m The Face’.

It is available on 6th April 2015, officially priced at £39.99. There is a page on Amazon for it, but as yet it doesn’t have an order button. Expect that to change in the coming days.
