Notes

This 1980 reissue nearly identical to The Who - Who Are You except for "Platinum Plus" "37003" gold stamp on front cover indicating a 1980 Platinum Plus series release of MCA-3050.
Goldmine, 8th Edition gives a release date of 1979, and tan labels would also indicate 1979, but the Platinum Plus series did not debut until 1980. This version appears to have been using up old stock labels and cover.

Tracks are numbered 1 through 9 on the back cover of the LP.

Who Are You is the eighth studio album by English rock band the Who, released on 18 August 1978 by Polydor Records in the United Kingdom and MCA Records in the United States. Who Are You was the Who's last album to feature Keith Moon as their drummer; Moon died three weeks after the album's release.

Who, who, who, who?) I really want to know (Who are you? . Who Are You was written about meeting Steve Jones and Paul Cook of the Sex Pistols after an awful 13-hour encounter with Allan Klein who, in my personal opinion, is the awesome rock leech-godfather. In one sense the song is more about the demands of new friendship than blood-letting challenge. Roger’s aggressive reading of my nihilistic lyric redirected its function by the simple act of singing Who the fuck are you. when I had written Who, who, who are you. Steve and Paul became real ‘mates’ of mine in the English sense. We socialized a few times.

The documentary The Kids Are Alright shows The Who in a studio recording this song. John, Keith, and Pete do the clapping part, but John comes in early, which leads the rest of the group to laugh hysterically. John also amuses Keith by twirling his hands between claps Between 1965 and 1984 the English quartet had twenty-seven Top 100 records; their biggest hit was "I Can See For Miles", it peaked at {for 2 weeks} on November 19th, 1967.

The Who have been with several labels over the years. In the United Kingdom and elsewhere outside North America, they were signed originally to Brunswick Records. In 1966, they moved to Polydor Records and took the rights to their Brunswick recordings with them. They created and moved to Track Records the following year with distribution by Polydor. They left Track in 1974 and returned to Polydor directly, remaining with the label ever since.

Who Are You is an LP the Who have been working toward all through the Seventies. The fears of aging, irrelevancy and the dissolution of one’s self, one’s band or one’s audience that peeked out of Who’s Next and The Who by Numbers have finally surfaced whole. Keith Moon, unstable, unreliable, sits in a chair. marked Not to Be Taken Away. It will be a real disappointment if another three years pass before the next Who album: this one seems to have left them ready for the new music they claim they can’t make - a claim that’s obviated by what is new and, more importantly, compelling on Who Are You. I said this was, despite its claims to oblivion, a confident record: what makes it so is the Who’s refusal to settle for mere survival, for automatic applause and meaningless pro forma hits.

On the Who's final album with Keith Moon, their trademark honest power started to get diluted by fatigue and a sense that the group's collective vision was beginning to fade. As instrumentalists, their skills were intact. More problematic was the erratic quality of the material, which seemed torn between blustery attempts at contemporary relevance ("Sister Disco," "New Song," "Music Must Change") and bittersweet insecurity ("Love Is Coming Down").
