Roger Daltrey, John Entwistle, Bob Pridden and Pete Townshend are among the people interviewed about the making of "Who's Next," which is the focus of this episode in the Classic Albums series. If you've already seen the series then you pretty much know what to expect as we basically go through each song on the album and those involved with it explain where it came from, how they got the lyrics and music together and the eventual release. Fans of The Who will probably know the majority of the stories told here but if you're new to the group or album then you should have a good time hearing them. Baba O'Riley,The Teenage Wasteland Going Mobile, Bargain, Getting In Tune and My Wife are just some of the tunes that are discussed with the band members as well as the sound mixer. I'd say most fans will enjoy hearing the album re-mixed so that they can talk in more details about certain sounds and instruments on the album.
