Description
All of our records are play graded and come in a protective outer-sleeve. If you have any questions, please ask.

Catalog Number: 90063-1-F

CONDITION DETAILS
DOUBLE LP. Vinyl plays nicely (play-tested). Gate-fold cover looks great; light-scuffing (front/back/inner-gate). Inner sleeves are original (photos and notes by Townshend for each song). Spine is unbroken and easy-to-read. Very-little shelf-wear along top/bottom-edge; minor wear to corners. Openings are crisp with signs of light use. (Notch on top-left.)

ABOUT THE RECORD
Scoop, by Pete Townshend, contains 25 demos of various released and unreleased songs by The Who, as well as demos of entirely new material. A reviewer on allmusic.com says, "Pete Townshend's demos had grown legendary among Who collectors well before the official release of the double-album Scoop in 1983. On each demo, Townshend worked out full arrangements, which the Who would often follow exactly. He also recorded a wealth of songs and instrumental pieces that never made it to record. Over the course of two albums, Scoop features 25 of these demos, including both classic Who songs (So Sad About Us, Bargain, Behind Blue Eyes, Magic Bus, Love Reign O'er Me) and unreleased gems (Politician, Melancholia, To Barney Kessell, Mary). Occasionally, the songs sound better in their demo versions, particularly on latter-day Who songs, which were overwrought in their official incarnations. But what makes Scoop so fascinating is its revelation of the depth and detail of Townshend's imagination, and how he refined his ideas. But even casual fans will find the sheer musicality of the record worthwhile -- it's one of the most focused and impressive albums he has ever released."
