The Who need no excuse to release a new compilation - since 1994, a new collection has appeared roughly at the rate of one every three years - but the band's 50th anniversary does provide the opportunity for a splashy new compilation, the first since 2009's Greatest Hits

The Who Hits 50! is a compilation of singles by the English rock band The Who, released in 2014 by Polydor Records. The album is notable for containing singles generally not included on other compilation albums, such as the band's Rolling Stones cover "The Last Time" done as an act of solidarity while Mick and Keith were facing jail time, along with other lesser-known singles "Dogs" and "Call Me Lightning".

this is the brand new 2 cd compilation set by the who titles THE WHO HITS 50, the track listing on both discs here are very good considering most cd who compilations released over the past 30 years have been very run of the mill tracks, here we do get some obscurities and mono mixes and a few different stereo mixes of ceratin tracks that make this collection very worth while, also the new track BE LUCKY on here is actually very good, it is better then anything on that endless wire peice of crap that they put out back in 2006 and also better then the 2 tracks released back in 2004 real good looking boy and old red wine, both those tracks did nothing either, this track be lucky is actually probably the best song the who has done since the its hard record way back in 1982, anyway this is a well worth it compilation cd set to grab in time for the 5oth ann tour, i was hoping for a 50th ann box set but as of now that has not happened yet, there is still so much unreleased stuff that could go on a 5 disc box set its unreal, hopefully townshend reads this review and it gives him the idea, in the meantime ENJOY THIS COLLECTION..... also there will be a 2 lp version of this but that wont come until february 2015.
