The Who / Vol 2: The Reaction Singles 1966 seven-inch box


April’s Brunswick Singles box was always volume one of four planned seven-inch Who box sets (Brunswick, Reaction, Track and Polydor) and August brings the next: The Reaction Singles 1966.

This set contains five heavyweight seven-inch vinyl with sleeves reproducing the period graphics with die-cut centre holes. Like the previous set more remastered classics abound including Substitute, Happy Jack, I’m a Boy, the Ready Steady Who E.P.

This will be packaged in the same rigid outer box and comes with a booklet featuring liner notes by Who biographer Mark Blake

Volume 2: The Reaction Singles 1966 is out on 13 August 2015.

Price Watch: Not available from Amazon UK at time of writing, but Germany price is decent (equates to £44) although Spain, curiously enough, is the best deal at less than €55 which is just under £40 in sterling or $60 (may be even cheaper for US with tax deductions). The packaging will all be in English, in case you’re wondering…
