The Who Sell Out - Deluxe Edition (Geffen/UMe), released June 2, 2009, notably marks the first official reissue of the mono mix in either the U.S. or U.K. since 1967.

In addition, The Who Sell Out - Deluxe Edition features a limited edition replica of the Osiris Visions poster packaged only with the original first pressing of the album, a 28-page booklet containing rare photos and 1960s period advertisements, a CD sleeve with outtakes from the original album cover photo session, an introductory essay by noted rock writer Dave Marsh and in-depth liner notes by Who biographer Andy Neill.

The concept of The Who Sell Out is that the album is a broadcast from pirate radio station Radio London, complete with faux jingles, commercials and public service announcements.

The Andy Warhol-like flaunting of commercialization includes the iconic sleeve design of images of each band member hawking a product: Pete Townshend for Odorono deodorant, Roger Daltrey for Heinz baked beans, Keith Moon for Medac spot cream, and John Entwistle for a Charles Atlas exercise program. Just like the third album from the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame band, there are also inklings of the group's next effort, the landmark Tommy, such as with the track "Rael" from an earlier Townshend rock opera.

Added to the original stereo album (Disc One) are previously unreleased recordings of Eddie Cochran's "Summertime Blues," the remake version of "Rael, Part 1 & 2" and the full "Premier Drums" commercial. Other highlights include The Who's take on Edvard Grieg's classical piece "In The Hall Of The Mountain King," an alternate of "Mary Anne With The Shaky Hand" and another "Rael" bonus, "Naive." Added to the original mono album (Disc Two) are the previously unreleased early stereo demo of "Relax" and alternate stereo version of "Glittering Girl," along with early mono mixes of "Rael," "Tattoo," "I Can See For Miles" and more.

In December 2008, The Who became the only rock band to date to receive a Kennedy Center Honor, America's highest cultural award.

Double O

Double O charity was started by The Who in 1976 and has now evolved into a private dispersal charity focused more than ever on 'survival' of drug and alcohol damage, domestic violence, sexual abuse, music education, emergency relief for international disasters, and young people's prison reform. It has dispersed about 4,000,000 pounds Sterling since inception, and been indirectly responsible for the dispersal of another similar amount through Double O Promotions, which channels a lot of Townshend- and Who-related activity. Since 2002, all of the Who tours have been recorded, and live CDs of every show have been sold as part of the Encore series. All the proceeds, after profit, have gone to Double O -- totaling about 1,000.000 pounds so far.

Teenage Cancer Trust

Six teenagers will find out they have cancer today, six tomorrow and six the day after. More often than not, these young people get a raw deal, receiving hospital treatment in inappropriate facilities alongside young children or older people. Teenage Cancer Trust fights for the rights of teenagers and young adults with cancer. The charity helps make life better for these young people by building specialist units which are boosting survival rates.

VH1 Save The Music Foundation

Since 1997, the VH1 Save The Music Foundation has provided more than $40 million worth of new musical instruments to over 1,500 schools in 100 communities, affecting the lives of more than 1 million public school children.
