    The Who have announced a new super-deluxe edition of The Who Sell Out with 112 tracks, 46 of which have never been heard before.

    The new top-of-the-line set, due on April 23, also includes both the original mono and a stereo mix of the original album, studio outtakes and early takes, 14 of Pete Townshend's original demos, two bonus singles, an 80-page hardback full-color book and nine posters and inserts.

    There will also be a two-LP stereo vinyl package, a two-CD/two-LP mono vinyl version, a two-CD edition and a digital release. The Who are already sharing several preview songs, including early versions of "Pictures of Lily" and "Odorono."

    Check out both demos and a complete list of the super-deluxe edition bonus tracks below.

    The Who Sell Out originally arrived in December 1967 as a loose concept record parodying society's increasingly consumerist attitudes – complete with between-song jingles and commercials. The album, which sounded like a pirate radio station, was rounded out with a pop-art sleeve design created by David King, art director at London's Sunday Times, and Roger Law of the Spitting Image television program.


    Each of the band members is featured in his own made-up print ad. Roger Daltrey was said to have spent so much time in a vat of cold beans that he caught pneumonia.

    "I Can See For Miles" became a Top 10 hit, while elements of Townshend's mini-opera "Rael" would later return for 1969's double-platinum Top 10 follow-up, Tommy.
