- The Who: An Illustrated Discography by Ed Hanel
(ISBN 0.86001.810.5 Omnibus Press)
Though long outdated, I still highly recommend this book. It lists regular WHO and solo
releases from the U.K./ U.S./ Canada, Germany and many other countries, as well as
vinyl and tape bootlegs up to 1981 and provides more detail than most other source,
however, this book does not list CDs.
This book has been reissued and is again available.

releases, book titles as well as what's coming, inclusive reviews.

- The Who Concert File
(1997 Omnibus Press ISBN: 0.7119.6316.9, order No: OP 47879)
Thanks to Joe McMichael and “Irish” Jack Lyons, the authors of this published book, it
is now possible to more accurately identify shows and the origin of several recordings.
This is a great and invaluable resource packed with concert dates and notes about
many shows including studio recording sessions and TV appearances adding yet
another dimension to “THE WORLD’S GREATEST ROCK 'N ROLL BAND” for fans and
collectors alike. and please visit “Irish” Jack's Page at thewho.net!
