Album · 1971 · 14 Songs. This greatest-hits collection brilliantly sums up The Who's first phase. Released before Who's Next and its substantial shift in the band's sound, Meaty, Beaty, Big and Bouncy tells the tale of The Who as a singles band.

On listening to this album, it’s very easy to imagine that the whole Who world has been made up of singles. Where Tommy and his lengthy and finally expatriated self come in, it’s hard to say. Probably nearer the time of the second album, A Quick One, or Happy Jack, as it was called in the States. Before we even approached the idea of making an album that was an expression of our own feelings, or in the case of the Happy Jack, an album expression of our own insanity, we believed only in singles. In the top ten records and pirate radio. We, I repeat, believed only in singles. It’s the Who at their early best. Merely nippers with big noses and small genitals trying to make the front page of the Daily News. Now Peter Max – there’s a guy who knows how to use a bus! They pay him to ride on them.
The Who’s most famous compilation covers their 1960s output, collecting their most popular singles at the time, along with album tracks Boris the Spider and I’m a Boy. This was also the first time that Substitute, The Seeker, and Anyway, Anyhow, Anywhere had appeared on any album, while it was the first UK LP release for Magic Bus and Pictures of Lily. The record has been immensely and enduringly popular with fans and critics, and is certified Platinum by the RIAA. Meaty Beaty Big and Bouncy Q&A.
