On Saturday (June 12th), the Who will release an expanded 40th anniversary edition of their 1981 Face Dances collection for Record Store Day. “LP 1” is the original album with its nine tracks. “LP 2,” entitled “Face Dances Part 3” — with a nod to the 1982 Pete Townshend solo hit “Face Dances, Part 2” — has another nine tracks. The album was remastered and cut at half speed by Miles Showell at Abbey Road.
The second disc features alternate versions of Face Dances tracks and outtakes, along with four of the album's songs performed on March 28th, 1981 live in Essen, Germany.
According to TheWho.com: “The album cover features the original Peter Blake design front and back. LP 1 is on blue heavyweight vinyl with colored labels and LP 2 is on yellow heavyweight vinyl with colored labels. In addition, there are four 12-by-12 fine art prints included in the package with four portraits on each print.”
