As The Who navigated their incendiary path through the sixties, John Entwistle (nick-named The Ox) showed that he was a talented songwriter as well as being a formidable musician. Whilst no doubt thrilled to be the bass guitarist of such a successful band, Entwistle had voiced his discontent to others within the greater Who family about the lack of outlets for his songs, and this perhaps informed the decision for their label, Track Records, to sanction a recording budget for a solo album. Entwistle had been writing songs and making demos of them at home, and by the end of 1970, he had enough material for an album, the first CD in this 6CD box set... This clamshell box set includes Entwistle's six solo albums: Smash Your Head Against The Wall, Whistle Rymes, Rigor Mortis Sets In, Mad Dog, Too Late The Hero and The Rock, plus 29 bonus tracks! The albums feature guest appearances from Joe Walsh, Peter Frampton, Jimmy McCulloch, Howie Casey, Eddie Jobson, Dick Parry and Zak Starkey. The albums are presented in CD facsimiles of the original gatefold and individual sleeves, and the 28 page booklet contains all the credits and full annotation by Alan Robinson.
