Released in advance of the Who's half-time appearance at the 2010 Superbowl, the 2009 Greatest Hits reworks the 2004 collection Then and Now: 1964-2000, retaining the basic structure of that compilation including its then-new bonus track "Real Good Looking Boy", trimming its 20 tracks down to 19 -- "I'm a Boy," "See Me, Feel Me," and "5:15" traded for "Pictures of Lily" and "Eminence Front," the new "Old Red Wine" swapped for "It's Not Enough" from their 2006 comeback Endless Wire -- but otherwise not changing much about the basic character of the album.
