Overview

A rip-off of sorts even upon its original release, with a few senseless repeats of tracks from Quick One and Who Sell Out, as well as a sleeve that erroneously implied a live recording. This mishmash of singles, B-sides, and stray tracks from past British releases did have some fine moments, particularly the singles "Call Me Lightning" and the Bo Diddley-influenced "Magic Bus," which became one of their most popular concert numbers. Other highlights are the fine 1966 pop-art tune "Disguises" and John Entwistle's hysterical "Doctor, Doctor," but these (and a few of the other cuts) are now available as bonus tracks on the Quick One and Who Sell Out reissues. Completists should know that one song, Entwistle's typically black-humored "Dr. Jekyll & Mr. Hyde," is unavailable on any other U.S. release, so it's not time to throw away your copy of Magic Bus just yet.
