Direct Hits is the first UK compilation album released by The Who.

compilation album Magic Bus: The Who on Tour, but is otherwise unrelated to that release. Strangely, it does not include the song Magic Bus, which had reached on the . singles chart during the summer of 1968. Until the early 1980s this was the only album to include a few Who rarities such as "In the City", "Dogs", and The Rolling Stones' song "The Last Time. The album is of interest mostly to collectors.

Direct Hits was the first official compilation of the Who's music. And it would be notable on that basis alone, even though it was planned exclusively as a European release. Actually, the album bore an uncanny resemblance in song lineup if not design to the . issued Magic Bus album put out by Decca Records, which was not an officially acknowledged compilation on the group.

Comments:

Yannara
This Japanese version uses true stereo and true mono masters, unlike the UK original issue. Hence, it is not "the same album as the UK release". Details e.g. here: http://forums.stevehoffman.tv/threads/direct-hits-the-most-fun-who-album.315197/

this is the japan reissue of this compilation that originally came out on track records in the uk in 1968, this reissue came out in 1980 and was released by polydor kk japan, this comes with a nice fat thick red obi strip as it came in a series and has a nice one page japan insert..
