Additional information about this, The Who vinyl art.

The Who – The Artist

The Who are an English rock band formed in London in 1964. Their classic line-up consisted of lead singer Roger Daltrey, guitarist and singer Pete Townshend, bass guitarist John Entwistle and drummer Keith Moon. They are considered one of the most influential rock bands of the 20th century, selling over 100 million records worldwide. The Who developed from an earlier group, the Detours, and established themselves as part of the pop art and mod movements, featuring auto-destructive art by destroying guitars and drums on stage. Their first single as the Who, “I Can’t Explain”, reached the UK top ten, and was followed by a string of singles including “My Generation”, “Substitute” and “Happy Jack”. The group’s fourth album, 1969’s rock opera Tommy, included the single “Pinball Wizard” and was a critical and commercial success.

You Better You Bet – The Song

‘You better You Bet’ is a song by British rock band The Who, appearing as the first track on their 1981 album Face Dances. It is sung by frontman Roger Daltrey with backing vocals from Pete Townshend and bassist John Entwistle. “You Better You Bet” became a hit and one of the Who’s most recognisable songs.  “You Better You Bet” was written by Pete Townshend as a love song for his girlfriend at the time. The song references the group T. Rex, as well as the group’s own album Who’s Next (1971), with the line: “I drunk myself blind to the sound of old T. Rex… and Who’s Next.”

The Casino Roulette Wheel – The Shape

This record has been cut into a casino gambling roulette wheel. Roulette (named after the French word meaning “little wheel”) is a casino game which was likely developed from the Italian game Biribi. In the game, a player may choose to place a bet on a single number, various groupings of numbers, the colour red or black, whether the number is odd or even, or if the number is high or low. To determine the winning number, a croupier spins a wheel in one direction, then spins a ball in the opposite direction around a tilted circular track running around the outer edge of the wheel. The ball eventually loses momentum, passes through an area of deflectors, and falls onto the wheel and into one of the coloured and numbered pockets on the wheel. The winnings are then paid to anyone who has placed a successful bet.
