Who’s Next started life as a Pete Townshend concept entitled Lifehouse, which contained enough songs for a double album, but the project was eventually reduced to a single LP. Recordings for the album began in New York with Kit Lambert as producer, but the band weren’t satisfied with the results and returned to London to re-record them at Olympic Studios in Barnes with Glyn Johns. Most of the songs recorded with Johns appeared on Who’s Next while the leftovers appeared on singles and later, Odds & Sods (see album). Who’s Next became the only Who album to make in the UK charts.

are the words Who's Next sang in any of the songs on Who's Next. No. They’re sung on the song You Better You Bet, which came later, in reference to the album. what does who's next mean? what is it trying to connote? One possible explanation is that this is the next record by The Who, so it is Who’s Next. However, as the cover shows a monolith that the band members have clearly relieved themselves on, the title may also be a question: who is going next? There were several other covers proposed, all punning on the idea of the title being a question.

Love Ain't for Keeping" is a song written by Pete Townshend and originally released by the Who on their 1971 album Who's Next. Its themes include the joy of physical love, the power of nature and the need to live for the moment. At two minutes and ten seconds, "Love Ain't for Keeping" is the shortest song on Who's Next.

Much of Who's Next derives from Lifehouse, an ambitious sci-fi rock opera Pete Townshend abandoned after suffering a nervous breakdown, caused in part from working on the sequel to Tommy.

Listen free to The Who – Who's Next (Baba O'Riley, Bargain and more). Who's Next is the fifth studio album by English rock band The Who, released in August 1971. The album has origins in a rock opera conceived by Pete Townshend called Lifehouse. The ambitious, complex project did not come to fruition at the time and instead, many of the songs written for the project were compiled onto Who's Next as a collection of unrelated songs. Who's Next was a critical and commercial success when it was released, and has been certified 3 platinum by the RIAA

An album that nailed the bleeding heart of protest-pop. The Who’s fifth album is one of those carved-in-stone landmarks that the rock canon doesn’t allow you to bad-mouth. It was pretty rad for its day. Here’s the twist: it still sounds ablaze.
