It's Hard

Hooligans is a double compilation album of The Who. Released by MCA Records in 1981, it focuses on Who songs from the 1970s with only the titles "I Can't Explain", "I Can See for Miles" and "Pinball Wizard" from the 1960s. The album reached #52 on the US charts.[1]

This album is most notable as the first US album release to include three hard to find Who singles. The 1971 UK single "Let's See Action" was not released in the US, and for this album the title was changed to "(Nothing Is Everything) Let's See Action". Two other singles "Join Together" and "Relay" were released both in the UK and US in 1972. The US release of "Relay" was re-titled "The Relay". An edited version of the latter (shortened by about 20 seconds) appears on this album.
