Note that the release sheet says that this disc now replaces the previous MCA Greatest Hits Collection - My Generation
Roger told Virgin Radio on March 1, that they may use John Entwistle's bass parts from rehearsal tapes on the new release. (When Eonline and other outlets carried the report, they listed the release date of Then and Now as April 27th)

Eddie Vedder is quoted in (Feb 26 2004) as saying the new material is "one of the best things I've ever heard."

According to Pete's Feb 27 Diary entry, the two tracks not only feature Simon Townshend on additional guitar and vocals, but Simon PRODUCED the two new tracks "taking over from me and Bob Pridden when I realized I myself needed to be produced when in the studio. It's worked out very well." It's a great entry as he also gives details about each song's story and genesis.

Both new tracks as well as the entire Then and Now album are available NOW (12 Mar 2004) at iTunes, and only $.99 each, $9.99 for the entire album.
You will need to download and sign up !! (Mac OS X, Windows 2000 or XP)
