Another Scoop is a compilation album by Pete Townshend, and essentially a sequel to Scoop.


Like Scoop released in 1983, Another Scoop features a multitude of demos, outtakes and unreleased material, many of which are songs by The Who. It was followed by Scoop 3 in 1994, the third and last Scoop collection. All three albums were 2-disc sets, and in 1995 a pared-down compilation of them all was released as Scooped. Remastered versions of the original albums were released in 2006.

Pete added liner notes to the release - "This is the second in a series of albums bringing together demo-tapes, home recordings and unreleased oddities produced during my career in and out of The Who.

I want to thank my friend Spike for her tireless energy raking through hundreds of hours of music to put together another interesting selection (she isn't even a Who fan!), and all the Who fans who've waited patiently while I garnered the courage to put it out. I also want to thank my friends at Atlantic records for making the space for me to release this record for collectors while I spend my time writing song for my next "serious" solo album."


July, 1986

The album is dedicated to the memory of Cliff Townshend.
