The Who Collection is a compilation album by The Who, released in 1985.[1] It is notable for containing a unique remix of "Won't Get Fooled Again" and for being one of the few compact disc appearances of the extended version of "Magic Bus".

The original vinyl release was a double LP package. On compact disc it first appeared as a double-CD set, then later as two single individually numbered volumes.
