The Who didn't record many covers (they didn't need to), but I really love this one:

The Who - Heat Wave 1967

The clue's in the web-site title - 'Ultimate Classic Rock'.
Anything calling itself that has to be c***!
I doubt anyone conducting this list has heard a Who record before 'Tommy'.

Just found this online—the Top 10 Underrated Pete Townshend Songs—and thought I'd share it here. I definitely agree with Numbers 1 and 2, but "Stardom in Acton" at No. 4? I must be missing something.

I've never enjoyed 'Electric Ladyland' as much as I have in the last couple of days.

I got an old 'nude cover' version of the CD (now 'collectable' but at £15 probably about the same price that it was 25 years ago, I paid £8 for a new 'Axis' in 1990) which, to my ears, sounds much better than the one that is currently on the CD racks.
 
I've read people on the internet swear by the 1988 (?) West German Polydor editions and I have to say that, having had no problems with my West German 'Axis', I'm going to track down those versions.

That said, I do plan to get the 'new' release of 'Rainbow Bridge' tomorrow.

If haven't thought about this album for years but if I'm not mistaken wasn't this part of a settlement for plagiarizing some lyrics from Chuck Berry? Or some body. If so I can see why the album is lackluster. I remember liking it when I did listen many years ago but nothing special. I think he did need a break!

Rock and Roll itself is all about energy and immediacy, the very antithesis of the sour, acrimonious, drawn out circumstances surrounding this record's release.

My recollection is that in the mid 70s music executive Morris Levy tried to sue John for supposedly pinching a bit of the Chuck Berry song "You Can't Catch Me" and using it in the lyrics of "Come Together". They reached a settlement whereby John agreed to record a few songs from Levy's publishing catalogue (presumably expected to generate substantial royalties for Levy via sales of the Lennon disc) as part of his "Rock 'N' Roll" sessions.... which infamously then ran aground at least partly due to Phil Spector absconding with the mastertapes (I think).

Frustrated at the record release grinding to a halt, Levy sued John then lifted a few demo/outtakes anyway and went ahead to  release an (unofficial) mail order LP "by John Lennon" entitled "Roots" - the release of which prompted a counter claim from Capitol/Apple/John going through the courts....

The whole saga became embroiled in lawsuits/procrastination/argument and delay...in short, everything that carefree/instantaneous/joyful rock and roll music was NOT about.

No wonder John had a bellyful and threw in the towel.

you won't be disappointed, always a fun show.

I had with me a friend that had never seen Paul before and himself in two bands in NYC.  He has great respect for Paul and the Beatles but was the type of younger fan (31) that didn't realize some of the songs he was hearing was from Paul/former Beatle.  I had fun seeing his reactions and how impressed he was with the 3+ hour show in general.

Also had behind us, a couple that had driven down from Tennessee and obviously had never seen Paul live before.  While I agree with many here about the sameness of Paul's shows and by now (7th time seeing him) I could recite the story about Blackbird, the lead in to the George tribute, and the Jimi Hendrix learning Pepper over a weekend comments, I was fascinated and enjoyed listening to their reactions on everything.  The wife was almost in tears a few times while the husband was beside himself in joy at the moment of each song when he recognized what song it was.  The price of the seats, them sounding like they were from rural Tennessee (no offense intended), I got the impression they had saved and saved for this EVENT and from their reactions throughout the night I kept envisioning this being some kind of once in a lifetime event for them.

Had a great time-  enjoy the show Saturday Fab4Fan and share your thoughts afterwards.
