There is a Who version of that song - but it is nowhere near as powerful as the demo. The sound on that recording is simply amazing.


The liner notes from Scoop:

Recorded at my Ebury  Street studio this is a pre TOMMY demo written around the time the band were facing a void in their career. It's a tremendously haunting song, but was obviously totally wrong for the band at a time we had just failed to get a hit with the glorious I CAN SEE FOR MILES. I suppose I was really melancholic when I wrote it.


My first attempt at tape phasing or 'flanging' can be heard on some elements of the track. I'm pretty sure The Who didn't even hear this song.

Typical Townshend memory lapse.
