A real treasure. I don't know why but I especially love Roger's voice in that album. It sounds a bit different to me, it drives me crazy on Pictures Of Lily and on Shakin' All Over, esp. the Spoonful bit. I love it when Pete sings the wrong words on Long Live Rock.
And when Keith hits the drums after Disguises, that's when I jump out of the window!
There is a picture in the liner notes booklet that when I first saw it made me jump! (not out of the window...)
The four Who members (or as I like to call them "my boys", hehe) stand in front of a No Entry sign (with the word WHO written on it) at Lyall street in Belgravia.
The reason I jumped is because I pass from that street every single day, on the way to Victoria station, to catch my train.
When I first passed it made an impression to me because it's such a beautiful street, and also because sometimes I call my mother Lyalo (inside joke...)
So, the sign was stuck in my mind.
And then I saw the picture of my boys at that same street.
You can imagine my surprise!
Now, like, when in Greece some people do the crucifix every time they pass in front of a church, I send a kiss whenever I pass by Lyall street.
And I think I can still see them there...
Here are the pictures:
LISTEN TO IT: I would recommend that you listen to it after you had listened to a few Who albums.
