Album: Odds And SodsReleased: 1972Charted:
This song was recorded in early summer of 1972 and first appeared on Odds And Sods
in 1974. The band originally planned on releasing the song as a single in 1972, but Pete Townshend wanted to use it for an album about The Who's history, titled "Rock Is Dead - Long Live Rock." In the end he wrote Quadrophenia
instead. This song was finally released as a single on April 1, 1979 with "My Wife" (and "I'm The Face" on some versions too) on the flip side.
This appeared briefly in the 1973 film That'll Be The Day
, where Billy Fury sang it. In the film, Keith Moon played the part of Billy Fury's drummer, J.D.Clover. Moon also appeared as J.D. in the 1974 sequel Stardust
