Keeping with the Pete Towshend theme – I am listening to a lot of this right now – Pete Townshends’ first solo album Who Came First is my recommended starting point for complete solo works by Pete Townshend. The album has a a soulful funky vibe with some tracks sounding almost Shuggie Otis-like, plus you also get some beautiful acoustic work and you get early versions of Who classics such as Lets See Action and Pure and Easy – I actually thinks Pete’s solo versions of Who songs across his vast body of work are generally more interesting and melodic and complex than the Who versions themselves and make for great comparisons against the Who versiosn which do have incredible elements via Mssrs  Daltrey, Moon and Entwhistle.

Listen below to his first single Forever’s No Time At All of the Who Came First LP in 1971 and sung by Billy Nicholls and go here for neat stuff
