LISTEN: The Who's unreleased track 'The Girls I Could Have Had'
The Who have shared a previously unreleased song.
The band release a remastered super deluxe edition of 1965 debut album 'My Generation' on November 18.
Naturally, as these things do, it comes in multiple formats: five CDs or three LPs, a double LP version following in February, with the usual baubles and bangles in the form of books and insert.
It includes three unreleased tracks, including this newly unveiled cut 'The Girls I Could Have Had'. The song was recorded as a demo by Pete Townshend in his Chesham Place flat, the same place he wrote 'My Generation'.
Townshend says of the song: "... It’s about my lack of success with girls when I lived at Chesham Place, partly because I spent all my time in my studio. Roger did very well with girls; it would never have worked for him to sing this lyric. The lyric is also fantastical. I make it sound as though I was turning down girls every day. In real life I was probably piqued that rarely happened. My tape machine was my mistress".
