May 1 – Thursday – The Who – Meaty Beaty Big and Bouncy

Who - MeatyThis compilation is kind of a less gritty version of Live at Leeds, and it’s not live. I found myself in a very good frame of mind while listening to it, singing with the boys and best of all, moving. It’s a good length, and this even surprises me, it is another entry on the Ram list. Please don’t blame me for the title. I didn’t name the darn thing. As a young teen, I’m sure I found it titillating, if you’ll pardon the phrase, but now I just think it’s stupid, though I write this with a grin on my face.

The competition for attention between Pete Townshend, Roger Daltry and Keith Moon is legendary, and they were all masters at it, but when you just listen to the record, that tall quiet guy stage right, John Entwhistle, shines through on bass. This contains some old goodies like “The Kids Are Alright,” “My Generation,” “Pinball Wizard” and “Happy Jack.”
