I, too, always thought the Live At Leeds album was great. The fact that the Who did an old Guess Who number seemed tongue in cheek to me. I must
have had the American version of the album all these years, because nothing from Tommy is on it. It did seem kind of short to me, for an album.
Maybe that's why.
I was in the bad kids class in high school in the early '80s. We had a great teacher who, in an attempt to get the kids involved, played sections of
Tommy then we would discuss it. This went on for two weeks then we did The Wall.
Pretty heavy topics for 16 year olds. I still have friends from school and we all agree that it was a life altering experience.
Uncle Ernie, Gypsy Queen pure awesome.
