I agree in part and disagree in part.  Bargain should probably go.  Roger's ability to strike that high note is woefully inconsistent.  The magic seems to be gone from that song.  5.15 can be electric and give Rog lots of chances to swing that mike, but I agree that isn't the same w/o John's solo.  WAY I must say is one they should never get rid of live.  It gets the non-Who crowd into it, as it's one of their most well-known songs, and it is right in Daltrey's wheel-house vocally.  I love the way he sings it these days.  Pete also goes craziest with the windmills at the end of this one.  Relay I also love live for it's unique sound and how it allows Pete to show off his versatility on guitar.
