The Tommy Demos is a good boot. It's mostly Townshend's demos. But the
orginal Tommy album versions of the non-Townshend songs are also included on
the CD. This means that the album flows properly, but it's a bit odd to see
proper released songs on a bootleg.
Amazing Journey is generally regarded as being the most interesting song of
all the demos - it gets very, very strange.
I'm uploading the Tommy Demos boot now to:
I rarely listen to John's solo stuff. (Although it's better, and more
Who-like than Roger's or Keith's efforts.)
But here's two of his CDs worth having:
- Left for Live Deluxe - his last live release has plenty of Who songs
you'll know already, and most of his best solo songs.
- So Who's the Bass Player: the Ox Anthology - is a very comprehensive
