Re: misc. stupid questions...
} 1) The big one....for years I have been too embarrassed to ask anyone who
} would know: what are the lines in Magic Bus, roughly in the mid-section
} on most versions, which goes something like "....(something) and six pence
} every day (too much the magic bus), just to get to my baby.." and so on.
} My ears won't work for that one.
"Thruppence and sixpence every day, just to ride to my bay-bay."
Thruppence = three pence. Tuppence's big sister.
So, [assuming I'm right,] 3d (pre-decimalization :-) one way, 6d return.
} 2) What exactly was Pete's connection with Bette Midler? Was it more
} significant than just a friendly, professional relationship?
} 3) Although I have listened to it more and think I understand the story,
} what are your thoughts on the song(s) Rael? Is there more to it
} (uncompleted additions) than what you hear on the lp/cd?
I've read [a | some] Townshend [interview[s] | liner notes] about Rael,
so there is published text to be read. (I just can't remember where!)
What I remember was mostly about the transition (i.e. reuse) of the
musical themes from Rael to Tommy. Correct me if I'm wrong, Brian, but
Rael on Sell Out was a cut down version of the originally intended story/
song suite. Sort of like Lifehouse -> Who's Next, couldn't finish it off
properly, so use what's usable... Can't remember the full story line.
