The song Mary was recorded by The Who for Lifehouse but as far as I know The 
Who's version was lost or destroyed, so all we have is a Pete Townshend demo. 
I assume the demo was made sometime in late 1970/early '71. It's by far the 
best Who song that I've never actually heard The Who play. The character Mary 
was one of the main characters in the Lifehouse plot.
