Call To Confirm Colored Copies Are Still Available
One of the all-time giants of British music – be that pop, rock, operatic and more – Pete Townshend is a multi-Grammy Award winning national treasure whose name is synonymous with the kind of groundbreaking, integrity packed achievements that have enriched popular culture. Without his songwriting and guitar innovation the entire landscape of the 1960s and beyond would have been immeasurably less interesting.
Townshend's critically acclaimed Scoop series of albums gave fans a privileged peek behind the scenes of one of popular music's greatest songwriters. The albums showcase Townshend's career spanning demos from both The Who and his solo recordings. The first release in the series, Scoop, was issued in 1983 followed by Another Scoop in 1987 and Scoop 3 in 2001.
Scoop features 25 demos of songs released or put on hold by The Who. This beauty contains the early "So Sad About Us," "Squeeze Box," "Bargain" and "Behind Blue Eyes" (from Who's Next/the Lifehouse project), "Magic Bus" and "Love Reign o'er Me." There is also the guitar tribute "To Barney Kessell," excerpted piano from Quadrophenia and the very down home "Cookin'" and "Goin' Fishin'" – a superior form of nostalgia.
