Vinyl Records and Rare LPs:

Townshend, Peter - Who Came First Who Came First
Pop Used - LP TEJI 34007 Imperial
Numbered, Limited Edition 180gm Japanese Gatefold Import. Includes Custom Inner Sleeve. Record Appears New, Unplayed. This Is Low Number 0050. “Pete Townshend's First Solo Album Was A Homespun, Charming Forum For Low-Key, Personal Songs That Weren't Deemed Suitable For The Who, As Well As Spiritual Paeans (Direct And Indirect) To His Spiritual Guru Meher Baba. Who Fans Will Be Immediately Attracted By The Presence Of A Couple Of Songs From The Aborted Who Concept Album Lifehouse (Much Of Which Ended Up On Who's Next), "Pure & Easy" And "Let's See Action." The Who Did Eventually Release Their Own Versions Of Both Those Songs. But Townshend's Own Versions Aren't The Highlights Of This Record, Which Shows A Folkier And Gentler Side To The Who's Chief Muse Than His Albums With The Group. "Sheraton Gibson" Is A Neat Tune About Rock & Roll Road Life, And "Time Is Passing" Takes Very Subtle Inspiration From Baba. Most Of The Rest Of The Album Contains Some Of The Most Unusual Pieces Townshend Has Released: His Acoustic Cover Of Jim Reeves' "There's A Heartache Following Me" (Recorded Because It Was One Of Baba's Favorite Tunes), "Evolution" (Which Is Actually Pretty Much A Solo Track By His Buddy Ronnie Lane Of The Faces), "Parvardigar" (Adapted From Baba's Universal Prayer), And "Content" (A Philosophical Poem By Maud Kennedy That Townshend Put To Music).” Richie Unterberger, All Music Guide.... more details
