A Quick One

'Boris the Spider', written by John Entwistle, recorded in October of 1966 at Pye studios in London and featured on the album titled above.

My brother turned me on to the music of 'The Who'.  He'd put this vinyl recording onto the monaural turntable in our living room for me.  It was an enormous thing.  Four feet tall or so in a beautifully finished maple cabinet.  I was told to sit x number of feet away from it, so as not to damage my hearing.  Left to my own devices, I'd crank the volume up and put my head right up against the speakers to enjoy the full effect of Entwistle's bass.  'Happy Jack' was a favorite tune also.
