On April 20, Pete Townshend will release a deluxe remastered edition of his 1972 solo album Who Came First.
CD2 contains a number of previously unreleased tracks and you can hear one of them, “There’s A Fortune In Those Hills”, exclusively below:
“This is a real example of how finely wrought was my pre-multi-track tape recording technique, bouncing from one stereo Revox machine to another, building up a ‘band’ as I went,” writes Townshend in the sleevenotes. “The first few tracks of the commercial Thunderclap Newman album were recorded using this method, in my tiny home studio, and of course required less stages because there were four of us in the studio playing at every stage. Cool song. Another one about finding God I think?”
