Comment:

Considering that the Who possessed an in-house songwriting dynamo, it’s somewhat surprising that they cut so many covers; what’s [i]not[/i] surprising is why they gravitated to the songs they chose to cover. Songs like these. After Mick Jagger and Keith Richards were busted for drug possession in 1967, the Who pledged to record only Stones songs while their pals languished in the pokey; the Who’s double A-side of the Stones’ bluesy kiss-off “The Last Time” and the slinky slab of machismo “Under My Thumb” barely had time to chart before the Stones rolled out of jail. Eddie Cochran’s ultimate can’t-fight-the-Man teen anthem, “Summertime Blues,” serves its rockabilly straight up, Cochran's acoustic guitar snapping, crackling, and popping like a downed power line. Surf was most definitely [i]never[/i] up anywhere near Keith Moon’s London home, but that didn’t keep him from aspiring to Beach Boyhood, and the Southern California band’s doo-wop-on-the-sand frat-house fave, “Barbara Ann,” later showed up in the movie [i]The Kids Are Alright[/i]. From “Fortune Teller” to “I’m a Man,” these are the songs that the Who couldn’t resist making their own, and when you hear the originals, you’ll understand [i]precisely[/i] why.
