Pete Townshend Who Came First

Now Pete Townshend is a legend because of The Who, but he also has some awesome solo albums. In fact, his first proper solo album came out 45 years ago this month in between “Who’s Next” and “Quadrophenia”.

One of my favorite solo tunes from Pete is on that album, which is a far cry from the stuff he was writing and recording with The Who.

I know I’m in the minority there, but I really love Pete’s solo catalog. As for my favorite album, I think “Empty Glass” is his crowning achievement and one of my all time favorite albums.

Other Pete favorites of mine include this tune he released two years later,…

,…and this tune off of “Psychoderelict” over a decade later.

How about you? What are your favorite solo tunes from Pete Townshend?
