Song Of The Day – “5:15” by The Who

Since it recently received the deluxe reissue treatment, I revisited the Who’s “Quadrophenia” album on Spotify for the first time in years. I’ve got to admit that the album holds up better than most of the other Who albums and this clip from Top Of The Pops just before its 1973 release shows the band when they were indeed a powerhouse. The two discs of demos that augment the reissue not only show how Townshend had the whole thing worked out before he ever delivered it to The Who, but that there are several songs that didn’t make the cut that would’ve pushed the story along in different directions.
