The Who go into De Lane Lea Studios, London to record for BBC Radio One's show Top Gear. It is the first time the BBC allow any musical act to record for them outside the BBC's own studios. Alternate versions of “Pictures Of Lily” (Pete on organ), “I Can See For Miles,” (with heavy bass part), “Relax,” “Our Love Was,” (with Hawaiian guitar), “Can't Reach You,” “A Quick One While He's Away,” and “Someone's Coming” are recorded along with new tracks “Summertime Blues” and “My Way.” Also recorded are five jingles, two for Top Gear and three for Radio One using altered lyrics to “Happy Jack,” “Boris The Spider” and “My Generation.”
