Bell Boy

Recorded June 1, 1973.

Pete Townshend: "He meets an old Ace Face who’s now a bellhop at the very hotel the Mods tore up. And he looks on Jimmy with a mixture of pity and contempt, really, and tells him, in effect, ‘Look, my job is shit and my life is a tragedy. But you – look at you, you’re dead!’" 

A live version with Keith can be found on the 30 Years Of Maximum R&B video (1974).
