Cousin Kevin Model Child

From the "Odds & Sods" liner notes by Brian Cady.

Produced by Kit Lambert in late 1968

A song written to bridge "Fiddle About" and "Cousin Kevin" when they were next to each other in early Tommy songlists. The song was dropped when a change in the song order separated them. John and Pete sing Uncle Ernie’s part and Keith sings Cousin Kevin’s.

This track was listed erroneously as being composed by John Entwistle. Matt Kent and Andy Neill uncovered in 2002 that Pete was actually the author.

Also available, in a different mix, on the 2003 Tommy Deluxe Edition. Track 12 on the 1998 Odds & Sods
