Going Mobile

Never played onstage by The Who, this was one of the lighter Lifehouse songs. Recorded at Olympic during May 1971. [There is an unconfirmed report that this was recorded at Stargroves in April. Another song sung by Ray near the beginning of the Lifehouse film as he and his family travel south in their hermetically-sealed van. Pete had bought a large American mobile home at the time of the 1970 Isle Of Wight concert and drove it to U.K. concerts in 1970 and 1971. The synthesizer sound is Pete playing guitar through an envelope follower connected to the synthesizer. Pete’s original demo was released on his 1999 solo album Lifehouse Chronicles.]
