La La La Lies

From the “My Generation” liner notes by Brian Cady.

 

Recorded November 10, 1965 at IBC Studio A, London.

“It wasn’t as good as this before I did it with Keith. It’s not my favourite one on the LP. It reminds me a bit of Sandie Shaw.” –Pete Townshend (1965)

This song was released as a single in Europe without the Who’s consent on November 11, 1966. It didn’t chart in the U.K. but reached #17 in Sweden.

The My Generation: Deluxe Edition stereo remix lacks the original’s double-tracked vocals, which may be why it has an abrupt cut-off on the vocals right before the bridge.
