Please, Please, Please

From the "My Generation" liner notes by Brian Cady.

"This is another one of the old LP, same old crap. We didn’t want all this stuff on it. I’m a bit gone on all these electronic toys, these robots we’ve got. I don’t like all this rhythm and blues. Oh, I don’t play like that anymore."
–Pete Townshend (1965)
