The solo only, not the intro, right? The intro sounds
like regular guitar volume swells.


Indeed..the SOLO only. That great, bubbly, weirdness while Daltrey ‘scats’ on the vocal line.

But hmm... Ya got me thinkin’ now...could it be  “THE FIRST VOLUME SWELLS IN AN INTRO”...??? I mean – this may be pre-Steve Hackett volume swells!!
