Re: Townshend/SYNTH intros

Hah, when I wrote that at 5:30 this morning, even
though you had typed 'Going Mobile' very clearly and
in a language I done gone to collidge to lern gooder,
I was actually thinking of an entirely different song
from the same album ('Bargain'), thinking that you
meant the synth portamento swoops in the middle were
guitar-triggered. (Hmmm, maybe they were...)

At work the only radio we can get through the RF
interference fields is a "classic rock" station; they
play 'Baba' and 'Fooled' extremely often, but never
anything else from the album. Every time 'Baba' ends,
I  really would rather hear it go into 'Bargain'...
