Young Man Blues
Hello to all 'Who' fans!
Am curious to know which live version of this song you prefer.
At Woodstock it seemed raw and wild, with Pete really letting loose and playing hard - am not sure how his guitar survived (maybe that's why he threw it to the crowd at the end of the gig!)
The Isle of Wight was technically a much better performance yet still blistering in its approach with Pete, Keith and John combining and playing off against one another in amazing fashion.
The 'Live at Leeds' version seemed as tight as this song would probably be ever played by the band, technically sound, without quite the same ferocity of the other two versions.
If I was forced to choose one, I would run with the Isle of Wight, which I think was a golden moment for The Who, epitomising their brand of music and volatility almost perfectly.
