Pete Townshend Scoop

I'll put Pete Townshend's Scoop album up against anything I've ever listened to and incredibly these are a collection of Townshend's demos. The album is sheer brilliance and gives a different take on some of Pete's solos and songs by The Who. The above song is a favorite of mine, "Mary." I remember when I picked up this CD and just not really grasping the concept that these great songs were only demos. Hey what I can tell you, they didn't have Wikipedia back then. Scoop was released on vinyl in 1983 and later on CD in 1989.
