THE WHO - ANYWAY ANYHOW ANYWHERE


THE WHO - 'Anyway Anyhow Anywhere'/'Daddy Rolling Stone' (Brunswick 05935) May 1965

The follow up Who single was the aggressive pop art number 'Anyway Anyhow Anywhere' which is full of arrogance and bravado. Check out the song credit (Townsend, Daltry) because this was their first and last collaboration. From what I've read in the past Daltry changed Townsend's verses to toughen the song up to suit his pissed off temperment, hence his co-credit!

The Who started wearing 'pop art' clothes around this time, Townsend in his Union Jack(et), medals and badges, Moon with his target T-Shirts and Daltry created makeshift designs on his sweaters using black tape. They also draped Union Jack flags over their speaker cabinets.

The flip 'Daddy Rolling Stone' probably suited their soul crowd more than the disorder and chaos of  'Anyway'.

  1. Thanks for this one, too! I went to see the Who when they were the opening act for . . . Herman's Hermits! Marie

  2. This must have been the same tour that The Blues Magoos were on.
