Speaks his mind on music & movies!
One of Babyhead’s all time favorite albums. Entwistle’s bass and Moon’s drums kick off the whole thing with ‘The Real Me’. The record revolves around the life of Jimmy. A kid who is going through the pains of growing up. His life, environment, girls, drugs, booze, parents, friends. Basically the guy is fucked up. Pete Townshend’s idea brought to life by the rest of the Who. Babyhead could relate to a lot of it.
There’s not a bad song on the album. ‘5:15’, ‘The Real Me’, ‘Bell Boy’, ‘Doctor Jimmy’, ‘Love Reign O’er Me’ and all the rest. The album cover, notes, all help set the feel of the record. Ramblings by the Jimmy guy on the inside jacket gives you an idea where his head is at. All the mods and rocker shit etc. Eating eels and getting pissed. There’s a booklet that came with the record. It has some photos and images that add to the feel.
But like i said, all this is great but it’s still the music that did it for Babyhead. He heard it for the first time driving around with a buddy in his 57 Chevy, listening to it on his quadraphonic sound system. Man did it sound good. Crank that shit up!!
CB was a Who fan already but this LP solidified that. Some of his favorite music. These tunes still run through his head. A regular flyer on the listening machine. Every time CB is at the beach the first couple lines of ‘Sea and Sand’ and ‘Bell Boy’ pop into his head. The whole album stirs up a bunch of feelings and takes him to that time and place. Plus it rocks.
Pete Townshend, Roger Daltrey, John Entwistle and Keith Moon make some good music together. Did I say how much I like this record. I like this record. A lot.
