R oger Daltrey’s matter-of-fact delivery on “Don’t Let Go The Coat” exposes this for the Pete Townshend track that it is. Of course, most of Townshend’s songs for The Who were written from a personal perspective, but Daltrey had a way of appropriating Pete’s anger and angst for himself. Better by far in this regard is “You,” one of two John Entwistle tracks from Face Dances that boasts sharp teeth. Neither varies from its elpee counterpart as far as I can tell, though the UK version I own (printed in Ireland, btw) doesn’t list track times.
