I CAN’T EXPLAIN- THE WHO

LAMONT’S MUSIC NOTES-JAN 15, 2020…THE SINGLE ‘I CAN’T EXPLAIN’ WAS RELEASED ON THIS DATE 55 YEARS AGO IN AMERICA. IT WAS THE FIRST SINGLE TO BE RELEASED BY THE GROUP UNDER THE NAME ‘THE WHO’. THEIR PREVIOUS SINGLE WAS ACTUALLY RELEASED UNDER THE NAME ‘THE HIGH NUMBERS’. HERE’S A BIT OF TRIVIA ON ‘I CAN’T EXPLAIN’. JIMMY PAGE OF LED ZEPPELIN CLAIMS TO HAVE PLAYED GUITAR ON THE SINGLE WHEN HE WAS DOING SESSION WORK. THIS WAS CONFIRMED BY PETE TOWNSEND, HOWEVER, PAGE’S CONTRIBUTION IS SAID TO NOT HAVE MADE THE FINAL MIX !!! WTF !! HOW DO YOU CUT OUT JIMMY PAGE’S GUITAR WORK ?!?! HERE’S THE WHO WITH ‘I CAN’T EXPLAIN’ AND A VIDEO FROM 1971 WHEN THE BAND PERFORMED AT THE FILLMORE EAST.
