Doodle #19 (Sunday 18th April 2021)
This doodle was drawn on my exercise book on 29 September 1967. I'm not sure where the idea came from - possibly from the giraffe or some pre-historic animal, or perhaps I just began somewhere on the page to see where it went. The slightly yellowing page has been restored to its original black and white in post-processing.

The Who - I Can See For Miles (1967)
There was a fascinating radio interview between Liz Kershaw and Pete Townshend on this day, to promote a new deluxe edition of the album The Who Sell Out, illustrated by several key tracks from the album and other singles. All being well, my copy should be on the doormat on April 23rd, including a number of new tracks I don't currently have.
Pete Townshend wrote I Can See For Miles in 1966 but kept it back as his "ace in the hole", convinced it was a number one hit. The backing track was recorded at CBS Studios in London in May 1967, overdubs and vocals were added at Talent Masters in New York 6-7 August 1967 and the finished mastertape was mixed at the legendary Gold Star Studios in Hollywood on 10 September 1967. The mono single was unleashed to the public before the album release, in October 1967, but to his disappointment only reached the top ten in the UK and US, not to number one. The album followed in December with a new stereo mix and a different mix to the single on the mono album.
The previously unreleased full version here comes from the new album. It was due to be released on the 50th anniversary of the album but has been delayed for all-too-familiar reasons.
