Pete Townshends Deep End – Face The Face

This show was filmed for the famous German TV series Rockpalast at MIDEM in Cannes on 29th January 1986. Pete Townshend’s Deep End were touring in support of Townshend’s solo concept album “White City: A Novel”. Several of the musicians that appeared on the album were featured in the line-up of the Deep End including Pink Floyd’s David Gilmour on lead guitar. The set list has tracks from the “White City” album, other Pete Townshend solo tracks, Who classics, David Gilmour’s song “Blue Light” and a couple of surprises. Pete Townshend and the band deliver an outstanding performance that showcases him as a solo artist as distinct from his work with The Who.

The legendary guitarist of The Who, Pete Townshend connects with Zane Lowe to reflect on the band’s third studio album ‘The Who Sell Out’ which propelled their career back in 1967. Celebrating the deluxe version of this standout record, Pete Townshend talks about the storytelling throughout this concept album, influencing how other musicians approached their sound, and moments that shaped The Who’s legacy. Roger Daltrey also reflects on creating the record, his involvement with the Teenage Cancer Trust charity in the UK, and motivation for the band’s future.

Perhaps you were one of the merry few who watched, Pete Townshend and  Rachel Fuller host with Simon Townshend (hermano de Peter) the podcast “the Attic”, available now on Apple Itunes ? The podcast was shot mostly inside a travel trailer, set up as studio.  Pete and Rachel welcomed notable singer songwriters, bands who played one set of songs with or without Peter and Rachel.  I have featured a few of the Attic tracks and others that feature Peter with guitar and solo voice.   The primary songwriter for the Who who sang backup mostly to Roger, turns out to be the better singer over time. Voice survived in the background.

I have included the best duet, imho, with Eddie Vedder, “Heart to hang onto” live on Letterman.

This is one of my favorite tracks on White City -A Novel.   It is worth listening to the entire album from track 1 through 9 for the benefit of flow and Novel integrity.
