    Another plus one to the R&R Circus version. Liked this track before, loved it after! I forgive myself.

    Their R&R Circus performance of this song blows me away every time I see it. It's quickly become my favorite Who song.

    I agree, the Rock 'n' Roll Circus version is THE BEST! I missed you and I must admit I've kissed a few and once did sit on Ivor the engine driver's lap and later with him had a nap. John's vocals at the end are awesome.

    the live version from The Rolling Stones Rock n Roll Circus movie is even better. Check it out!
