— Days Without Shea —

News from the music business world today, independent music publisher Spirit Music Group is acquiring the music catalog of Peter Townshend for an undisclosed amount.

As part of the deal, Mr. T. is selling his interest in the copyright to approximately 350 tunes, including "Baba O'Riley," "Pinball Wizard" and "Won't Get Fooled Again."

Why am I telling you this? So I have an excuse to post this vintage clip from The Who's appearance at Shea Stadium. Hard to believe this gig was 30 years ago. I can remember hearing this show from my childhood bedroom in Jamaica Queens, which is about 15 miles away from Shea.
