(Spoken)
Uh, this is a valuable ... valuable Pete Townshend recording
With traffic noises in the back
And, uh, it's a collector's item
It shall always be ... treasured
And it's ‘So Sad 'bout Us’
And it's one of the very rare recordings of Pete Townshend alone
Unaccompanied, by himself on his guitar
