Just got here and didn't hear any intro information on "Karen" but if this hasn't already been discussed, it may have been a cover of the Beach Boys-performed theme song for a show called (of all things) "Karen." It ran for 27 episodes in 1964-65.

How I feel about all of Mainstream 1970s MegaRawk... But in the 1970s I collected Beatle & then Who albums one by one - pretty much by my lonesome. There weren't *that* many... Who's first album had the significant advantage of being in the $1.99 bin when I discovered it... In fact, I started there ! If I recall - Kinks Greatest Hits on Reprise was a stretch @ a few dollars more - but it looked important...

I don’t quite remember how I got into The Who. My father was not a fan, so it was probably just through radio. I picked up the comp “Who’s Better, Who’s Best” and I was hooked. It was a good time to get into them because the 90s reissue campaign was just about to commence, which meant bonus tracks and the quite amazing “30 Years Of Maximum R&B” box.
