Saturd80's: The Who Sell Out Edition

"The Who Sell Out" was released in 1967, and I don't think it came to my attention until the later of my high school years (75-77), but I really spent most of my listening time with this album after I moved to Corvallis. Satirizing our then trivial and amateurish advertising culture (compared to now) it was and remains brilliant. Odorono:

Heinz Baked Beans:

These are certainly not the most popular or well-known cuts off the album, but despite having heard them countless times, remain among my favorites. (I suspect the most popular and well-known tracks are Mary Anne with the Shaky Hands, and I Can See For Miles.)
