Rael 2 (Pete Townshend) Towser Tunes, Inc./Fabulous Music Ltd./ABKCO Music, Inc. (BMI)

Original recording produced by Kit Lambert at Talentmasters Studios, New York, July 1967.

Previously released on Thirty Years Of Maximum R&B in 1994. [Lyrics from Pete's much longer draft of "Rael," which was to have been a Tommy size opera, were printed in Eye magazine in 1968 and a longer demo version, including another song called "That Motherland Feeling," has appeared on bootlegs.]

What I see is all I've seen,
In my sweetest sleep in dreams,
What I feel is all I've felt,
When by newborn babes I've knelt,
What I know now is all I've known,
That has been good while I have grown,
Bless the thoughts that made me sail
And the God who made Rael.
