Who’s Next started life as a Pete Townshend concept entitled Lifehouse, which contained enough songs for a double album, but the project was eventually reduced to a single LP. Recordings for the album began in New York with Kit Lambert as producer, but the band weren’t satisfied with the results and returned to London to re-record them at Olympic Studios in Barnes with Glyn Johns. Most of the songs recorded with Johns appeared on Who’s Next while the leftovers appeared on singles and later, Odds & Sods (see album). Who’s Next became the only Who album to make in the UK charts.
Love Ain't for Keeping" is a song written by Pete Townshend and originally released by the Who on their 1971 album Who's Next. Its themes include the joy of physical love, the power of nature and the need to live for the moment. At two minutes and ten seconds, "Love Ain't for Keeping" is the shortest song on Who's Next.

The cover photo for The Who’s Who’s Next album shows a photograph of the band apparently having just urinated on a large concrete piling protruding from a slag heap. The photo was taken at Easington Colliery a former coal mining town in County Durham, England. Easington Colliery is situated to the north of Horden, and a short distance to the east of Easington Village. It’s somewhat impossible to know exactly where this concrete monolith stood but most people agree that it was in the general area above the beach
Without any hesitation, the four Who members gathered around one of the mysterious objects, and Russell started shooting. We did a lot of different poses, including some based on the 2001: A Space Odyssey idea of the apes gathering around the black obelisk. Then Pete started to piss on it, and I went with the flow, as it were. The others also tried to take Pete’s lead, but couldn’t actually do it. It was all a spur-of-the-moment thing. They poured some rainwater on the pillar to achieve a similar effect. Russell admits that he didn’t exactly have his finger on the motor drive, and took only.
Who’s Next, regardless of what you may have been led to believe to the contrary, is neither the soundtrack to the realization of Pete Townshend‘s apparently-aborted Hollywood dream, the greatest live album in the history of the universe, nor a, shudder, rock opera, but rather an old fashioned long-player containing ved, superbly-performed,, and sometimes even. exciting rock and roll. Having said which, I will digress.
