** This would present a problem with performing the record live. During the original 1973-74 tour, Roger Daltrey would often take time between songs to describe what was going on in the story. For the early dates on the 1996-97 tour, they had Phil Daniels (the actor who played Jimmy in the film) as a live narrator onstage. For the rest of the tour, the narration segments were pre-filmed, with Alex Langdon as Jimmy.

*** In live performances, John would get ADayInTheLimelight via his bass solo near the end of "5:15".

* TrainSong: "5.15". The slow beginning of the song symbolizes the train at the station before departure, then picks up tempo with the train in motion, then slows down again near the end to symbolize it arriving at its destination.
