I think the versions from the Rock and Roll Circus and Live at Leeds are far better than the studio version. The music is more sonically clear, and there's this sense of energy that they get while playing the song, especially during "You Are Forgiven". Pete Townshend himself said that he always felt transformed while he played that section. - Gg2000
