Around the time Daltrey took on the Shirley Temple hair.
How ridiculous it looked along with the bare chest clobber.


But oh what a band ! emoticon

As Jay says the High numbers was their completely Mod period but I think they were "Mod" until 1965, then they became Mod influenced until 1967, when they got decidedly hippy and then...

"Mod Supergroup"? I thought that was The Steampacket with Long John Baldry, Rod stewart, Julie Driscoll and Brian Auger...
