Produced by The Who at Eel Pie on August 14, 1973, this was the opening track on the original Odds and Sods album in 1974.
Pete: "A John Entwistle song about touring on the road. He describes in luscious detail the joys and delights of such romantic venues as Australia (pause to fight off temporary attack of nausea), America (pause to count the money) and of course that country of the mysterious and doubting customs official, Germany (pause, whether they like it or not, for 'God Save the Queen'). Listen out for the field sound effects actually recorded in the countries we toured. 'Postcard' was originally recorded in my house for a maxi single. They were EPs that only cost as much as a single. Ours unfortunately never got released! I engineered this one with one hand on the controls and the other on the guitar. That's why I only play one chord throughout the whole song."
