Screen Shot 2012-11-21 at 10.10.21 AM

On page 17 of the latest King Arthur Flour catalog appear not one but two classics from England.

How is an American to decide?

Here is where my British contingent — Sarah Lyall, you fall in here on the basis of your current deployment — could weigh in with some choice commentary if they so desired.

Clotted Cream or Double Devon Cream, apiece: $8.95.

"The Acid Queen" — The Who ("Tommy")

One of the great underappreciated classics of rock.

Pete Townshend's distinctive voice lends a grating, insistent quality to the vocal that puts in the pantheon.

My favorite YouTube comment: "My buddy and I are gonna drop acid and watch 'Tommy.'"

Just so.

Townshend wrote the 1969 song.
