|The High Numbers (The Who) singles chronology|
"Zoot Suit" was written (with music copied from American Soul records - Zoot Suit being a direct lift of the tune of The Dynamics "Misery", while "I'm The Face" was based on Slim Harpo's "Got Love If You Want It") by Peter Meaden, the band's first manager. It was meant for a mod audience, but it failed to chart. The band changed their name back to the Who, found new management and released their own composition "I Can't Explain", which was a top ten hit in the United Kingdom.
"I'm the Face" appeared on "Odds & Sods" in 1974 and on the album's remastered versions.
"Zoot Suit" b/w "I'm the Face" was reissued in 1980 and reached #49 in the UK.
Both songs were featured on the Thirty Years of Maximum R&B box set.
