I Am is a collaborative tribute concept album to Meher Baba featuring Pete Townshend, Michael Da Costa and others, first released in 1972. The album includes the original version of "Baba O'Riley" played by Townshend alone without lyrics, which, at 9:48, is almost twice as long as the augmented version which opens Who's Next.

Other albums dedicated to Meher Baba and featuring Townshend include Happy Birthday, With Love, and Avatar (a compilation of the previous three albums, later released as Jai Baba).[1][unreliable source?]
