Product Description

Product Description

A stunning Director’s Cut of the landmark 1973 album produced, authorised and overseen by Pete Townshend. After the 1971 album Who ’s Next, Pete Townshend returned to the rock-opera concept, so dramatically realised through Tommy, with another ambitious double-album masterpiece. Based around the story of Jimmy, Quadrophenia tells the tale of a young mod and his struggle to come of age in the mid-1960s.The story also takes its influence from the band’s early fans from the original mod era, and its themes of teenage angst and disaffection still resonate strongly today. The project was intended to reflect the four characters of The Who and features some of Townshend’s most inspired, personal song-writing.

Quadrophenia is one of the most widely recognised albums of The Who’s career because of its classic depiction of mod culture, its renowned imagery and the magnificent music and powerful performances. The album is hugely significant in popular culture, influencing many other artists, musicians and film-makers, inspiring the classic 1979 British film by Franc Roddam and the UK ‘mod revival’ of the 1970s.

The super-deluxe limited edition box set features the following exclusive content:

• Discs one and two: the original double album 2011 remaster.

• Discs three and four: 25 unreleased demo tracks from Pete Townshend’s studio archive, giving a unique insight into the original vision for this remarkable body of work. Includes songs that were not included on the original album.

• Disc five: The Quadrophenia 5.1 EP eight track DVD-A re-mixed for surround sound.

• Deluxe 100-page, hard-back book featuring a brand new 13,000 word essay by Pete Townshend, shedding exclusive light on the period before and during the creation of the album, explaining some of the technical processes such as the startling and progressive use of synthesisers, as well as a revealing insight into the story of the album’s central character--the mod Jimmy. Also features Pete’s in depth, track-by-track guide to the demos and a revealing studio diary, a treasure trove of previously unseen personal notes, photographs, handwritten lyrics and memorabilia from the period, all recently uncovered in Pete’s archive.

• The package also replicates the striking black and white imagery from the original vinyl LP photography and adds never-seen colour out-takes of the famous cover shot.

• A replica 7" vinyl single featuring hit single "5.15" b/w "Water" in a picture sleeve.

• Set of six facsimile memorabilia ‘inserts’ housed in a card envelope.

• 20" x 30" poster.

• Limited edition, housed in a hard-back deluxe slip-case.
