Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
Overblown and pompous in the extreme, with a host of `guest stars' and `Who' members contributing to what amounts to the blueprint for the music `Tommy' the movie. Thank heavens the music can stand the arrangements, full choir and orchestra; it certainly gives a different view on the songs, while maintaining the narrative.
The guest vocalists are as follows:

Overture The London Symphony Orchestra, Pete Townshend, The Chamber Choir
It's a Boy Sandy Denny, The London Symphony Orchestra, The Chamber Choir
1921 Roger Daltrey, The London Symphony Orchestra, Steve Winwood, Graham Bell, Maggie Bell, The Chamber Choir

Amazing Journey The London Symphony Orchestra, Pete Townshend, The Chamber Choir
Sparks The London Symphony Orchestra, The Chamber Choir

Eyesight to the Blind Richie Havens, The London Symphony Orchestra, The Chamber Choir
Christmas Roger Daltrey, The London Symphony Orchestra, Steve Winwood, The Chamber Choir

Cousin Kevin The London Symphony Orchestra, The Chamber Choir, John Entwistle

The Acid Queen The London Symphony Orchestra, The Chamber Choir, Merry Clayton

Underture The London Symphony Orchestra, The Chamber Choir

Do You Think It's Alright? The London Symphony Orchestra, Steve Winwood, Maggie Bell, The Chamber Choir
Fiddle About The London Symphony Orchestra, Ringo Starr, The Chamber Choir
Pinball Wizard The London Symphony Orchestra, Rod Stewart, The Chamber Choir
There's a Doctor The London Symphony Orchestra, Steve Winwood, The Chamber Choir
Go to the Mirror Richard Harris, Roger Daltrey, The London Symphony Orchestra, Steve Winwood, The Chamber Choir

17 of 18 people found the following review helpful By Tina on 8 Jun. 2009
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
I got the original double vinyl version of this album as a birthday present years and years ago. I thought it would have made it to CD long before now, and more recently hoped it might just have been given a 5.1 surround sound makeover. Sadly not, though I continue to hope.

The packaging of the original vinyl is stunning; as always it suffers from being scaled down to CD size. The addition of sleeve notes charting the album's history is nice, though,

But that's eye-candy. As time passes, one becomes ever more aware how far ahead of its time the original Tommy really was. This version benefits from the full involvement of the original four members of The Who, and a cast of stars including Steve Winwood, Ringo Starr, Richie Havens, and a cameo from the late Sandy Denny, which was at one time rumoured to have established a record payment to any artist for just eight words!

I still enjoy listening to this over-blown elaboration on the original Tommy. It possibly makes me appreciate the old one more, but unlike some all-star, orchestral covers, this one is really very faithful to the spirit of the original. Pete Townsend was told (say the sleeve notes) that he couln't call the original Tommy an opera, beceause it wasn't structured like an opera ought to be. Perhaps this version adresses that supposed criticism. I think you could find you like this.

Format: Audio CD
I have always loved the concept and music that is "Tommy". As a hopeless "Who" fan, I fell 100% into the spiritual journey that is Townshend's masterpiece from the 60s.

Having seen them play this live when they were at their peak, the quality of the music is testament to the longevity of his Magnum Opus.

There has been a film................ I didn't like, too silly and the soundtrack added nothing to compare with the original.

There has been a stage production on both Broadway & West End..............tremendous.

But way back, there was this truly stunning Lou Reizner project. This in many ways is my favourite version of all. Tommy was always a magical piece of theatre which absorbed you and had to be treated in a serious way in order to get the full experience. Like a lot of good comedy.......it has to be played straight to get the maximum impact.

The mix of top class artists complimented with the classical arrangements to the original work..............simply mind blowing. Every time I listen to this I close my eyes and imagine it being played out on stage to rapturous audiences.

Defining the characters makes for a better understanding of the story Townshend was trying to put across. All the artists hit the top spot with their cameo roles and the individual performances from The Who members have rarely been bettered.

Reizner casts a wonderful spell over this version of Tommy ; only someone who really loves the original soundtrack could lovingly capture the beauty that is Tommy.

This is a CD that I never tire of. What I would have given to be present when most of this cast did the charity concerts at the roundhouse back in the early 70s.

Sight and sound restored!!!!!!

My folks bought me this album for Christmas in 1972 or 73. I was 13 or 14 at the time and my older brother had the Who's single of Pinball Wizard which I loved. I asked for the album for Christmas and they bought me this version. Why, I don't know, but what an inspired present it was!! It knocked my socks off!!!! I played in an orchestra at the time, and I was into classical music, folk, rock and soul; and delighted in the performances of Rod Stewart, Richie Havens, Merry Clayton, Sandy Denny et al. The artwork was stunning and enhanced the album experience tremendously. This was a regular listen and browse of mine for years until CDs superseded vinyl in the mid 80s. I kept the vinyl, but my record deck got packed away for years. When I was finally able to convert vinyl to CD, I transformed Tommy and into a reasonable digital copy but there were still a lot of distracting pops and clicks so I decided to try and find a "cleaner" version. I searched, but $125 from Amazon.com wasn't worth it as I had a passable copy which I decided to make do with. Until...... 2010...... when, I decided to have one last look on Amazon.co.uk, where I stumbled upon this re-release, and .........WOW!!!!!! Improved dynamic range; no crackles or pops; original artwork (smaller but faithfull reproductions of all the old enigmatic, high quality photos); and all the old sensations came flooding back. This may not be everyone's favourite version of Tommy, but it is mine. Sorry Elton and Tina, as much as I like you, Merry and Rod did a much better job, and a large part of my teenage years has been restored. Thanks Repertoire Records and Amazon. You have restored eyesight to the blind!
