Product Description

Product Description

This new Deluxe version of the album comes with a wealth of previously unheard material in the form of a live performance of Tommy from 1969, taken from tapes that infamously Townshend asked the band’s sound engineer to burn. The unmissable Super Deluxe version also includes 20 demos from Pete Townshend’s archive and the original album remixed in surround sound on new Hi Fidelity Pure Audio Blu-ray! Furthermore the Super Deluxe completes the ultimate Tommy experience with a hardback 80-page full-colour book featuring rare & unseen period photos, Pete’s hand-written lyrics & notes and fascinating memorabilia, a 22,000-word essay by legendary Who aficionado Richard Barnes and a facsimile 20” x 30” Tommy concert poster. We are also proud to make the full album available on standard CD, LP and Blu-Ray Audio formats.

5.0 out of 5 stars I Must Have Been Deaf, Dumb and Blind 14 Nov 2013
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Tommy had a tremendous impact at the time of its release and rightly so.
With hints of what to expect on their earlier albums The Who Sell Out and A Quick One
However, in my own personal opinion this impact was short lived with the follow up releases of Live At Leeds and Who's Next gaining more of my attention.
And the fabulous Quadrophenia, released four years later was also played far more extensively than Tommy.
Although.......and here comes the glaring contradiction Tommy witnessed live on stage is undeniably a 'tour de force' and has remained so, to some extent for 45 years.
Revisiting the live versions and experiencing the raw power of the Live at Leeds and Live at Hull versions undeniably showcases the true impact of one of the first 'Rock Operas'.
This 'Stunning Limited Edition Super-Deluxe Box Set' provides everything, the Remastered Original Album in HD, Pete Townshend's Demo's, The 5.1 Album Mix and The Live Bootleg from 1969.
The Deluxe hard-back book provides an insight into the development of Tommy along with extensive photographs, notes, hand written song lyrics and memorabilia.
The convenience of the CD format (as opposed to having to change each side on vinyl) now allows me to truly enjoy this ground breaking piece of music as I really should have done on its release.
Live at Leeds and Who's Next are still the best the Who have produced but Tommy definitely has a place in history, 'live' or otherwise and to me 45 years later it now sounds so much more coherent.
I will now pay Tommy the respect it deserved but wasn't given on its original release.
This Box Set will take pride of place alongside my Quadrophenia, Super Deluxe Edition and Live At Leeds 40th Anniversary Special Edition awaiting to be joined by the Who's Next Super Deluxe Edition Box Set.

5.0 out of 5 stars Finest version yet 26 Nov 2003
Format:Audio CD
Finally mastered from the totally original tapes this really is THE ultimate version of Tommy. Pete Townshend has done a cracking job of the 5.1 mix with clarity and seperation so accurate that it'll make your ears bleed! Pinball Wizard is an especially good example where the acoustic intro comes from one side only for the electric guitar to literally jump out from somewhere else. Out of all the SACDs I have this must be the best in terms of mix quality and the way the various instrumentation is distributed to the 5 channels. The bass is pretty forceful too but never overpowering. All in all the over-equalised sound of the previous remaster is removed and in a way it sounds like the instruments have been set free from any restraints. I haven't yet played the standard CD layer so I can't comment on what the previous reviewer said. If you don't have an SACD player yet then if you are a Who fan you're doing yourself a serious disservice. This disc is a good enough reason to invest. Here's to a few more Who classics being given the same treatment.

5.0 out of 5 stars More album than albatross 24 Jun 2003
By Touring Mars VINE VOICE
Format:Audio CD
It's well known that the phenomenal success of Pete Townshend's classic 'rock opera' "Tommy" became a bit of an albatross for the group, in that they could never play another live set again without playing 'Pinball Wizard' or atleast half of this album. That is as maybe, and seasoned Who veterans may be well sick of it by now as well, but the only reason you CAN get sick of this album is because you just can't stop listening to it.
From the first listen I knew I was on to something great... the album is essentially a storyboard, and the songs are interspersed with small 'links' which can't really be called songs, but add to the album's 'concept' of being a so-called 'rock opera'. But it is not just the wild variety in the music that made this album so successful. The range of issues that the narrative of "Tommy" tackles is uniquely broad, challenging and (especially at the time) hugely controversial. Tommy, a deaf, dumb and blind boy, we discover is not physically dysfunctional in any way. Rather, he has become conditioned to be 'deaf, dumb and blind' through the manipulation, mistreatment and abuse of those around him, particularly his family. The way that Townshend addresses these issues in song is really quite remarkable. The lyrics lend the album a disturbing overtone which gives the music an extra cutting edge.
The musicianship throughout the album is of the highest order as well. Townshend's guitar is unerringly brilliant, from his carefully crafted finger picks, to his characteristically fierce rhythm and powerful electric riffs. He also has his lion's share of lead vocals ('Sensation' being an outstanding example), although it is Daltrey once again who steals the show with some powerhouse performances, including 'I'm Free', 'Pinball Wizard' and 'Amazing Journey'.

5.0 out of 5 stars The original Rock Opera 15 May 2013
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Reminds me of my younger days, when it was all very new and revolutionary. The Who are one of those classic bands whose influence echoes down the ages, discernible in many pieces by bands whose fans have never even heard of The Who. Let alone Tommy.

5.0 out of 5 stars Extra! Extra! read all about it 26 Jan 2001
Format:Audio CD
In 1969 with little money remaining from the previous four years of rampant destruction, mutilation,explosions,energy and orgies, The Who aimed at breaking the traditional structure of album containing song after song by releasing what many condsider to be the first proper concept album. Of course it wasn't actualy the first, See the faces 'Odgen's nut gone flake' or The Beatles 'Pepper',but what it did was set the presidence taking an idea for a story line and streching it out over the whole album instead of just a few songs ( as pepper did), or on one side of an L.P (Odgen's...). Townshend had previously experimented with the idea of a longer song with an ongoing narrative in the compositions 'A Quick one while he's away' and 'Rael' with varing success. It was in Tommy however that Townshend would finally bring together his tallent for the three minute pop song and his desire to provide the fans with a little more to digest (lyrically and musicaly) than the usual radio friendly ditties of his contempories. This was after all the period in music history when musicians would begin using the term Rock rather than Pop. Townshend would not disapoint. Tommy contains of not only a collection of Townshends finest moments as a songwriter, but also of a band at their creative height. From the rumbling bass lines of Entwhistle (then as now one of the finest bass players in this country), to the orchestrated precision of Keith's drumming, the ever present block chords of Pete and Daltrey, well, he had never sounded better. Tommy mixed the Who's tendency for loud power pop with their fondness for vocal harmonies, lyrical originality, heavy riffs, striking melodies and their unique tallent for creating so much variation out of just the basic rock set up of guitars and drums.
