1.0 out of 5 stars Lifeless, 1 Nov. 2010
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Tommy - Deluxe Edition (Audio CD)
Don't waste your pennies on this.

I do not know what Pete Townsend thought he was doing but in creating the 5.1 surround sound he has taken all the life and vibrancy out of the original.

Music to snore too.

I was referring to the recorded quality of the record, not the songs on it. Compare say Damon Lyon Shaw engineering of Moon's drums on Tommy to say Glyn Johns on Who's Next, or even Bob Pridden on Live at Leeds.

Ok, good point, but remember Tommy was 1969 whereas Leeds was 1970 and Who's Next was 1971. Technology was moving apace at this point. Tommy is still a very fine record and stands up well against Abbey Road by The Beatles, produced the same year.

Sorry to go on, but if you listen to Led Zep's first from 1969, you'll see it's all about the engineers. ;-)

No worries, and actually a very good point. While I haven't listened to their whole first album, I know from that famous compilation (the title of which escapes me this moment) that it was indeed very well engineered, judging from the tracks that came from it. I guess we could talk about this for hours, quite happily! :-) So ok, maybe the Tommy engineering isn't as good, but surely it's still a great album. I certainly enjoy it time after time. :-)

It is their best album, raw and bluesy, also funnily enough, the best sounding one. Can be had very cheaply on here.
Also, the re-issue of Jimi's Band Of Gypsies is a wonderful sounding album. (1968) ;)

Haha, you've convinced me! I'll get both and let you know, ok? :-) This would be such a good chat over a pint, wouldn't it?!

or two.

Sure would, especially if the above-mentioned albums were all available on the jukebox. Could be a fun night in the pub! :-) Btw, LZ1 is cheap on here, but Gypsies (they spell it "Gypsys", wierdly) isn't such a bargain, so will have to wait. :-)
