Good Soundtrack. The lost Who album.
on 4 January 2016
Tommy, has been the subject of several recordings after The Who s' original 1969 recording. The LSO produced by the late Lou Reisner is the best. Also the Smitherens, did their version a couple of years ago. There is also a couple of live albums by The Who and the Broadway version. This is the 1974 recording, released in 1975, of the movie sountrack. It not only features some very odd singers like Margaret and Oliver among others mixed with Roger Daltrey (as Tommy), Pete Townshend as narrator, Tina Turner as the Acid Queen, Eric Clapton as the priest and Elton John, as the pinball wizzard. The Who plays as a band in some cuts, while in others, either John Entwistle or Pete Townshend play together with people like Eric Clapton . Kenney Jones plays in here too. In fact, he, Entwistle, Pete and Roger play together in I Am Free, 3 years before Keith Moon s' dead. He also plays with Entwistle, and Townshend in The Hawker (with Clapton). There are diferences between the soundrack and this cd, since there are a couple of songs, where the Who plays and in here is Pete Townshend doing it all. The Overture, here was not included on the original LP and is a extraordinary piece, not similar to the Who s' original recording
