The original 1973 Qudrophenia album is my favourite Who album, and is also amongst my top ten albums of all time, so I had put off buying the soundtrack to the film for quite a while, thinking that the songs would be merely shortened versions of those that I already own - big mistake!
Listening to the versions on the soundtrack is like revisiting an old friend - they're still essentially the same, but they're also different. Some changes are subtle, whilst others are more obvious, giving some of the tracks a more polished feel. Some fans may not agree with this, but after listening to the original for so many years, it's really refreshing to hear these 'alternative' versions of some classic songs.
You also get three extra Who tracks - Get Out And Stay Out, Four Faces, and Joker James, as well as tracks by other artists featured in the film.
This album should be in every fan's collection - and at under £4 there is really no excuse not to own it.
