Product Notes

Limited double vinyl LP pressing in gatefold sleeve. 2015 release. Pete Townshend has created a new orchestral version of one of The Who's landmark albums - Quadrophenia. The new incarnation of this classic rock opera is the latest chapter in Townshend's lifelong mission to break the three-minute mould of the traditional pop song and take rock music to a higher artistic level. In the 1960s he defined the concept of the 'rock opera' with Tommy, taking it a stage further with Quadrophenia. Conceived and written by Pete in 1973, Quadrophenia went on to become an iconic feature film. The new 'symphonised' version of Quadrophenia, an album originally released by The Who in 1973, was orchestrated by Rachel Fuller, a professional composer, orchestrator and singer-songwriter. Performed by the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra and the London Oriana Choir conducted by Robert Ziegler. Includes vocals by Alfie Boe, Billy Idol, Phil Daniels and Townshend.
