The Who | Tommy | 180g Vinyl 2LP

  • $ 29.99

The Who's pioneering rock opera Tommy requires no introduction. Regarded as the very first rock opera, this 1969 breakthrough recording from the genius of Pete Townshend was highly controversial upon its initial release. The conceptual tale of the "deaf, dumb and blind" Tommy Walker displayed a startling, darker side to the former mod-rockers from Shepherds Bush. 

With Tommy, Townshend proved to himself and the world he could attempt such a libretto and still rock! It spawned such Who staples as "Pinball Wizard," "The Acid Queen," "I'm Free" and "We're Not Gonna' Take It" and the movie, Broadway and concertized versions have kept its imaginative story and music in the forefront for the past four decades!

While many vinyl editions of this 1969 work have come and gone over the years, none have the dynamics, tonalities, and spatial qualities of this double-LP set.
