the WHO

tommy (reissue)



Released: 11th Nov 2013


The full-blown rock opera about a deaf, dumb, & blind boy that launched the band to international superstardom in 1969, written almost entirely by Pete Townshend.

Hailed as a breakthrough upon its release, the double album has many excellent songs, including ‘I'm Free,’ ‘Pinball Wizard,’ ‘Sensation,’ ‘Christmas,’ ‘We're Not Gonna Take It,’ & the dramatic ten-minute instrumental ‘Underture.’ Townshend's ability to construct a lengthy conceptual narrative brought new possibilities to rock music. Despite the complexity of the project, he & the Who never lost sight of solid pop melodies, harmonies, & forceful instrumentation, imbuing the material with a suitably powerful grace.
