The Who-Tommy pt 1- Pete Townshend

Like peeling back layer after layer of an onion, the many stages of The Who‘s Tommy  conception, gestation, and birth as the first successful rock opera are further revealed, it seems, every time Tommy composer Pete Townshend cleans out a storage closet. Additional demos and even a complete 1969 London Wembley arena performance of the entire Tommy  have now resurfaced on the new deluxe/ super deluxe editions, and Townshend joins me In the Studio to present this rock sonogram of The Who Tommy   while still in the womb in part one. –Redbeard
