The Who- Tommy pt 2- Pete Townshend

There are precious few albums made in 1969 of which you can, to this day, marvel at the sonic ear candy in the singing and playing, but it is safe to say that Tommy   by The Who has never sounded better than in its current deluxe and super deluxe collector editions. Complete with additional Pete Townshend home demos plus a complete Tommy  concert by The Who from 1969, those were  long thought by all ( except The Who’s sound man Bob Priddens ) to have been destroyed at the express orders of a manic, exhausted Townshend himself. A well-rested Pete rejoins me In the Studio  for the conclusion of Tommy‘s conception and birth as Townshend and Roger Daltrey prepare to perform in North America with an orchestra each night. – Redbeard
