hear yourself a Who

Album Title: 
Band Name: 
The Who
Release Year: 

Tommy is a rock and roll classic. There, I said it. Before the pedophilia charges, before being banned from all holiday inns, before the rhythm section ended up under ground, there was Tommy. Pete Townsend's crowning rock achievement, besides the windmill move... Tons of rich orchestration, rock and roll, pinball, story born out of a drug trip, what more could you ask for? I recently re-watched the feature film version, and that spurred my renewed interest in the album. The theatrical version contains spots by Eric Clapton, Tina Turner, Elton John, and of course The Who. The album features Roger Daltry singing all parts that would later be filled by the greats I just listed. My preference is for Roger Daltry. Maybe it is the distance in time seperating the film from the album, but Roger's voice carries much more weight on the songs than any of the later guests. (take for example Elton John's Pinball Wizard... need i say more?) In addition to Tommy, i also have been playing Meaty, Beaty, Big and Bouncy, and older English import Who greatest hits album. Go hear yourself a Who.
