Tommy is a soundtrack album by The Who with contributions from numerous artists. The soundtrack was used in the 1975 Tommy film that was based on the original album that was released by The Who in 1969. Pete Townshend oversaw the production of this double-LP recording that returned the music to its rock roots, and on which the unrecorded orchestral arrangements he had envisaged for the original Tommy LP were realised by the extensive use of synthesiser.
Recorded at Ramport (The Kitchen) Studios and Eel Pie Sound, London.
I think it's a great cast, but what really knocks me out is the sound. This is pretty much the polar opposite to the original album, which is very quiet and generally low key, itself often attacked for its poor production and lack of energy. Remember, this was the next album from Townshend/The Who after the fantastic, wonderful, classic Quadrophenia. You can hear a lot of that in this album including Townshend's growing guitar effects and ARP work. Also, this is around the time Townshend got his friend Clapton out of seclusion and up on stage (see the Rainbow Concert cd).

Though the album was slightly flawed, Townshend's ability to construct a lengthy conceptual narrative brought new possibilities to rock music. Despite the complexity of the project, he and the Who never lost sight of solid pop melodies, harmonies, and forceful instrumentation, imbuing the material with a suitably powerful grace.
