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.

Tommy (Original Soundtrack Recording).

These two traits, unsurprisingly, spill over to the soundtrack, which is hardly just a re-recording of the Who album - it's a gaudy reinvention of the album, padded with elaborate production twists until it's ready to burst.

Paul Nicholas played Jesus in the original London cast of Superstar, Ann-Margaret in the first half of her movie career was primarily a singer. All the arguments really boil down to Oliver Reed in a leading role and Jack Nicholson in a cameo. The original album focused on WW1 and the early Twenties. Townshend shifted this version to WW2 and the early 50s. The story is complex and this new version (remixed in 2000) clarifies much. Now I want to see the movie again. 2 people found this helpful.

Tommy: Original Soundtrack. Disc 1. Overture from tommy. Not strictly a Who album, though all four members of The Who are featured on the reworked versions of Tommy songs as they appeared in the movie. Theres an interesting selection of vocalists, including Oliver Reed, Jack Nicholson, Tina Turner, Ann-Margret and Elton John, whose spin through ‘Pinball Wizard’ with his own stage band is the albums highlight and which became a hit single in 1975.

Album · 1993 · 35 Songs. Go to the Mirror/Listening to You (From "Tommy"). Norm Lewis, Alice Ripley, Marcia Mitzman, Jonathan Dokuchitz, Buddy Smith, Jody Gelb, Tracy Nicole Chapman & Michael Cerveris. 4. Tommy, Can You Hear Me? (From "Tommy"). Norm Lewis, Anthony Barrile, Michael Arnold, Michael McElroy, Christian Hoff, Paul Dobie, Donnie Kehr, Sherie Scott, Timothy Warmen & Lee Morgan.
