was not bad , but it was not great either, KPG had to work with hi res digital files as the tapes were not available, and in my opinion i think he did a great job for what he was given to work with,,, man i would love to see what he could do with the Master Tapes, if they ever reappear again?

I have a clean copy of this and I was utterly blown away when I listened to it for the first time. If you're able to get a clean cheap copy of this press, do it. You won't be disappointed. It sounds fantastic!

I'm not sure there's a lot of substance to the story of Tommy, but this might have been the first entirely consistent rock opera ever. It wasn't the first by any means, but it's easily the earliest of the most successful rock operas made. Everything works together very well, and there is so much variety in terms of sound and styles. And separate from the storyline, it's just a great album of music over four sides. It must have been an interesting time to be a fan of the Who, after their first several albums of excellent mod and rock music, to get this thing that just went miles and miles beyond what anyone could have expected. Tommy truly is rock history.

This is a very solid pressing, my copy is exactly the same edition of the pics shown here, but I have a insert with lyrics. Plus it's stereo, not mono as indicated.

My copy had the labels wrong: disc two has sides 2 en 3 on it, but side 2 is labeled as 3 vice versa. Anyone else has this?

Ten to fifteen dollars for vg+ vinyl. Great value for this piece of rock history! My copy was graded vg+ and sounds rich and clean. Booklet with lyrics completes the package

“Tommy” is absolutely one of my favorite albums of all time. It has been my number one on my album ranking for a while. I adore concept albums and rock operas and this was one of the most prolific ones of its time. “Jesus Christ Superstar” is another, that is also one of my favorites, where it started as a concept album and then was made into both a musical and a film. There’s something so valuable to me about an album that started as a record before it hit the stage. Maybe it’s the same as people who love the book more than the film. For me, it’s probably because I would love to write concept albums that almost share a cinematic or theatrical format, but to release it as a record before it would be converted into a production.

The story follows Tommy who is a blind, deaf, and mute boy who lost his senses after traumatically seeing his father murdered by his wife’s lover. Throughout his story, we see the struggles of being a disabled youth, which includes bullying, rape, and an early introduction to sex and drugs, and how one’s story can be exploited into a national, beloved freak show. As with most demagogues, there tends to be a falling off point where they reach a level of fame and recognition but some thing, whether financial or political, ruins their character and many people lose their following.

With the music, I adore the hard rock style combined with subgenres of progressive rock and art rock. I also noticed that The Who tends to have a bit of a folk/country western/southern rock element to them. This may go for other 60s bands as well, but I noticed this throughout some of the songs, where you can hear elements of 60s culture with the outdoorsy, hippie, Woodstock element to it. It’s fascinating and adds both culture and a timestamp to it. Some of the style reminds me a little bit of Arlo Guthrie or more southern rock bands like Mountain.

Another great element about this album is the singability. Every song is so catchy and easy to sing along to and it makes it more enjoyable to listen to.

“‘21” is a really interesting song because it helps explore the unconscious little bit more. It shows the things in your childhood, especially trauma, can have serious mental and physical effects on you. It’s also some interesting backstory, which shows the effects that something as simple as being unfaithful to your partner can have.

This album is super bold including a subplot that only lasts one song. It’s about the story of Sally Simpson who is a fan of Tommy’s and accidentally got slashed in the face being at the front of the stage, and then moved on and got married to someone else and forgot about him. It’s not completely relevant to the entire story but it’s such an interesting, short story that connects some of the themes and plays off the main narrative. This is one of the earliest examples of postmodern storytelling that I could think of in music.
To really mimic operas, the album has an overture, underture, several songs under 30 seconds, and instrumental pieces that serve as a sort of bridge or background music.

One of the beauties of concept albums are leitmotifs, as they are basically themes that tie the story together and make connections across the album. Tommy has both leitmotifs in its themes and music. There are a lot of rhythms and melodies that reappear throughout the album, especially with a stylistic similarity of driving beats and an emphasis on bass, whether that’s bass guitar or bass drum. Those specific rhythms are typically very loud and prominent, maybe as a sort of symbolic way of representing deep vibrations, which is one of the only things Tommy can sense. As for themes and lyrics, there is the “See me” and “Tommy can you hear me” motif. Those appear throughout the album in many different songs and add a nice touch to each song that it’s part of. Typically, these sections will contrast the songs they are part of, yet fit at the same time and some of the pieces feel more like a classical piece than a rock song. It’s a little bit of the best of both worlds, with the rock opera genre.

Another common theme throughout the album is glass and mirrors, which is representative of reflections of identity and the concept of smashing and releasing. The song “I’m Free” is extremely cathartic and wonderful feeling as Tommy can finally sense and a lot of this symbolism goes along with smashing a mirror. This is all about destroying what people expect of you and why you’re supposed to see. It’s a liberation.

One of the most interesting things about the album is the perspective. It’s all about Tommy, clearly, but it seems to be from the point of view of other people in his life. We see a lot from cousin Kevin, uncle Ernie, his mother, and even a whole section about perspective of some random girl named Sally Simpson. With these themes of reflection, it might be very well that all these people in Tommy’s life see themselves in Tommy and by telling his story from their perspective, they’re relating their experiences to his and in some situations, like Kevin’s bullying and Ernie’s diddling, their negative actions towards Tommy might just be a reflection of their own insecurities and problems, that they choose to take out on him because he’s easy to manipulate and take advantage of.

I also love the masterful musicianship of the band on this album. Every instrument is fantastic. I love how the vocals incorporate harmonies from the other bandmembers, like the Beatles would, and how the lead singer uses a lot of vocal distortion, soul, screaming, and explores his vocal style throughout. He’ll switch between clean and raw and incorporate some elements of normal singing versus goofy singing versus spoken word. One of the biggest things about the album is the drums. They are incredible and prominent throughout, specially with the dotted eighth note rhythm that stands out throughout the album.

Overall, “Tommy” is a masterpiece, musically and conceptually, pioneering the rock opera genre and telling an inherently strange and fascinating story of a disabled demagogue. Unless, I hear another concept album that has even more of a postmodern story with folk and progressive styles, then this will be my number one for a while (in slight competition with “Punisher” by Phoebe Bridgers.

I’m not entirely sure what the cover is supposed to be. I wish it was more relevant to the story or visually interesting. However, that particular shade of blue will always stand out immediately to me with the black diamonds. It’s unique-looking and I’ll be able to guess it upon even a brief glance.
