Limited edition Super Deluxe Box Set Of The Who's classic concept album!

Features remastered album, 5.1 Surround Sound mix plus previously unreleased material!

Rolling Stone 500 Greatest Albums of All Time - Rated 96/5

Includes deluxe 80-page hard-back book along with personal notes, photos, lyrics and memorablia

Tommy, The Who's defining, breakthrough concept album — a full-blown rock opera about a deaf, dumb and blind boy that launched the band to international superstardom, was originally released in May 1969. The Who were at a career crossroads, mainly known as a singles band, when this project launched them as a serious 'albums band' and has now sold more than 20 million copies as well as regularly turning up in lists of the most influential albums of all time. Tommy is now available as a Limited Edition Super Deluxe Edition 3CD / Blu-ray disc set.

Tommy Super Deluxe Edition features the original album re-mastered along with a wealth of previously unheard material including 20 demos from Pete Townshend's archive and also a full live performance of Tommy from 1969 taken from tapes that infamously Townshend asked the band's sound engineer to burn. Eighteen of the previously unheard and thought to be long lost live tracks are taken from a live show at the Capital Theatre, Ottowa, Canada on October 15, 1969. Three others, "I'm Free", "Tommy's Holiday Camp", and "We're Not Gonna Take It" were lost due to tape reels being changed during the show so are taken from later shows of the same era. As discussed at length in Pete Townshend's autobiography the tapes were all supposed to be destroyed but were kept by long-time Who sound man Bob Pridden despite Pete's instructions. The Super Deluxe box also features a 5.1 mix featuring the complete album remixed in surround sound on Hi Fidelity Pure Audio Blu-ray format. Also included is a hardback 80-page full color book featuring rare period photos, memorabilia, a 20,000 word essay by legendary Who aficionado Richard Barnes and a rare facsimile Tommy poster. All of this is housed in a hard-back deluxe slip-case.
