Easy to forget this was made in 1969, just because it felt so far ahead of it's time, because the idea of a sci-fi-social-commentary concept record based around a deaf, dumb and blind lad who was good at an arcade machine seems such a gigantic leap from songs about rock n roll and girls only a few years prior. Possibly the greatest rock opera ever recorded and now here on Half-Speed Master Double Vinyl LP.

Regarded as one of the most important albums of all time, Tommy is a rock opera about a Deaf Dumb and Blind Boy, released in 1969, it reached number 2 in the UK charts and no 7 in the US.

The album contains songs such as Pinball Wizard, The Acid Queen and I’m Free and has been mastered by long time Who engineer Jon Astley from the original tapes and is packaged in original sleeve with obi and certificate of authenticity.

This black vinyl version is engineered by Miles Showell at Abbey Road Studios using a half-speed mastering technique which produces a superior vinyl cut.
