2015  reissue on 180g vinyl 2-LP edition-this 1973 concept album by the British Rock icons. This set gives a unique insight into the creation of this landmark album and features a remaster of the original double album. Quadrophenia is one of the most recognised albums by The Who and is hugely significant in popular culture, influencing many other artists, musicians and film-makers – inspiring the classic 1979 British film by Franc Roddam and the UK mod revival of the 1970s.Housed in a gatefold cover and includes a 44-page booklet.

“This 2011 revisit to The Who’s 1973 Quadrophenia recording is inspired by current and continuing interest in the project,” explains Townshend. “The Who performed a concert version of the piece at the Royal Albert Hall in 2010 for the Teenage Cancer Trust with excellent reviews, and the success of that event led to the prospect of a Who tour in 2012 based on the album. The last such tour was between 1996-1997.”

After the worldwide success of Tommy Pete Townshend s decided to take a second stab at&nbsp rock opera&nbsp and 1973 s Quadrophenia was the result Its premise is rooted in a teenage perspective in 196465 and the friction between&nbsp mods and rockers&nbsp in the London and Brighton regions of the UK The fourway split personality of the central figure&nbsp Jimmy&nbsp has been admitted to by Townshend as also being based on the distinct personalities of the four b and members The legendary Glyn Johns&nbsp production is both powerful and stunning with the writing and arrangements featuring maybe the most tasteful use of both sound effects and synthesizers in rock recording brilliant Pianist Chris Stainton Spooky Tooth contributes strong support on such songs as The Real Me The Punk Meets The Godfather I m One and Love Reign o er Me all classic Who performances This LP reissue was mastered and cut from the original&nbsp analog master tapes by Chris Bellman at Bernie Grundman Mastering using Classic s&nbsp ALL TUBE analog cutting system Pressed on Classic s 200g Super Vinyl Profile gives a slight edge to this reissue over the excellent original Track release Gatefold artwork including tipped in 44 page booklet are given the usual Classic authenticity treatment down to the paper stock being original For most Who fans this is the pinnacle of Who albums and is treated as such in all aspects of this reissue which is NOT to be missed
