Tommy by The Who

My review of Tommy, the fourth studio album by the English rock band The Who, a double album first released on 17 May 1969. The album was mostly composed by guitarist Pete Townshend as a rock opera that tells the story about a deaf, dumb and blind boy, including his experiences with life and his relationship with his family. There are several instrumental cuts such as Overture and The Hawker.  Main cuts that got a lot of radio play is Pinball Wizard which was later performed by Elton John in the movie version, I’m Free and We’re Not Gonna Take It” is the final track which later released as See Me, Feel Me.  The Who performed See Me, Feel Me, followed by the refrain of Listening To You, at the 1969 Woodstock Festival.  I highly recommend this album to anyone that loves The Who or is a fan of rock operas.

    An album that only came alive when performed live for me. Still great though.
