When people talk about The Who's Tommy, they generally seem to focus on the form rather than the content of the album. Listeners will comment on the originality of Townshend's application of opera sensibilities to a rock and roll album, and so on and so forth. Yes, it's true, what made The Who's Tommy a major hit rather than a pop-culture after-thought was its structure and distinction as the first "Rock Opera," but I believe that the most artistically redeeming quality of the album is its message.
During a time when psychedelic experimentation was the order of the day, The Who had the intestinal fortitude to release an album preaching transcendence through spiritual exploration. Tommy is a wholesale rejection of the entire psychedelic culture dominating the late 60's and a plea for spiritual enlightenment. More than just great music, Tommy is an album with purpose and a positive message.

The 5.1 mix does not produce a great soundstage like the sadc version. The drums are sticked at The left rear speaker, The electric guitare at The right front speaker. The bass is at The left speaker and The centre channel is not used significantly. You are always confronted with an x listening pattern (rear left_rigth front pattern). This is very annoying. In the future i will be very selective with product mix by bob Britten and Richard Whittaker. why not hired Steven Wilson or Nick Davis that do great job in The 5.1 music mix world. I give a 4 stars not for the 5.1 mix, but for the high fidelity sound crisp, clear and precise of the stereo mix.

Format: Audio CD
The whole Who "deluxe edition" release effort has been a mixed bag, especially this Tommy set which is missing a couple of important elements. In contrast, the Live at Leeds set was released previously with a remixed and upgraded package that was terrific. The later Leeds deluxe set could be justified because it made the entire concert available in a cleaned up format with the complete Tommy on Disk 2 and decent liner notes (the bootleg version of complete Leeds was sonically uneven but was, at least, chronologically correct - "Tommy" did not end the show but was the middle core of it). The Who's Next set, while the first disk was interesting but not as well chosen as the remixed single '95 release, was justifiable because of (finally) releasing the Old Vic concert tracks in pristine form on Disk 2. And the liner notes were informative and worthwhile.
Tommy, on the other hand, was never released in enhanced form, just a mid-nineties remix that was good, not great. The jump to a deluxe set disappoints in several ways: the remix of the original tracks was great, in either format, but to make the argument for a two disk set the additional material needs to expand the artistic vision of the work. Here, the second disk seems somewhat hashed together yielding little insight into the creative process. The unreleased tracks were either undistinguished instrumental tracks or inferior releases of out takes already released on other sets. For example, Cousin Kevin Model Child is a pale copy of the one on Odds and Sods and the Townsend demos are presented in better context in his "Scoop" series and seem tacked on here to fill time. The Beatles anthology series did this better. However, finally getting the frantic track "Dogs, Pt. II" on CD is welcome.

Although this is not the first "Rock Opera", that title belongs to The Pretty Things " S. F. Sorrow " which is where Townsend got the idea, it still is perpetrated to be so. I acquired this for my son as he is a bigger fan of the Who than I am and after hearing it again, it still doesn't hold a candle to the genius of "S.F. Sorrow " !

This collection of songs is a classic. But to have it in lossless and 5.1 surround sound just puts icing on the cake.

I would be giving Tommy five stars but the number of releases are getting out of hand. Original release. A few years ago a 2CD version with demos on the second CD [there was a DVD audio release as well]. Now released again on 2CD but this time with a "concert" from the Tommy tour from various locations [and a Blu-ray audio release]. Was the release from a few years ago that bad? Did Pete just tinker a bit with the release - or was it an excuse to have a box set as well? [I suspect some of the other big Who albums like Who's Next will get the box set and re-release editions again].

A great job by Pete Townsend in the mix. Sounds great if you have an SACD player.
Some Sony blu-rays have the capability.
