After watching Almost Famous, I had expected the opening track of the album to be the same riff that we hear when William puts his sister's copy on the turntable for the first time. Apparently there was some cinematic trickery afoot and the riff is actually towards the end of the 3rd or 4th song on side 1. Maybe. The sides are kind of screwed up. Instead of having the two records paired as sides 1/2 and 3/4, they're setup as 1/4 and 2/3. Someone must have been high when they made that layout.
Good tunes though.

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.

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].

This refers to the 2013 vinyl issue. The cover is as you know a 2-fold, 3 panel affair however the first 2 panels hold nothing, are sealed shut. The 2 records and the booklet must be housed in the third panel which has one opening on the inside fold and one on the exterior edge which makes it impossible to get a nice bend to remove one or the other and very very difficult to access, period. I ended up opening the last slot creating another fold-open, managing to do so without tearing or damaging along the glue-line so the discs and book are laid in and cover folded shut. Planning to buy an old used copy cheap just to get the proper cover to use. Now to the discs: disc 1 contains sides 1, -and 4! Disc 2: side 2 & 3 - as if anyone is still using a stacking changer!! If you've read this far, you'll be pleased to hear that to my ears, these 2 slabs of wax sound great. I have the '96 cd reissue, deluxe cd, dvd, shmcd and the 2013 cd. Despite the poor configuration, it is worth it to have this album. Beware though make sure you check em straight away for possible severe warping.
