Tommy Super Deluxe Edition by The Who

Tommy Super Deluxe Edition by The Who

It’s an album that tends to split opinion, but if you are a fan, you’ll probably want to own the the Super Deluxe box set of The Who’s Tommy, which is released on 11 November 2013.

The package will include a remastered version of the original 1969 album, 20 demos from Pete Townshend’s archive and also a full live performance of Tommy recorded at the Capital Theatre, Ottowa, Canada on October 15, 1969. Those exclusive add-ons are the big draw here.

It will also feature a 5.1 mix featuring the complete album remixed in surround sound on a new Hi Fidelity Pure Audio Blu-ray format, as well as a hardback 80-page full-colour book featuring rare period photos, memorabilia, an extensve essay by Richard Barnes and a rare facsimile Tommy poster housed in a hard-back deluxe slip-case.

If that’s a bit much, a Deluxe Edition will also be released, which will the remastered original album and the 1969 live performance. Both are available to order now at amazon.co.uk and you can see the tracklisting below.
