Community Reviews

The original Broadway cast recording is so much better.

This is the Who covering the songs Pete Townshend wrote for the fabulous rock opera Tommy, including the famous "Pinball Wizard." I do highly recommend that original Broadway soundtrack (http://www.aadl.org/catalog/record/1084878 ), but the Who by themselves on this CD are nowhere near as good.
