In November 2012, the Who started a U.S. tour of Quadrophenia, dubbed " Quadrophenia and More". The group played the entire album without any guest singers or announcements with the then regular Who line-up (including Starkey and bassist Pino Palladino, who replaced Entwistle following his death in 2002) along with five additional musicians. The tour included additional video performances, including Moon singing "Bell Boy" from 1974 and Entwistle's bass solo in "5:15" from 2000. [77] After Starkey injured his wrist, session drummer Scott Devours replaced him for part of the tour with minimal rehearsal. [78] [79] [80] The tour progressed, with Devours drumming, to the UK in 2013, ending in a performance at Wembley Arena in July. [81] The Who: Album Guide". rollingstone.com.

Classic Records from 2007, 140 or 200 grams. I read mixed opinions about this. Some people say that this is the best and definitive version of the original Quadrophenia mix. Others said that this pressing is bad, with pressing noises or that the first record is excelent sounding and the second is too bright and too noisy.

Perrone, Pierre (24 January 2008). "The worst gigs of all time". Archived from the original on 25 January 2014 . Retrieved 26 January 2015. Critical reaction to Quadrophenia was positive. Melody Maker 's Chris Welch wrote "rarely have a group succeeded in distilling their essence and embracing a motif as convincingly", while Charles Shaar Murray described the album in New Musical Express as the "most rewarding musical experience of the year". [49] Reaction in the US was generally positive, though Dave Marsh, writing in Creem gave a more critical response. [49] Lenny Kaye, wrote in Rolling Stone that "the Who as a whole have never sounded better" but added, "on its own terms, Quadrophenia falls short of the mark". [50] In a year-end top albums list for Newsday, Robert Christgau ranked it seventh, and found it exemplary of how 1973's best records "fail to reward casual attention. They demand concentration, just like museum and textbook art." [51] The narrative centres on a young working-class mod named Jimmy. He likes drugs, beach fights and romance, [5] and becomes a fan of the Who after a concert in Brighton, [6] but is disillusioned by his parents' attitude towards him, dead-end jobs and an unsuccessful trip to see a psychiatrist. [5] He clashes with his parents over his usage of amphetamines, [6] and has difficulty finding regular work and doubts his own self-worth, [7] quitting a job as a dustman after only two days. [6] Though he is happy to be "one" of the mods, he struggles to keep up with his peers, and his girlfriend leaves him for his best friend. [5]

Pete Townshend Plots Short 'Classic Quadrophenia' Tour – Townshend will revisit the Who's famous double album with an orchestra to reach "classical and pop music lovers alike" (by Elias Leight)". rollingstone.com. 6 June 2017.

Retrieved 10 September 2017. {{ cite book}}: |work= ignored ( help) The underlying idea here is contrast. Contrast between songs - "I'm One" is 100% acoustic calm, while "5:15" is powered by bombastic brass, and "The Real Me" starts the album off in a most perfectly chaotic way. Contrast also happens inside the songs - between Roger's bold, strong voice and Pete's soft, heartfelt vocals. This contrast reflects Jimmy's internal conflict, the different voices in his head. But through this point and counterpoint, album stays cohesive - while the story does require a little reading (there is not much "dialogue"), the revisiting of themes keep it familiar.Tommy and Quadrophenia: Live".

Then, in the "Artista" field, search "Who". Remember Quadrophonic sound? No? It was an early attempt to create “SurroundSound” using four speakers rather than the usual two for stereo. The equipment was costly and didn’t catch on, but for a time in the early 1970s, it was a luxury item for audiophiles.
