The Who‘s Tommy has been reissued in the past, but now the 1969 concept album has been updated to a deluxe edition, mastered by Kevin Gray, pressed at Quality Record Pressings, and presented in its original LP configuration.

The Who's defining, breakthrough concept album — a full-blown rock opera about a deaf, dumb and blind boy that launched the band to international superstardom — originally was released in May 1969. The Who were at a career crossroads, known mainly as a singles band, but this project launched them as a serious ‘albums band' and it has now sold more than 20 million copies as well as regularly turning up in lists of the most influential albums of all time.

Originally banned by the BBC and by some U.S. radio stations, the underlying child abuse and molestation theme in the tale of the "deaf, dumb and blind" Tommy Walker was a startling, darker side to the former mod-rockers from Shepherds Bush. The album peaked at No. 4 on the Billboard chart. Townshend proved to himself and the world he could still attempt such libretto and still rock. It spawned such Who staples as "Pinball Wizard," "The Acid Queen," "I'm Free" and "We're Not Gonna Take It/See Me, Feel Me."
