Ok, that aside, I as a young 10 year old Who/ Elton John fan went to the cinema over and over to see this grandioso Rock opera come to life before my eyes. Even today watching the film on DVD brings back the original excitement. It was up to the casting director to chose who took each role and would sing each part. Ken Russell was a genius in my opinion on his choices. I always wondered what Pete thinks today of this movie.
Elton John's great version of "Pinball Wizard" (with a bit of "I Can't Explain" thrown in at the end) is worth half the 5 stars I listed. What I also love are the new renditions of the Tommy tunes that The Who actual do like "Amazing Journey", "I'm Free", "Sensation", "Listening To You/See Me, Feel Me" & "Sally Simpson" to name a few. If you are a Who nut like me, this collection is a must! The hard rocking version of "I'm Free" I always loved better than the original laid back version.
Then again, if you are a Who completest like myself, you have this already! The soundtrack to one of the greatest musicals of my time!
As I recall, being a Who fan, I was initially somewhat disappointed by the fact that many of the songs are not actually performed by The Who and sung by Roger Daltrey. Guest artists and musicians (studio and band) appear frequently, w/ or w/o members of The Who. However, they do, for the most part, their own great job of interpreting the music from the Tommy rock opera. There is a lot to like here if you can get past the fact that The Who did not perform in much of this recording.
I must admit, I do not own a copy of the original Who recording of Tommy. Though, I have heard many of the songs played on radio. With exception of possibly the live performances of Tommy (e.g. at Woodstock), in nearly all cases, the original movie soundtrack recording surpasses the original album release. As noted by others below, there is a lack of energy and a laid back approach (forgive me, mellowed out) in The Who version of Tommy and a fair amount of harmonization of vocals by the band. In contrast, in the movie soundtrack, the song arrangements have all been improved and embellished with additional instrumentation (keyboards & brass), synthesizers, energy, and emotion.
Daltrey's voice is powerful, clean, and he holds notes better than ever before. In my opinion, his vocals in this recording are some of his best work. The guest artists all add their own magic to the music. Enough so that Elton John had a major hit w/ "Pinball Wizard" and he will forever be known as the same. Although less famous, Tina Turner, Eric Clapton, and Paul Nicholas also give wonderful performances. Apparently some of the other reviewers do not know that Ann-Margret was an accomplished singer long before this movie. Regardless of their comments, she gives great vocal performances in this movie soundtrack as well. Even Jack Nicholson holds his own in this recording. However, their comments w/r to Oliver Reed's singing are pretty much on the money.
There are three songs from the soundtrack that I have loved since I first heard them. They are, "Amazing Journey", "Sparks", and "Pinball Wizard". You cannot get any better than these for power and energy. With the windows up in your car (or conversely at home, use headphones), crank the stereo volume up with one of these on and you'll understand. My other favorites include, "1951/What About the Boy?", "Eyesight to the Blind" (not a Who composition, but an electrified, old, bluesy, rock song played masterfully by Clapton and the boys), "Champagne", "I'm Free", "I'm a Sensation", "Sally Simpson", "See Me, Feel Me", and "Listening to You".
The bottom line here is that if you liked The Who's work before the death of Moon and are not a Who purest, you might just like this recording a lot. After all, it is The Who's music, just remixed and jazzed up a bit by Townshend and the other artists. It is a helluva lot better than the milk-toast recording just put out by The "New" Who.
However, Tommy the Soundtrack was a bit of a dissappointment. There are a few minor discrepancies, like a strange error in Captain Walker, which sounds like the CD is skipping, and yet the timer proceeds as normal, and a few mixing problems in things like Eyesight to The Blind and Cousin Kevin.
But the most unforgivable crime on the whole album, and for this I am losing it two stars, is that for some reason some of the songs were cut short - Eyesight To The Blind and Acid Queen are the main offenders. I especially love the instrumental part in the middle of Acid Queen, and was disappointed to learn that it was gone. I don't see the reason for it, there was plenty of time on the CD - the two best songs on the album were ruined!
Keep the film after you buy this.
The remastered album is dreadful, _especially_ Prologue 1945: it's brash, noisy musical mayhem--it sounds like The Three Stooges tripping and falling their way through an orchestra pit/recording studio...and that's just the beginning. I'm so disappointed with the disc I just may stick in the microwave just to feel good about its self-destruction as it generates a miniature lightning storm and melts into a puddle of muddled musical goo.
Save yourself some money and disappointment: buy the DVD and rip it to .mp3 files, instead.
