The Who are playing in concert near me and I was not even thinking of going until I got a call from a pal who said he had a deuce, at half price. The concert is billed as Qaudrophenia and Other Hits. So here is my copy of Quardopenia. The cover looks to have had a corner chewed off. But the rest of it is in good shape. It likely came from a fifty cent bin. 5:15 is one of my all-time favorite songs.
From wiki, we learn that "Quadrophenia is the 6th studio album by English rock band The Who. Released in October 1973 by Track and Polydor records in the United Kingdom, and Track and MCA in the US, it is a double album, and the group's second rock opera. The story laid out involves social, musical, and psychological happenings from an English teenage perspective, set in London and Brighton in 1965. The name is a variation on the popular usage of the medical diagnostic term schizophrenia as dissociative identity disorder, to reflect the four distinct personalities of Jimmy, the opera's protagonist – each said to represent the personality of one member of The Who. At the same time, the title is a play on the term quadraphonic sound, then a recent invention. Composer Pete Townshend has said: "The whole conception of Quadrophenia was geared to quadraphonic, but in a creative sort of way. I mean I wanted themes to sort of emerge from corners. So you start to get the sense of the fourness being literally speaker for speaker." I have 4 pairs of speakers in the Record Emporium - so not sure how this will sound since I have never played this record.
