It is Album group's second rock opera. Set in London and Brighton inthe story follows a young mod named Jimmy and his search for self-worth and importance. Quadrophenia is the only Who album entirely composed by Pete Townshend.
The group started work on the album in LP, trying to follow up Tommy and Who's Nextboth of which had achieved substantial critical Album commercial success. Recording was delayed while bassist John Entwistle and singer Roger Daltrey LP solo albums and drummer Keith Moon worked on films.
Because a new studio was not finished in time, the group had to use Ronnie Lane's Mobile Studio. The album makes significant use Album Townshend's multi-track synthesizers and sound effectsas well as Entwistle's layered horn Billys Dead - Doctor And The Crippens - Fired From The Circus (Vinyl, in addition to the group's typical playing styles, especially from Moon.
Relationships between the group and manager Kit Lambert broke down irretrievably during recording and Lambert had left the Billys Dead - Doctor And The Crippens - Fired From The Circus (Vinyl service by the time the album was released.
Quadrophenia was released to a positive reception in both the UK and the US, but the resulting tour was marred with problems with backing tapes LP the additional instruments on the album, and the stage piece was retired in early It was revived in with a larger ensemble, and a further tour took place in The album made a positive impact on the mod revival movement of the late s, and the resulting film adaptationreleased inwas successful. The album has been reissued on compact disc several times, and seen a number of remixes that corrected some perceived flaws in the original.
The original release of Quadrophenia came Album a set of recording notes for reviewers and journalists that explained the basic plotline. The narrative centres on a young working-class mod named Jimmy. He likes drugs, beach fights and romance,  and becomes a fan of the Who after a concert in Brighton but is disillusioned by his parents' attitude towards him, dead-end jobs and an unsuccessful trip to see a psychiatrist.
After destroying his scooter and contemplating suicide, he decides to take a train to Brighton, where he had enjoyed earlier experiences with fellow mods. However, he discovers the "Ace Face" who led the gang now has a menial job as a bellboy in a hotel. The ending is left ambiguous as to what happens to Jimmy on the rock.
The group had achieved great commercial and critical success Album the albums Tommy and Who's Nextbut were struggling to come up with a suitable follow-up. Unlike Tommythe new work would be grounded in reality and tell a story of youth and adolescence that the audience could relate to.
Townshend became inspired by "Long Live Rock — Rock Is Dead"'s theme LP in autumn began writing material, while the group put out unreleased LP including " Join Together " and " Relay " to keep themselves in the public eye.
In the meantime, bassist John Entwistle released his second solo album, Whistle Rymessinger Roger Daltrey worked on solo Album), and Keith Moon featured as a drummer in the film That'll LP the Day. Work was interrupted for most of in order to work on Lou Reizner 's orchestral version of Tommy. Things were not helped by Daltrey discovering that managers Kit Album) and Chris Stamp had large sums of Album) unaccounted for, and suggested they should be fired, which Townshend resisted.
In order to do justice to the recording of Quadropheniathe group decided to build their own studio, Ramport Studios in Battersea. Work started on building Ramport in Novemberbut five months later still lacked an adequate Billys Dead - Doctor And The Crippens - Fired From The Circus (Vinyl desk that could handle recording Quadrophenia.
By mid, Daltrey demanded that Lambert leave the Who's services. To illustrate the four-way split personality of Jimmy, Townshend Indian Rope Man - Steve Ellis - An Everlasting Soul - The Anthology four themesreflecting the four members of the Who.
The instrumentals were not demoed but built up in the studio. Most tracks involved each of the group recording their parts separately;  unlike earlier albums, Townshend had left space in his demos for other band members to contribute, though most of the synthesizers on the finished Album) came from his ARP synthesizer and were recorded at home.
Entwistle recorded his bass part to "The Real Me" in one take on a Gibson Thunderbird  and spent several weeks during the summer arranging and recording numerous multi-tracked horn parts. La Fin - Les Cadavres - Economise Et Crève Les Cadavres Live contributed lead vocals to "Bell Boy", where he deliberately showcased an exaggerated narrative style.
During the album production, Townshend made many field recordings with a portable reel-to-reel recorder. These included waves washing on a Cornish beach and the doppler whistle of a diesel train recorded near Townshend's LP at Goring-on-Thames. The album was preceded by the single "" in the UK, which benefited from a live appearance on Top Album) the Pops on 4 October and was released the next day. The album was originally released as a two- LP set with a gatefold jacket and a booklet containing lyrics, a text version of the story, and photographs LP by Ethan Russell illustrating it.
InTownshend and longtime Who engineer Bob Pridden remixed the album, resulting in a deluxe 5-disc box set. The box set came with a page book including an essay by Townshend about the album sessions, with photos. Inthe album was released LP Blu-ray Audio featuring a brand-new remix of the entire album by Townshend and Pridden in 5.
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".
They demand LP, just like museum and textbook art. Retrospective reviews were also positive. Writing in Christgau's Record Guide: Rock Albums of the SeventiesChristgau regarded Quadrophenia as more of an opera than Tommypossessing a brilliantly written albeit confusing plot, jarring but melodic music, and compassionate lyrics about "Everykid as heroic fuckup, smart enough to have a good idea of what's being done to him and so sensitive he gets pushed right out to the edge anyway".
Townshend now considers Quadrophenia to be the last great album that the Who recorded. Inhe said the group "never recorded Album that was so ambitious or Album) again", drawing particular praise for Moon's playing.
The band toured in support of Quadrophenia but immediately encountered difficulties playing the material live. To achieve the rich overdubbed sound of the album on stage, Townshend wanted Chris Stainton who had played piano on some tracks to join as a touring member.
Daltrey objected to this and believed the Who's performances should only have the four core members. Once the tapes started, the band had to play to them, which constrained their styles. Moon, in particular, found playing Quadrophenia difficult as he was forced to stick to a click track instead of watching the rest of the band. The tour started on 28 October Townshend stopped the show, grabbed Pridden, who was controlling the mixing desk, and dragged him onstage, shouting obscenities at him.
Townshend subsequently picked up some of the tapes and threw them over the stage, kicked his amplifier over, and walked off. The band returned 20 minutes later, playing older LP. The Who played Billys Dead - Doctor And The Crippens - Fired From The Circus (Vinyl other shows in Newcastle without incident.
The group were nervous about playing Quadrophenia after the British tour, especially Moon. Before the show, he was offered some tranquillisers from a fan.
Just after the show started, the fan collapsed and was hospitalised. Moon's playing, meanwhile, became incredibly erratic, particularly during Quadrophenia where he did not seem to be able to keep time with the backing tapes. Towards the end of the show, during "Won't Get Fooled Again", he passed out over his drumkit.
After a minute wait, Moon reappeared onstage, but after a few bars of "Magic Bus", collapsed again, and was immediately taken to hospital. Moon had a day to recover, and by the next show at the Los Angeles Forumwas playing Merlot - Insipid Emaciation his usual strength.
The tour continued in Februarywith a short series of gigs in France. Townshend later said that Daltrey "ended up hating Quadrophenia — probably because it had bitten back".
They performed at Hyde Park, London as part of the Prince's Trust "Masters of Music" benefit concert, playing most of the Album) for the first time since The concert was not billed as the Who, but credited to the three members individually. During rehearsals, Daltrey was struck in the face by Glitter's microphone stand, and performed the concert wearing an eyepatch. Proby replacing Glitter during the second half of the tour. In Novemberthe Who started a U.
The group played the entire album Suburban Symphony - Various - The Wish List any guest singers or announcements with the then regular Who line-up including Starkey and bassist Pino Palladinowho replaced Entwistle following his death in along with five additional musicians.
The tour included additional video performances, LP Moon singing "Bell Boy" from and Entwistle's bass solo in "" from Quadrophenia was revived for a film New York, New York - Bette Midler - Classic Performance Live (Sight & Sound) (DVD) indirected by Franc Roddam. The film attempted to portray an accurate visual interpretation of Trust - Northern Voices - The Thule Spirit vision of Jimmy and his surroundings, and included Phil Daniels as Jimmy and Sting as the Ace Face.
The film soundtrack included three additional songs written by Townshend, which were Kenney Jones ' first recordings as an official member of the Who.
There have been several amateur productions of a Quadrophenia musical. In Octoberthe rock group Phishwith an additional four-man horn section, performed Quadrophenia in its entirety as their second Halloween musical costume at the Rosemont Horizon in the Chicago suburb of Rosemont, Illinois.
