Quadrophenia by The Who

Got this for Christmas and all I can say is WOW! Great album. I would like to have a little more Roger singing though, Townshend sings too much! He's not bad, he's just not the singer!

Yeah Quadrophenia is a kick ass album man.I also recomend you look for "Who's next?" and "Who are you".If never hear "tommy" i think you should give it a try, this not one of my faivorites but is a classic album with some great tunes, and since you mentined you wanted more roger singing try listening to a who live recording called "the Who in the isle of wigh".

I own Who's Next, great too! And Tommy, actually my least favorite of the three. I've got their first record, Who sings My Generation, that's great, but not as mod as I thought. I prefer the Creation and The Sorrows and teh Action mod music to the Who's early stuff. But I don't own Who are You.

Wow, taste is everything--I still see Tommy as by far the best . . .

By far the 'Oo's best! Totalled my 1st car while knee-deep in side 3 oh those years ago. Heard this before "Tommy" & still kicks mucho buttocks. Heard they trashed the studio during the big finish, & to me, still exemplifies everything the band was about in regards to isolation, suffering & bombast. The cat's ass in my world.

And thus, this thread brings up a question I have often wondered about for some time. In the film, it represents the riots between the mods and the rockers as one of the most important events of London in the 60's. Is this an acurate view? Were the riots such a big deal? Were they indeed city-wide involving thousands of youth? Or did the film makers take artistic license, turning what was a few small skirmishes perhaps and blowing them out of proportion to make it the crux of the film? Anyone out there actually live through those times in London and perhaps have a first hand account? I was born in '65 in New York, so I have no way of knowing. Never even remember ever reading anything in history books about any class riots in London, and if they were indeed that big and important, I'm sure they would have made it into our history texts, just as I'm sure kids in England in the late 60's - 70's must have been learning about the race riots here in the U.S.

I don't know, never seen the flick, but it seems to me, having been a mod once in my life (yes, i decided to be a mod for the whole of last year, haircut and scooter and everything!) it seems to me it;s just cool to make a big deal out of something unimportant, like the rivalry.

Yes, Quadrophenia is a great concept album. I recall going to the big Quadrophenia tour back in '96. Don't recall much of the show but do remember it was huge.

As for the movie, I didn't care for it. Wasn't as great as "Tommy."
