The Who Tell 'Tommy' Tale
The Who's groundbreaking album "Tommy" is the subject of a DVD documentary which goes on sale next month via Eagle Rock, Classic Rock reports. View the trailers below.

"Sensation: the Story of Tommy" is an extended version of a film broadcast by the BBC last year, and features new interviews with Pete Townshend and Roger Daltrey plus archive footage of conversations with late bassist John Entwistle. Engineer Bob Pridden, artist Mike McInnerney and others offer insight into the making and impact of the 1969 concept album, which received a deluxe and super-deluxe re-release last year.

Speaking at the premiere in October 2013, vocalist Daltrey recalled: "The signs were there the first time we played it live - the audience reaction was extraordinary. It grew so quickly, which was kind of frightening. It grew from audiences of a thousand to a hundred thousand in about eighteen months. That was scary."

Guitarist Townshend added: "Through this album I've taken a journey that's allowed me to embrace all kinds of other forms. It's the only film score I've ever done - and having done it I decided never to go there again."

"Sensation: the Story of Tommy" is released on March 10. The Who are currently gearing up to make a new album, while Daltrey recently completed work on the blues record "Going Back Home" with Wilko Johnson.
