The Who to release The Story Of Tommy

The Who will release “Sensation: The Story Of Tommy” on DVD, Blu-ray, and digital formats on March 11th.

The project explores the background, creation, and impact of The Who’s landmark 1969 album. Through brand new interviews, the film unveils the history and cultural impact of Tommy through new interviews with Pete Townshend and Roger Daltrey, archive interviews with the late John Entwistle, contributions from engineer Bob Pridden, artwork creator Mike McInnerney, plus others involved in the making of the album, as well as journalists who assess the album’s historic and cultural impact.

Originally aired on BBC TV in August 2013, this version includes additional material not featured in the TV broadcast, as well as a bonus 33-minute feature from the 1969 German TV show Beat Club. This feature, which includes previously unreleased footage, includes tracks from the album and interviews with band members.

“Sensation: The Story Of Tommy” can be pre-ordered via the Amazon links below.
