In your mind my birthday is every day, so by now you owe me 19,000 presents!

I love this album!!  Not quite Quadrophenia, but a masterpiece all the same.  I never get tired of hearing songs from Tommy.

50 years. Wow.

I have a 1st pressing signed for me by Pete and John in the late 80's.  Hard to believe that record is that old.

Gonna' play me some Pinball Wizard today.

"But Tommy doesn't know what day it is..." :(



Keith Moon does a great job on this one. Ditto "Sparks" :yes:

Some of my absolute favorites from Tommy

The whole opening sequence through Sparks

What a grand way to kick things off! And those backwards guitar effects in The Amazing Journey!

Christmas

My favorite "Christmas song?" Probably.

Cousin Kevin!!!!!

Deeply disturbing! :D

The Acid Queen

Another killer deep cut!

Underture

I bet you Alex adores this.

Fiddle About

Quite illustrative.

Pinball Wizard

Still exciting, after about the hundredth time....I don't know how!

Sally Simpson

Poor girl, great song.

I'm Free

How strange, I love it!

We're Not Gonna Take It

A killer closer! Dramatic!

Brilliant.

Fun fact:

The original double album was configured with sides 1 and 4 on one disc, and sides 2 and 3 on the other, to accommodate turntables.

This wasn't 50 years ago, but on June 1, 1967, we heard this for the first time:
