    I wouldn't expect much in the way of a hi-res Quadrophenia release. Townshend's dissatisfaction with the recordings and releases of the album throughout the years is legendary--with the exception of the Mobile Fidelity Sound Lab release. (Which I, of course, have.)

    It's nice to see Townshend's superb catalog being remastered. I will gladly repurchase them.

    so the rumors from a couple years ago of hires quadrophenia album were likely all false? is the mfsl release that much better than other releases? i'll pay top dollar for the best quality of quadrophenia, as long as it is top quality too.

    I'm with you Christ, I flew to London to see Quadrophenia played in Hyde Park when he brought it back. Couldn't find tickets for the life of me but a good friend of mine called up Pete and got me a pair.
    I had a grin for a week after I got to go in office in Twickenham and pick up the tickets.....the only bad thing he was gone at the time.

    Funny to see My Generation as the only HiRez besides Tommy.
    Both Quadrophenia & Who's Next lends themselves to Multi Channel Hi Rez discs.
    You'd think that Quads sound problems could be resolved in 6 channel remix which would make Pete happy as a clam.

    i dont keep up much on the hires talks, so i wasnt even sure a quadrophenia release hadnt come out. the only two hires discs are the sacds of tommy and dark side of the moon. i dont have a hires player yet, but if quadrophenia had come out and i didnt know it, i'd have to get a player soon, there's no way i'd have tommy and quadrophenia hires versions without a player. i know pete is picky, but cmon! we neeeeeed it!

    I'd rather a Quad set than Tommy. Tommy has just been done to death, for me at least, and My Generation doesn't really lend itself to the format. Does it have the missing guitar solo absent on the "Legacy" release? Is it does, I might be tempted to pick it up.

    My Baby Gives It Away

    Ronnie Lane would object to this being called a "Townshend solo".

    That is, he would object if he was still alive.

    Which version of Slit Skirts? The album (bleh) or MTV version (yeah!)?

    I've been trying to find a decent copy of the MTV version for 20 years. All I have is this crappy copy of a VHS tape.
