Eagle Rock Entertainment are proud to announce the release on 10 March 2014 of “Sensation – The Story Of Tommy” from The Who on DVD, Blu-ray and Digital Formats.
This new film explores the background, creation and impact of “Tommy” through new interviews with Pete Townshend and Roger Daltrey, archive interviews with the late John Entwistle, and contributions from engineer Bob Pridden, artwork creator Mike McInnerney plus others involved in the creation of the album and journalists who assess the album’s historic and cultural impact.
Initially shown on BBC TV in autumn 201, this is an extended version containing much not featured in the broadcast, and is fully endorsed by the band.
The Who’s seminal double album “Tommy”, released in 1969, is a milestone in rock history. It revitalised the band’s career and established Pete Townshend as a composer and Roger Daltrey as one of rock’s foremost frontmen. The first album to be overtly billed as a “rock opera”, “Tommy” has gone on to sell over 20 million copies around the world and has been reimagined as both a film by Ken Russell in the mid-seventies and a touring stage production in the early nineties. As well as the main title, we include an amazing bonus, a 33 minute feature from the German TV show Beat Club from 1969 featuring tracks from the album and aninterview with Pete Townshend.
