If you are a Mod, or just love the Who's best album, this is worth the investment.
This is one of the nicest super deluxe box sets I've seen.
It's lavishly produced with extensive essays from Pete, although some input from Roger would've been nice.
Now there's been a lot of quips about not having the entire set in surround and that's a legitimate beef. It's a bit puzzling why only part of the album is available as such. That's not a big issue for me so I won't knock it as hard as others. My high point is the demo versions of the album. Nowadays, I play the demo set more than the regular release and this it what makes the set 5 stars. For some reason I've always liked the Who's demos, something I can't say about other bands. I highly recommend this 5 star set.
. I think sets like this reach for the hardcore fans so in a way the sets are immune to the down turn of the cd market. I'd love to see a massive box dedicated to Who's Next.
I want to review the super deluxe version.
The album 2011 remaster: Nice update, but not the reason that I upgraded.
Quadrophenia demo's: I have heard many demo's from this album before, but not the entire collection. It is interesting to hear the arrangements and tracks that didn't make the final album. The Who take Townshend's demo's to new heights based on the rule established during recording: Energetic Musical Rage
5.1 surround sound: So first of all this is not the complete album, wish it was. But this may be the only opportunity that we will hear Quad in surround sound. Bob Pridden did an excellent job with the surround and every song is amazing. As with many surround sound recordings, you hear elements/instruments with much more detail. The Real Me is dominated by Entwistle and Moon, the instrumental's (Quad & The Rock) have remarkable detail. The finale of Love Reign O'er Me is over the top.
If you appreciate surround sound music and Quad is one of your favorite Who albums, I would definitely consider the purchase.
Let's just hope they revisit Lifehouse in the near future.
The Quadrophenia box is a half-finished product, at best. For the same price as the Tull box, Quadrophenia is just lacking. Quadrophenia is a complete work of art and having only selected tracks in 5.1 seems so lazy. I want to hear Quadrophenia as a complete concept CD in 5.1, not what this box set offers.
I'm a big Who fan from way back and I saw them perform live several times with the original line-up of Moon, Daltry, Entwistle, and Townshend. I've bought all their LPs, cassettes, CDs over the years in many different remastered forms. I am not a big fan of Jethro Tull, but appreciate a lot of their music.)
The Quadrophenia box set turned out to be a big disappointment.
