Quadrophenia on BBC America

If you receive BBC America on your tele and nothing to do, you might wish to tune in. They are showing a documentary on the making of the Who album; Quadrophenia.

So far, it's pretty damn awesome.

Thought I'd share the news.

Best,

FAX

My favorite Who album. One of my favorite albums of all time.

Just listened to the entire thing after the documentary. Wow.

I'd forgotten how good that deal was. The doc was interesting. I learned a lot I never knew about the process.

But you're right. It's one whale of a recording. Daltrey's best screams evah.

And created back in the pre-computer days. Not bad.

Was this the same production shown on VH1 a few years back? If so, it's an interesting doc, especially in regards to the failed Life House project that morphed into Quadraphenia.

In that doc, they shared the demo stage of the tracks with Pete performing all the instruments and vocals. He was obviously the driving force behind the band, but The Who wasn't The Who without the talents of Moon, Entwistle and Daltrey.

Hmmm ... I don't know (having never seen the VH1 version). This was listed as "NEW" on the BBCA schedule, though. Normally, that means it's never been broadcast before ... although I suppose it could mean it's new to the BBCA.

They did mention the Lifehouse project, but I don't recall them saying that it was the seedling for Quadrophenia ... only that it was a failure.

And (unless I missed it) they only mentioned the original demo tracks Townshend created.

The Who was a damn unusual combination of people, that's certain ... it was a little odd that it all worked was well as it did. In this particular documentary, they emphasized the fact that Townshend wasn't much of a fan of Moon's drumming, for example ... a viewpoint which Daltrey found offensive.

Even though some of the bands felt (probably rightly) they needed a "gimmick", those were the days when music still had a raw, spontaneous edge that I miss. There was something in those early performances that is hard to replicate.

I just checked and this particular documentary debuted on July 24, 2012 and I definitely want to see it.

After a quick IMDB search, the film I referred to is "Amazing Journey: The Story of The Who (2007 documentary)". It's a two disc DVD set and I highly recommend it.

I've heard of that ... may have even seen part of it at one point, but I'll definitely look into it again.

Thanks.
