    I love 'Sparks'. I love the clips from 'Woodstock' where they are playing selections from that album.

    Excellent
    I remember seeing an interview with Roger Daltrey and he talked about how he asked Pete if he could be Tommy

    Pretty amazing work. I had the movie soundtrack LP, probably wore it out. No surprise, with Pinball Wizard one of the tracks. I greatly prefer the movie version of the tune.

    Yeah, and we listened to it and were probably forced to sing along with a couple songs in my junior high school music class.

    It was a full class of about 30 boys and girls. We also sang Come Together from the newly released Abbey Road. The "shu" that's sort of whispered several times at the beginning was sung loudly and pronounced like the word for excrement, to the teacher's dismay.
