Pete Townsend’s 1969 rock opera turned stage show Tommy, is a whirlwind rock ‘n’ roll stage extravaganza! It tells the story of a young boy who is struck dumb, blind and mute upon witnessing a traumatic event. His mother and father struggle to find a cure for him, but he is abused by others around him, until one of his tormentors unwittingly introduces him to pinball. Tommy discovers this is his hidden talent, cures himself and gains both fame and fortune.
This volume contains the songs from Pete Townshend's hit musical, with all twenty-three numbers arranged for Piano, Voice and Guitar, with complete lyrics. With rocking songs such as Pinball Wizard, I’m Free and Acid Queen this is a unique dynamic, pounding show that reflects both Townshend’s compositional ability and broad artistic sentiments.
