British Army Captain Walker goes missing during an expedition and is believed dead "Overture".
His wife, Mrs. Walker, gives birth to their son, Tommy "It's a Boy". Years later, Captain Walker returns home and discovers that his wife has found a new lover. The Captain kills the lover in an altercation. Tommy's mother brainwashes him into believing he didn't see or hear anything, shutting down his senses and making him deaf, dumb and blind to the outside world "". A quack claims his wife can cure Tommy " The Hawker "while Tommy's parents are increasingly frustrated that he will never find religion in the midst of his isolation "Christmas".
They begin to neglect him, leaving him to be tortured by his sadistic "Cousin Kevin" and molested by his uncle Ernie "Fiddle About". As Tommy grows older, he discovers that he can feel vibrations sufficiently well to become an expert pinball player " Pinball Wizard ".
His parents take him to a respected doctor "There's a Doctor"who determines that the boy's disabilities are psychosomatic rather than physical.
Tommy is told by the Doctor to " Go to the Mirror! After seeing Tommy spend extended periods staring at a mirror in the house, his mother smashes it out of frustration "Smash the Mirror". This removes Tommy's mental blockand he recovers his senses, realising he can become a powerful leader "Sensation". Tommy retreats inward again " See Me, Feel Me " with his 77 - Maximum Rock N Roll (CD statement of wonder at that which encompasses him".
Townshend had been looking at ways of progressing beyond the standard three-minute pop single format since The first use of the term was applied to a suite called "Quads", Album) in a future where parents could choose the sex of their children.
A couple want four girls but instead receive three girls and a boy, raising him as a girl anyway. The opera was abandoned after writing a single song, the hit single, " I'm a Boy ". Townshend initially objected, but eventually agreed to do so, coming up with " A Quick One, While He's Away ", which joined short pieces of music together into a continuous narrative.
But what it's really all about is the fact that That's really what we want to do: create this feeling that when you listen to the music you can actually become aware of the boy, and aware of what he is all about, because we are creating him as we play.
Pete Townshend talking to Jann WennerAugust . ByTownshend was unsure about how the Who should progress musically.
The group were no longer teenagers, but he wanted their music to remain relevant. Townshend and Kit Lambert realised they needed a larger vehicle for their music than hit singles and a new stage show, and Townshend hoped to incorporate his love of Meher Baba into this concept. He also wanted the material performed in concert, to counter the trend of bands like the Beatles and the Beach Boys producing studio output that was not designed for live performance.
In Augustin an interview to Rolling StoneTownshend talked about a new rock opera, which had the working title of Deaf, Dumb and Blind Boyand described the entire plot in great detail, which ran to 11 pages.
Townshend eventually settled on Tommy because it was a common British name, and a nickname for soldiers in the First World War. Sessions were block-booked from 2pm — 10pm, but recording often spilled over into the early morning. The album was recorded using an eight-track systemwhich allowed various instruments to be overdubbed.
Townshend used several guitars in the studio, but made particular use of the Gibson J acoustic and the Gibson SG. Keith Moon used a new double bass drum kit owned by roadie Tony Haslam, after Premier had refused to loan him any more equipment due to the items repeatedly being abused. Singer Roger Daltrey later said that Townshend often came in with a half-finished demo recordingadding "we probably did as much talking as we did recording, sorting out arrangements and things.
Moon got the songwriting credit for suggesting the idea, though the music was composed and played by Townshend. Moon later said, "It was, at the time, very un-Wholike. A lot of the songs were soft. We never played like that. Some of the material had already been written for other projects. A cover of Mercy Dee Walton 's "One Room Country Shack" was also recorded but was scrapped from the final track listing as Townshend could not figure out a way to incorporate it in the plot.
Recording at IBC was slow, due to a lack of a full plot and a full selection of songs. The group hoped that the album would be ready by Christmas, but Album) dragged on. Melody Maker ' s Chris Welch visited IBC studios in November and while he was impressed with the working environment and the material,  the project still did not have a title and there was no coherent plotline.
The Who took a break from recording at the end of to tour, including a well received appearance at The Rolling Stones Rock and Roll Circus on 10 December. By Marchsome songs had been recorded several times, yet Townshend still thought there were missing pieces.
The album was commercially successful, reaching No. It peaked at No. An EP of selections from the album was planned to be released in the UK in Novemberbut was withdrawn. When it was released, critics were split between those who thought the album was a masterpiece, the beginnings of a new genre, and those that felt it was exploitative.
Unfortunately, because it fundamentally dealt with the abstract concept of Meher Baba 's spiritual precepts, the interviews often gave confusing and contradictory details. For Melody MakerChris Welch went to the album's press launch show at Ronnie Scott's and although the volume left his ears ringing for 20 hours, he concluded "we wanted more.
