The Who Classic Gets Box Set Treatment

(Gibson) In a new blog post, Pete Townshend has revealed he is working on a new, deluxe reissue of The Who's Quadrophenia. The Who guitarist and songwriter hopes that the box set edition of the 1973 rock opera will be ready for a fall release.

"I am shut away in my home studio at the moment working to restore the demos of Quadrophenia," Townshend wrote, according to Rolling Stone. "Bob Pridden is doing surround-sound mixes of selected tracks. Jon Astley is remastering the original vinyl mix, and evaluating his own 1996 remix (the one where you can properly hear Roger's astonishing vocals). I am sitting in a pile of notes, desk diaries, photos (I took a lot of my own between 1971-1973 when Quadrophenia emerged), original lyrics and writing liner notes."

The rock legend said that he's having a good time working on the project and that fans are in for some surprises. "I am really enjoying this work. Bob's mixes are mind-blowing. My demos are among the best I've ever done, and include some real quirky tracks that didn't make it onto the final album," he said. "This package, due in October if all goes well, is another Live at Leeds and Hull or even another Lifehouse Chronicles in the making. You are going to love it. I hope so, because I am missing this summer sunshine to get it completed on time." more on this story
