(Gibson) Everyone has their favorites, and when it comes to Who albums, Pete Townshend's is Quadrophenia. "I'm very proud of it," he said at the media launch of the director's cut reissue of Quadrophenia this week (via Music Radar). "It's the only Who album I produced on my own. I'm amazed by what we managed to achieve with an eight-track studio. I had complete control and it proved that when I have complete control I get it right."

Townshend went on to say that The Who, "only made three landmark records: Tommy, Who's Next and Quadrophenia."

"I've always felt that Quadrophenia was the last definitive Who album," he added. "I've always regarded it as a very ambitious album, but what got away was the story… But to me, it felt to me like it was the end. The reason I've spent so much time working on this new edition is because it's an epochal record, the last great album by The Who." more on this story
