Item 592 - The Who: Quadrophenia Catalog 415 (Sep 2013)

(we are no longer accepting bids on this item)
Minimum Bid: $200.00
Sold Price: $1,804.80 (includes buyer's premium)


Two MCA Records double-sided 12″ acetates of The Who’s renowned 1973 album Quadrophenia, each disc featuring two different sides of the final classic release. Both are identified in type on The Mastering Lab labels with relevant track listings and artist info. First disc is in fine to very fine condition; second has a small white mark on side three and thin white streak to side four, otherwise fine condition. Both accompanied by their original sleeves from The Mastering Lab, respectively labeled in an unknown hand, “Quadrophenia 1 & 2 Oct. 73” and “Quadrophenia 3 & 4 Oct. 73.” Originates from the personal collection of legendary engineer and producer Ron Nevison.

The album was exceptionally complex in both concept and production—designed as a double-LP rock opera that traced the four personalities of a single character, Quadrophenia incorporated impromptu recordings of waves on a beach, a diesel train, and brass band, and utilized synthesizers for even more sound effects. In an interview, Pete Townshend said of the project, ‘The music is the best music that I've ever written, I think, and it's the best album that I will ever write.’ These acetates represent the closest possible reproduction of the historic album as it was intended to be heard by its creators, making them exceptionally desirable to collectors and audiophiles alike. RR Auction COA.
