Single-sided 10″ acetate of The Who’s song ‘Overture’ from the 1975 soundtrack for Tommy. Identified in type on The Mastering Lab label with the album and song title listed. In very fine condition. Although a version of ‘Overture’ was recorded for the film, it did not make it onto the soundtrack—an entirely new song, ‘Prologue – 1945,’ replaced it as the opening song. This version of ‘Overture,’ a solo track with Pete Townshend playing all the instruments, was released solely as a single. Originates from the personal collection of legendary engineer and producer Ron Nevison. RR Auction COA.
