Description


Vintage “copy of master mix” 10″ tape reel of ‘Overture’ from the Who’s 1975 Tommy soundtrack. Affixed to the box is a large Air Recording Studios label, dated January 6, 1975, and hand-notated with relevant information and technical data, including: “Artist: The Who, Speed: 15 IPS, Dolby: No.” A single track is listed simply as ‘Overture.’ In 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. Learn more about Ron Nevison.
