Tommy was first released by The Who in 1969, an album they envisioned as a singular 'rock opera,' telling the story of a 'deaf, dumb and blind kid.' In 1975, it was adapted for the screen with a star-studded cast that included members of The Who, Ann-Margret, Oliver Reed, Eric Clapton, Tina Turner, Elton John, and Jack Nicholson. Pete Townshend oversaw the production of an entirely new Tommy album for the soundtrack, this time using synthesizers to create orchestral arrangements he had envisioned and taking advantage of the available musicians. On the final album, ‘There’s a Doctor’ was performed by Oliver Reed and Ann-Margret, ‘Amazing Journey’ by Pete Townshend, ‘Welcome’ by Roger Daltrey, Ann-Margret, and Oliver Reed, and ‘Cousin Kevin’ by Paul Nicholas.
