Pete Townshend Announces Deluxe 'Quadrophenia' and Autobiography Update!

Yesterday Pete Townshend announced plans to release a deluxe edition of The Who's 1973 double album Quadrophenia before the end of the year. The set will include a remastered version of the original mix, a possible revised version of Jon Astley's 1996 mix, and selected tracks presented in surround sound mixes. Pete also promises some of the wonderful demos he created for the album, which will include songs that didn't make the final cut. New liner notes from the composer will round out what will likely be the last word on The Who's greatest rock opera (You heard me, Tommy!).

Hop over to The Second Disc to read Townshend's complete statement on this upcoming release.

In other Townshend news, the most recent issue of Rolling Stone reveals a 2012 publication date for his long awaited autobiography.
