Deal alert / The Who: Tommy box

The Who‘s Tommy super deluxe edition box set was released almost exactly a year ago and it is highly recommended thanks to the inclusion of 20 Pete Townshend demos, a high res 5.1 blu-ray audio and ‘live bootleg’ performance of the album from October 1969. In addition you get an 80-page hardcover book with a 20,000 word essay from Richard Barnes. This has averaged around £70 over the last 12 months but you can now pick it up for much less than that.
