The Who - Tommy Two-Disc Vinyl Album

Tommy is the fourth album by English rock band The Who, released by Track Records and Polydor Records in the UK and Decca Records/MCA in the US. A double album telling a loose story about a "deaf, dumb and blind kid", Tommy was the first musical work to be billed overtly as a rock opera. Released in 1969, the album was mostly composed by Pete Townshend. In 1998, it was inducted into the Grammy Hall of Fame for "historical, artistic and significant value". It has sold over 20 million copies worldwide. In 2003, Rolling Stone magazine ranked Tommy number 96 on its list of the 500 greatest albums of all time. It was also ranked number 90 on VH1's 100 Greatest Albums of Rock & Roll and appeared in the book 1001 Albums You Must Hear Before You Die. Q ranked it 9th on their list of "The Music That Changed the World: Part One 1954–1969" in 2004.

This is a two-LP set with a booklet including lyrics and images to illustrate parts of the story. The cover is presented as part of a triptych-style fold-out cover. All three of the outer panels of the triptych are spanned by a single pop art painting by Mike McInnerney. The drawing is a sphere with diamond-shaped cutouts and an overlay of clouds and seagulls rendered with a figure-ground ambiguity. To one side a star-spangled hand bursts from the dark background, index finger pointing forward.
