Things were not helped by Daltrey discovering that managers Kit Lambert and Chris Stamp had large sums of money unaccounted for, and suggested they should be fired, which Townshend resisted.

In order to do justice to the recording of Quadropheniathe group decided to build their own studio, Ramport Studios in Battersea. Work started on building Ramport in Novemberbut five months later it still lacked an adequate mixing desk that could handle recording Quadrophenia. By mid, Daltrey demanded that Lambert leave the Who's services. To illustrate the four-way split personality of Jimmy, Townshend wrote four themes Cut My Hair - The Who - Quadrophenia In 1996 (CD), reflecting the four members of the Who.

The instrumentals were not demoed but built up in the studio. Most tracks involved each of the group recording their parts separately; [19] unlike earlier albums, Townshend had left space in his demos for other band members to contribute, though most of the synthesizers on the finished album came from his ARP synthesizer and were recorded at home. Entwistle recorded his bass part to "The Real Me" in one take on a Gibson Thunderbird [25] and spent several weeks during the summer arranging and recording numerous multi-tracked horn parts.

He contributed lead vocals to "Bell Boy", where he deliberately showcased an exaggerated narrative style. During the album production, Townshend made many field recordings with a portable reel-to-reel recorder. These included waves washing on a Cornish beach and the doppler whistle of a diesel train recorded near Townshend's house at Goring-on-Thames. The album was preceded by the single "" in the UK, which benefited from a live appearance on Top of the Pops on 4 October Cut My Hair - The Who - Quadrophenia In 1996 (CD) was released the next day.

The album was originally released as a two- LP set with a gatefold jacket and a booklet containing lyrics, a text version of the story, Cut My Hair - The Who - Quadrophenia In 1996 (CD) photographs taken by Ethan Russell illustrating it. InTownshend and longtime Who engineer Bob Pridden remixed the album, resulting in a deluxe five-disc box set.

The box set came with a page book including an essay by Townshend about the album sessions, with photos. Inthe album was released on Blu-ray Audio featuring a brand-new remix of the entire album by Townshend and Pridden in 5. Critical reaction to Quadrophenia was positive. Melody Maker ' s Chris Welch wrote "rarely have a group succeeded in distilling their essence and embracing a motif as convincingly", while Charles Shaar Murray described the album in New Musical Express as the "most rewarding musical experience of the year".

They demand concentration, just like museum and textbook art. Retrospective reviews were also positive. Writing in Christgau's Record Guide: Rock Albums of the SeventiesChristgau regarded Quadrophenia as more of an opera than Tommypossessing a brilliantly written albeit confusing plot, jarring but melodic music, and compassionate lyrics about "Everykid as heroic fuckup, smart enough to have a good idea of what's being done to him and so sensitive he gets pushed right out to the edge anyway".

Townshend now considers Quadrophenia to be the last great album that the Who recorded. Inhe said the group "never recorded anything that was so ambitious or audacious again", and implied that it was the last album to feature good playing by Keith Moon. The band toured in support of Quadrophenia but immediately encountered difficulties playing the material live. To achieve the rich overdubbed sound of the album on stage, Townshend wanted Chris Stainton who had played piano on some tracks to join as a touring member.

Daltrey objected to this and believed the Who's performances should only have the four core members. Once the tapes started, the band had to play to them, which constrained their styles.

Moon, in particular, found playing Quadrophenia difficult as he was forced to stick to a click track instead of watching the rest of the band. The tour started on 28 October Townshend stopped the show, grabbed Pridden, who was controlling the mixing desk, and dragged him onstage, shouting obscenities at him.

Townshend subsequently picked up some of the tapes and threw them over the stage, kicked his amplifier over, and walked off. The band returned 20 minutes later, playing older material.

The Who played two other shows in Newcastle without incident. The group were Cut My Hair - The Who - Quadrophenia In 1996 (CD) about playing Quadrophenia after the British tour, especially Moon.

Before the show, he was offered some tranquillisers from a fan. Just after the show started, the fan collapsed and was hospitalised. Moon's playing, meanwhile, became incredibly erratic, particularly during Quadrophenia where he did not seem to be able to keep time with the backing tapes.

Towards the end of the show, during "Won't Get Fooled Again", he passed out over his drumkit. After a minute wait, Moon reappeared onstage, but after a few bars of "Magic Bus", collapsed again, and was immediately taken to hospital. Moon had a day to recover, and by the next show at the Los Angeles Forumwas playing at his usual strength.

The tour continued in Februarywith a short series of gigs in France. Townshend later said that Daltrey "ended up hating Quadrophenia — probably because it had bitten back". They performed at Hyde Park, London as part of the Prince's Trust "Masters of Music" benefit concert, playing most of the album for the first time since The concert was not billed as the Who, but credited to the three members individually.

During rehearsals, Daltrey was struck in the face by Glitter's microphone stand, and performed the concert wearing an eyepatch. Proby replacing Glitter during the second half of the tour. In Novemberthe Who started a U. The group played the entire album without any guest singers or announcements with the then regular Who line-up including Starkey and bassist Pino Palladinowho replaced Entwistle following his death in along Cut My Hair - The Who - Quadrophenia In 1996 (CD) five additional musicians.
