TheWho_QuadroLiveInLondonIf you were hesitating to pick up the Quadrophenia – Live In London set, now might be the perfect time to re-evaluate your decision. This is especially true if you have desired the 5.1 Surround mix of Quadrophenia that was a disappointment last release.

The main thrust here was supposed to be the video playback of the Quadrophenia tour that The Who embarked on over 2012 and 2013 to celebrate the 40th Anniversary of the classic album.  This particular display involves the video of the show on July 8, 2013 at Wembley Stadium. What happened is that the word got out that the Box would contain a Blu-ray Audio disc of the ENTIRE Quadrophenia classic…in 5.1 Surround! If that didn’t get you to stand up and take notice, then absolutely nothing will move you in 2014.

Quadrophenia – Live In London, the chosen vehicle to carry this album (although there will be a stand-alone Blu-ray Audio set as well) will contain the full show at Wembley on BD, and DVD, and will also include (in the expansive Deluxe Metal Box edition), a 6″ Mod Headlight sticker, a booklet with liner notes and photos, a Mod Headlight button, the 2CD soundtrack of the concert, and, of course, the 5.1 Surround of the original Quadrophenia. All of this is contain in a 10″ round metal Mod Headlight container.

If you’re still resistant to the full package, then Quadrophenia – Live In London will also be available separately as a Blu-ray Disc, a DVD, and downloadable digital.

And then, of course, the stand-alone Blu-ray Audio release of the remixed 5.1 Surround version of Quadrophenia will be made available. (No Stereo???)

The 2CD soundtrack of the concert will also be made available by itself as well as DD.

  1. “the stand-alone Blu-ray Audio release of the remixed 5.1 Surround version of Quadrophenia”
    There’s my niche. That’s what I am interested in. SOLD!
    I can’t believe they are going to allow us to buy that independently of the rest of the package. It’s so contrary to how most other albums are released. They usually force you to buy everything if you want the 5.1 mix. Bravo!

      1. I’d bet the answer is, yes. It would be very contrary to all other 5.1 releases for there not to be a stereo mix.

  2. Unfortunately, Daltrey’s voice is toast. They should have stopped when Thunderfingers passed away.

    At this point, I would be more interested in a new PT (non-concept) solo album amp; tour.

  3. Agree with Bill on the first post, respectfully disagree with Bill on the second. I’ve seen this news on several websites and no one mentions a stereo mix. Hopefully he’s right – would like to have both.

    But, if I’m honest – the 5.1 mix makes my day!

    1. It seems ridiculous that there would be no Stereo mix. I personally have no interest in 5.1 surround (save for some obvious choice, and all movies). So, this time, (maybe), the Stereo fan gets the shaft.

  4. This is being released tomorrow on CD & Blu-Ray. But I’m not seeing a 5.1 mix of the original album as part of the Blu-Ray. Am I missing something?
