Colored 180g Vinyl Pressing Remastered at Abbey Road with Half-Speed Mastering Process
As a leading icon of the British music revolution of the 1960s, Pete Townshend made his name by creating the power chord, smashing guitars onstage, and penning anthems of teenage rebellion like "My Generation." However, towards the end of the '60s Pete became a follower of the Indian avatar Meher Baba which inspired him to release a handful of devotional albums and a series of non-Who related solo records throughout the '70s, 80s and early-90s. 1993's Psychoderelict finds Townshend back in his rock opera wheelhouse with a complex conceptual effort about a rather close to home aging rock star. In addition to standout rockers like "English Boy" and "Let's Get Pretentious," the proceedings feature three instrumental tributes to Townshend's spiritual mentor, Meher Baba, which incorporate the famous synth loop from the Who's "Baba O'Riley."
