Petra Haden Petra Haden Sings: The Who Sell Out on LP + Download
Appearing on Vinyl for the First Time!
On Petra Haden: Sings The Who Sell Out, the celebrated violinist/singer re-imagines all of The Who's singing and instrumental parts on their 1967 classic album – including drums – and tackles all the interstitial mock radio commercials that are so integral to the original experience. The final result is a technical tour de force that also invites a fuller appreciation of The Who's own singular achievement, bringing to the fore all the original elements of chorale music, vaudevillian schmaltz and Renaissance chamber ensemble playing. Pete Townshend even proclaimed: "I was a little embarrassed to realize I was enjoying my own music so much, for in a way it was like hearing it for the first time... I love this."
