The Who's rock opera "TOMMY" Has there ever been a notable "VINYL REISSUE" ??


The above title is my question: Has there ever been a notable that is, good VINYL  reissue  of THIS OUTSTANDING PIECE OF MUSIC.  I have seen CD's of it, but just Red Book standard level, or even re-mastered versions, but not on vinyl.


Thank you,

S.J.

Is there anything wrong with the original vinyl issue in SQ?

Of course the problem would be to find one in NM condition I suppose.
This one.

It's a 1973 MCA reissue. It might be hiding in the bin of your local store? I have a 1969 US Decca, that sounds great, but spotty. I have this later reissue, and it sounds quite good.

I bet there are a few R-R owners still enjoying their 1969 copy.

I can imagine a "modern" reissue plagued by the usual stuff-punched up bass, overall "CD" tone.
I had not even checked my copy but it is that one tablejockey.

Sounds pretty good to my ears.

I also have an excellent version by The London Symphony Orchestra from 1972.

If the my record stores ever open up again, I'm going to look for that 
London Symphony LP. Thanks!

I can only go to the Goodwill stores. Johnny Mathis and Andy Williams album stampers-a-plenty!
You’ve made me break out my bought-the-first-week-it-came-out domestic pressing. Yeah, it had a lot of use back in the day, but it doesn’t seem any worse for wear. A lot of multi-miking and no shortage of artificial reverb, but clarity galore and just enough treble edge to lend it a genuine rock record veracity.  Spacious soundstaging.  Only the thoroughly worn jacket tips off how old it is. Thanks for getting me to haul it out!
Fremer recommended a digital copy years ago.

My only copy is a Simply Vinyl. The last time I listened, I liked it. ( years ago )
As long as its played loud it should be ok.
Tablejockey.
I have never seen that London Symphony Orchestra copy for sale anywhere.

I found it in a deserted antique mall in southern Wisconsin one weekend while working there, $10 if I remember correctly.
"I have never seen that London Symphony Orchestra copy for sale anywhere."

I have one of those independent  neighborhood stores(boarded up until who knows when) that something like that just magically shows up. Guess it will just be one of those finds when I'm not expecting.

Discogs lists it also being released in the infamous "Quadraphonic" sound! 
The SACD sounds really good. 
The 96.0kHz/24bit files sound good also

Thank you to all who have responded.  It has been enlightening and useful.  I am aware of the Discogs site and probably will check it out again. .

I have a copy of  "Tommy"  and it sounds good, but in anticipation of buying a better table and cartridge, I thought I would post this thread. I am not sure how old my copy is. The cover is in good shape; but, side four is marred by pops and clicks, no matter how much I clean it

May have to consider the SACD version recommended by member

Funny I sold my copy of Tommy with the London Symphony Orchestra when I sold off my collection. 6 years ago.Mint condition .Oh well.
