Episode 12: A solo take on “Tommy (OST)” by The Who

On this edition of “Side Tracks with Rusty Pate,” I talk about “Tommy” by The Who. Rather than focusing on the 1969 album version, I look at the 1975 soundtrack for the Ken Russell film.

I talk about the strange and disjointed story (15:00) the questionable inclusion of torture and molestation imagry (21:25) and Pete Townshend’s 2002 child porn allegations (21:57).

As always, a special thanks to Frontier Folk Nebraska for use of their track “Cut You Loose” off their “WARPIG” EP.
