Peter Townshend's 1969 masterpiece 'Tommy' really isn't remembered much these days.  Most classic rock programmers prefer other faves like 'Who's Next' and 'Who Are You.'  Those may not sound as dated as Tommy does, you be the judge, as we feature the album's beginning Overture on today's Vinyl Vault.  Townshend shines on that acoustic!  Hear it around 5:20pm, either on US1031 or live on-line.
