The Who – Tommy (1969)

Tommy is a concept album by English rock band The Who, released in 1969 as a two-LP set on Track/Decca. The songs concern the coming of age of the disabled titular character, whose traumatic inner-war childhood is salvaged by his mastery of pinball. Essentially a rock opera, the album’s concept and songs have formed the basis of later film and stage adaptations.
