Quadrophenia is the sixth studio album by the English rock band the Who, released as a double album on 26 October 1973 by Track Records. It is the group's second rock opera. Set in London and Brighton in 1965, the story follows a young mod named Jimmy and his search for self-worth and importance.
But remove Quadrophenia the album, and Quadrophenia the movie would still offer a remarkable depiction of the tribal codes of the era, and one kid’s potentially fatal case of teen angst. As rock operas go, Franc Roddam’s 1979 adaptation of The Who’s Quadrophenia isn’t particularly operatic.The film adaptation of the Who's rock opera Quadrophenia couldn't have been different than the film of Tommy.Where that was garish, star-studded, and wrong-headed, Franc Roddam's Quadrophenia was lean, incisive, and nearly brilliant, thanks in no small part to his gritty, matter-of-fact approach and a searing, star-making performance by Phil Daniels.Universal's 4:3 1999 DVD of Quadrophenia is only just watchable, but cannot be recommended when their 16:9 widescreen 2009 DVD and 2011 Blu-ray editions are such an absolute treat in every respect (especially with the Blu-ray listed by Amazon UK in March 2013 at just 6 pounds).
