Product Description:

Personnel includes: Pete Townshend (vocals, guitars).
The songs on PSYCHODERELICT are set within the context of a narrative. This is not a rock opera, but rather something akin to a radio-play. Actors were enlisted for the spoken segments.
The edited version of PSYCHODERELICT contains only the music tracks and has different cover art.
Personnel includes: Pete Townsend (vocals, guitar).
Personnel: Pete Townshend (vocals, guitar, keyboards).
Who leader Pete Townshend's musical "play" PSYCHODERELICT is a song cycle interspersed with spoken-word dialogue. The theme, that of an aging and fading rock star struggling to find grace, is one that Townshend tackles frequently and usually with considerable aplomb. On this music-only version, Townshend lets the songs do the talking. Though a few less-than-stellar moments borne out in the staged version of PSYCHODERELICT carry over to the music, there are indeed thrilling moments of grace in the clamor. The fiery "Predictable" and the storming "English Boy" are vigorous workouts with Townshend in fine defiance of the ravages of aging. Conversely, both "Now and Then" and "Fake It" treat the usually tawdry tales of May-December romances with unflinching honesty and surprising vulnerability.
