After a brief tease of Michael Jackson’sThriller” through the P.A. system, fans in attendance at Halloween 1995 were immersed in the sound of crashing waves that signaled the beginning of The Who’s 1973 epic album Quadrophenia. True to this song’s original form, the band lightly accompanied the sound effects with textural background tones and lyrics from the four distinct melodies that underlay the rock opera. It may be more than mere coincidence that the band performed this album, punctuated with images of water, in the same year that aquatic imagery was evident in several new original songs (see “Theme From the Bottom,” “Free,” etc.).
