JEM Records Celebrates Pete Townshend.

August 5th, Release Date.


Available on Vinyl, CD, Amazon, Apple Music

And the individual band/musicians media.


The third in Jem Records “celebrates” series

Following the previous collection of

John Lennon, Brian Wilson music.


To correlate any clichéd “Who” reference would be a disservice to

each band/musician, personality/sound, /expertise/craft.


The eclectic interpretations centralizes the pathos of Jem Records.

Perfectly mirrored in the choosing of hits, album cuts, non album singles and solo albums.


This is not an amateur development project.

This collection is comprised of impassioned technique,

transcendent emotional content, studio precision, sentient malleability and

heart captivating vocal doubling.


There’s not a miscalculation throughout the intention of arrangement

Everyone did their homework, surpassing any uncertainty of a mediocre final mix.


Not going to weigh in with a comparison of each track,

for that’s subjective to the individual listeners liking.


I know not the connection/reason between artist and song choice

That being, each song choice could simply be a quintessential matching.
