It was originally released as a double album in June 1979 on
Polydor Recordsin the United Kingdomand MCA Recordsin the United States. The soundtrack contains the songs that appeared in the movie except for the performances of "Happy Jack" was a leftover from the Live at Leedssessions. "I Can See for Miles" was from the same performance as "My Generation" on The Smothers Brothers Show but this time the double-tracked vocals are split in stereo. "My Wife" was from a concert The Who filmed but later aborted. "Tommy Can You Hear Me" had a longer outro with Roger repeating the word "Tommy" before Keith Moon screams "'ELLO" to end it.
The soundtrack album did well in the US peaked at Number 8 on the Billboard album chart and went Platinum whilst it peaked at a disappointing Number 26 on the UK charts.It is the soundtrack album to The Who biopic
The Kids Are Alright.
