    The Who "Quadrophenia" Silver Album Award. While composing "Quadrophenia" for The Who, Pete Townsend revisited the rock opera concept with another double-album opus, this time with the story of a young man's coming-of-age in the mid-'60s. Arguably a more ambitious project than "Tommy," it allowed the band the opportunity to re-examining the roots of their birth in mod culture through the four-way split personality (hence the title) of a young mod whose split personalities represented the band's members. This silver album award was presented to "The Who Group Ltd. to recognize sales in the United Kingdom of more than 60,000 copies of the Polydor album 'Quadrophenia' " and is dated 1979, the same year the movie based on the album was released. This specific award was Pete Townsend's own copy. Matted and framed to an overall size of 16" x 20", and in Excellent condition.
