...the orchestral record has not been accepted into the Classical Chart, due to the fact that the original material is rock music.-----
On discovering his exclusion ... Townshend expressed his disappointment:
“So musical snobbery in the “classical” elite is still alive & kicking then? F**k ’em. There’s a huge team behind this album, entirely rooted in the practical world of recorded classical music, who deserve better than this petty slap-down. I know I’m a rock dinosaur and I’m happy to be one, but the team on Classic Quadrophenia are all young, creative and brilliant.”
Head's up, Chris Pratt: Spider-Man was fighting genetically engineered dinosaurs back in the 1970s.
