Quadrophenia is the soundtrack album to the 1979 film Quadrophenia which refers to the 1973 rock opera Quadrophenia.[3] It was initially released on Polydor Records in 1979 as a cassette and LP and was re-released as a compact disc in 1993 and 2001. The album was dedicated to Peter Meaden, a prominent Mod and first manager of The Who, who had died a year prior to the album’s release.

The album contains ten of the seventeen tracks from the original rock opera Quadrophenia. These are different mixes than those that appear on the 1973 album as they were remixed in 1979 by John Entwistle. The most notable difference is the track “The Real Me” (used for the title sequence of the film) which features a different bass track, more prominent vocals and a more definite ending, which was part of the original recording but faded out on the previous mix.[4] Most of the tracks are also edited to be slightly shorter. The soundtrack also includes three tracks by The Who that did not appear on the 1973 album – “Four Faces”, “Get Out and Stay Out” and “Joker James”. The latter two songs marked Kenney Jones’s first on-record appearance with the Who after taking over on drums for the late Keith Moon. “Four Faces” was only one of two outtakes recorded during the original 1973 sessions but unused at the time - The other being “We Close Tonight”, which eventually was released on the remastered version of Odds & Sods.
