Music from Lifehouse.
Lifehouse Chronicles is a box set released in 2000 by Pete Townshend with the focus of the box being the formerly "abandoned" Lifehouse rock opera. The set contains song demos by Pete Townshend; including solo versions of "Baba O'Riley", "Won't Get Fooled Again", and "Who Are You", and the Lifehouse Radio Program.
Lifehouse was a science fiction rock opera by the Who intended as a follow-up to Tommy. It was abandoned as a rock opera in favour of creating the traditional rock album Who's Next, though its songs would appear on various albums and singles by the Who, as well as Pete Townshend's solo albums. In 1978, aspects of the Lifehouse project were revisited by the Who on Who Are You. In 2000, Townshend revived the Lifehouse concept with his set Lifehouse Chronicles and the sampler Lifehouse Elements

According to legend, Townshend couldn't get anybody interested in his allegedly disjointed ideas. The truth was all wrapped up in music and film-biz politics. Townshend's Lifehouse was to be a rock opera all right, but it was to be a musical for screen with footage of the Who performing the story's soundtrack. This desire of Townshend's to move into film had a practical purpose: in part, it was to get the Who off the endless slogging of the road for sometimes years at a time.
For Pete Townshend, that moment arrived in 1971, in the middle of working on a hugely ambitious multimedia project he'd dubbed Lifehouse. Townshend closed the '60s on a creative and professional high fueled by the Who's 1969 effort Tommy, a song cycle that would go on to become arguably the band's defining achievement - and one of the few rock operas to find critical as well as commercial acceptance. The idea of music as a grand unifier laid the groundwork for Lifehouse, which imagined a future in which most people drift through meaningless lives wired into a sort of virtual reality, with the exception of a few stragglers (and some kids, natch) who find a way to reawaken the human race with a communal rock concert. That brief overview leaves out a number of the story's finer points, but - as Townshend himself was soon to discover - there's no easy way to describe Lifehouse.
As many fans are aware, Townshend's delayed Lifehouse project (ultimately finished in 1999) figured prominently in the Who's masterful "Who's Next" album and several of these terrific songs are performed entirely by Townshend on this release.

Townshend never really abandoned Lifehouse, though, and over the years continued to write new songs and made a couple more attempts to get it to the big screen. Fast forward to December 1999, when the BBC broadcasted a radio play of Lifehouse, adapted by Jeff Young from Townshend’s original idea. It was the first real headway Townshend had made in bringing Lifehouse to life. More exciting still was the news that Townshend was readying a six-CD box set, The Lifehouse Chronicles - just released via his Web site ww. elpie
