Pete Townshend is continuing to mine the aborted Lifehouse rock opera project for new products to offer fans. The Who leader is releasing Pete Townshend: Music From Lifehouse, which features 16 songs from the Lifehouse performances that were staged at London’s Sadler’s Wells Theater on February 25 and 26, 2000. Pete Townshend: Music From Lifehouse is due February 26, and will be available on DVD (with a $24.99 list price) and VHS ($19.98 list) via Image Entertainment.

The songs featured in Pete Townshend: Music From Lifehouse include: “Fantasia Upon One Note,” “Teenage Wasteland,” “Love Ain’t For Keeping,” “Greyhound Girl,” “Mary,” “I Don’t Know Myself,” “Bargain,” “Pure And Easy,” “Baba O’Riley,” “Behind Blue Eyes,” “Let’s See Action,” “Getting In Tune,” “Relay,” “Join Together,” “Won’t Get Fooled Again,” and “Can You Help The One You Really Love?

Townshend began working on Lifehouse after the 1969 rock opera Tommy, but subsequently abandoned it and used some of the songs on Who’s Next. Other pieces intended for Lifehouse cropped up on subsequent Who releases, while Townshend delivered a six-CD set, Lifehouse Chronicles, in 2000.
