Overture From Tommy 45 by the Assembled Multitude

The Assembled Multitude was one of those groups that was never a real band. Producer Tom Sellers (died in a house fire, 1988)recorded with studio musicians. He formed the group during 1970 and many of the participants would go on to play for the artists who recorded for the Philadelphia International Label.

It was an instrumental unit who covered many of the popular songs of the era. They actually had a good sound if you were into an up-tempo cross between pop and easy listening.

Their biggest hit was a re-working of the Who’s “Overture From Tommy.” Released during the late spring of 1970, it reached number 16 on the BILLBOARD MAGAZINE Pop Singles Chart. It may not have been rock ‘n’ roll but but it resonated with the rock audience of the day.
