If memory serves, part of Rael was adapted for the Underture in Tommy.
I was always a big fan of The Who Sell Out. That was one of my vinyls that went missing. I still blame my sister, or rather her friend, when I went overseas for my junior year at college.
And, I believe there is a bit of "Pinball Wizard" in "A Quick One".

The last ten tracks on Endless Wire form the mini-opera Wire and Glass. It's not as well known as "A Quick One While He's Away", and not nearly as mini, but I've always enjoyed listening to it.

I'm so glad Pete didn't get to include "the one" song that tied all of Who's Next into some kind of opera/whatever.

That first clip. That’s from The Rolling Stones Rock N Roll Circus if I’m not mistaken. Great concert (I’ve seen the recording obviously) but very fun to watch. I actually convinced myself to buy it. I’ve watched it numerous times. Still love every bit of it.
