Tommy is a compilation by The Wedding Present gathering their first four singles, their B-sides and selected tracks from two early radio sessions. It was released in July 1988 by their own record company, Reception Records.
Tommy provides an overview of the band’s output before its first album George Best. The production is relatively low fidelity but the songs are high-energy. All tracks of their first four singles are included except for “You Should Always Keep in Touch with Your Friends”, the double A-side with “This Boy Can Wait”, as the radio version was deemed superior. Similarly, all tracks of their first John Peel session are included but for the radio version of “This Boy Can Wait”, whose single version was considered better.
By the time of their fourth single, “My Favourite Dress”, the band had started working with Chris Allison, who went on to produce the band’s George Best and Bizarro albums.
Two of the songs on Tommy made a reappearance on George Best: “What Becomes of the Broken-Hearted?”, re-recorded under its new title of “It’s What You Want That Matters”, and “My Favourite Dress” with an added new coda.
