I am doing this *ONLY* because I beleive the album is out of print and can only be had by searching sites where individuals can sell the personal copies such as Amazon and Ebay. If it is still commercially available, please let me know and I will immediately delete it.

This came out in 1989, so I think it'll be OK here

"The Iron Man: A Musical, released in 1989, is an adaptation of Ted Hughes' story The Iron Man, produced and largely composed and performed by Pete Townshend of The Who. It also stars Roger Daltrey, Deborah Conway, John Lee Hooker, and Nina Simone. The three then-surviving members of The Who (Daltrey, John Entwistle, and Townshend) performed as a group in two songs, "Dig" and "Fire", although the latter was not penned by Townshend"

Pete Townshend is a friend of Ted Hughes and so unlike the Disney film The Iron Giant, Pete's version is much more faithful to the origional story

My favorite part is "I Eat Heavy Metal" where the Iron Man has broken out of the hole he was buried in and unintentionally shows how badass he is by *eating* the heavy military artillery deployed to stop him

I just found out that it is still commercially available as a new item in the U.K. from this site that ships internationally, so as I said I would, I have deleted the zip. Here's the link where you can buy it
