Who fans can get a sneak peek at a previously unreleased live version of “Pinball Wizard” from the forthcoming limited-edition Tommy set — if you can crack a fun memory game at the band’s web site.

The track is part of the super-deluxe version of this new set, which includes four discs, an 80-page accompanying book and a special poster.

Among the tasty new goodies, to go with the remastered original rock opera, are demos from Pete Townshend’s personal collection and a live performance from an October 1969 performance in Ottawa, Canada that was long thought to be lost. Bob Pridden, the Who’s long-time sound man, had been instructed by Townshend to burn the tapes, but instead squirrelled them away for safe keeping.

This new Tommy set, due November 11, 2013, also includes a 5.1 album mix on Blu-ray.
