The Oceanic Concerts is a collaboration album with Pete Townshend and Raphael Rudd that was first publicly released in 2001.

Townshend sings a selection of Who standards ("The Seeker", "Bargain", "Drowned", even the comical "Tattoo") as Rudd accompanies him on harp.[1] Rudd, a harpist and pianist, had been a member of the band Renaissance between 1984-87.[2] He died shortly after the release of this recording in April 2002.

The concerts were recorded around Christmas in 1979 and 1980 according to the liner notes by Rudd.[3]
