Recorded over the same 2 days in February 1970 as the legendary Live At Leeds
, the Hull date was whispered about by some Who aficionados for years as the superior of the two gigs. While both dates were recorded for posterity, problems with the Hull recording stymied its release until extensive restoration work by Pete Townshend in 2010. It eventually surfaced in 2011 as part of the extras on the super deluxe, limited edition Live At Leeds
box, now deleted. Live At Hull
is at last being made available in its own right as part of a 2-CD / download set. Featuring incendiary performances of Who classics such as "Substitute", "I Can’t Explain" and "My Generation", explosive covers of the standards "Fortune Teller", "Summertime Blues’"and "Shakin’ All Over" plus an entire disc comprising a suite of Tommy
recordings, it shows the band at the absolute peak of their world-beating powers.
Remastered, remixed and repackaged in a stylish 6-panel digi-pak, Live At Hull
can at last stand alongside its Live At Leeds
sister as an integral part of The Who’s enduring legacy.
