Product Description

Amazon.co.uk

Anyone who owned the vinyl copy of Live at Leeds will barely recognise its digitised namesake. While the 1970 record offered a mere six selections, the 1995 CD reissue is fleshed out with a full 14 tracks. Revelling in the augmented Leeds prompts one to wonder why in the name of "Heaven and Hell" they didn't put out a double record in the first place. No matter. This Live at Leeds is actually superior to its revered predecessor. The Who are at their Maximum R&B peak here, bringing an almost proto-metal aggression to supercharged covers of "Young Man Blues", "Summertime Blues", and "Shakin' All Over" (all from the original record) and treating fans to originals familiar ("I Can't Explain", "My Generation", "Magic Bus") and less known ("Heaven and Hell", "Tattoo", "A Quick One"). An improved-upon classic. --Steven Stolder

5.0 out of 5 stars Who's best 8 Mar 2004
Format:Audio CD
Pete Townshend wanted to record a album of the Who in concert but after a european tour which was extensively recorded, he scrapped all the tapes and decided to record two shows, one in Hull, the other in Leeds. The sound quality of the Hull tapes left a lot to be desired so it was "Leeds" that provided the content for the live album which has since become legendary amongst rock fans and Who afficionados alike.
The album catches the band at the peak of their power, four superb musicians who almost had a "psychic" link with one-another when on stage. Now the album has been re-released in it's entirety, you can hear the full show for the first time.
Classics such as My Generation, Magic Bus, I Can't Explain and Tattoo are delivered "with maximum R & B "as the old Who concert posters used to say with thunderous bass lines from John Entwistle, huge metallic chords from Pete Townshend and as ever, the whole thing propelled along by Keith Moon, playing every drum at once accompanied with a cymbal wash that would split eardrums.
They also tackle some old standards wonderfully well, giving the turbo charged treatment to Mose Allison's "Young Man Blues"and Cochran's "Shakin' All Over", both of which have really become their songs. With all of Tommy for the first time on the second CD, this really gives a balanced view of the Who in concert. I saw them live at Earls Court in the early seventies and have to say it was the best ever. This album catches that raw power coupled with virtuoso musical ability. Even if you aren't particularly a Who fan, this album was then and still is now the blueprint for how every live rock album should sound.

5.0 out of 5 stars Who's Better? No One!! 17 Mar 2002
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
Recorded at a time when The Who had just trawled "Tommy" around the US for a year, "Live at Leeds" was a homecoming, an enjoyable one judging by the passion, humour and downright showmanship displayed by the band that Valentine's night in 1970.
After dumping 80 hours of live US concert material (by bonfire) from the previous year, the Pye Mobile studio was duly booked to record The Who at their peak in Leeds and Hull University with a view to releasing a live album as a filler between "Tommy" and Townshend's next project "Lifehouse" (which was eventually partly scrapped to become "Who's Next"); only Leeds was used for the live album though as the title suggests. The original 30-odd minute LP release deliberately overlooked the "Tommy" segment of the performance to show there was more to the band; "There's people out there who think there's a band called Tommy who have an album called The Who" bemoaned Townshend.
The 25th Anniversary release of Live at Leeds gave us a taster of what else went on that night with two excerpts from the rock opera (although a bootleg version has been around for some time) and we had to wait for this 30th Anniversary edition to hear the rest. Alright, purists may argue that putting the Tommy segment onto it's own CD denies the listener the chance to hear the correct running order of the concert, but it really is a fabulous audio experience and you better make sure that not only your family, but your entire street is outa the way before playing this at full tilt!
From the opening Entwistle thrasher "Heaven and Hell" to the closing bar of "See Me, Fell Me" you can't help wishing that you were there, and you're as exhausted as the band when it's all over.
Comes complete with booklet detailing the background to the concert as well as an excellent narrative of each track from Richard Evans.
Buy and enjoy the moment.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Who at their very best 4 Dec 2000
Format:Audio CD
If you want to know why the Who hated the studio so much, listen to this. It shows what they really did almost every day of the year from 1970-71 before Who's Next. The bass and drums are truely stunning while Roger's vocals go far above anything he did before. This (and Who's Next) is the definitive Who LP. If you want to know what was really going down during the late 60's, this is where it's at. Play it VERY LOUD!!

OK no messing about , if you have got this far you are at least interested...well don't delay like I did, BUY IT NOW and do yourself a huge favour!
Why...well you obviously like the Who or you wouldn't be here, but whether you like, love or are obsessed with the Who your cd collection NEEDS this record.
I had the original vinyl Live at Leeds [LAL] and progressed to the extra tracks cd reissue with Fortune Teller, Heaven and Hell etc. This was a major leap forward in the enjoyment stakes cos it was longer, better recorded and had lots of lovely pics and liner notes/booklety thing to read.
Oh, although it goes with out saying I had better say it anyway, that the actual performance is as close as you can get to the 'OO live in their dynamic earbusting pomp and prime without actually watching them. Crashing power chords, thrashing crashing cacophany of artillery..sorry I mean drums and a bass sound that doubles as another rhythm guitar such is its power and invention. The playing continuously sends goose bumps down your neck with its dynamic tension [sic.]
And I havn't even mentioned Daltry yet which is where this double package adds the cream to an already mouth watering cake.
The complete Tommy performed live...except on bootlegs, this is the first chance to hear what cemented the Who's rep. as the premier live band in the World, [well depending on whether Zep or the Stones were touring at the time.]
Its great to hear the classic album [which lets be honest can be a bit incomprehensable and limp in its studio guise ] performed live, without frills and with the maximum of emotion and feel. Listening to it you DO actually feel you are part of the crowd experiencing part of rocks historical holy canon!
