This review is from: Live At Hull (Audio CD)
It is interesting, when the same album is recorded twice; it's always the unreleased version that is perceived as the strongest & an over-sight by The Band/Record Company for making the wrong choice.
As is the case with "..Live from Hull" the sister of "Leeds", which has gained almost mythical status over the prevailing decades.
This is a great live album, but it's pretty similar to "Leeds", apart from songs like "A Quick one." "Young Man Blues" & "My Generation", which are slightly different.
You've probably you've got "Leeds" & "Isle of White" already, so unless you're a massive Orrible Who fan, this isn't an essential purchase.
Still, a outstanding & innovative record, with a decent sound quality.
Although I'd be a bit miffed if I'd forked out all that money for the "Leeds" box then found out I could buy this for a Tenner!

I've just ordered this. You do realise that Hull had a recording flaw and that's why it couldn't be used as the first choice? The bass feed to the desk was really low down in the mix. Modern technology has enabled Townshend to repair this.
Saw them in 70 and 76 and I can't wait for this to drop through my letterbox!!

Yeah, the bass guitar from "Leeds" has been dubbed onto the first six songs on this album, still sound good though.
