This review is from: Live At Leeds (Audio CD)
An outstanding album, but my only slight criticism, as always with The Who, is Pete Townshend's inability to play lead. Many of the songs are crying out for a Hendrix or Claptonesque style solo, but when he attempts it, such as in Heaven and Hell and Young Man Blues. all you get is a succession of bum notes. However, he is an excellent rhythm guitarist, and the virtuosity of Entwhistle and Moon, combined with Daltrey at the height of his powers, provides one of the greatest live albums of all time. A must.

I actually love the rawness and 'bum-note' quality of Pete's playing and think that he did brilliantly, considering that he was scissor-jumping, running and windmilling as well! How would you have done?
