Customer Review

on 12 July 2001
From the opening roar of "Heaven and Hell" through to the final strum of guitar chords "Live At Leeds" displays The Who at their live peak. Recorded as a stop gap measure between their meisterwork "Tommy" and the equally majestic "Who's Next", it draws from their career to date equally mixing their hits, "Subsitute", "Can't Explain" with extended versions of album tracks, "See Me, Feel Me", "A Quick One". Throughout the tightness of the musicians as a band is clearly displayed while not inhibiting them from personal displays of musical agility that few have ever matched. Townshend rips at the guitar, strokes the guitar, flays at it while all the time leading the other down paths only they're capable of exploring. Entwhistle holds everything down with a bass that throbs constantly like the engine of Centurion tank ticking over. Moon smashes and crashes his way around his kit, seeming at times to stretch out where to none of them will ever reach him but then, remarkably he brings it all back to order as Daltry wails the songs. On display with this cd are a group prepared to explore and experiment but they do it not with sour faces but in a light hearted manner that conceals their abilities, musical agilities and sheer talent! The remastered version of "Live At Leeds" finally makes available a virtually complete performance from the greatest rock n' roll group of that time while they straddled the world and others just had to watch and wish they were that good!
