About this product

Live At Leeds was the ultimate confirmation of the Who’s sheer ferocity as a live rock act without equal. Whereas their studio recordings had only tantalisingly hinted at the all-out barrage of the senses that a live Who gig produced, Live At Leeds removed all doubt.

Those 150 minutes are captured on the Super-Deluxe 40th Anniversary Collectors’ Edition of this landmark of live albums. At the time, live pop or rock albums tended to be primitive affairs when capturing both band and audience. Live At Leeds was no exception, recorded on a mobile unit placed amid the kitchen of a university refectory in an unassuming industrial town in northern England. But the results – crackling noises and all – were enough for influential pop culture writer Nik Cohn, to describe Live At Leeds in his New York Times column as “the best live rock album ever made.”

This new edition of one of the most important live rock albums ever contains

- Two CDs containing the full Leeds show from 14th February 1970
- Two CDs containing The Who's complete performance from Hull which was recorded the following evening but ultimately left in the vault as Leeds was throught to have yielded better results
- A heavyweight vinyl reproduction of the original six-track album as it was released in 1970
- A new 64 page hard- back, colour book containing rare photos, memorabilia from the original release and liner notes detailing the historyof this landmark album
- A replica 7 Inch Single of 'Summertime Blues/ Heaven & Hell' with colour sleeves
- A classic Pete Townshend poster
- Housed in a hard-back box with cover artwork reproducing the original black stamped vinyl first UK pressing
