Product Description

Product Description

Here on 2 CDs is the first complete release of the Who's 1970 concert at Leeds-plus, for the first time anywhere, their entire Leeds performance of Tommy !

There are only a handful of genuinely seminal albums, but The Who's Live At Leeds is undoubtedly one. Recorded in the comparatively intimate environs of the University Refectory, Leeds, in February 1970, the two-hour-plus show was heavily truncated and clocked in at a mere 38 minutes upon it's release as an album later the same year. Despite this, the album's six tracks showcased the thermonuclear dynamics that established The Who as the best live rock band in the world. This long overdue deluxe edition features the entire 33 song set, including the bulk of rock opera Tommy, plus full-length versions of previously lopped cuts. Throughout the proceedings, The Who's blitzkrieg barrage is propelled by the octopus limbed Keith Moon-the-loon and John Entwistle's elasticated, DC10-booming bass, topped with Pete Townsend's tumultuous windmilled power chords and Roger Daltrey's howl. Such is the potency of their attack that they even invest those hoary standards "Summertime Blues" and "Shakin' All Over" with a thrilling savagery, while their rampant charge through Tommy reminds you that the original 1969 double-album--unlike Ken Russell's ridiculously excessive film version--was an audacious attempt to tinker with rock's building blocks. --Chris King

I have always considered The Who to be the greatest live band ever. Live at Leeds is a sure testament to that claim. However, MCA continually attempts to do the album justice by re-mixing, re-mastering, and releasing it until they finally have the perfect version. Unfortunately, the newest incarnation, Live at Leeds: Deluxe Edition, is far from perfect and while claiming to have been restored to its full concert length, the Tommy tracks have been placed on one disc and the non-Tommy tracks placed on the other. This is quite bothersome as Tommy was originally played before several non-Tommy tracks. Although the track listing has been altered, this isn't the biggest problem. It seems that too much noise reduction has been used and the tracks have an almost sterile sound (The 1995 release of Live at Leeds has better sound quality than Deluxe Edition). I recommend this release only to hardcore Who fans that collect for specifically archival reasons and I suppose for the packaging as well (which is quite nice). Otherwise, as another reviewer has said, go out and find the bootleg of the Leeds show entitled Live At Leeds: Complete. LALC has the original running order from beginning to end, with no edits. Basically it's just the original tape with no alterations made. The sound isn't so bright but it's very honest, raw and powerful. Here's my ratings:
LIVE AT LEEDS (1995 Remaster) - ***** (Excellent sound quality and expanded to 15 tracks!
LIVE AT LEEDS COMPLETE - ***** (The original full length concert in brutal stereo! No edits!)

This is what live rock and roll is meant to be. The songs practically bristle with electric intensity, and the performances are second to none. Daltrey has never sung better, or with more conviction and swagger. Moon and Entwistle provide a razor sharp rhythm behind every song: Moon at his frenzied best, and Entwistle, stomping his way through the songs like Godzilla invading Tokyo. Ringleader Pete Townsend just slays the guitar parts, earning him the title The Best Sloppy Guitarist Ever (AKA the Neil Young Award). Standout cuts include "Amazing Journey/Sparks", "Young Man Blues" (Wow!), and "Summertime Blues". If this album does not give you goosebumps on every listen, then go back to letting your brain rot as it chews on the saccharine goop offered forth by the pop stars of the day. For all others, buy this record and ROCK!!!

I never bought the original "Live at Leeds," having for the Who the same sort of love/hate affair I have with the Beatles (this may be the result of being an unabashed Stones fanatic, I don't know). I'd look at the songs on it, go, wow, just six, and pass.
Boy am I glad I waited.
The remakes of records have a disturbing tendency to historical revisionism. Here's an exception. The biggest change history made to the original "Live at Leeds" was SIMPLY PUTTING THE BEST PARTS OF THE SHOW ON THE RECORD, FINALLY! Every one of my favorite numbers here isn't on the original record. I'd go so far as to say that if you own the original vinyl version, encase it in Lucite as a period piece. And BUY THIS ONE. It's worth the price for "Heaven and Hell" ALONE. The Who never rocked harder or tighter, live or in the studio, than this one; Townsend's solo soars. He sounds more like Mick Taylor or Jimi Hendrix than like Pete Townsend! "Fortune Teller" is a metal-destructo take on the '50s chestnut covered in an entirely different (and equally good) fashion by the Stones. "Substitute" (OK, this one was on the original) sounds like a Led Zeppelin cover of a Who song. "A Quick One" is also on "The Rolling Stones Rock and Roll Circus" disc; they do a fairly identical version here, which highlights all of the group's gifts maybe better than any other single Who song. The harmony on "Tattoo" is heartbreakingly gorgeous. The "Tommy" excerpts rock out. Roger Daltrey is the frontman's frontman; his mini-discography between-songs patter is as fun to listen to as the songs. The sound quality will wow you. If this isn't Best Live Record Ever, it's top 5.

Visceral. Pounding. Glorious rock and roll!! This is their absolute best recorded work. John Entwistle, Pete Townshend, Roger Daltrey, and Keith Moon function like a single mind--a pulsating single organism, producing wave after wave of jaw-dropping sound. Every instrument is played like a lead instrument, but no one is upstaging. There's plenty of improvisation (including a little stand-up comedy between songs). You can just feel Townshend planning ahead, while always keeping us in the moment; and you think "does this song have an end?...hooray, no it doesn't!...Keep playing, keep playing!".
I don't know how they can keep singing harmony (and sometimes syncopated vocals) --especially Entwistle's singing high harmony while playing bass-- while they continue to produce jazzy complex riffs with frequently changing rhythmic and style patterns...And I just know that, if I could see them, they'd been leaping and gyrating all over the stage in typical athletic Who, Wow, WOW!
