One of the greatest live rock albums of all time with eight new cuts!
Anyone who owned the vinyl copy of Live at Leeds will barely recognize its digitized namesake. While the 1970 record offered a mere six selections, the 1995 CD reissue is fleshed out with a full 14 tracks. Reveling in the augmented Leeds prompts one to wonder why in the name of "Heaven and Hell" they didn't put out a double record in the first place. No matter. This Live at Leeds is actually superior to its revered predecessor. The Who are at their Maximum R&B peak here, bringing an almost proto-metal aggression to supercharged covers of "Young Man Blues," "Summertime Blues," and "Shakin' All Over" (all from the original record) and treating fans to originals familiar ("I Can't Explain," "My Generation," "Magic Bus") and less known ("Heaven and Hell," "Tattoo," "A Quick One"). An improved-upon classic. --Steven Stolder

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.

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 fashion....wow, Wow, WOW!
