Product Description

Amazon.ca

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

2.0 out of 5 stars Is your hearing okay?!?! Aug. 5 2002
Format:Audio CD
The music is great, oh, it's so wonderful to finally have the whole thing, the sound is so good blah blah blah etc. etc. etc.
Well, first, yes, the music is awesome. It's the Who after all. Would you really expect anything less from one of the world's most powerful live acts?
Second, no, the concert here is not complete. There is still plenty of stage banter that's been cut, not to mention edits in the songs, still. The concert is simply not complete.
But the third, oh the THIRD offense is the most drastic. Do you people *really* think that this sounds good?!?! Okay, disc 1 sounds *similar* to the 1995 Live at Leeds but not exact. But DISC 2?! It does *NOT* sound good by any means. Are you trying to tell me that you can't hear the over application of noise reduction? *That*, in case you don't know, is what caused the entirety of disc 2 to sound like it was recorded in a tin can. Literally! It doesn't sound thin, it *really* *honestly* *truly* DOES sound like it was recorded in a tin can, like it was drenched in metallic sound effects, not to mention the pointless noise reduction has also left the music sounding like it's been flanged. Listen to it through a good pair of headphones. Or even still, ANY headphones. The drums don't sound natural (they sound like they've been blanketed in a light flange the entire disc through). You can hear the results of the noise reduction best during the stage banter. It sounds incredibly processed, because it *IS*. Please, please, please, DO NOT buy this if you have any respect for your hearing or respect for classic music, because the Jon Astley's mastering has ruined great music.
Listen to it before you buy it, to see what I mean. And I don't mean listen to the sound samples, I mean listen to an entire song encoded at a high bitrate so you can hear what it sounds like without the additional distortion that results from high compression mp3's.
WHY must great music be ruined?!

3.0 out of 5 stars Greatest Live Album Ever - Mediocre Re-Re-Release Aug. 14 2003
Format:Audio CD
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: DELUXE EDITION - *** (See above)
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!)

5.0 out of 5 stars The best live rock album EVER! May 6 2004
Format:Audio CD
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!!!

5.0 out of 5 stars The Who: Live at Leeds June 7 2013
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Un retour des plus agréables dans ma jeunesse avec des solos de guitare des plus enlevants. Ce groupe britannique a été génial dans l'innovation du spectacle et de la conception musicale. Ce disque est un must pour les fans des WHO.

5.0 out of 5 stars Nick Jan. 3 2012
By Nick
Format:Audio CD
I had this CD in vinyl years and years ago in Vancouver in the 70's. That was lost so I got the CD some years ago and then when my son-in-law came along and he was into lead guitarists like Jimmy Page and Eric Clapton then I just had to let him know about this live album by The Who. I gave it to him for Xmas and told him to take note two songs of a great, great set and they were the 14minute version of My Generation and the almost as equally good, but not quite the gem as My Generation, Magic Bus. I'm now the cool father he never had at age 59.
