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 !

Amazon.ca

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

It is impossible to review this classic and add anything new to the praises already sung. I purchased the 1995 remastered Universal expanded re-release CD to replace my virtually played out original vinyl copy. It has excellent sound quality, a surprising improvement over the original and any other re-release I have heard, and the added bonus tracks offer a real treat, superior to the studio versions and enhancing the energy and feel of actually being there. Slip on the cans, settle back in my chair, close my eyes, hit the play button and I'm whisked away to front row centre. This album captures The Who at their frenetic best and was and remains THE seminal live album of rock's golden age, a must own for rock lovers in general and especially for Who fans old, new and the merely curious.

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!)

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.

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!!!

When the Who originally released this concert as a six song LP, it was still considered a classic in its own right, despite its brevity. In 1995, when many of the Who classic albums wer remastered and previously unreleased tracks added, it doubled the length of the "Live at Leeds" concert and was now a live album of hard rhythm and blues for more than just the Who collectors. It now featured classic songs, the original Who mini-opera ("A Quick One While He's Away"), a couple of tracks from their full length rock-opera "Tommy," and several R & B and rock and roll covers. It was a full fledged classic, who's power and purity neither fan nor critic could deny. And now my friends, it is the greatest live album in existence, for the entire concert from that night at Leeds College in 1970 is released in the much needed 2 disc format and given the much deserved Deluxe Edition treatment.
Many quip that the concert "isn't perfect" because the four songs that comprised the encore, including "Summertime Blues," "My Generation," and the definitive version of the infamous "Magic Bus" are put at the end of disc one instead of disc two. But disc two is comprised solely of the hour long performance of the Who's magnum opus and easily their greatest achievement "Tommy." If the performance of Tommy was to be spread over two discs, it would take from the consistency of the show. Thus, how the concert is layed out in this format (by Pete Townsend) is the best way.
With that out of the way, on to the music. It's the most raw, vital, young, happy, pure, fun, and yes, BEST, the Who ever sounded on record, live or studio. Some point to their debut as their heaviest infused R & B effort.
