The Who Live at Leeds boxset

by Modculture 5 October, 2010

Leeds

Not everyone's favourite album by them, but if you are a fan of The Who, I'm guessing you will want the Live At Leeds 40th Anniversary Super-Deluxe Collectors Edition.

Yes, as you might have worked out, this is a deluxe reissue for one of the most famous live albums of all time, marking 40 years since it first appeared. Interestingly, it should have been Live at Hull, but the recording had problems there, so a back up was used – Leeds. This boxset actually includes that Hull show, now patched up and ready to go for the very first time. What else do you get? read on…


Two CDs containing the full Leeds show from 14 February 1970 recorded for the album including the complete performance of Tommy.
For the first time ever – two CDs containing the Who’s complete performance from Hull.
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 (replica contracts, letters, poster gig list, photos etc.) and liner notes detailing the history of this landmark album.
A replica 7inch single – Summertime Blues / Heaven & Hell with colour sleeve.
A classic Pete Townshend poster.-  all of that housed in a hard-back box with cover artwork reproducing the original black stamped vinyl first UK pressing which, according to the July 2010 edition of Record Collector magazine, is now valued at approximately £250 in mint condition.
