Biography

The Who are a four-piece mod/rock band whose first album, My Generation, bristled with attitude; the lyric "I hope I die before I get old" tapped into the disaffection felt by post-war baby boomers, helping to secure a loyal fanbase and establish the band at the forefront of the mod movement.

In the studio the band's innovative approach to recording helped to realise ... Read more in Amazon's The Who Store

I was born in 1970, and maybe that is why music of that year in particular has always had special resonance for me. No record has ever been as completely gobsmacking to me, however, as Live at Leeds. The original record was ludicrously compact (just 6 tracks, albeit with two spread out over a whole side) and hearing it had a physical impact. It is, simply, the greatest live recording of a rock band ever, and always shall be, in my opinion, since the live album as defined by LAL is dead. In 1995, I was overjoyed by the single-disc extended remix/remaster, not just for the huge number of extra tracks and superb sound, but because it proved that those 6 tunes were no fluke. February 14, 1970 at the Leeds University refectory, an unrepeatable magic was present. The Who, always ferocious live at that point, simply played the perfect show---not a note out of place, no awkward stretches of jamming, incredibly few off notes on the vocals. It was heaven for the Who fan. In 2001, a double-CD Deluxe Edition of LAL was released that added a second CD with the entire live Tommy performance from that night. This I did not buy, simply because the 1970 Isle of Wight double-CD had come out and I felt I had enough live Tommy. That reissue, however, had many detractors, because the sound this time was compromised by Jon Astley's heavy hand on the No-Noise control---I did listen to the Tommy disc checked out from a public library, and yes, it did not sound great like the 1995 single CD did--very telescoped, quiet, lacking power. Enter 2010, LAL's 40th anniversary, and mine. Read more ›

5.0 out of 5 stars Living for Leeds December 5, 2010
Format:Audio CD
I hated The Who when I was young. This goes back to an incident in my youth (around 5 or 6) while sitting in a car in a parking lot with my parents, oblivious to what was on the radio, my Dad cranked "Won't Get Fooled Again" right at Roger's famous, glass-shattering scream. It scared me, my parents had a laugh, but I detested that song for years. Later when I learned who The Who were and what they were all about my entire perception changed. Sure enough my Dad had the original Leeds LP in his collection. I bought the expanded Special Edition CD which lacked Tommy sometime during high school. When the Deluxe Edition popped up I bought that too. Now this "Super-Deluxe Edition" (Really? We couldn't just call it the 40th Anniversary Edition?) is here and so, you guessed it, I bought this one as well!

I love books, memorabilia, photos, and reproduction vinyl's as much as the next guy, but for me Live at Hull was the real attraction here, as most fans will probably agree. Live at Leeds was always intended to be Live at Hull. The band preferred the Hull gig, the audio was said to be of better quality, but a recording snafu meant John's bass was missing. Lo and behold it was only missing from the first four songs. Those four songs do appear on the Live at Hull CD's with the bass tracks from the Leeds show digitally mixed into the Hull recordings. Listening to those four songs it's obvious that a lot of effort went into making this bass-substitution work. The Who never play a song exactly the same way twice, but at this point in their career they were at least playing similarly enough night-to-night for a stunt like this to work. I will note, however, that John's bass has a distinct lack of "punch" that the rest of the show has.

5.0 out of 5 stars Greatest Rock band of all time!! November 23, 2010
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
This has always been the best live show of all time, and if Hull isn't now #2 it is the new number one. The band sounds fantastic and the so called flown in bass for the first 4 tracks is a non-issue. The Who are a powerhouse at Hull and if you don't believe it play the version of My Generation from The Hull set and sit back with an adult beverage and enjoy the ride. The packaging itself is very impressive. The book alone is almost worth the price. It is a fairly thick hard cover book that contains many photos and extensive linear notes. The lp of Leeds seems to be 180 gram perhaps 200 gram. The poster is the classic Maximum R&B Townshend shot Marquee. It is a very impressive set and I am not sure why people complain about the price tag as you are getting a great deal for your buck. Amazing and well worth the purchase. Greatest band of all time and this set comfirms it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Super Great Sounding November 23, 2010
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
As being a long time Who fan and loved the Live at Leeds Album, The new live at Hull versions just like everyone stated is a better sounding recording than Leeds. It just sounds so much clearer, I don't know if it had something to do with the acoustics of the venue or what. The band is really tight with one another and it is just a great sounding who show.
Amazon has it listed as 6 disc it is 4 compact disc,A 12 inch vinyl record and A 78 (I think) record. The 64 page book is very nice all the original leeds and new Hull information in a hard bound book. The book and CD/Record folder are both housed in a thick open ended box. The poster is the standard Maximum R&B Townshend poster. Too bad it had to be folded.
