from Live at Leeds

“” / “” Released: June 1970

Live at Leeds is the first by English band, It was recorded at the on 14 February 1970, and is their only live album that was released while the group were still actively recording and performing with their best-known line-up of,, and, The Who were looking for a way to follow up their 1969 album, and had recorded several shows on tours supporting that album, but disliked the sound.

  • Six songs were taken from the Leeds show, and the cover was pressed to look like a,
  • The sound was significantly different from Tommy and featured arrangements that were typical of the band’s live shows.

The album was released in 11 May 1970 by and in the United States, and by and in the United Kingdom. It has been reissued on several occasions and in several different formats. Since its release, Live at Leeds has been cited by several as the best live rock recording of all time.

Where did the Who play Live at Leeds?

On the 14th of February, 1970 The Who performed a show Live at the University of Leeds Refectory. When The Who stepped on stage, they were at the top of their game musically. They had just returned to England from touring in support of “Tommy” abroad and had successfully brought the idea of “a concept album” to the masses.

  • The tour they had just completed had earned them a reputation for being one of the greatest live bands of that era.
  • According to biographer Chris Charlesworth, “a sixth sense seemed to take over”, leading them to “a kind of rock nirvana that most bands can only dream about”.
  • However, there was still dissatisfaction amongst the group since they hated the fact that “Tommy” had been promoted as “high art” by their manager Kit Lambert.

They wanted their stage show to have equal importance to that album’s rock-opera format so they sought to destroy that impression and made it a point to move away from the album’s rock-opera format that had been a staple with these concerts. So, when the band returned to England at the end of 1969, their immediate desire was to release a live album, which highlighted the concerts that were recorded earlier.

Pete Townshend soon realized what a daunting task this would be as he would have to listen to all the live recordings that came from that tour, and decide which would make the best album. Based on an account provided by Chris Charlesworth, Pete instructed sound engineer Bob Pridden to burn the tapes and he would soon label this decision as “one of the stupidest decisions of my life.” Instead, The Who decided that they should play a live concert in the UK and have that recorded for the live album.

Two shows were booked specifically for this idea, one at the University of Leeds and the other in Hull. For these performances, Pete chose the Gibson SG as his weapon of choice and that was coupled with a Hiwatt amplifier that allowed him to get a variety of tones simply by adjusting the guitar’s volume level.

This is the first UK pressing (300 copies made), with the black stamp on cover (blue and red came later). It contains a set of 11 inserts + a poster. The set was originally stored in a greaseproof-bag, where the inserts were held inside the pocket into the gatefold cover (see pic).

The set was composed as follow: 01) The Large ‘MARQUEE’ Poster (the “LIVE AT LEEDS” one cames later); 02) The ‘KINGS AGENCY’ insert (‘hole punched’ to the left, later ones aren’t); 03) The Small ‘DELIVERY NOTE’ insert (thin ‘typewriter’ paper, later ones are thicker normal paper); 04) The ‘MY GENERATION LYRICS’ typed insert (with handwritten annotations and THREE handwritten ‘*’ – stars – two on the right & 1 on the left, later ones only have two); 05) The Small ‘NOTICE’ Insert (‘hole punched’ to the left, later ones aren’t); 06) The ‘NEW ACTION LTD’ insert (folded along the central line, later ones are NOT); 07) The ‘HIGH NUMBERS’ typed payment insert (made in the CORRECT Yellow Colour, later ones aren’t, and folded along the central line, later ones aren’t); 08) The ‘PREMIER TALENT ASSOCIATES’ Contract Insert (made in the CORRECT Yellow Colour, later ones aren’t); 09) The ‘EMI RECORDS’ correspondence insert (made on CORRECT thinner paper, later ones are thicker); 10) The ‘MARQUEE CLUB’ payments insert (‘hole punched’ to the left, later ones aren’t); 11) The Small ‘PICTURE OF THE WHO’ photograph insert (every face & eyes of EVERY Who member are FULLY visible and 100% clear, later ones were badly printed, much darker, and lack detail); 12) The ‘GUITAR OVERHEAD’ insert (with ‘handwritten text’ on the reverse.

The writing is PERFECT in COLOUR & DETAIL and most importantly in the EXACT shade of ‘biro blue’ and looks absolutely EXACT. All later ones are obviously (& badly!) printed in black). Copy with runout variant 3 includes the original polyline “Plastic Bags” Polydor inner sleeve dated May 1970 (0570), see detailed pic.

ul> Rare perhaps, but I too am not convinced about this particular version being one of only 300. My copy has all 12 inserts still contained within the original grease proof bag. All are in perfect shape, as is the bag. Purchased my copy a few years back from a guy who had owned it from new and appears to have done no more than slit open the bag to look at what was inside and put the album on a turntable a few times. What is up with the weird liner note in early CD versions that says “”Recorded February 14, 1970, except for “Young Man Blues” recorded December 26, 1968.” Young Man Blues is from Leeds, and the Who didn’t even perform on Dec.26th 1968. The Who played on the concert 34 tracks. Too much for a vinyl. (I have the complete concert on mp3). Looking for information on this version I’m looking at. Everything matches MG 712420 (including the sleeve & inserts.) but this one has Matrix “R104025” is also printed on the ring, just underneath “MG 712420”. There is also a small rectangular clear sticker on the bottom left of the outer sleeve with “R104025” Side 1: R10 4025A 2S A1 Side 2: R10 4025B 2S A2 Is there a way I can post pictures here? Or should I just submit add a release? This is my first Discogs post so please go easy on me if this isn’t the right place for format.:) Oggi giornata proficua, oltre Who’ Next, ho trovato “Live at Leeds” che contiene 5 brani bellissimi. Sulla facciata 2 vi sono ” Magic Bus” e la mitica “My Generation”.l Sulla 1a facciata “Summertime” è composta da Townshend, le altre 3 da Mose’ Allison, Cochran and Heath.1970 GRANDI WHO. Avevo acquistato gli album degli Who su cd ( erano i primi anni duemila ), il vinile non era ancora risorto. Poi un bel giorno vidi il doppio “Tommy” in edizione da 180 gr. completamente rivista la copertina trifold diventa gatefold, la posizione dei brani sui 2 vinili cambia,comunque il vecchio tenuto bene in mio possesso come suono mi soddisfò maggiormente. Edited 2 years ago I don’t agree with the black labels being primarily the first pressings, auction site hype I’m afraid, I have a red label front cover, with a black track records label inner cover, full paperwork with wax paper envelope, correct photos and docs, Matrix / Runout (Variant 1, Side A runout stamped): 2406001 A//1 1 1 side b 2406001 b/1 1 1,blue biro record label text, this copy is much rarer than the black copy, try finding a copy with opposite coloured labels. How can the first press (300 copies) excist in +1000 collections? The best live performance of its era. Magic Bus and My Generation.wonderful. It is very rare that you’ll find all 12 inserts in the black sleeve for sale on here, so the inclusion of the grease proof bag to make the complete set is really nit picking. I’ve never seen the elusive bag, not even a shredded one and I have had lots of copies of this lp pass through my hands.
