The Who: Live at Leeds and Hull, 1970
Episode date - January 11, 2019
Last week we played the original tracks from “Live at Leeds”, an album that has often been referenced as one of the best live documents of a rock and roll show ever released. The amazing truth, though, is that the album itself only contained approximately one quarter of the original show.
Additionally, a second night was also recorded but went unreleased for decades, due a perceived error with the recording (that, as it turns out, only affected a few of the tracks, which were then subsequently repaired). In short, today’s live recordings are a vital document of The Who at the peak of their performance abilities. To avoid redundancy, we intersperse performances from Leeds and Hull.
Featured tracks include;
Heaven and Hell (Leeds)
I Can’t Explain (Leeds)
Fortune Teller (Leeds)
Young Man Blues (Hull)
Happy Jack (Leeds)
I’m a Boy (Leeds)
A Quick One, While He’s Away (Leeds)
It’s a Boy (Leeds)
I’m Free (Hull)
Shakin’ All Over (Hull)
