How Music Changed

    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)

    Tattoo (Hull)

    Young Man Blues (Hull)

    Happy Jack (Leeds)

    I’m a Boy (Leeds)

    A Quick One, While He’s Away (Leeds)

    Overture (Leeds)

    It’s a Boy (Leeds)

    I’m Free (Hull)

    Shakin’ All Over (Hull)
