Legendary rock band The Who are to release a new expanded edition of their classic 1970 live album ‘Live At Leeds‘ on November 15th.
Entitled ‘Live At Leeds: 40th Anniversary Super-Deluxe Collector’s Edition‘, the new version will contain a revamped take of the original Leeds recordings and will also feature a newly restored live album from the group’s gig in Hull on February 15th 1970 – the night after their performance in Leeds.
Looking back, Who frontman Roger Daltrey has said he believes their Hull show managed to surpass the extraordinary heights they achieved the night before in Leeds, but is still pleased with their decision to issue the Leeds gig, a decision made easier due to a recording error in Hull which omitted John Entwistle’s bass parts. “Hull was a better gig than Leeds,” he said. “I remember it like it was yesterday, although in retrospect ‘Live At Hull’ doesn’t really trip off the tongue!”
The twin live albums will both be released in double CD format, and those who purchase the new edition will also recieve a vinyl edition of the original Leeds recording, as well as a hard-back book, a seven-inch single of ‘Summertime Blues’/’Heaven & Hell’ and a Pete Townshend poster.
