The Who: Live at Leeds

Ladies and Gentleman, this month’s pick is Live at Leeds, by the Who.
Recorded in 1970, it’s the band’s first live album, featuring the entire original lineup of Roger Daltrey, Pete Townsend, John Entwistle and Keith Moon. Arguably one of the best live bands in the world, I know I really love them, I’m comfortable Live at Leeds will hold its own against the already amazing live albums we’ve already covered.
For the review we’ll be using the 2001 deluxe edition, which is the first one that included the entire concert set list. They tweaked the order a bit to put the whole Tommy rock opera together, but on a first listen it doesn’t cause any major problems and it’s well worth it to get the entire concert.

Summary and Overall Score

Alain’s pick this month took us back to the Grunge era. It turns out we were all already fans of Nirvana though none of us had ever really listened to this album. This album was a compilation of live recordings throughout Nirvana’s short lifespan of 1989 – 1994.
Though we all had some praise and did overall like this album there was some things we agreed were not great parts of this album. Listen to our reviews and then listen to the album yourself to see if you agree. As always, we would love to hear your comments.
