Live At Leeds
50 years old this June, the album was recorded asThe Who were looking for a way to follow up their 1969 album Tommy (they had recorded several shows on tours supporting Tommy, but didn't like the sound). Consequently, they booked the show at Leeds University, along with one at Hull City Hall the following day, specifically to record a live album. And what an album.
Six songs were taken from the Leeds show, and the cover was pressed to look like a bootleg recording. The sound was significantly different from Tommy and featured hard rock arrangements that were typical of the band's live shows. Since its release, Live at Leeds has been cited by several music critics as the best live rock recording of all time
