The Who Reissue Live at Leeds


On the heels of revealing plans for a 2011 tour, The Who have announced a forthcoming Live at Leeds reissue.

Live at Leeds: 40th Anniversary Super-Deluxe Collector’s Edition (What a mouthful!) will hit stores on Nov. 15. It will also be packaged with the previously unreleased Live at Hull, which was recorded a day after the Leeds show on Feb. 15, 1970. “Hull was a better gig than Leeds,” frontman Roger Daltrey told the NME. “I remember it like it was yesterday, although in retrospect ‘Live At Hull’ doesn’t really trip off the tongue.”

The two albums will be released as a four-CD set, which will also come packaged with a vinyl LP of the original Live at Leeds album, a hardcover book, a 7-inch single split of “Summertime Blues” and “Heaven and Hell,” and a poster of Pete Townshend.

Brits can pre-order the package here.
