2010 issue UK Super Deluxe 40th Anniversary Collectors Edition MULTI-FORMAT Boxset – Following on the heels of the success of the 'rock opera' Tommy, 'Live At Leeds' unwittingly documented the Who at the peak of their powers, whose shows now stretched up to two and a half hours without a break containing Tommy as their centrepiece. Except it should have been very different. The original intention was to release the recording from the Hull City Hall performance the night after Leeds. The recording from Leeds, the first gig of the tour, was largely set up as a back-up in case there were any problems with the Hull recording. Suffice to say, upon listening to the Hull tapes it was thought that John Entwistle's bass was missing. With little they could do to repair the tapes, the band went with the Leeds recording for release instead, despite preferring the Hull performance. Years later, the Hull tapes were revisited and it was discovered that because the first reel consisting of four tracks had no bass, everyone had assumed that the whole show had no bass and didn't listen to any more of it, but in fact the rest of the gig was complete. Through the wonders of modern technology, however, the full Hull recording has been repaired by flying in Entwistle's bass tracks from the Leeds recording to repair the Hull tapes and is now available in it's entirety for the first time ever. This stunning set comprises <2CDs containing the full Leeds show from 14 February 1970 including the complete performance of 'Tommy'; <2CDs containing the Who's complete performance from Hull; a Heavyweight Vinyl reproduction of the original six-track album [as it was released in 1970], all housed in a hard-back box with blocked barcode, featuring cover artwork reproducing the original black stamped vinyl first UK pressing, complete with a new 60-page hard-back, colour book containing rare photographs, memorabilia from the original release [replica contracts, letters, poster gig list, photos etc] and liner notes detailing the history of this landmark album; a replica 7" single featuring 'Summertime Blues' & 'Heaven & Hell' and a classic Pete Townshend Poster!
