    How do you spell "ENERGY", T-H-E- W-H-O

    This is absolutely the best live rock and roll recorded album ever. And with this deluxe edition it's even better. You basically have the entire concert recorded from beginning to end with the in between conversations with the band members and everything, stuff that was remixed or deleted on the original cd (or album for those of us that were born with that state of the art stuff) is now just the entire track. It's absolutely beautiful to hear, you can hear Pete make slight adjustments in the volume or pick up control on his guitar in mid song, and for the energy transmitted at this concert Keith Moon could have powered the Saturn Moon rocket if it could've been stored. Some of the songs were not on the original, they definitely picked the best for the original but they still add to those who are WHO fans some flavor as to the beginning struggles that the band had. This is an absolute must for a "REAL" WHO fan.

    The Who at their best

    This is simply one of the most exciting live albums ever recorded. No fan should be without it.

    Complete at Last

    Comparing this re-release by The Who to it's earlier incarnations is impossible. Consider this - The original six song LP from the pre-digital days was and is considered to be (by most) the best live rock album ever. The first remaster from 1995 added so much to the original it took the original Live at Leeds place as best ever. The near excusion of the entire Tommy song cycle was probably done for financial reasons of keeping the package to one CD not two. The bootleg version of this seminal concert is the underlying reason for Pete Townshend agreeing to release this complete version. Under Pete's direction the complete concert is now here in all of it's glory. The sound is superb, the packaging great and the liner notes fantastic. The only thing that I would have done differently is keep the show in sequence instead of seperating Tommy out of the body of the show to it's own seperate disc. But that is a minor quibble as compared to the jem that is this release. If you have any interest at all in hearing rock 'n roll at it's live best, then you must get this. Rock on.

    Live at leeds finally gets the WHOLE thing with little edits

    yes, this is a great double live Cd, u have the original live at leeds remaster with corrected scratch sounds on disc 1 minus ''Amazing Journey/sparks'' and disc 2 is dedicated to the the whole performance of ''Thomas'' as Pete Townshend says. ;-) Anyways this is a great album, the previous pop ''lovey dovey'' singles get a little twist and add a lot more hard, arena rock punch to them.. it's obvious that Led Zeppelin listened to this album and made Presence and a lot of the Physical Graffiti Hard rock recordings after hearing the energy of the who live. Truly amazing.. The energy from this performance would later be used on the who's best album ''who's next'' in 1971 and continue to follow until Moon's death in '78.

    One of the greatest live albums just got better!

    Let's face it folks - when it come to live rock n' roll, it can be said that the original release of Live At Leeds by The Who was was hard to match.
    But when the expanded single-disc was released some years back, it made this recording untouchable.....that is, until the COMPLETE release was done, this deluxe edition 2-disc set includes the entire performance of the rock opera Tommy, along with crowd pleasing songs such as Heaven And Hell, Happy Jack, Fortune Teller and the "Mini-Opera" A Quick One While He's Away.
    The Power And The Fury of The Who at its live finest is right here, right now on this 2-disc Deluxe Edition release.
    You will not be disappointed with this purchase.
    Guaranteed.
