Abbey Road Half-Speed Master

Pressed On 180 Gram Vinyl And Housed In A Six-Panel Gatefold Sleeve

The Who’s Live at Leeds, regarded by many music critics as the best live rock album of all time, was released in May 1970. Having decided to record a live album, two dates were arranged - one at the University of Leeds on February 14th, 1970 and the other a day later at Hull City Hall. Because of some technical issues with the Hull recording the Leeds show was chosen for release as the live album.

Although the set at Leeds featured 33 songs, only six appeared on the original 1970 vinyl release, including a 14-minute version of “My Generation.” When remixed and released on CD in 1995 the track count increased to 14. Thirty years after the album's original release a 2xCD Deluxe Edition was released featuring all 33 tracks. However, they did not feature the songs in the running order of which they were performed, with the complete “Tommy” taking up the whole of CD2.

This Deluxe Edition Vinyl 3xLP set release now features all 33 tracks in the order they were played by The Who at Leeds University back on Valentine’s Day 1970.

About These Abbey Road Half-Speed Masters:

These releases will offer a superior vinyl experience with Half-Speed Mastering from Abbey Road. They have been exclusively re-mastered at Half Speed to bring you a new level of depth and clarity.
This limited edition range, all pressed on 180-gram vinyl, come in deluxe packaging. The initial releases are all iconic deluxe edition titles from great Universal artists – Amy Winehouse, The Who, James Brown, Marvin Gaye and Mike Oldfield.

The albums were cut from high-resolution digital transfers from the best-known analogue tapes by Abbey Road mastering engineer Miles Showell, one of the foremost practitioners of this artisan process in the world today. Only minimal sympathetic equalization was applied to the transfers to keep everything as pure as possible. Also, as these are vinyl-only releases, Miles did not apply any digital limiting. This is added to almost all digital releases to make them appear to be loud and is responsible for the so-called “loudness war” and in almost every case is anything but natural and pure sounding.
