    The Who was/were/are one of my favorites. I was fortunate enough to work at their record label in the late 70's and heard them play in small rooms for promotional functions...but I gotta tell you in the 90's I paid HUGE BUCKS ($250) to see them at the LA Forum and they sounded even better than they had in those small rooms 15 years earlier. You can never tire of The Who! I think my favorite track on here is "Magic Bus"... "One of the reasons "Leeds" is prized among Who collectors is that it is one of the best-recorded; the mix is superbly equalized among all three instruments and Daltrey's vocals, and Townshend's guitar sounds especially full-bodied and wet. The performance is one of the tightest and note-perfect of that period--without losing any of its heat or raw power--and the audience is amazingly quiet and respectful, which almost gives the show a "live in the studio" quality. A comparison with "Live At The Isle Of Wight", the only other complete Moon-era performance of "Tommy", is in order: although both shows are extraordinary, "Leeds" is superior for the above reasons (although "Wight" offers arguably better versions of "Young Man Blues" and "We're Not Gonna Take It/See Me Feel Me").
