Best Live Albums of All Time
1 Attachment(s)
(Recorded 14 February 1970; University of Leeds, Leeds)

‘Live At Leeds’ is considered by many the Holy Grail of the Best Live Albums ever made.Remember that he came out, more than 40 years ago – it was a real punch in the ears such was the power of the sound (is an album to listen loud without any respect for the neighbors). Alongside the best songs of the band , ‘Tommy’ was the first rock opera in history, released in 1969, and was played in its entirety in this concert. What impresses also in this live recording is the loyalty to original arrangements, in the auditorium of the University of Leeds (England) for a privileged audience. The performance of Keith Moon on drums, is absolutely staggering and only confirms that he was one of the greatest rock drummers of all time. With only one guitarist (Pete Townshend, who plays with a Gibson SG), it was up to John Entwistle turn their guitar and fill the gaps – who hears the album doesn’t believe that this speed machine only has four strings and gives reason to Paul McCartney when he asked for an autograph to Entwistle after a show of The Who in the 70′s. Daltrey is in a great night too.

Other favorites:

The Rolling Stones – Get Yer Ya-Ya’s Out!
Jimi Hendrix – Monterey Pop Festival
Queen - Live at Wembley Stadium
Bob Dylan – The Royal Albert Hall ConcertBob Dylan The Royal Albert Hall Concert
