PURELY MUSIC is the unique musical series recorded live at one of Germany's most prestigious music arenas and is Europe's only on-going live musical event. It focuses on diverse performers whose music reflects a strong African influence whether the style is Rhythm & Blues, Funk, Soul, Rock & Roll or Fusion.*)
Live At Leeds was originally released in 1976 as a limited edition of 10.000 copies. John Martyn produced, designed and marketed Live At Leeds purely by mail order from his home; he even sold the albums from his own front door. Each of the albums were numbered and personally signed. They quickly sold out and became collector's items.
Live At Leeds was sold in a strictly limited edition by mail order only in 1976. It has since become a collector's item not only for its rarity value but also because it records one of the high points of John Martyn's career as a performer with definitive versions of several of his greatest songs. This is the first time it has become available in over ten years. It remains an essential addition to any collection.
