The Bottom Line:
Fine reconstruction of historical evening.
This is not the same album as the original Live At Leeds; instead it offers the tapes of the concert itself. So most of the material is unreleased.
Well presented collection of tapes with much unknown material accompanied by 24 page booklet.
Tracks 1-12 are the original concert given 13 February 1975 in the Refectory of Leeds University.
The rest were recorded during rehearsals.
The press release by Universal draws heavily on John Hillarby's 7000 words liner notes.
Sleevenotes and tape research by John Hillarby
Remastered by Paschal Byrne ath The Audio Archiving Company, London
Produced for Universal Music Catalogue by Joe Black
