Live At Leeds

Next up from 1970, flying in the face of my anti-live album prejudice, is the Who's Live At Leeds.

This is an album that should be played LOUD to scare the neighbors. Frankly, I could do without the 10+ minute "extended" versions of "Magic Bus" and "My Generation" on side two, but the first side is some of the best live music that's ever been recorded.

I finally heard Mose Allison's original version of "Young Man Blues" a few years ago, and it's pretty sweet. but I'd like it even more if it had Keith Moon on drums!
