The Who - From Lifehouse to Leeds (1970)

Early versions recorded at the Record Plant, New York for the aborted Lifehouse project, which then became the material for "Who's Next". For those of you who might have wondered how Pete Townshend's lead style got so mean sounding on "Won't Get Fooled Again", that's Leslie West (Mountain) playing lead on this version. (See liner-notes included on re-release of "Who's Next")
Tracks 7 -10 on this CD were available in unedited form, though in "mediocre mono sound" years before the updated and expanded re-release of "Live At Leeds" which has them all in "pristine stereo". This one's a keeper!

Tracks 1-6: Studio Recordings from The Record Plant, New York.
Tracks 7-10: Soundboard recording from University Refectory, Leeds, UK, Saturday, February 14th 1970.

Tracklist: 1. Pure & Easy, 2. Won't Get Fooled Again, 3. Love Ain't For Keeping, 4. Behind Blue Eyes, 5. Baby Don't Do It, 6. Getting In Tune, 7. Young Man Blues, 8. Happy Jack, 9. I'm a Boy, 10. Shakin' All Over With Spoonful.
