Win The Who’s ‘Live at Hull 1970′ 2-CD Set
It’s been an early Christmas for fans of the Who with the release of ‘Live at Hull 1970,’ a classic concert performance that has just become commercially available as a two-CD set for the first time. Now you can win one of ten copies of this classic release exclusively through Ultimate Classic Rock, courtesy of Universal Music Enterprises.
The Who were one of the most powerful live acts of the ’70s, whose incendiary concerts were literally the stuff of legend. Their album ‘Live at Leeds’ is widely considered to be one of the essential live rock documents of all time. Recorded on Feb. 15, 1970 — the night after the gig at Leeds — the Who’s performance at Hull is one that many Who fans and connoisseurs feel was the better show. But the tapes from that experienced intermittent failure in recording Entwistle’s bass parts, so the Leeds gig was chosen for release instead.
Those parts have been restored from the Leeds tapes for this extraordinary release, which marks the first time the Hull performance — which was previous available only as part of a now-deleted ‘Live at Leeds’ deluxe box set — has been available as a stand-alone CD set. The double disc package also comes with an all-new 6-panel digi-pak based on the tapes recorded that night.
