LATEST ‘LIVE AT LEEDS’ CONTEST WINNER
CONTEST: IS LIVE AT LEEDS THE BEST LIVE ALBUM?
Well done, Phillip Ross of Wakefield (not a million miles from Leeds), England for writing a stonker of a piece on why LIVE AT LEEDS is the best rock album of all time.
“To put this album into words would be like devouring an expensive wine in one swallow, “wrote Phillip, “without savouring its rich bouquet of instrumental genius and fruity flavour of hard hitting energetic vocals. The quality of acoustic resonance which screams and lurches into your very soul gives you the impression of actually standing amongst those who were lucky enough to have gone to this iconic gig. To say that “Live At Leeds” is the greatest rock album ever would be a severe understatement. This classic collection of talented and seasoned musical genius serves as the holy grail amongst its peers. Whilst such live albums which are just as musically impressive remain gathering dust, The Who’s distinctive drive and energy is the heart of this magnificent work of art and will be recognised as such for decades if not centuries to come.”
Phillip’s prize, the 40th anniversary LIVE AT LEEDS SuperDeluxe Box Set plus a membership to TheWho.com, is on its way to him.
There were some other excellent entries and 5 runners up have won memberships to TheWho.com.
