The Tommy section of the concert was remixed and the entire concert was remastered together at this time.
Fast forward to and the version is now newly remastered for this box set. Unfortunately was the period of "noise reduction", which was a bit of an enemy in terms of "full quality sound". Hence, it was a good thing that another attempt to improve it took place and I believe the results were much better. I kind of swore off "audiophile reviews" comparing and contrasting CDs since my "tinnitus incident" , but there's no reason to be completely "deaf dumb and blind" when I have something to say which could be helpful and used by folks as a resource I like the version a lot better.
Whereas the sounds a bit "dry" lack of ambiance , the version seems to restore that, giving it a smoother, more palatable sound quality. It's a nice improvement overall.
I'm not quite sure why this happened, but at a young age I was taught In fact, they were better than the studio overdub's version. This is another of life's mysteries. Which is more profound: "Why are we all here? What is to become of this recent remaster? Will it make its way into a future reissue? Or will you folks who never bought it be forced to pay a lot for an out of print box set?
Good questions I'm guessing it will make its way into a future Japan CD release.

Townshend stated that he did this deliberately to mark a part he had edited due to several mistakes. The and CD mixes edit this section differently and do not have the backward portion.
The backwards portion was retained on Greatest Hits Live. In February , the album was reissued as a remixed CD which included more songs than the original vinyl edition, as well as song introductions and other banter that had been edited out of the original release. For the remix, new vocal overdubs from Daltrey, Townshend and Entwistle were recorded to address occasional flaws in the original tapes or performances.
The additional songs were inserted before and in the middle of the original track list, but left "My Generation" and "Magic Bus" as the final two tracks.
In September , a Universal Deluxe Edition version was released. The Deluxe Edition includes more chat between the songs, and the entirety of the band's Tommy set as performed at Leeds.
Again, new overdubs from the vocalists were employed at select points. The Deluxe Edition puts the Tommy set onto the second disc, moving "My Generation" and "Magic Bus" out of order to the end of the first disc. To fix this problem his performance at the Leeds show was overdubbed over these tracks of the Hull performance using digital technology. In November , the complete concert was released in set list order on iTunes and HDtracks , with restoration of much in-between song patter.
In November , Universal Music released the complete concert as a three-disc album on the Polydor label, half-speed mastered at Abbey Road Studios , with a six-panel gatefold sleeve with assorted pictures and liner notes by Chris Charlesworth. All songs written by Pete Townshend , except where noted.

The New York Times. Indeed, its very existence owed something to the efforts of Pete Townshend and company to stymie the bootleggers.
The Who had made extensive recordings of performances along their tour, with the intention of preparing a live album from that material, but they recognized when it was over that none of them had the time or patience to go through the many dozens of hours of live performances in order to sort out what to use for the proposed album.
According to one account, the band destroyed those tapes in a massive bonfire, so that none of the material would ever surface without permission. They then decided to go to the other extreme in preparing a live album, scheduling this concert at Leeds University and arranging the taping, determined to do enough that was worthwhile at the one show.
As it turned out, even here they generated an embarrassment of riches -- the band did all of Tommy , as audiences of the time would have expected and, indeed, demanded , but as the opera was already starting to feel like an albatross hanging around the collective neck of the band and especially Townshend , they opted to leave out any part of their most famous work apart from a few instrumental strains in one of the jams.
Instead, the original LP was limited to the six tracks named, and that was more than fine as far as anyone cared. And fans who bought the LP got a package of extra treats for their money. The album's plain brown sleeve was, itself, a nod and nudge to the bootleggers, resembling the packaging of such early underground LP classics as the Bob Dylan Great White Wonder set and the Rolling Stones concert bootleg Liver Than You'll Ever Be, from the latter group's tour -- and it was a sign of just how far the Who had come in just two years that they could possibly and correctly equate interest in their work as being on a par with Dylan and the Stones.
But Live at Leeds ' jacket was a fold-out sleeve with a pocket that contained a package of memorabilia associated with the band, including a really cool poster, copies of early contracts, etc. It was, along with Tommy , the first truly good job of packaging for this band ever to come from Decca Records; the label even chose to forgo the presence of its rainbow logo, carrying the bootleg pose to the plain label and handwritten song titles, and the note about not correcting the clicks and pops.
