    Wow I've just listened to the Live at Hull version - probably for only the second time - and it blows me away. I learnt the Live at Leeds version note for note when I was 19 because I loved it so much, and I miss the familiarity in the Hull version, but the energy in the Hull version is incredible.

    It's common knowledge of course that Live at Hull would have been the live album had there not been the recording mishap with John's bass.

    No poll because they're both brilliant, but please discuss.

    Hull sounds a lot more like they actually sounded live. Leeds is too perfect not to have been overdubbed guitar-wise. If it wasn't Pete never played like that in his life before or after.

    I read in his autobiog that he stood still for most of those gigs to keep the guitar more consistent and not hit bum notes because they were recording it I agree the live at Leeds performance is very near perfect, which is why I learnt it note for note ( or nearly ) way back in whenever it was.
