Live At Leeds & more

Album available as:-
(Recall 9559)

Love the original 6 tracks on disc 1, but the sound quality (pitch wobble, loads of hiss) and performances (mediocre I thought) on the bonus tracks on disc 1 make them pretty unlistenable to me, Paul Kossoff or not - this in contrast to another reviewer who was pleased to hear them anyway.

Disc 2 is basically a sampler for the One World catalogue of 'official bootlegs' from John's sleeker, full band electric lounge style of the 80's and 90's - which are enjoyable, but out of place here alongside his earlier acoustic and experimental work, which is what Live At Leeds was all about.

So personally I wish they'd left well alone, as all the extra material does is dilute the impact of the original 6 tracks. I can't help thinking they'd have been better off giving the original, well-balanced 50 minute album the remastering treatment, if the original tapes are still extant.
