Live At Leeds And More

The Bottom Line:

Useless compilation of Voiceprint stuff

CD1 is the extended Voiceprint releases with the bad sounding bonus tracks.
CD2 is a haphazard compilation of One World (Voiceprint) live releases.
8 page booklet included with uninteresting sleevenotes by Drew Heatley.

"All tracks issued under license from Voiceprint."
"Design at Mainartery featuring original cover."

Bless This Weather is misspelled on the cover;
Rather Be The Devil is falsely credited to John Martyn;
Mailman goed uncredited.
Big Muff is credited to John Martyn only;
Yes We Can to Allen Toussaint only;
Beverley is misspelled Beverly;
Anna goes uncredited.

CD1 is white, CD2 pinkish.
The sleeve design is rather disrespectful the original itself being a pastiche.
Strange bonus disk with substandard sound, with the exception of the two Live tracks.

So all in all this is a rather sloppy release. Go for the original Live At Leeds and a complete live recording.
