Late 2002 Turning Point Records tuning in on the HQ vinyl vogue by releasing a double vinyl album containing the original Live At Leeds on four sides of 180 grams vinyl. The sleeve was a triple folding one, containing two albums, a 12 page booklet with a biography and discography by John Hillarby and a good deal of often unreleased photo material. Stories were roughly based on the Sunshine Boys Tour program.

The whole thing was a bit of a strange operation as not the original master tapes were used; the Voiceprint CD master served as source material (fortunately without the bonus tracks). Also the vinyl was pressed in Italy and people who contributed to the project never got paid. This being said it is still a nice item, especially for people who love turning sides on their record player. Retail price was about 15 pounds.
