Or should I say "Who", the Hull show from 1970 is being released in the 40th anniversary Leeds super-deluxe set.

Luke, any inside info on this? I know the whole "the bass didn't record" thing has been beat to death. I interpret that as, "It didn't record sufficiently for 1970 technology to release so let's use Leeds instead." These days, computer tech plays a huge role in recording as well as audio forensics. There have been some pretty impressive clean-ups done.

Not sure what was or wasn't done to "fix" the bass, nor how extensive the problem was, other than it was *apparently* only during the first song or songs. I guess Bob Pridden has done (is doing?) the mixing, and Jon Astley didn't know the specifics.

Also, as far as Leeds go, Jon indicated he'd like to re-do Leeds, as he doesn't like the sound on the DE, but he has not been given the opportunity. I would assume such a re-do would just involve mastering, sequencing and possibly less editing of banter, and that the mixing (including overdubs) would not change. Whatever the case, it apparently isn't happening here, so I wouldn't hold out for it anytime soon.

So the Leeds discs are the same ones from the DE? :(

Well, now they might not be. Seems as if it is still up in the air.
