The Who – “Live At Leeds” Recording Location
The Refectory, University of Leeds, West Yorkshire, England.
The Who’s landmark 1970 live album, Live At Leeds, was recorded at the University Refectory located on the University of Leeds main campus in Leeds, West Yorkshire, England. Recorded on February 14, 1970, the album is routinely cited as the best live rock recording of all time.
The venue, the University Refectory, was named a national landmark and Pete Townshend and Roger Daltrey were on hand 36 years later in 2006 when a plaque was dedicated to commemorate the Valentines Day concert and album.
