The Who | Live at Leeds (1970)

I'm not usually a big fan of live albums but one can't just dismiss "The Who". I mistakenly tried listening multiple times to the Special 40th anniversary edition of this on Spotify which turned out to be a massive opus of multiple concerts. (I particularly have no interest in listening to the entire Tommy rock opera.) Anyway, paired down to something closer to the original ~ 14 song playlist the Live at Leeds album becomes much more approachable (and enjoyable). 

This live album captures the spontaneity on unique character of live performance.
