Live At Leeds Deluxe Edition is a live album by John Martyn.
It was recorded at Leeds University on 13 February 1975.
Live At Leeds album was originally released as a six song vinyl album in 1975 and was then issued as a CD in 1992 with the same songs. In 2008, Live At Leeds & More was released which added a selection of live recordings from the 1980s and 1990s.
In 2010, the album was released in deluxe form to celebrate the 35th anniversary. This means that the entire concert and the rehearsal from the afternoon are now available to hear.
Fans of the original Live At Leeds release were surprised to hear that some of the songs they knew so well sounded different. It turns out that some of them didn’t come from the Leeds gig but other concerts in 1975.
