This particular release is likely to appeal to those that attended the show and completist fans as opposed to casual ones.

Live In Leeds' is the latest release in the 'From The Vault' series of live concerts from The Rolling Stones archive. This performance is taken from their last concert on their 1982 European Tour to promote their 1981 'Tattoo You' album and was recorded at Roundhay Park in Leeds, England on 25 July.

This new 'Live...' release is available as a DVD+3LP vinyl set, a DVD+2CD edition as well as individual blu-ray and DVD offerings. As with the previous '...Vault' releases, the archive material has been carefully restored and the sound has been newly mixed by Bob Clearmountain for this first official release of the show; the audio on the DVD being available in Dolby Digital Stereo, Dolby Digital 5.1 and DTS Surround Sound. I listened to the DVD in Dolby Digital 5.1 and the sound was exceptional.

Not known at the time, but this would be the last live performance by the Stones for the next seven years and also the final ever performance of pianist Ian Stewart with the band, as he sadly passed away three years later. The set-list, as even commented on by Jagger himself, was unusual and features one of the band's longest renditions of 'You Can't Always Get What You Want'. As was the way with most bands during the eighties, the set contained a large number of new songs from the album that they were promoting at the time; half the 'Tattoo You' album is included in the twenty-four song set. Other highlights include 'Under My Thumb', 'Beast of Burden', 'Tumbling Dice', 'Miss You' and the usual fantastic set closers 'Honky Tonk Woman', 'Brown Sugar', 'Start Me Up', 'Jumpin' Jack Flash' and '(I Can't Get No) Satisfaction'.

The early eighties fashion is amusing to see, particularly with Jagger's bizarre attire; Keith Richards and Ronnie Wood look incredibly young; Charlie Watts looks his ageless self and Bill Wyman's deadpan stare throughout the whole show is hilarious.

This show was held a few months before I started attending concerts, although I have to admit that it is only in the latter years that I have really come to appreciate what a phenomenal band that The Rolling Stones were and still are to this date. For the latter reason these '...Vault' series of DVDs have allowed me to see what I have missed over the years from the comfort of my own living room. That said, I would admit that this particular release is likely to appeal to those that attended the show and completist fans as opposed to casual ones.
