Notable albums

Live at Leeds

Released in 1970, Live at Leeds is the most famous live album performed by The Who. The album was recorded from a concert held at the University of Leeds as part of a two leg gig. The preferred recording was from the second night at Hull, however the bass line failed to record so the Leeds recording was used instead. It is thought by many to be the best live rock album of all time[3] and is included in the book 1001 Albums You Must Hear Before You Die.[4] The Album made it to #3 in the UK charts and #4 in the US charts.

Live at Leeds

'Live at Leeds' is a John Martyn album. He independently released this album himself in an initial run of 10,000. Recorded February 13, 1975 (the sleeve incorrectly states October), at Leeds University, this is an essential snapshot of John Martyn at what is possibly his peak.

London 0, Hull 4

The Housemartins debut album, London 0 Hull 4, released in 1986 refers to the band's home town in the form of a sports result. The title may have been a jibe at London centrism, and Whitehall itself, given that the band were known Marxists, this wouldn't have been out of context. The album made it to #3 in the UK charts.

Fog on the Tyne

Lindisfarne's 1971 album Fog on the Tyne was named after Newcastle's river, the Tyne and the morning fog cover which it is widely associated. The highly acclaimed album made #1 in the UK album charts.

Five Bridges

The Nice's 1970 album Five Bridges was named for the classical-jazz-rock piece "The Five Bridges Suite" which occupied the first side of the LP and was written about the UK city of Newcastle and its then five bridges on the River Tyne.
