The Who – Live at Hull 1970

The day after The Who recorded their eponymous album Live at Leeds in February 1970, they played the City Hall in Hull. The tapes of this concert were restored, remixed and remastered in 2012 and released as a double CD in digipak packaging.

I went down to The Who’s sound archive and photographed the original 1970 3M Scotch tape boxes of the Hull recordings complete with worn box edges, hand-written Chinagraph scribbles and dates. With some nice typography, there was my cover. For the digipak inner I used my photos of the two tape reels underneath the plastic capstans that hold the two CD discs.
