I would die to have Gilmour would show up at the July 2012 yankee stadium show and play his comfortably numb solo

bought 'The Who Live at Leeds' last week, fantastic, hadn't heard it for ~ 30years.
(kicks zepplin's butt)

But they put all these 'extras' on it - I just want to hear the original album, in the original order - starting to hate remixes

The one to get is the bootleg with everything on it, the singles and rockers section and the Tommy section, mainly because it hasn't been messed around with to 'improve' the sound quality. Raw and dynamic or what. I saw Zep and The Who in 1970 at the same university venue within weeks of each other; both were fantastic but the general agreement was that The Who were best at that moment in rock history..... others may disagree but they weren't there.

I also dislike all the "extras" they add to albums now. Most of this junk belongs on the cutting room floor. I just delete the added tracks. Also original or re-released vinyl is a good way to get closer to the original sound we remember.

Also, some of our recollections are clouded by the smoke of the times.

Let's also not forget that back then, our hearing was most likely a bit better than it is now.

I think the extras are a great addition for the most part. ie. Graham Parker 'Squeezing Out Sparks' and Devo 'Are We Not Men?' are at least two that I have with complete live versions of the tracks... single-only releases and film tracks that weren't on a band LP... demos and outtakes that offer a fresh perspective... Some of the material is fitting of "B-side" and I don't particularly admire the way some of it is marketed (think SRV), where the "extra" is the only reason for the album's existence. I do especially like the "buy the CD, we provide the extras via a web link" model.
What annoys me more is the "covert" remixed reissues. Fleetwood Mac 'Tusk' is the culprit that always comes to mind.
