Leeds United: The Wilderness Years 1975-1988
This fanzine-style series of films charts the less celebrated era between the Glory Years of Don Revie, and the renaissance under Howard Wilkinson. It is not a Greatest Hits compilation, but a look at the Good, the Bad & the Ugly of following Leeds United from Paris in 1975, through the management of Armfield, Stein, Adamson, Clarke, Gray and Bremner. Commencing in the days before domestic vhs recordings, these films aim to fill the gap in commercial video releases, using contemporary music and rare film footage. It is not a commercial venture but a fan project, a labour of love and a cathartic journey.
Still on the lookout for video of matches from 1980 onwards. Happy to trade, swap, digitise so we all end up seeing these in best quality. In particular, does anyone have copies of the 1980s Telvista match recordings?
