Live at Leeds is a live album by John Martyn. He independently released this album himself in an initial run of 10,000. The working title was "Ringside Seat", photos of Martyn and bassist Danny Thompson in a boxing ring were taken for a prospective cover, though never used. It was recorded on 13 February 1975 (the sleeve incorrectly states October), at Leeds University.

The re-released version on Voiceprint/One World includes five bonus tracks ("My Baby Girl", "You Can Discover", "So Much in Love With You", "Clutches" and "Mailman") from the show, including the ones Paul Kossoff of Free guested on.

A 2CD Deluxe Edition compiled and researched by John Hillarby was released in 2010 by Universal Music.
