On red vinyl. A definite contender.
These two aren’t bad either...
And this one of course
3 Dog Night Live at the Forum.
Wings Over America
Frampton Comes Alive
Grand Funk Railroad Live
This album rules too.
It’s sounds like The Stooges playing 80’s hardcore.
Looks like most of the classics have been listed here already. And the market seems like it continues to overflow with new lost recordings and copyright-driven official bootlegs, so it’s too expensive and time consuming to take it all in and find new favorites. So I’ll just put in a plug for the Rolling Stones’ Love You Live double album. It’s no Ya Yas, and it smacks of overdubbing, but the set list is unique enough and the Jagger ad libs between songs are cheeky. It’s also the last Stones album that drops the S from Keith Richards ( but there’s still no S in Burt Bacharach).
Allmans at Fillmore East has been one of my favorites for a long time.
I can’t believe no one has mentioned Iron Maiden yet!!!
Yeah, that's a doozy
Queen - Live Killers
Cheap Trick - Live at Budokan
Teenage Head - Queen Street Teddyboys (bootleg)
Three of the most important live albums from my formative years.
My vinyl of "Take no prisoners" was adorned with the sticker "This album is offensive". Classic. I loved it.
RIP Lou and David.
My choice(s) has already been covered. What I would add is that there are members who I could be room mates with and others that would ultimately result in murder/suicide.
Lots of great albums listed already.
I'd have to add BB King's "Live at the Cook County Jail", which he considered his beat album ever.
Then, there's "Live Dead" and "Europe '72", by the Grateful Dead, not to mention the millions of concert tapes made by the fans. They were one of the only groups that actively encouraged fans to tape their shows.
To top it off, there are four live Blues Brothers albums.
Easy. Lucinda Williams, Austin City Limits 1998 ( her earlier show is good, too). Amazing guitar arrangements on this. Most of the show is from the Car Wheels album, which was known to grave taken many years and takes as Lucinda obsessed over sounds and arrangements.
One guitar player is Kenny Vaughan on MusicMan Albert Lee, Gibson Chet Atkins, among others. His playing on this one comes closest to the kind of guitar player I strive to be.
Other excelle t guitar player is John Jackson, he and Kenny pair together so well, more like the Stones than the typical lead / rhythm roles; he plays a Gretsch and a bunch of Fenders, with some slide.
77 Cornell, Scarlet Fire is just magical. Ive never heard Phil play like that. Europe 72 is a good call too.
Cousin Kenny is awesome.
Along with Austin City Limits, PBS offers many other live music programs, from rock, country and bluegrass, to classical. Chicago's WTTW 11 has Soundstage, and there's Bluegrass Underground, from a cave in Eastern Tennessee (I'd love to hear the real acoustics there) among other programs.
