Your favorite "Live" album

Unread postby Larvell Blanks » Fri Mar 26, 2010 3:09 pm

Sure I stole the idea from WNCX but this board has been a little slow lately.

What is your favorite(s) live album you listen to?

Kiss Alive makes my honorable mention as it was one of the first albums I bought

My top 5 (in no particular order)
Little Feat - Waiting for Columbus
Neil Young-Live Rust
MC5 - Kick out the Jams
U2 - Under a blood red sky
Lou Reed - Rock and Roll Animal

Honorable mention
any of the Pearl Jam live cd's released (25 of them)
J Geils - Blow your face out
Rush - Exit... stage left
Nirvana - Unplugged
Foghat - Live
Galley Boys are slop on top of a so-so burger and a bun you coulde get from a Covneninet food mart generic pack. They the Antoine Joubert of burgers; soft, sloppy, oozing grease and cheap sauce and extremely overrated by a biased fan base. Proof that if you throw enough cheap sauce shit on a burger you still can't overcome the lame burger. -JB

Pearl Jam's May 20, 2006 bootleg from the Q is easily number one. The Foo Fighters Skin and Bones isn't bad. There's an awesome version of Best of You on that one.

I'm going to count it because I can, Incubus's Live at Red Rocks DVD is quite good.

I'll second that one for nostalgia...

As far as mainstream (studio) live albums go:

-Aerosmith: Bootleg
-Alice In Chains: Unplugged
-Jimmy Buffett: Feeding Frenzy
-Eagles: Live
-J Geils: Blow Your Face Out
-Tom Petty: Pack Up The Plantation
-Michael Stanley Band: Stagepass
-Dave Matthews band: Listener Supported
-Iron Maiden: Live After Death
-Talking Heads: Stop Making Sense
-Bruce Springsteen: Live In NYC

Got way too many bootlegged copies of shows that have better setlists than those above

I'm not sure how it can be anything else

Absolutely the best album in one of the top 5 catalogs of all time (and that is underrating it; top 2 or 3 is more honest).

I just listened to Throwing Copper a couple of days ago - how wierd is that? I have it on an USB hard drive and randomly picked it to listen to while working.

I am surprised Frampton comes alive hasn't been mentioned. Not on my top 5 but was massivley popular back in the day.

My fav? Rust never sleeps by Neil Young wore that mother out when it came out.

Other good ones?
Allman Brothers - at Fillmore East
The Who - Live at Leeds
The Doors - Absolutely Live

Epic epic epic Morrison and the only Doors piece anyone would ever need to own

..and if Live at Leeds isn't on anyone's list its becasue you never heard it. It puts Majic Bus in the Top 10 of R&R songs, imlessthanho

Yeah, I saw Live in concert in Columbus in 95 and they did the whole Throwing Copper album...it was a great concert.

As for live concert albums....The Who Live at Leeds is easily my favorite I love the live version of The Magic Bus.

Many great selections with which I agree. Surprised no one has mentions Allman Brothers Live at Fillmore East. One of the best of that bands records of all time, way better than most of what they did in the studio.

Although Kiss Alive and Neil Rust Live Rust are up there I have to go with:

Bob Seger: Live Bullet

You had the Nutbush City Limits, Katmandu, the connected Travelin' Man~Beautiful Loser track and of course Turn the Page.

I realize he didn't have the massive national following that Springsteen did, but I throw up an old Seger CD before I will The River. Eventually it got old and he faded into the sunset but there are some great tunes out there by Seger. This Live album was actually widely praised and released at a time when he started to get big with Night Moves.

Doors always did a great job at covering a wide range of shit. Densmore did a killer job with Bo's synchopation on that joint, so did Ray & Robbie coming in.

For most of their stuff, if the Doors came out today, they'd be fresh still.
