Live albums


Hero Member
What are your 3 favorite live albums?  Mine are

Metallica, Live Sh*t, Binge and Purge
Queen, Live at Wembley '86
I always thought Pearl Jam's live stuff was better than their studio stuff... but I'll have to think about it.

Live Van Halen and AC DC is pretty great too..
Thin Lizzy - Live and Dangerous (I also like Live Life, but that maybe a european release only)
Ozzy - Tribute
The Who - Live at leeds
let me add to that:
Yessongs - Yes
even though everyone else here hates them, I think U2 is a pretty good live band.
Right now I'd say

Live at Carnegie Hall - SRV
Live at Woodstock - Jimi Hendrix
On The Night - Dire Straits

Honorable Mention:
Exit...Stage Left - Rush
Rush - Exit Stage Left
The Who - Live at Leeds


Cheap Trick - Live at Budokan!  (Come on - it's hilarious!)
Gary Moore - Blues Alive
Peter Frampton - Frampton Comes Alive
Eric Clapton - Unplugged
I’ll date myself but I wore holes in these Albums. 

Little Feet- Waiting For Columbus.  Worth the price of admission just to hear the extended version of Dixie Chicken/Tripe Face Boogie
Robin Trower- Live.  Robin and his band at the peak!
David Bromberg- How Late’ll Ya Play ‘til?  David has a great sense of humor and what a smoking band.

Iron Maiden: Live After Death
B. B. King: Live at the Regal
Magic Sam: Live

I know its an odd combination, but I'm an odd person.
I just got an R.E.M. concert from 1984 (on the new Reckoning Deluxe Edition) and downloaded a recent Iron and Wine concert that are very good, not sure how long they'll stay in the rotation. My favorite albums aren't usually live, but Live Rust gets played sometimes.
The Ramones ---It's Alive
Allman Brothers --- Fillmore EAst
Neil Young --- Live Rust
James Brown --- Live
The Band --- The Last Waltz
Old and in the Way --- Live

There are bunch others, but these spring to mind first since they influenced me.
