    Any style, any genre.

    Credit where credit is due... I got the idea for this thread from @ArticWhite due to his post in another thread...

    Here are a few of my favorites:

    Rolling Stones, Get Yer Ya-Yas Out
    Allman Brothers, Live at the Fillmore East
    Cheap Trick, At Buddokan
    Peter Frampton, Comes Alive
    Johnny Cash, At Folsom Prison
    Dwight Yoakum, Dwight Live
    Little Feat, Waiting for Columbus
    Ralph Towner, Solo Concert


    Don't want to take all the low hanging fruit.. I imagine @ArticWhite has an opinion here too! :twisted:o_O:lol:

    Live Bootleg Aerosmith. It actually sounds live to me.

    Live at Leeds. Already mentioned above. For good reason.

    Irish Tour 74. Rory Gallagher. Even better is the Only in it for the music boot.

    Rock n Roll Animal by Lou Reed. Hunter and Wagner.


    Cheers,
    Geoff

    I have to agree with Roger Daltry----I like "Live at Hull" much better than "Live at Leeds."

    I’ve been a huge fan of live albums my whole life. Many of my favorites have also been mentioned, but here goes...

    Love You Live—The Rolling Stones: Everyone always mentions Ya Yas, but this is a sentimental favorite for me. It was the first Stones album I bought. Three quarters of this album is off their 75 tour, the first with Ron Wood. The other quarter of the album is the really good stuff, recorded at a nightclub in Toronto as the group awaited Keith’s sentencing on a heroin bust shortly after they arrived in town. Another highlight is Woody’s solo on “You Can’t Always Get What You Want” — one of my favorite solos.

    Allman Brothers Live at SUNY Stonybrook, 1971: The band perseveres through some early technical difficulties to deliver a blistering set that’s arguably better than the Fillmore recording. Best live band of all time? They’ve got my vote.

    Derek & the Dominos, Tampa, 12/1/70: the sound quality is abysmal, but if you can get past that, the interplay between Clapton and Duane transcends. This is, unfortunately, the only document of the two performing live together. Definitely worth a listen.

    Crosby Stills Nash and Young—Fillmore East, 1970: This one is significantly better than Four Way Street, if you can find it.
