    For Rockabilly fans I recommend Ronnie Dawson's Live at the Continental Club. I should add that unfortunately the CD is out of print and getting expensive.

    Lot of good stuff posted
    The live album I've bought more than once is Tribute from Ozzy
    Randy was dead when they put it together, so I doubt there is much overdubbing.

    My buddies older brother was a big metal influence on us.
    Riding around in his car we often heard No Sleep Til Hammersmith and Unleashed in the East.

    Dire Straits' Alchemy claimed there were no overdubs in the liner notes. Quite plausible as the album certainly has a raw edge to it.

    I was heartbroken when I found out how much of Stop Making Sense, the film and the record, was overdubbed.

    Have you picked up the extension of It's Too Late to Stop Now Yet? All three concerts in full. Just Extraordinary. I've been a fan since I was a kid, and I finally saw Van live this year. I can die in peace now...

    Led zeppelin bbc recordings, Page's playing his usual sloppy self but its better than the other "live" (overdubbed) recordings of the band.

    Ya know, I haven't listened to it in a long time... But Live Bullet seriously kicked a ton of ass.

    Also, never released as an album, but it doesn't come much better than this

    There really are some great live albums out there. But they say go with what comes to mind first. And "Before The Flood" was that first thought. I played the grooves off the vinyl in my 70's college days.

    I don't know how live certain albums are and I generally don't think about such things, but a few favorite albums that come immediately to mind are:
    Crosby & Nash- Live
    Vertical Horizon- Live Stages
    Sting- Bring On The Night
    Sting- ...All This Time
    Grateful Dead- One From The Vault
    Grateful Dead- Live Without A Net
    Bill Evans Trio- Waltz For Debbie
    Keith Jarrett Trio- Tokyo '96

    Seems to be a different, good energy to these that isn't captured on the studio-recorded counterparts, if studio-recorded.

    The original "Live Dead" Grateful Dead album from 1969. I love Europe '72, but it's doctored. I don't think "Hundred Year Hall" (a show in Germany from that tour) is.
    The Band's "Rock of Ages" is incredible as is the "Live at the Academy of Music" expanded version.
    Poco "DeLIVErin'"
    Silly Wizard "Live Wizardry" is a favorite Celtic album.
    Jefferson Airplane "Bless it's Pointed Little Head"
    Quicksilver Messenger Service "Happy Trails" (Side one anyway)
    Merle Haggard and the Strangers "Live in Muskogee"
    Joni Mitchell "Shadows and Light"
