Going through my live albums last night I suddenly stopped to think what would be in my list of best live albums ever.
For a start off Live at Leeds - The Who would have to be in there along with Live and Dangerous- Thin Lizzy and of course Cropredy Capers!!!! Ric-Full Gerry-Full Simon-Full Peggy-Full Chris-Full
Any more for any more???

'Bless Its Pointed Little Head' Jefferson Airplane.  'Live Dead'  Grateful Dead.  'Get yer ya yas out!'  Rolling Stones.
and as for Fairport, I nominate 'House Full' and 'The Cropredy Box' (especially the first disc)......

Career Moves - Loudon Wainwright, really has the feel of being there

Live Dead - takes me back, and back and back. . .

Cropredy 1992 - especially for the Robert Plant contribution

Bob Dylan - Budokan - because I saw that line up at Earls Court and Blackbushe (anyone else there?) and it stays with me.

Actually, I've just been listening to Off the Desk. I love it.

There is only one contender. The CD version of The Who Live at Leeds. I don't know how they dared to miss so many good tracks off the original.

The Band - The Last Waltz.  Certainly the best concert movie

Poco - Deliverin' - puts a smile on your face

The Who - Live at Leeds - no question

Show of Hands - RAH 2001 - great memories of a great evening

Neil Young - Live Rust - wish I'd been there

Jackson Browne - Running on Empty

Play it everywhere especially if you have the feedback extravaganza that is Arcweld. Follow with Live Rust so everyone knows where it all came from. Then Year of the Horse so that people get a good feel for what can happen when it is all taken to excess.

Of course you may have to move house after all that.

Best Live album ever would have to be John Martyn's Live at Leeds, why does Leeds have to provide such great live experiences.

Agree with Jim the bootleg is so much better than the rereleased album it's a monster, mistakes and all.

Honourable mentions to Space Ritual and the Ian MacNabb thing with members of Crazy Horse playing on it.

Most assuredly - or at least as "live" as "Live and Dangerous" is live - which means....................

Mind you, the little red light on the box isn't live any more !!

I heard a great radio interview with Hank Marvin once during which he explained that inclement weather had precluded an actual performance of Jean-Michel Jarre's last record, on which he had played. Not wanting to disappoint the assembled throng of Londoners keen to experience the full grandeur of JMJ in full flow they simply played the master tape of the album through the PA while the barely-visible specks of musicians busied themselves among the lights, lasers and flashbombs on stage. There was a brief pause before the DJ enquired "Didn't he release a live album of that gig...?". "Ummm, yes, he did actually" replied the strat-bothering Jehovah's witness quietly....  Shocked  Grin
