    I love live music on record - a great tradition (Neville Bros spring to mind).

    Anyway, I was listening to 'Rock and Roll Animal', and wondered what else might be on the discerning listener's list.

    tdr1nka Taking the biscuit

    Off the top of my head I'd have to go for either; Sam Cook - Live @ Harlem Sq. 1963, or Deep Purple - Made In Japan.
    There are plenty more but I'm off to bed and don't need to be rummaging thru my records at this time on a Monday morning.
  3. AC/DC - If You Want Blood.
    Television - The Blow Up (full of mistakes and off key singing but a really atmospheric and energetic album).

    Ac/dc Ffs?
  5. Great band, especially the early stuff. Most of their studio albums were recorded live, effectively.

    tdr1nka Taking the biscuit

    I'm with RT on the AC/DC call, a great rhythm & blues band until the untimely death of singer Bonn Scott, admittedly taking a lot of his cues from The Sensational Alex Harvey Band, to the last.
    Died just down the road from here in fact.....

    Belvedere, Kent.
    and I'm with tdr1nka on Made in Japan. I got a 3cd set of each nights live performance and there's one bit where Gillan laughs when Blackmore fluffs the intro to Smoke on the Water!

    My favourite recent live CD is Volkerball by Rammstein....also great to see live. Gets a bit hot though.
  8. Andy in Sig

    Andy in Sig Vice President in Exile

    Rory Gallagher - Live in Europe and Irish Tour '74
    Thin Lizzy - Live and Dangerous
    Ten Years After did a great live double but I can't remember what it was called.
    The Who Live At Leeds.
    Stones - Get Yer YaYas Out
  9. Renard

    Renard Guest

    Bob Marley live at the Lyceum
  10. Lau have a live recording coming out in late spring, and I can't wait to hear it - I couldn't get to the recording in Edinburgh before xmas because I'd been in hospital...I reckon it will be awesome.

    My favourite live album would have to be Rank from Mozzer and Co.

    Agree with votes for 'Live & Dangerous' (Lizzy) & 'Get Your YaYas Out' (Stones). As I kid, I remember listening to Peter Frampton's 'Frampton Comes Alive' and enjoying it. I like Magazine's ponderous 'Play' too.

    Built To Spill - Cortez The Killer (Neil Young cover & very long!)

    RATM - Bullet In The Head (b-side of the single with same title)
  15. Buzzcocks - Encore du pain is great!!
