The live ones by Zep and Maiden are by far the best. Apart from them, Queen. At Wembley mainly. Guns n Roses live era cd is a great listen. Obviously mixed concerts.

Not counting HTWWW and TSRTS remastered with the additional songs:

I cannot really put these in an order

Pink Floyd - Umma Gumma - the live disc from Mothers in Birmingham June 1969.  Astronomy Dominae and the end of Saucerful of Secrets alone are worth the price of admission.  

Yes - Progeny - Highlights from 72.  So much better than the original Yessongs

Deep Purple - the bonus live disc that comes with the remastered live Concerto for Group and Orchestra.  It has only Hush, Wring that Neck, and Child in Time, but the performance and sound are incredible.  The sound mix is much, much better than Made in Japan.  What the heck - the whole Concerto for Group and Orchestra is amazing as well so I will include the entire 2 disc CD here.  It is so well recorded.  Both the entire orchestra and the band come through very well. 

Pink Floyd - Live at Pompeii.  Just this version of Echoes alone would make my top five live albums.  I much prefer it to the studio version. 

Yesshows - it has live Gates of Delirium,  Going for the One, and Parallels

My love of prog rock shows with...

Genesis - Seconds Out

Emerson, Lake & Palmer - Welcome Back My Friends.....

Porcupine Tree - Octane Twisted (The 15 minutes that is "Russia On Ice/The Pills I'm Taking" is sublime)

Radiohead - I Might Be Wrong

and very surprisingly,

Goo Goo Dolls - Live in Buffalo (even if just for the version of 'Two Days In February')

I should also have mentioned

Four Way Street - especially Carry On - one of the coolest four guitar jams ever recorded

Renaissance - Live at Carnegie Hall and British Tour '76.  So much great material, such amazing vocals, and Jon Camp on the bass.  Fantastic

Great band at their peak. My favorite live album. Roger sounds fantastic.

Emerson, Lake & Palmer - Welcome Back My Friends.....

Had the triple LP and saw ELP in Quad sound on that BSS Tour.

Hoedown, Tarkus, & Piano Improvisations are my favorites from it.

CHICAGO AT CARNEGIE HALL (1971) A 4-disc set with a gigantic color poster of the band (Zeppelin, were you listening???)

South California Purples, Beginnings, & Fancy Colours are standouts.

GRAND FUNK RAILROAD - CAUGHT IN THE ACT (1975)

Footstompin' Music ~ The entire song intro on the LP, not included on the CD versions!!!!

Shinin' On ~ Great Light show in concert

The Loco-Motion ~ Just a lot of Fun !!

Black Licorice / The Railroad ~ Great back-to-back hard rocking songs!!
