Live Albums


Recommended Posts

I'm sitting here tonight with my new record One More From The Road by Lynyrd Skynyrd (the original pre-crash lineup) and wondering how a great album like this was out there for so long and I never listened to it before. So if you would share some of your favorites live albums that aren't by Led Zeppelin or Frampton Comes Alive or Made In Japan (Deep Purple) or something predictable like that. I prefer live and would like to check out some new (to me) things if you got some.

Such an underrated album.

Beyond The Universe has a killer solo, and I believe Rick still uses the "wish we could play all night long for you guys, but we've only got time for ONE... MORE... SONG!" line as he winds up with a smoking rendition of Rock N Roll Hootchie-Koo where he even breaks down into You Really Got Me for a minute.

Fantastic live album.

To this day, I love this album........the tunes from Mob Rules & Heaven and Hell are great as studio recordings, but are so much better live........


I love the Dio era of Sabbath and I consider Ronnie James Dio the grestest and most consistent metal vocalist .... ever...

But, I never really liked the way he sang some of the Ozzy era material..

NIB IRON MAN Paranoid BLACK SABBATH... something didn't quite fit..

I never really cared for the way Vinny Appice drummed some of Bill Ward's parts either.

Bill used to swing... Vinny is like a load of bricks... great, just different...

I much preferred when they called it Heaven and Hell and only played Dio era stuff.
