Live Albums


Recommended Posts

I always liked this one:


Kicks serious ass. Especially Psy Power, Levitation & Shot Down In The Night.

Yeah, me too. You can hear more of that gig on the 3-disc edition of 'Levitation'.

Some more great live albums....

An excellent list, zepscoda! Every one of those choices gets a regular play on my stereo.

Surprised nobody has mentioned another perennial on the list of greatest live albums: Otis Redding "Live at the Whisky a Go Go".

I know Major Major had his detractors but he's right about Judas Priest's "Unleashed in the East"...it's a fucking beast of a live album.

How about Blue Oyster Cult - Some Enchanted Evening?

Another one I played the dickens out of in the 70s. Which brings up an interesting point...Blue Oyster Cult had several good live albums, each representing a particular period of their career:

"On Your Feet or On Your Knees" - early Richard Meltzer influenced years.

"Some Enchanted Evening" - classic "Don't Fear the Reaper" - "Godzilla" middle period.

"Extraterrestrial Live" - "Burnin' for You" later years.

Which one do you prefer?
