Favorite 5 Live Albums


21KO

Recommended Posts

Found a thread from '03, but I think it's time for a new one..

Order due to change based on mood, but here's mine:

1: Wings Over America If anyone has a real Master tape DVD issue of this, and not just a VHS dub, let me know. It's incredible.

2: KISS Alive The Fearsome Foursome at their finest. That explosion at the beginning of "Deuce" :thumbsup:

3: Live And Dangerous Is there a better rock bassist/singer/songwriter than Phil? No.

4: The Last Waltz "It Makes No Difference" is so good it's scary.

5: The Song Remains the Same "Does anybody remember laughter?" And Jimmy in all his wonderful sloppiness.

Honorable Mention: Tribute Just cause it's Randy

1. The Rolling stones: Get your Ya-Ya's out. Short and awesome.

2. Clapton: Just one Night: recorded in Japan at the height of country/blues Clapton. Great stuff.

3. Over the Rhine: Changes Come: mellow, modern alternative-folk duo. Karin Berquist's voice is heaven.

4. Cowboy Junkies: 200 More Miles. Just at their best--and it's 2 discs! Near 2nd from this band: the Open Road.

5. Bob Marley and the Wailers: Live at the Roxy. None of that frat-boy reggae here: disc 1 is protest songs galore, and disc 2 features a 25-minute jam on three songs.

Honorable mention: Social Distortion, Live at the Roxy. Cool stuff, although Mike Ness's patter comes on a little too much-- sounds like he's trying too hard. The songs rock, though, and cover their entire career.

I don't like live albums, with one exception.

The MC5 - Kick out the Jams

There's probably other exceptions, but most all live albums are completely gratuitous additions to a bands catalogue.

the roots come alive isn't. roots fans are patiently awaiting the next live album that was promised. :mad:
