Favorite Classic Live Album - Some great albums recorded live

"Wings Over America" is by far my favorite live album. McCartney in his prime, awesome setlist and the best opening (Venus & Mars, Rockshow, Jet) medley in the history of live albums. Budokan a close second, Rush's "Exit Stage Left" comes in third (points off for audience fade in and out on each track- a major no-no for live albums. But the setlist and musicianship are impeccable).

No one pretends to know just why."

I recently got a boot of the Beatles' rooftop concert, but I haven't listened to it yet.

The rooftop concert is bittersweet....you can tell it's nearing the end. Have you seen the film "Let It Be"? In it you can see that they are drifting apart and finding it difficult to work together.

Howzabout Budokan the Complete Concert instead of the original Budokan?

Followed by:

Supertramp - Paris: amazing performances and a great overview of their career. Hard to find except on ebay.

Talking Heads - The Name of This Band is Talking Heads: also a great live retrospective of their early career.

Blue Oyster Cult - Extraterrestrial Live
See you at the red light...

Out of the options listed, I had to go with Budokan.

Other favorites of mine:

The Kinks - One for the Road
Led Zeppelin - How the West Was Won (this poll predates it, but it is far superior to Song Remains The Same)
UFO - Strangers in the Night

I forgot about The Kinks. That is a great live album. Like CT, they are a band that is a lot heavier in concert than on record.

My Faves...
CT - All the different Budokan CDs
Kinks - One for the Road
UFO - Strangers in the Night
Black Sabbath - Live Evil * I always thought it was interesting to hear Ronnie James Dio sing the classic Ozzy Sabbath stuff.
J Geils - Blow Your Face Out * The intro to Must of Got Lost is one of the greatest concert moments of all time.
Kiss - Alive 2 (excluding the studio tracks)
Y+T - Open Fire * Dave Meniketti defies logic as lead singer and lead guitarist.

Bye-bye, so long, farewell, bye-bye, so long, sayonara, bye-bye, au revoir, Auf Wiedersehen,

I just got a copy of Live In Paris. It is fairly good. It is a vinyl copy so I intend to transfer it to digital disc for convenience.

And of course The Beatles At The Hollywood Bowl. A great (re)package. That might have been the first live album I bought.
All things must pass
