Fave Live Albums

I don't get the "life changing" or "affirming" feelings from live albums that some members seem to experience.

I generally don't like live albums at all.

Most to me are utter rubbish and they just sound too distant, or unbalanced in their levels......I dunno, I'm just not convinced about them.

If I want to actually hear a band live.....I'll go and see them.

I've owned two live albums in my life.

1) A Phish album which was god-awful and the band sounded and acted like a bunch of idiots.

2) Delicate Sound of Thunder by Pink Floyd.....now THAT was not too bad.

Dire Straits Alchemy, fantastic audio experience and I love Terry Williams’ drumming. His kit was mad, huge rack toms, must have been 14, 15, 16.

John Scofield Pick Hits LIve. Quintessential Dennis.
Thanks for this one! Although I know every single note from the Scofield albums with Dennis on drums I was not aware of this one!

Have to add here two:

Peter Gabriel Secret World Live with Manu Katche on drums - the best band PG ever had for me.

Sting Bring on the Night (Live in Paris) with Omar Hakim on drums - also an incredible good band!

The first live album that got me hooked is 'Live Wood' by Paul Weller.

Some sublime playing by Steve White throughout.

I played along to that to death. No overdubs also like some 'live' records.

The first live album I bought was Buddy Rich Big Swing Face. The next was Zappa's Roxy and Elsewhere. Both are still on my top five/desert albums list.
