Two non rock ones:

Weavers- 1963 Live at Carnegie Hall
both simply astonishing capture of the hall and audience.
Long recommended on the Absolute Sound list

i do like live albums as opposed to studio because to me they seem to have more "air" to them-don't ask me to explain

in no particular order
Little Feat-waiting for columbus
Deep Purple-made in japan
Genesis-seconds out
Guess Who-live at the paramount

I will never forget...I had your Number 3 above recorded on VHS back in 1984 I believe and loved it. I lent it to a friend without pushing in the little tabs on the top of the tape which prevented recording over it.
Got it back and his Dad recorded Geraldo Rivera's special entitled "Cocaine in America".
*** me!
I was devastated.
Had to wait literally a generation to get it on cd in 1999 as you mention.
Great live production.

Yep, that's the problem.

+1 for Hendrix (Band of Gypsys) and Wes (pretty much anything of his that doesn't have a string section!)

What about "live in the studio" recordings? Why do we need a big slobbering crowd for it to be good?


Joe Jackson had a couple of albums, Big World and Body and Soul. I think one was recorded in a club and the other was in a hall. I'm not sure how much over dubbing or re-work was done, but the essence of the recording was 'live' off the stage (with no audience).

Night and Day was recorded full-band-off-the-floor too...it is also very good...
