Sure, you can say Frampton or Cheap Trick, but the truth is the BEST live album is, of course, James Brown's "Live at the Apollo Volume II (Deluxe Edition)" ...followed very closely by James Brown's "Say It Live and Loud: Live in Dallas 08.26.68" - so there. UHH!

I saw James Brown Live in a smoky little club in Denver back in 1985 - no more than 200 people - he sang "Living in America" 3 1/2 times and threw off the cape 13 times - awesome.....

My favorite live album would have to be Pantera 101 Proof. Awesome live version of Cowboys From Hell.

Nirvana's MTV Unplugged was pretty damn good and I didn't even like the group till I heard that album.

I also think Billy Joel's Live from Russia album was very good and historically significant.

I forgot Neil Young's Live Rust.

There are also some unbelievable bootlegs out there of concerts by Tom Waits, Bob Dylan, and Elvis Costello, but I think only Dylan has had a "proper" live album release.

And my two favorite bootleg sources: Mr. Bungle and Ween.

I am glad to see that it only took two replies to get this one out, and good to see Nirvana Unplugged and Budakon. I was always a fan of "The Youth Are Getting Restless" by Bad Brains, who are awesome live. Also note "Live at Leeds" (Who) and um..."Boingo Alive"...

I've never really been a fan of live albums cause I don't think they really translate the actual feeling of being live at a concert, but I do love Pearl Jams "Live: On two legs" and the few bootlegs that I've had the good fortune to own(like Manical Clown said teres like 90 of em'), but I'm a HUGE Pearl Jam fan and that may make me biased.

Here are some of the ones I love:
Jeff Buckley-Mystery White Boy
Jimi Hendrix-Live At Woodstock
The Other Ones-The Strange Remain
Blink 182-The Mark,Tom,and Travis Show(The Enema Strikes Back)

That Pearl Jam:Live On Two Legs rocks! Red Mosquito is one of the best songs. The Led Zeppelin and Hendrix BBC Sessions Cd's are pretty damn good. Sublime-Stand By Your Van is a fun album.

Probably one of the most surprising, as far as I'm concerned: Underworld's Everything, Everything. I knew they were supposed to be a good live band, but it's just so much better than what I thought their music would sound like live.

Ah, but do you have the DVD? THAT is truly awesome and it gives you a real good idea of what they're like live. I've seen them 5 times (6 after April 26th in San Francisco) and the Everything, Everything DVD brings back good memories every time I watch it.

Man, when I saw the title of this thread, I was afraid that when I mentioned Frampton Comes Alive I'd get flamed. Should have had more faith in you guys than that.

Two other awesome live albums which are awesome are One For The Road by The Kinks and Sam Cooke Live At The Harlem Square Club, 1963.

Tarnish, I do believe that Elvis Costello's Live At The El Mocambo was given a full legit release by Ryko a few years ago, so that's a good start although as you say there are plenty of great boots of him live as well. (I wonder if anyone ever bootlegged his Spectacular Spinning Songbook show from Chicago--I was there, what a great show!)

I don't know if this counts, but I'm partial to both Woodstock and the Tibetan Freedom Concert 3 disc set. Also, the Who's Live at the Isle of Wight Festival is great to listen to when you are trying to figure out how to tell people they no longer have a job, but I no longer have to deal with the shit anymore.

Edit: Fuck, can't believe I forgot Spiritualized Live at the Royal Albert Hall CD, great fucking live set from one of the best groups ever.

This isn't technically a live album, more like a collection of rarities, but Tool's "Salival" disc is amazing. I'd also vote for Husker Du's "The Living End."

I'd have to go with Hypocrisy's "Destroys Wacken". It was recorded in '98 at the Wacken open air festival over in Holland, and it has all of their best tunes. Another great thing about it is that their vocalist/lead guitarist Peter Tgtgren is one hell of a producer (possibly the best in the death/black metal field), and this live album sounds relatively clear. Plus, there's four studio tracks at the end, one of which is quite excellent in itself.

Whew, hooray for being long-winded. Some other favorites are Nirvana's "MTV Unplugged", Led Zeppelin's "The Song Remains the Same", and John Coltrane's "Live in Seattle" (for obvious reasons).

Well, even though it's not out yet I'd like to pimp Our Lady Peace's new live album...still untitled...which is SUPPOSED to be out in May or June. I shill because I was at the show.

All shilling aside, I personally LOVE Frampton Comes Alive.

Nirvana's Unplugged is tremendous, but my fav is Neil Young's. The first half of the album is just Neil, his acoustic guitar, and his harmonica. It's beautiful. Neil Young is god.

When I was 14, Rush's A Show of Hands was on my turntable at least four times a week. Oooooh I think I'll reach over and pop the CD on right now ... aaahhhh that's the stuff. It just gets better and better as the years pass. I'll still be listening to it when I'm sucking back the prune juice and complaining about kids these days.

The Tragically Hip's Live Between Us captures the essence of a Hip show perfectly. The live version of "Scared" gives me goosebumps, no matter how many times I've heard it.

I have a limited edition LP of Stevie Ray Vaughn and Double Trouble Live at the El Mocambo in Toronto. It was supposed to be just for record company execs etc and has never had widespread commercial release (I found it in a used record store a few years ago). It shows Stevie at the height of his powers before the heroin problems kicked in and absolutely blows away the Live Alive album which was widely released.

I miss Stevie...
