Roger Daltrey reckons the show recorded either before or after that gig, ‘Live at Hull’ is the better recording.

The band wanted to release the Hull City Hall gig but there was a cock up with the recording. When they came to listen to it the bass track was missing from the first three or four songs. They released the Hull gig a few years back with the bass from the Leeds show cleverly edited in to those songs. It's pretty good too.

It’s Alive - The Ramones 

I would include Live & Dangerous by Thin Lizzy but there’s a bit too much studio work involved. Great album all the same

Two of my favourites right there. It's Alive is one of the few live albums that really captures a band in their pomp.

There's probably a lot more studio/post-production work involved with most live albums than their artists would care to admit.

But the best live album, in the sense that it captures the band's live energy best, is Motorhead's No Sleep 'til Hammersmith.

Superb album.

Lemmy also features on one of the other truly great live albums, Hawkwind's Space Ritual.

Dire Straits - Alchemy Live

Rush - Exit Stage Left, Rush in Rio, R30 and others

Metallica - S&M Live

 

The "Live Sh*t: Binge & Purge" collection is very good, especially the set from the Damaged Justice tour.

Some good choices already on here , i might add

Dr Feelgood   -  Stupidity

Now that is good. I also like the post-Wilko "As It Happens" live album.

AC/DC's "If you want blood" would be another one for my list.

I love live albums. 

Motorhead's No Sleep Til Hammersmith has, quite rightly, been mentioned, but a couple of their later live efforts are mammoth as well, Everything Louder... and 25 years at Brixton.

Yeah but on this one, Tony Visconti admits he did a hell of a lot in the studio, moreso than was warranted in the end (if I’m remembering his autobiography right)

One thing that we used to do in the early-mid 80’s was get tapes of bands through the mixing desk. Could be hit and miss but many were fantastic and I’m sure I still have a bunch in the attic somewhere. Got a Metallica one from 1982 that’s really good. Dave Mustaine is still in the band and Four Horsemen is still called Mechanix at that point. (Which appears on Megadeths first LP)

There are trader websites, where these things are now shared digitally. Some are legal, some are not. Audience bootlegs, soundboard recordings, recorded broadcasts etc.

Unsurprisingly, Grateful Dead fans are very active in this area, as the band has always encouraged fan recording.

We used to send them to each other in the post. I aren’t going to knock modern sharing platforms but you can’t match the excitement of getting a demo or live tape in the post in those days.

Just getting on the bus to use all my pocket money and saved up school dinner money to buy an album was equally buzzing.....

Reading the album sleeve, talking with your mates about the album cover and how good the guitarist is etc.....

Downloading is fab.... i get it....

But, i loved vinyl days of my youth.

My fav live album.... even that is difficult... perhaps strangers in the night, live dates and live and dangerous are my top three.... ask me tomorrow and it'll be different

Slade were amazing at Donington in 81 when they stepped in at short notice to replace Ozzy. I have a bootleg of it somewhere.

Slade on Stage is an absolute belter of a live album too. They absolutely let rip.

I also like Mountain Live, "The Road Goes Ever On". However, it's only one side that I really like - the live version of "Nantucket Sleighride". It's brilliant!

On my turntable as I type.

Here's Mountain's Leslie West, some years later. "Theme from an imaginary Western", featuring his long-appreciated mastery of vibrato combined with the Steinberger guitar's TransTrem mechanism, and dedicated to Felix Pappalardi.
