Does anyone have the IMPERIAL TEEN 'live' album, been meaning to pick it up.

LUNA's 'live' album I also like. The vinyl edition has three extra tracks that aren't on the CD.

The best live Led Zeppelin album is actually:

Jimi Page and The Black Crowes at The Greek. A double cd of the ballsiest Zepplin tunes ever played live. Get it NOW - your souls are at stake!

Oh, and I was actually at both shows that they recorded for the cd.

Pre-"Tubthumping" Chumbawamba's live album "Showbusiness" is also a great performance captured on disc.

Gene's album: "Rising for Sunset" is also recommended for Brit-pop fans. It was long rumoured that this performance would also appear on DVD, but alas that never happened.

Guns N Roses Live Era (2CD) is awesome -- particularly Estranged.

Stones Get Yer Ya Ya's Out is also a classic -- the audio on the new remastered CD/SACD is supposed to be incredible, though I haven't heard it myself.
