Best Live Album?

I have the Springsteen live from New york city cd and the DMB live from Boulder cd that came out recently. I am talking about sound quality and the performances as well.

Rare Earth - Live in Concert is pretty amazing.

The Guess Who - Live at the Paramount is equally amazing.

Miles Davis - Live at the Plugged Nickel.

Joshua Redman - Live at the Village Vanguard

Dave Matthews Band Live at Red Rocks blows any of their live albums. Nothing will ever top that live album.

very good.

Seriously, even though I guess I'll be the only one to post this, I really love the new Dashboard Confessional MTV unplugged album.

Whatever happened to real live albums?

I mean.Ones that include pretty much all to most of the actual concert including the well known singles & lesser known(radiowise) stuff?



I bought the NIN Live album LE.

While the songs were awsome.They were all the usual tunes you hear on the radio & at only 13 tracks is far to short.

So it was pretty disapointing in my opinion.



Same thing with Violent Femmes Viva Wisconsin.

While all the songs on the album were good & sounded pretty cool live.Again just about everything i've heard before time & again. was hoping to discover some stuff i may have missed.

Yet you can tell it's not the complete concert since after every song it quickly fades away even though the bands about to start chatting with the crowd before another song & it just jumps around obviously leaving out some tunes.




So thats why i love Cheap Trick:At Budokan-The Complete Concert....lots of great stuff,Much of which which never gets radioplay besides Surrender & I Want You To Want Me.

Then theres also Kiss:Alive which sounds much better live than on the actual albums.


The Springsteen Live albums(old 80's one & a newer one) seem like they should be cool since they're huge with a long track listing which covers more than just the few songs that get radioplay.



& basically what it all comes down to. I do NOT want a Greatest Hits Live package.I want the real deal

Glad I could be of service! Btw, if you don't have the Metal Church Live disc, you should track it down. It is from the Dark tour and is all first and second album material w/David Wayne.

The one from the box set is great. Much better than Absolutely Live.

Has anybody bought any of the Bright Midnight releases?

As far as rock albums go I think it's pretty hard to top UFO - Strangers In The Night.

Metallica - Live Sh*t is pretty good as well.
