Best LIVE album?

Looking for some recommendations for some live music and wondered what everyone considered to be the best live album?

It doesn't matter what style of music, but preferably a CD from one concert as opposed to some that get released that feature several tracks from various shows.

What's everyones favorite?

I would have to say that "Full House" trumps BYFO in terms of a tight little package of tunes full of knockout out punches.

"Stop Making Sense" immediately came to mind. That and it's THE best live concert film I've ever seen. But a very close runner up is Depeche Mode's "101".

I've always found that my favorite live albums tend to come from electronic acts.

Underworld's "Everything Everything" and especially Kraftwerk's "Minimum-Maximum" are absolutely essential.

The Bjork Livebox is also a great listen, but if you don't have the money for the whole thing right away, "Homogenic Live" is the standout disc for me. I've always been annoyed that they cut up the Shepherd's Bush show so bad for the "Post Live" disc, so I have a hard time reccomending that one over the live DVD from the same show, which is amazing.
