On the Road by Traffic, ABB at Fillmore East, Past Lives by Black Sabbath, and some copy of Santana and Buddy Miles live that I got from my dad. These are the current favorites.

How the West was Won has some good moments, but I have a mix of the best stuff on one cd; I don't like everything on all 3 of the discs.

Yeah, I just recently got that album...

"What do you guys wanna hear?"


06-26-2006, 09:56 AM
'Rockin the Joint it's a shame, that album could have been 12093128 times better then it is now.

My favorites are:
Rolling Stones- Get Yer Ya-Ya's Out (one of the best live albums ever)
Neil Young- Live Rust
Yes- Yessongs
Led Zeppelin- TSRTS (I love Celebration Day)
Joe Walsh- You Can't Argue With A Sick Mind
Rush- Exit...Stage Left

I think it's worth it. The first two songs are good, but the middle is where it picks up for me.The version of Evil Ways has a lot more energy than the original, imo. There's something on it called Faith Interlude, which is a cool little two minute bit, then a good version of Them Changes. The ending is a long jam (pretty sure it's mostly in Em)... just the name alone, "Free Form Funkadelic Filth" is great. It's around 20 minutes long I think, but if you're into that sort of thing it's cool.

Overall, if you like the old style of Santana's latin-rock, and would like to hear it with what I consider to be improved singing and a horn section to boot, pick it up and give it a listen.

Hahahahaa! Distilled and Jimmy's avatars look hilarious out of sync. While one cow is zoomed right out, the other is zoomed in, and then they switch. God that's cool.

The KISS ALIVE series, especially Alive! and Alive IV with the Symphony, a new twist on old favs.

Get Yer Ya-Ya's Out is also stunning as is Allman Bros Fillmore East.

Paul McCartney Live in Red Square is also a good one.

Is there any body out there/ The Wall live. Probably the best live performance ever, considering you couldn't get tickets for love nor money as they only did a very few amount of shows.

07-26-2006, 08:51 AM
^^my dad had two tickets for the 2/22/80 show...he was offered $500 for the pair while walking to the arena. His friend wanted to do it but my dad said no, after the show was done his friend said he was glad they didn't sell them.

:( I wish I could have seen the Wall live.

07-26-2006, 10:02 AM
I guess these albums can be considered "Live Albums" since they consist of live solos/"bridges" from assorted shows (that's right, you know what's coming)...

Shut Up N' Play Yer Guitar
Shut Up N' Play Yer Guitar Some More
Return of the Son of Shut Up N' Play Yer Guitar

All by Frank Zappa.

The new Pink Floyd PULSE DVD is absolutely incredible. I am not a big fan of 80's/90's Floyd, but this DVD is one for the ages.

07-26-2006, 04:28 PM
My favorite live album right now is Past Lives by Black Sabbath. It's sucks its not really a full concert, just has parts of concerts from like 6 different shows. It does get a variet of songs from alot of their first albums though.
