For some bands, expecially the ones from the 60s and the 70s, live albums are much better than the original recording.
That maybe due to the fact that the band could improvise during the concert or the sound quality is exceeds the boring original/
This was the case for Led Zeppelin, when Jimmy Page's guitar tone sounded a bit cheesy on the studio recordings of Black Dog and Rock and Roll.

These are in my opinion the greatest live albums:

1. How the West Was Won - Led Zeppelin
Probably the only album that I have the entire thing on my playlist.
Jimmy Page's talent as a producer was shown in this 2002 released live album, where he collected performances from different shows, most of which are from Long Beach California.
Some complained about this but I think it works perfect.
Where the album throws 30 minute versions of Whole Lotta Love and Dazed and Confused of Jimmy Page's "because I'm worth it" solos, and John Bonham's 10 minute drum solo in Moby Dick where he combines Japanese, African, Western, and Middle Eastern style of drumming on the usual drums.
Even improved like Dancing Days, Stairway to Heaven, Rock and Roll, Black Dog, and Over the Hills and Far Away make this album the best.
Just listen to the improvisation on the solo of Stairway to Heaven, it kicks your belief that the song is underrated.
It doesn't get any better than this.

I just rented Live at Leeds by the Who, and I'm loving it, it's just much better than the studio recordings.

What live album do you think is the greatest?

It's pretty good actually, I had a Nirvana phase and listened to it more than Nevermind.

Lizzy-Live And Dangerous, haven't the whole album but want it cos the songs I have heard are amazing.

+1 to AC/DC Live, it's nearly all recorded at Donnington '91 and rocks!

Then you should try dangerfapping. It involves fapping till ur halfway there, and then calling ur mom or dad to your room, and than try to cum before he/she enters your room. It's an incredible rush.

Why d'you even have a Nirvana avatar if you don't know those songs? It's an awesome album, and it also contains a lot of covers, because that makes it more interesting for fans who know all the songs really well.
