Love the Neil Young offerings especially Live Rust. The Black Crowes have recorded a lot of gigs at the Fillmore over the years, the DVD Freak and Roll is good and if you do I tunes there are 6 great shows available. Each night finishes with a trio of covers, Beatles one night, Neil Young one night, The Band, The Stones, Blues standards etc.
Best live double albums?
no one's mentioned 'Here and There'
EJ at his best.
Just remembered Joe Cockers Mad Dogs and Englishmen. Great singing and a fantastic band.
Surprised it took 5 posts before someone mentioned Alchemy Dire Straits. Always been my fave live double album.
Also, yes, Live In The City Of Light. Right up there, too.
Now if we're talking *single* live albums, It's gonna have to be:
Peerless. Absolutely peerless.
I forgot one of my all time fav live Jazz albums, the very first live double album ever released way back in 1938.
I'd love to hear Pete Long recreate the experience down at Cadogan Hall on the 14th Feb but it's 400 miles away from me
Well, if it's open to live albums in general,
Five man acoustical jam - Tesla
Really gets the feel of being there at the gig, mistakes and all.
Jimmy Page & The Black Crowes, Live at the Greek
The Band, The Last Waltz
Mr Woppit got it right, and I'm ashamed of the rest of you that it took until nearly the end of the third page to get there.
Oh well, if we're relaxing the rules, there's no contest.
And if we're including single albums...
