Which ones do it for you? My list of favourite live albums has embarrassingly remained unchanged for the last twenty odd years (the most recent being Thin White Rope's 1993 "The One That Got Away" - importantly its a Live Double). This reveals what a simple loyal soul I am, but also that the golden age of the live album has passed. Or has it? Enlighten my ignorance.

Newark libary had an original vinyl copy of Space Ritual right up to the late eighties which was highly influential with the 4 people who ever got it out. Probably changed my life.

Space Ritual - Hawkwind
Performance - Spacemen 3
Exit Stage Left - Rush (in my opinion the only essential Rush album)
On Your Feet Or On Your Knees - Blue Oyster Cult (ditto Blue Oyster Cult - thanks Joe)
A Live Record - Camel
Les Bains Douches 1979 - Joy Division
The One That Got Away - Thin White Rope
Fucked Up Inside - Spiritualized
Live And Let Live - Twelfth Night
Live Evil - Black Sabbath (because I am from the midlands and it is great).

10 is enough to be getting on with. No Grateful Dead, Who, Deep Purple, Miles Davis or bloody Yessongs. How wrong I am...




Definitely with you on Space Ritual and Blue Oyster Cult.

I'd add (for starters):

Spirit Live at the Rainbow
Focus Live at the Rainbow (I've just seen them, so it is getting some plays!)
King Crimson - Earth
Tangerine Dream - Ricochet
Slade Alive!
Bob Marley Live
