As we’re on the topic of live albums…
Do you have a favourite (officially-released) live album?
A list of five would be nice.
I’d have to include Pink Floyd’s ‘P.U.L.S.E’, as well as ‘Delicate Sound of Thunder’, on my list. Neil Young’s ‘Rust Never Sleeps’ cannot be overlooked. The Beatles’ ‘Live at the BBC’ has numerous high points…
And this is where it starts to get difficult.
The Who sounded pretty damn good ‘Live at Leeds’. Nirvana would create one of few recent (well, it’s quite recent) classics when ‘Unplugged in New York’. But can anyone with ears really leave out Jimi Hendrix at Woodstock? Or Monterey? Or the Fillmore East, for that matter? And what of those two great showmen of the 20th century, James Brown (‘Live at the Apollo’) and Elvis Presley (‘In Person at the International Hotel’)?
Let’s see what you come up with. Five, if you can manage it, please. Official recordings only.
