Yes Ive got How the West Was Won ..... yes it is pretty amazing
But is there anything else?
Any bootlegs dare I say?
Live at Royal Albert Hall - Spiritualized
but Jeff Buckley - Mystery White Boy
I like alot of the Hendrix live stuff as well.
alive one is the 'classic' but alive 2 has the best songs.
both are infamously overdubbed
y'know what else is great ... perhaps too good to be true ... Kiss Symphony (Alive 4)
kiss with a fully made up orchestra in some stadium looking place in australia. amazing.
plus Siouxsie and the Banshees' Nocturne
The only Lizzy you need.
Ani DiFranco - So Much Shouting, So Much Laughter
Talking Heads - Stop Making Sense / The Name Of This Band...
That Petrol Emotion - Final Flame
Tom Waits - Nighthawks at the Diner
Pete Green - Live at the Cornubia, Bristol (ok, this is a bootleg, but you can get it free from his site, so...)
Sam Cooke - Live at the Harlem Square Club, 1963
Live at the Apollo 1962 is the "classic" one, Love Power Peace is probably better though...
Oh oh, and Neil Young's Rust Never Sleeps. Obviously.
but yep, that's a great live one. I love Disc 2 especially.
I really must get it though.
is my standard response for every time this thread comes up, I see no reason to change it.
which was recorded on the same tour and realised that it's the superior version?
(especially sonic attack and time we left...)
way to make me look ignorant.
with bonus tracks that are just alternative takes then the epic 15 minute improv of time we left is from this.
it appears I do have that. Gonna have to give that another spin then. Nice.
mc5 - kick out the jams
Cheap Trick - Live at the Budokan
Black Flag - Who's Got The 10 1/2?
The Stooges - Metallic K.O.
Mission of Burma - The Horrible Truth About Burma
James can get the fuck out as well, while we're at it.
Also, that new Hold Steady one is great. I shouldn't feel guilty liking them, should I?
One more must have:
Neil Young - Weld
I can't be the only one who thinks this
i'm 'wierd' though, i like the slow Black Flag alot.
and also The Clash's From Here to Eternity which is maybe the best thing they have released.
but not that good
Los Feliz - Chuck Regan
but nothing is there anything on it that touches the live version of Hurt on Further Down...?
Is the first thing that popped into my mind. What a wonderfully ridiculous band, I love them to death. Actually, the Paranoid cover from that album is one of my favourite covers ever. I really do love them.
is Live in the West, by far his best album. It still hasn't been re-released on CD.
It's just called Hendrix in the West
On your copy is the tracklisting all wrong?
The Stooges - Metallic K.O.
Guided by Voices - Live in Austin Texas
Wilco - Kicking Televisions
Nirvana - From The Muddy Banks of the Wishkah / Live! Tonight! Sold Out! VHS (and Unplugged In New York obviously)
Tom Waits - Nighthawks at the Diner
Devo - Devo LIVE
Radiohead - Live at the Astoria VHS
Smashing Pumpkins - Vieuphoria VHS
Jeff Buckley - Mystery White Boy / Live in Chicago VHS
Fugazi - Instrument VHS (documentary + brilliant live stuff)
REM - Tourfilm VHS
Eels - Live at Town Hall
Hanson - Live from Albertane
Take That - Live at Wembley VHS
I hope these have all already been mentioned.
PS. Change VHS to DVD, I'm behind the times.
"one, two, ONE TWO FUCK YOU!"
Fuck, I want to listen to this now, but I've no idea where my copy is.
has a good vibe in it. all their best bits too.
Maybe not a very DiS band, the set spans their whole career though, covering the early post hardcore stuff up to the ambient, acoustic stuff off the Alchemy Index. It's really great. And it's on Spotify.
Harmonia - Live 74
Kraftwerk - Minimum/Maximum
The Fall - In a Hole
Stooges - Metallic KO
Devo: Devo Live: The Mongoloid Years
Black Flag - Live 84
The Fall - Totales Turns
is definitely 'The 27 points'
and obvs Radiohead - I Might Be Wrong
Talking Heads - Stop Making Sense!
LIVE AFTER DEATH
thats a good un
Nirvana - Unplugged. The highlight of all the Unplugged sessions.
Johnny Cash - At Folsom Prison.
Neil Young - Weld. Its like a how-to for rock guitar playing, 'Like A Hurricane' Wow :)
Portishead's Live NYC album is good too, just thought I'd mention it as I don't think anyone has but its good - some interesting versions.
Prince - Sign 'O' The Times (DVD)
By Curtis Mayfield. Small club, small band, classic songs and a fired up crowd = superb live album.
AC DC. Includes the ultimate version of Whole Lotta Rosie and a song about the clap, what more do you want?
Suicide Live on cassette was pretty intense.
Nocturne by Siouxsie and The Banshees- is a gem
Is fricking sweet
I only have a JD/NO live Peel Sessions comp -thing...but I gotta say I like JD better live than on album (where they always sound a bit flat).
semi-JAG. EATB Live In Liverpool. Siouxsie's Nocture is a gem: I'll second that motion.
The live stuff on Pavement re-issues. Lw/outB, yes. David Live. Kiss Alive, deffo; Kiss AliveII, pass.
is it better than Song Remains The Same?
Until now I thought it was some compilation: which made me wonder why it was so popular with Metacritic. Now I know.
even a year after it came out the band admitted the Song soundtrack was shit. shabby performances throughout on that one.
Liveage - Descendents
As it happens, though I'm reasonably snobbish about music, I will confess to being a big fan of Muse, and I think HAARP is a pretty enjoyable account of the Wembley gig.
is pretty much the pinnacle of live electronic music, it's a work of genius.
By Jeff Buckley is good. I havent hear live at Sin-e so i dunno how they compare?
MC5 Kick Out The Jams ... Otis Redding At The Whisky ... James Brown At The Apollo 1 & 2 ... Dylan Live 1966 ... Stooges Metallic KO ... Neil Young & Crazy Horse Weld ... Lou Reed Take No Prisoners
Is my fav live album, utter genius !!! It was their first album and it was so good they didnt need to record any of the songs in a studio.
These early 90s corporate-grunge jokes doing anything for yer?
yep. but anything bob dylan is amazing. got a buncha bootlegs that are way up there, too.
Summer In The South East is awesome... It's Will Oldham with a great band and has a real earthy feel... almost Pearl Jam-esque in places. Really great re-workings of his songs. The newish one with Harum Scarum is good aswell... again the somgs are re-worked to have a great folky feel! What an artist
'rank' of course!
Fairly early, decent quality, frantic recording of Elvis with The Attractions around the time of This Year's Model. A brilliant band, especially the bass player.
Playing 'new' songs like Old Man and Needle and the Damage Done. Just him and a guitar. Good stuff.
You can also pick it up pretty cheaply from amazon marketplace or play methinks.
Not generalyl a live albums fan, but Marilyn Manson 'The Last Tour on Earth' and NIN 'And All That Could Have Been' are pretty decent.
is awesome too. With the band from the Desire album and a whole host of guests to boot. Its also home to the definitive version of 'Hurricane'.
A great place to start if you haven't checked him out before too!
Live at the Bloomsbury Theatre - Tindersticks
Little Drummer Boy - Kozelek
Live at the Royal Albert Hall is amazing, he rips throuhg some old songs like One too Many Mornings and Baby Let Me Follow You Down but obviously the 'judas' is cool to hear to hear as well, but for me HARD RAIN is his best live recording, its similar in its defiant delivery as 1966, but it just edges it.
Before the Flood is clearly better
Judas Priest - Unleashed in the East.
Motorhead - No Sleep 'til Hammersmith
AC/DC - If you want blood.....
Cheap Trick - Live at Budokan
Bonnie Prince Billy - Summer in the Southeast
Revolting Cocks - You Goddamn Son Of A Bitch
