Favourite live albums


Recommended Posts

Hi folks

Possibly been done before, but what are your favourite live albums?

A few of mine for starters:

* Joe Walsh - You can't argue with a sick mind

* Lynyrd Skynyrd - One more from the road

* Thin Lizzy - Live and dangerous

* Nils Lofgren - Night after night

* Wishbone Ash - Live Dates

* Peter Frampton - FCA


All have great bass players - Willie Weeks, Leon Wilkeson, Phil Lynott, Wornell 'The Sonic Prince' Jones, Martin Turner, Stanley Sheldon.

All Those Wasted Years by Hanoi Rocks, pretty much never out of my car stereo in 1986


No Sleep til Hammersmith by Motörhead, for the non Hanoi Rocks moments of 1986


Filthy Lucre by The Sex Pistols, their comeback gig in Finsbury Park in 1996, was a great gig

Pulse - the Pink Floyds

live after death - Maiden

and a special mention to 


A Show of Hands by Rush

- the bass run down on the last track (side 4 if, like me, you had it on vinyl) is what inspired me to pick up the bass at the tender age of 17.


Decade of Aggression - Slayer

BBC Sessions - Led Zeppelin
