    Best Live Albums of All Time

    I'm totally stealing this from another thread, but live music deserves to have a thread all it's own. What's the best live one you own? Bootlegs usually sound terrible, but maybe it's still a good set.
    Some live albums are so good, when you turn out the lights, close your eyes and crank it up, You almost feel like you are there.
    Some of my favs include:

    Iron Maiden-Live After Death (nuff said)
    Sade-Lovers Live (if you can't get laid when playing this, there's no hope)
    Steely Dan-Live at The Record Plant in Sausalito 1974
    The Ziggens-Live:Tickets Still Available
    Foo Fighters-Skin and Bones
    I've got 2 Bob Marley & The Wailers one is from The Record Plant in Sausalito I think it's '78 and one from The Quiet Night Club in Chicago circa '79. It's a tie between the two.

    What's your fav?
    No matter how high the throne,
    there sits but an ass.

    MC5 - Kick Out the Jams is WAY up there on a best of the best list.

    I thought Clapton 24 Nights was pretty good too.

    If I had my collection in front of me I could list more.

    They're very different, but both deeply inspired.
