Bob Marley- Live
ABB- Live @ Fillmore
Joe Cocker- Mad Dogs & Englishmen
Otis & Jimi- Monterey Pop Fest

I'd pick a different Hendrix show, but I'm glad he's on the list. Jimi and Otis both killed at Monterey.

Santana's "Lotus" needs to be on there, and Cheap Trick sure doesn't.

I agree with "Yessongs," my favorite Yes album.

I could live without the Stones, and I don't just mean that particular album.

Replace Bob Marley? Good luck!

I've always thought "Live Dead" was a MUCH better album than "Europe 72."

Some good choices though, not a bad list at all. That James Brown album is a friend of mine's favorite album of all time, ever, period. "Love Power Peace" was recorded live in Paris during the Catfish and Bootsy Collins years, and that band was so tight it's scary!

I'd remove Cheap Trick - they shouldn't be on any essential list. Remove the Stones, too - not a very good live band. I know Who Live at Leeds and Cream's live albums are considered essential, but I can think of ten I dig more or are simply better.

Allman Brothers at Fillmore East
Cannonball Adderly - Mercy, Mercy, Mercy
Traffic - Welcome to the Canteen
Ike & Tina Turner - What You Hear is What You Get
Albert King - Live Wire/Blues Power
King Curtis - Live at the Fillmore West
Ray Charles - Live
Talking Heads - Stop Making Sense
Les McCann - Swiss Movement
Johnny Cash - Live at Folsom Prison

Don't know who Ed Baumgardner is, but if he can have a top 10 so can Curmudgeon:

ABB - 1st Set (I know it should be Fillmore but I love this CD)
Neil Young & Crazy Horse - Live Rust
The Kinks - One For The Road
AC/DC - If Want Blood You've Got It
Gov't Mule - With a Little Help From...
The Who - Live at Leeds
Eric Clapton - 24 Nights
Jerry Garcia Band - Live
Robert Randolph & The Family Band - Live At The Wetlands
Paul McCartney & Wings - Wings Over America

May not historically be the "best" live albums of all time, but they are my favorites and what the hell I guess that is all that matters.

It is....Europe 72 has tons of overdubs...GD helped pioneer that particular trick.

It doesn't matter what's on yer list...as long as you remember the greatest live album of all time is At The Fillmore East by the ABB. Hands down, nothing touches it.

Sure it's just opinion...but what better board to type that on?

How about some of the notorious bootlegs out there?

Led Zeppelin has several that blow away Song Remains the Same-
For Badgeholders Only/ Bonzo's Birthday- LA Forum shows w/Keith Moon sitting in-ouch!
Destroyer- a four LP set from Cleveland in '77-excellent soundboard and some great performances

The Beatles at the Star Club in Hamburg- back when they played all night long.
Also- instead of Cheap Trick- The Beatles at the Budokan- it's a bit dodgy playing-wise, but the sheer excitement comes through, and they rip it up on I'm Down.

Does the live half of Ummagumma by Pink Floyd count?
Or, for that matter, the live part of Eat A Peach?
Both of those 'half-albums' are better than most whole live albums out there.

And nobody's mentioned Frampton Comes Alive.........

You forgot Kiss-Alive!, one of the best 'engineered' live albums out there, also Black Sabbath-Live Evil with Ronnie James Dio, as well as Rainbow-On Stage, again with Dio. Deep Purple's Made in Japan and Around Again also would have to be in there. And Elton John's Here And There (just for John Lennon's last public performance) would have to go in too.

Here are a few of my favorites:

Yes - Keys to Ascension I
George Thorogood - Let's Work Together (love the St. Louis Blues on there)
ABB - 2nd Set (That BWIAB is awesome)
Pink Floyd - Is There Anybody Out There?

Did I forget Mule's Live w/a Little Help from Our Friends (the big one)? Shame on me.
