What are your favorite live concert recordings.  Among my favorites are:

Leonard Cohen, Live in London
Tony Bennet, Live at Carnegie Hall
Simon & Garfunkel in Central Park NYC
Jackson Brown, Running on Empty
aeschwartz
Trilogy - Chick Corea Trio ( Christian McBride on double bass and Brian Blade on drums).  Three CD set.  Really great recording.  Big soundstage and imaging.  On the other extreme, Frank Zappa with Captain Beefheart on Bongo Fury.  
Genesis - Second's Out with Three Sides Live running close behind
Pink Floyd - Pulse
U2 - Popmart (Made my own version of the Mexico City broadcast)

The resent half-speed mastered vinyl version of Second's out is a winner on my system. Also has the best version of Supper's Ready.

Cinema Show is also wonderful on this release. 


In no particular order -

Eric Clapton - Unplugged
Eagles - Unplugged Second Night
Deep Purple - Made in Japan
Simon and Garfunkel - The Concert in CP
Nirvana - Unplugged
