This has probably been done done before but here goes my top five 1 The Allman Brothers Band Fillmore East 2 Derek and the Dominos Live at The Filmore East 3 Humble Pie Live at The Fillmore East 4 The Who Live At Leeds 5 The Rolling Stones Get Your Ya Ya's Out
Here are a few that are not on the list of usual suspects........
Chip Taylor and Carrie Rodriquez - Live From the Ruhr Triennale (Wow!) The Jayhawks - Live From the Women's Club Vol. 1&2 Rare Earth - Live Band of Horses - Live at the Ryman Patricia Barber - Companion BoDeans - Joe Dirt Car The Tubes - What do you Want from Live
No genre, just excellent live recordings that are often FAR better than the studio work from these artists. All of these are in my semi-regular rotation.
grateful dead live derek & dominoes live at fillmore e zappa roxy & elsewhere led zep how the west was won sting bring on the night (yes, great freaking live album) who live @ leeds (yes, thats 6, but they're equally great)
As I opened this thread I was listening to Little Feat so I will go with: Greatful Dead- Reckoning Little Feat- Waiting for Columbus Bob Seger and the Silver Bullet Band Live Jason Isbell- Live From Alabama Neil Young- Live Rust
So many good ones above + Disc 2 of Wheels of Fire Spoonful one of the best live performances ever Jimi Band of G Les McCann & Eddie Harris Live @ Montreaux Janis& BBHC Cheap Thrills Ten Years After Live
Depending on the rules, The Allman Brothers "The Fillmore Concerts", if that doesn't count then Live at Fillmore East, followed by Eat a Peach which is 3/4's live and has the sensational Mountain Jam, the Who's Live at Leeds, Little Feat's Waiting for Columbus, and the Live side of Cream's Wheels of Fire. The only guitar player that has gotten in the vicinity of Duane Allmans performance at the Fillmore East is Stevie Ray Vaughn, but that's just my humble opinion. Long live the spirit of Brother Duane Allman!
My favorites - 1. Allman Brothers Band Live at Fillmore East (ABB at their finest) 2. Ten Years After - Recorded Live (tied with the next two for best performance) 3. Humble Pie Live at the Fillmore East 4. The Who - Live at Leeds 5. Little Feat - Waiting for Columbus (best recording of the lot...)
Phil9624, I have a 45rpm EP of "Running On Empty" that BLOWS away the original lp!
