Top 10 Live Albums


Get Yer Ya-Ya's Out
-The Rolling Stones
-Their tour of 1969 was, by far, considered to be the best yet. But their concert at the Altamont Speedway in Northern California was and will forever be marred by the death of 18 year old Meredith Hunter at the hands of the Los Angeles chapter of the Hells Angels

It's Too Late to Stop Now
-Van Morrison
-Even though he suffered from stage fright, he was considered to be one of the best live performers of the 1970s

Running on Empty
-Jackson Browne
-Typical concert live album

Live 1966: The Royal Albert Hall Concert
-Bob Dylan

-This turned an average, makeup wearing band from New York into one of the biggest bands of all time

-The Grateful Dead
-Fans will downright tell you that no studio album compares to the live experience of actually seeing these guys live

Rust Never Sleeps
-Neil Young & Crazy Horse
-The name is slightly borrowed from Jackson Browne's "Running on Empty"

Cheap Trick at Budokan
-Cheap Trick
-Budokan, the famed martial art arena in Tokyo where so many rock musicians have played, played host to Cheap Trick. This album is said to have been better than any of the band's studio LPs

At Fillmore East
-The Allman Brothers Band
-While their first two albums didn't raise alot of good attention, their two night stint at the famous  New York venue really got things going in good favor for them

Live at Leeds
-The Who
-The 6 tracks on this album were recorded at a British University in 1970 during the tour for Tommy
