I've been listening to live albums all day, so I began compiling a short list of my favorites.
In no particular order:
James Brown--Live at the Apollo
The Band--The Last Waltz
Allman Brothers Band--At Filmore East
Johnny Cash--At Folsom Prison
Thelonius Monk Quartet w/ John Coltrane at Carnegie Hall
Joe Cocker--Mad Dogs and Englishmen
Talking Heads--Stop Making Sense
NOFX--I Heard They Suck Live (and they do, but it's great anyway)
the Grateful Dead--Europe '72
Tool--Salival (though far too short)
Thoughts? Favorites? Shit-talking?
Let's have at it
