RE: Live Vinyl Albums

When I started again (after 20 years) last year with a TT and vinyl, i just limmited myself to 70's albums from artists I knew but didn't have complete albums from or just missed out over the years.

Most of the vinyl-albums I purchased s/h is Live, because they have that sound from backthen and a variety of songs.  :rockout: :grin:

CSNY - 4 way street, Camel - a live record, Traffic - on the road, Brand X - livestock, Joe Walsh - you can't argue with a sick mind, Todd Rundgren Utopia - another live, Focus - at the rainbow live, Fleetwood Mac - live, Tangerine Dream - ricochet, Billy Cobham & George Duke - live in europe, Billy Cobham - alivemotherforya.

Live in Europe by Rory Gallagher

Roxy & Elsewhere by Frank Zappa & the Mothers of Invention

Performance - Rockin' The Fillmore by Humble Pie

Live at The Rainbow by Bob Marley & The Wailers  (mainly because I was there!).

I was going to say I was there at Reading festival when this was recorded, but then I was just checking the details, when I came across this piece of interesting info.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/All_Live_and_All_of_the_Night

Seems it wasn't the live album it pretended to be, and I was definitely not in the studio when it was re-recorded.

I've seen the video of Reading, but hadn't realised it was not the same.

I was right at the front at Reading, and an object came flying over my head from behind somewhere. When I looked at the ground, I noticed that it was, quite unbelievably, a large penknife.  :O

I like The Stranglers, but not enough to risk my life for.

RE: Live Vinyl Albums

My favourite live album is -

Live After Death by Iron Maiden.

Beautifully recorded and the band are at the absolute height of their powers.

Another great live favourite is -

Live In The City Of Light by Simple Minds.

Not the greatest recording, but the most viscerally exciting live album I have heard is -

Live At Brixton Academy by Faith No More (and we were in the crowd!!)

RE: Live Vinyl Albums

I can heartily advise stearing clear of Michael Schenker Group - Rock will never Die. Recorded at the Hammy O over two nights in October 83, I was at the first night and he could barely stand he was so drunk, Gary Barden wasn't much better. By the end the place was almost empty, yet made it onto a live album!

Not wishing to put a downer on your purchase (which is a very good album BTW) but I too have ordered "mint" copies off Ebay in the past, but my idea of mint differed quite considerably from the seller.

 

Mint should be according to Ebays own definition..

 

" MINT: The record itself is in brand new condition with no surface marks or deterioration in sound quality. The cover and any extra items such as the lyric sheet, booklet or poster are in perfect condition. Records advertised as Sealed or Unplayed should be Mint.

 

 

Fingers crossed.
