With Peter Frampton hitting town tonight, we at Spokane 7 were contemplating the best live albums ever produced and asked our readers for their suggestions. They came up with some good ones. Here’s a sampling of the answers:
The Rolling Stones “Get Your Ya Ya’s Out”
John Lennon in New York City
U2 - Live under a blood red sky
Frank Marino & Mahogany Rush: Live
Hampton Comes Alive #Phish (Phish is also in the area this weekend – playing tonight and Saturday at The Gorge)
“At Fillmore East” by Allman Brothers Band
I’m particularly fond of The Song Remains the Same by Led Zeppelin.
Kiss Alive - It defined the band as a live act and introduced their first 3 albums’ material to new fans. It pushed them to a new level but of course you had to live in that generation to truly appreciate it.
The Talking Heads ‘Stop Making Sense’ (1984)
Cheap Trick at Budokan
Waiting for Columbus by Little Feat
My husband says Kansas “Two For the Show”
