    I'm just curious why you listed "Bursting Out" among the worst. I've listened to that album countless times and think it's really good. Genuinely interested about what you find so bad about it.

    I looked at your profile, and noticed you have a turntable. I am guessing you listen to Bursting Out on vinyl, which may be why we have different opinions on the album. On CD it sounds like crap, at least the 2 CD remaster that I have. It has been many years since I last listened to it, so maybe I should give it another chance.

    That's probably not helping. Vinyl is the way to go;


    Well for some reason I can't get a picture to work...:help:

    Bursting Out never sounded great on vinyl or CD. Where's the bass and bass drum? Why do the cymbals sound so screechy? The performances are great, but I have ditched mine for the Live in Berne CD/DVD from the deluxe Heavy Horses, which sounds slightly better.

    Europe '72, my favorite (mostly) live album, does these between-track fadeouts, as well as leaving out any crowd noise apart from whatever faint cheering the vocal mikes pick up. I love it.

    The cardinal sin of live albums is actually loud, jacked-up hysterical crowd noise (sometimes using canned crowd tape not even from the actual show), followed by pretending that the truncated edited transitions between songs are faithful documents of what happened at the concert.

    I love live albums ... I don't really know why, but if I like a band I probably have a live album of theirs.
    Stones - Still Life - I know it's a less popular one,but I always loved it.
    Kinks - One For The Road - I know it has overdubs, but it is a fantastic album, with a great set of songs on it.
    Iron Maiden - just about all of them are great, I prefer the dvds/blurays
    Keith Jarrett - Koln Concert - the guy is so into it, it is hard not to be there with him.
    Bruce Springsteen - that live box was great imho
    Elvis Presley - Closing Night - One of the most bizarre live albums ever. Elvis is so past wanting to be there, he is joking around and rattling people's cages ... it is incredibly interesting to me and I find it very entertaining. Apparently he fired Parker after the show ... sadly he hired him back.

    I could go on and on, but I love live albums, I reckon they are great
