    It's great to hear one of Dylan's most important live performances before he went electric. I love how intimate the setting sounds and how positively jovial Dylan sounds throughout the show.
    It's also interesting to hear the direction Dylan was going in with early versions of songs that would later appear on "Bringing It All Back Home". I was never a "live" album type of listener but these types of albums hold historical importance and displays exactly where that artist was at that point in their career better than the actual studio recordings. (At least in this case.)
    But to be honest, I could do without Joan Baez's background singing and her solo song. :hide:

    Gong - Live in Sheffield (1974). A suitably trippy live document that finds the band's optimal line up (IMO) at the peak of their strange powers.

    It's been awhile many many months since listened to a live record, I would say it was either Led Zeppelin "The song Remains The Same" or "Rainbow On Stage".

    The last live album I listened to was Dylan's Live 1975: The Rolling Thunder Revue. Good full band electric stuff, but I was pleasantly surprised by how much solo acoustic music was also included. It may take me a while to warm up to the radical reinventions of "It Ain't Me,Babe" and "A Hard Rain's Gonna Fall", but I prefer the live band version of "Hattie Carroll" to the bare bones acoustic studio take.

    more than 90% of what I have been listening to over the past 30 years has been live music. It wasn't until I got into vinyl that I moved over to studio recordings as my first option.

    Yesterday I grabbed a Sturgill Simpson concert from BT.etree.org that is very good.

    Mighty Baby's "Tasting the Life" from 1971 concert. Sound quality is garbage yet I've been playing it more than their two studio lps or other live material. Must be the musicianship, or the music, or the magic, whatever.

    Hawkwind 'Live In '79'. Great album but a RUBBISH version of 'Silver Machine'. It might have sounded mildly amusing back in '79 but now it just feels like a major moment missed.
