Bruce Springsteen and the E Street Band: Live at the Hammersmith Odeon is a fantastic album. I'm also partial to the 3 disc Springsteen Live: 1975-1985

I like a lot of the choices already posted. I’ll just throw in Iron Maiden “Live After Death” to add to the list.

I like "Maiden England" more, although that might not count because I think it was originally a VHS release and then maybe it came out on CD later.  Can't remember.

Liked both of those. 


Live Rust - Neil Young 


Throw in KISS Alive.

The Name of This Band Is Talking Heads -- Everyone knows about Stop Making Sense because of the movie, but this double live album (which contains music from the first four albums) blows it out of the water in terms of quality and sound.  In fact, the sound is so clean, the guitar work so rigidly accurate, that you can't believe this is all one-take playing.  I know there's often post-production on live albums, but even taking that into account the playing here is a revelation, and it exposes brilliantly the songwriting gift David Byrne had in that era. 
 
Weld by Neil Young -- Similarly, Young has other, better known live albums, but they don't match up to Weld's song selection ("Cortez The Killer" is worth the price of admission alone, and then you throw in an epic version of "Like A Hurricane") and passionate yet tasteful soloing by Young.
 
Nocturne by Siouxsie And The Banshees -- Nothing special, just a personal favorite of mine.
 
Captured by Journey -- Gregg Rollie's last hurrah with the band.  Steve Perry's at the peak of his powers here.
 
The Beatles, Washington DC, February 11, 1964 -- They must have put on some incredible shows as they were coming up, but this, the first true U.S. concert they performed, has enough energy to light the east coast.  Ringo's playing is insane here; check out "I Wanna Be Your Man".

I like tons of what has been mentioned: Kiss Alive, Neil Young Weld, Wings over America, Nugent Gonzo all stick out but nothing so far has been a must miss in my book.

Going to add a couple: The Allman Brothers "An Evening with the Allman Brothers", and "2nd Set". Both of these were recorded at least partially at the Beacon in NY and to listen to them is like listening to music for the first time. It's not just the songs but the quality of the recording, full digital recording in 1992 was not that common.

The other one I'll add is the only live Country album I think I'd ever put on the list: Hank Williams Jr, "Hank Live". This came out in 1987, he was the undisputed King of Country at the time. Other than the obviously dubbed in crowd noises at times, the music is crisp and very non-country.

I gotta mention the MTV Unplugged albums. I liked Nirvana (featuring About a Girl), STP (featuring Plush), Alice In Chains (featuring Nutshell), and Eric Clapton (featuring Tears In Heaven), all were great. I know I'm probably forgetting a couple more?

Also to add Judas Priest - Unleashed in the East is so iconic. Another one with not a single weak cut in it.

To also add, even though it may not technically be a live album, Led Zeppelin - How the West Was Won. Zeppelin at their very peak. Each performance more crushing than the last. Yeah yeah, Jimmy is sloppy. However Mr. Crowley made him a little less sloppy on these tracks.

The Stones "Get Yer Ya-Ya's Out" Is one of my favorite official releases, it's the Mick Taylor era and his guitar work on Sympathy for the Devil on that album is IMO the greatest recorded guitar solo in history...that said, it's not the best overall Stones live release, their Brussell's Affair Vault release is..

I also love Cinderella's "Live from the Key Club", it's a small venue, they're on fire on this one..good stuff..

Everything else that's been mentioned here of course I dig, especially Kiss Alive..

EVERY live album has some doctoring and touching up. Hell, the How the West was Won by Zeppelin i love but there's studio stuff on it, at times there's rhythm guitar playing while Page is soloing, he just can't leave stuff alone, he had to go and doctor stuff..

yeah page is a perfectionist. he will go back and listen to the shows and if he hears a bum note or something he wants to fix it. live concerts do not have to be perfect. its a live show. should be warts and all..

Yeah, I'd rather hear a band have a few mistakes but bring it live than play perfectly. We had a gig Sat, a music festival, we hadn't practiced in 2 weeks and it was only an hour so we just went in no setlist or anything and said screw it, there were a few rough bits but it was maybe the most fun gig I ever played..we were improvising on some songs we hadn't done in a long time and it came off really well..

I prefer "Live After Death" and is what I immediately thought of, when I saw this thread. "Scream for Me, Long Beach!" will always be in my lexicon.

I like "Maiden England" more, although that might not count because I think it was originally a VHS release and then maybe it came out on CD later.  Can't remember.
Originally a VHS show released in 1989. A mini 6 song EP CD of what would become known as "Maiden England" was released as part of the bi-weekly "The First 10 Years" in 1990-- in the UK and Europe only. If you bought all 10 CDs, you could send in their respective vouchers and get a special box-set storage thingie. 

All 10 CDs eventually made their way, over here, and were pretty coveted among Maiden fans in the early 90's. I ended up with 7 of them. Had their singles and cool b-sides, released in chronological order.

"Maiden England" -- the full show-- was re-released in 2013.

Sorry...went off on a tangent with my Maiden fandom. I got into the bootleg trading scene, circa 2002 or so and ended up with a ton of high-quality live Maiden shows from 1979 to 2000's. Overall, I think their live shows lost some bite, around 1986/1987 with the "Somewhere on Tour" shows.

I have a Tool "Lateralus" show from 2001. That's my unofficial favorite live album. Maynard on having King Crimson open up for them, that night: "this is like Britney Spears getting to play with Debbie Gibson. Or Lenny Kravitz getting to play with Led Zeppelin. It's like that... but it isn't".
