Genre, year, or length doesn't matter. What are your favorite live albums. Bootlegs count. These are in no particular order.

KISS Alive! - I was lucky enough to see this tour. They were hungry and went out for blood every night. It worked. I don't think they every again reached the fury of those days.

Wings Over America - Triple album by Sir Paul. Not a clunker in the bunch. This version of Wings was incredibly underrated. Jimmy McCulloch was a beast on lead guitar. Denny Laine was an elite level musician and writer. McCartney was still young and cared about the music.

UFO - Strangers in the Night - Another incredible double album that isn't remembered the way it should be. Michael Schenker was such a beast. Listen to that note he hits on This Kids....yeah, that one. UFO was just like Thin Lizzy in that they never really broke huge in the States and they definitely should have. Which leads me to.

Thin Lizzy - Life:Live - I'm in the minority in that I love the mix of this album. Sykes is way out in front and the whole band sounds bombastic. Phil was on his last legs but he pulled it together for this series of shows. The mashup at the end with every Lizzy guitarist on Rocker was worth the price of admission. I'm not that big a fan of Lizzy's first live album because it's so canned.

Ramones - It's Alive - Punks greatest moment. I saw them at the Palladium only about a week later and it didn't have the furious pace of the New Years Eve show presented here.

Foghat - Live - Only a single album but Foghat did mostly opening slots so this was a great representation of their show. I never get tired of Slow Ride.

Ted Nugent - Double Live Gonzo - right up there with KISS Alive! as an album I wore the grooves off. The album really captured the insanity of a live Nuge show. His best lineup by far with Derek St. Holmes. The only thing is it didn't have his insane version of Turn It Up which he would always close with at the time.

There's a million more great ones. Let's see what you cretins think.
