What are your favorite 3-5 live albums?

Asked by tinyfaery (40306points) June 18th, 2014 from iPhone

There are a few live albums that I loved so much I became an instant fan of the artists.

What are some good ones? I don’t like country, anything too hard or rap. I like some R&B, but not much.

What is it about that live album that appeals to you?

Probably the biggest selling live album of all time is Frampton Comes Alive.
My favorite is probably paul simon’s Live Rhymin’

Another great one (and terrific video as well) is the Talking Heads Stop Making Sense.

The best, in my opinion? Woodstock

And @filmfann names two of the best: Frampton Comes Alive and Stop Making Sense

Awesome @dappled_leaves. I haven’t heard Width of a Circle in a long time.
that was a great year for music!

@Dan_Lyons Sgt. Pepper is not a live album. It’s just audience sounds added in. Same with Elton John’s Benny and the Jets.
