    Bruce Springsteen............ Live 1975-85

    Bonnie Raitt......................Road Tested
    Eric Clapton......................Unplugged
    Boz Scaggs.......................Greatest Hits Live

    It used to be that Live Albums were of terrible quality but they've really improved the sound quality these past few years. These were my favorites.

    Cheap Trick- At Budokan

    Which to pick- the original or the double CD??

    Should be the complete concert, right? Because that's how the songs appeared in order during the show, and there's way more songs on the Complete Concert.

    However, here's my case for the single-CD, 10-song recording that came out in 1978:

    1. Every song is outstanding. On the Complete, there are 1 or 2 that are average (e.g. Can't Hold On).

    2. Even though the songs are somewhat out of sequence, it's a great sequence- start off with Hello There, then end with Clock Strikes Ten- and I Want you to Want Me goes right into Surrender.

    3. The uniqueness of a single LP- most live albums are doubles (yes, there's Live at Leeds and Get yer Ya-yas out, but most are double).

    4. It just took on a life of its own. Those songs, in that order, are what most of us identify with Budokan. Just like most of us know Meet the Beatles, and we still have a hard time with With The Beatles.

    5. It made Budokan a popular destination and title for live albums (Bob Dylan at Budokan, Ozzy at Budokan).

    It's got everything - the perfect beginning, the perfect build-up song (Ain't That A Shame), the perfect anthem (Surrender), the ideal pop song (IWYTWM), the perfect jam (Need Your Love). The best live album of all time, the single-disc Live at Budokan.

    Not a live album, but a bootleg: Animal Instincts by Pink Floyd from their show at the Oakland Coliseum in 1977.

    The big highlights being an absolutely sublime 20+ minute version of Shine On (Parts 6-9) and an encore performance of Careful With That Axe, Eugene.

    And not to mention, a great live performance of Animals.

    Seen him right after the album came out, I never could figure out the infatuation with the guy, I didn't think he was that good.

    Nice props from Joe Perry of Aerosmith:

    Twitter Q&A:

    What’s the best band you’ve ever seen live?

    “I’d say that Cheap Trick is the most consistently great band and I’ve seen them dozens of times.”

    When BB hits the peak of "Nobody Loves Me But My Mother", and the prisoners erupt, it is a moment of pure blues bliss.

    Couldn't mention this without
