Mmmm.
Obviously a matter of taste and opinion...but how The Who Live at Leeds can not make anybody's best TEN is a little beyond me ;^)

Elvis--"Tiger Man" ('68 NBC Special "sit-down" set. Incredible.)
Marley & Wailers: "Live"
B.B. King: "Live At The Regal"
Dylan: "Bootleg Series, Vol. 4: The 'Royal Albert Hall' Concert"
Neil Young: "Time Fades Away" (out-of-print)
Neil Young & Crazy Horse: "Weld"
Neil Young: "Unplugged"
Neil Young & Crazy Horse: "Year Of The Horse"
Neil Young & Crazy Horse: "Live At The Fillmore East, 1970"
Gram Parsons & The Fallen Angels: "Live, 1973"
Grateful Dead: "Live/Dead"
Jerry Lee Lewis: "Live At The Star Club, Hamburg, 1964"

"Ya-Ya's" is there, obviously. Also, the El Mocambo material on "Love You Live" (and assorted boots) is pretty amazing. I wish there was a proper live album...

Allman Brothers Band.

There, I couldn't let this thread go on much longer without mention of one of the the greatest live bands out there. My favourite American band, I think. They are SO skilled AND soulful. You can't go wrong with any of their live albums. As far as direct, genuine blues goes, not a white group can surpass them (btw, this takes nothing away from brilliant ORIGINAL work from the Stones or Zeppelin).

I'm with Spud too.

I played Live a Leeds so much in high school that my parents told me that they'd take it away if they heard it one more time...then came the headphones.

Not only should it be in the top ten, it should be #1.

Are you talking the deluxe, full concert version or the original five track album? And have you heard the uncut bootleg?
