I thought I'd put together a fun list of my favorite live albums. I really, really appreciate live albums that are mixed/done properly and I feel it's more indicative of the act's quality. Feel free to give your own lists! I noticed an older thread but wanted to work my brain and build a definitive list. 5. Violent Femmes - Live at the Hacienda* 4. Talking Heads - Stop Making Sense 3. King Crimson - The Great Deceiver 2. Led Zeppelin - How The West Was Won 1. Portishead - Roseland NYC Live *Violent Femmes' live recordings featured on the compilation album "Add It Up: 1982-1983" are amazing, but since it's not technically on a live album the recent release definitely tracks.
