    couple of my favourites already got a mention; Motorhead, No Sleep till Hammersmith and Hawkwind , Space Ritual..

    I see Neil Young 'Rust never Sleeps' gets a mention but my favourite Neil Young live disc is 'Live at the cellar door'

    really sounds like you are in small venue listening to him right in front of you..

    The movie came out when I was a student, and already a fan. I could not find anyone to go with me to see it, and it was only on at an art house cinema in Birmingham. I went even though I knew it finished before my last train home, and consequently I spent the night “sleeping” rough in News Street Station. Many years later I bought the CD and then the DVD, and I ripped the DVD so I could listen to the extra tracks.

    A great album and an even better movie.

    At the height of punk, UFO still commanded a huge following. Sadly Tonka, Raymond and Way have left us now, but such a fine band in the 1970's!

    For me it has to be Stupidity - Dr Feelgood. The hardest working band of the 70/80/90's. The combination of Wilko's mad staccato rhythm and Lee Brilleaux's over the top exuberance and sheer showmanship saw this album at number 1. Led Zeppelins favourite band at the time, saw them play at Zeppelins end of tour party after Earls Court!

    Two of my favourites....

    Deep Purple - Concerto for Group and Orchestra, live at the Royal Albert Hall with the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra. Shows off Jon Lord's talents to the full as he composed it.

    Pink Floyd - Pulse. The LED on my CD copy still pulses, but I have to put the battery in the opposite way to that shown on the battery holder, strange.
    Best Regards - Peter

    I hate being bipolar, its brilliant.

    Tonka was a great guitarist but not a patch on Schenker. Listen to the solos on Love to Love on Strangers in the Night and Live in Oxford for the comparison.

    Saw UFO with Schenker in 1978 incredible! And Paul Raymond with his right hand Les Paul Junior played upside down as a left hooker

    A couple that are perennially on my playlist;

    Iron Maiden - Live after Death - I remember receiving this on cassette together with a Walkman one Christmas, probably not far off 40 years ago. Made a big impression and still sounds epic now.

    Alison Krause & Union Station - Live - Another one that made a big impression, only 20 years ago this time.

    Interesting to realise how my tastes have developed over the years.

    Oh, I can’t pass up the opportunity to also mention Cardiacs - Live, and Muse - Haarp. Jeez, there are just too many...

    This. They had it all in that moment. Saw 3 shows on that tour. Untouchable.

  21. #71
    Most of my favourites have been mentioned... Alchemy, S&M, Live after Death, Last Waltz, San Quentin etc

    I'll add:

    Roxy & Elsewhere / The Best Band you never Heard in your life - Frank Zappa (can't decide which)
    How the West was Won - Led Zeppelin (a better album than The Song Remains the Same from the same tour I think)
    Where the Light Is - John Mayer (a bit divisive but I love this album.... three concerts in one)

    I saw them twice at their peak, late 1975 at the Liverpool Stadium, which was a small boxing venue and then again in early 1976 when they had progressed to the Liverpool Empire. Great concerts and manic raw rock n roll from a group I didn’t really know at the time, but turned out to be a great time to see them.

    Another vote for Alchemy, Dire Straits. Especially ‘Tunnel of Love’.

    Also anything live from Lynyrd Skynyrd in the 70’s before the plane crash, Pink Floyd’s Comfortably Numb Live from Pompei, Thin Lizzy Live & Dangerous.

    Can't believe no-one has mentioned Jimi!

    Dylan Live 1966 Albert Hall is my all time favourite.

    Two albums of live performances as well.

    Zappa - Guitar. Watermelon in Easter Hay wowsers.

    Nirvana - From the muddy banks of the wishkah. Powerful raw performances.

    Some great choices already.
    I watched Stop Making Sense on the big TV with the soundbar up as far as I could get away with on Saturday night.
    And I grew up on most of the rock ones.

    Can I add Entreat by The Cure to the list?

    My two favourites have already had a mention:

    Paul Weller - Live Wood
    Neil Young - Live Rust 'my guitar, my guitar!'

    How could I forget Weld.

    That was the tour with Sonic Youth when they really cranked up the volume/distortion...if you watch the video on Youtube there are some dazed faces in the audience 🤣

    I seem to remember reading Young ended up damaging his hearing on the tour...

    Couple of others mentioned I forgot about:

    Depeche Mode - 101

    and of course

    Ramones - It's alive (I wasn't there but saw them at the Lyceum a few years later, they were brilliant!)

    I'm lucky to have looked after Barnesy when he did a signing at Tower Records, I've seen him 3 times in London, plus Ian Moss & Cold Chisel once each. If you like Cold Chisel I think you'll like the Angels too, roughly contemporary to Chisel, came up via Vanda & Young like AC/DC & Rose Tattoo.

    A bit left field but Collosseum Live (c 1971 if my memory serves) a great double album, Lost Angeles and Rope ladder to the Moon standout tracks when the band were at the peak of their powers. Cheers,John B4

    I was just about to post this, its a great album and fantastic how work the orchestra into the songs. Was not keen on S&M 2.

    As a one off live song, I always enjoy Iron Maiden - Fear of the dark, they had a version from South America many years

    Another shout for Strangers in the Night.

    And, Judas Priest - Unleashed in the East. Also check out them playing the US Festival in 1983 (on YT) I think - just incredible live.

    Another one I’ve remembered from a misspent youth.

    Uriah Heep - Live 1973

    The version of Sweet Lorraine is quite the thing.
