I don't think the 80s was a very good decade for live albums. IMO the Stevie Ray Vaughn, 'Live Alive' album is one of the worst officially released live recordings ever. You can find much much better live SRV recordings out there.

There really weren't too many especially in the mid to late 80s. All I could think of are

Who's Last The Who
Still Life Rolling Stones

I like Live It Up, by David Johansen (82 or so) -- great party album & the musicians are On Fire on this album
Dave Edmunds' live one from '87, I Hear You Rockin', I like too -- sounds a little like it might've been helped along a little later in the studio but a great live album all the same

Although I'm not into headbang'in, Iron Maiden Live After Death is a pretty good live album.

I believe the guitar trio's (McLaughlin, DiMeola, Delucia) "Friday Night in San Francisco" was recorded in 1980 and released later that same year or in 1981. So there's one. Only one I can think of though. Van Halen's "Live Without A Net" from 1987 was a pretty good performance, but that was released only on video.

man thats exactly what i was going to say.

anyways most of the really good live albums have been mentioned already
aerosmith- classics live 1 and 2 (even though some of the tunes were recorded in the 70's)
twisted sister- live in hammersmith '84 (even though it was released in the 90's)
ozzy-tribute (even though there are some overdubs)

It is a shame it was never released on CD.

As far as live albums, Doomer mentions two good ones. Although the setlist for Sabbath at the beginning of that tour was better. They cut some of the tunes. Mostly faster stuff like Falling Off The Edge Of The World, Turn Up The Night and Die Young.

Saw The Johnny Van Zandt band open a bunch of shows. Earlier in the tour it was Alvin Lee with Mick Taylor on guitar with him. Totally smoked. Great nights. I wish they had done the whole tour with Sabbath.

Some not mentioned

Pink Floyd
Delicate Sound of Thunder is a good one.

Thin Lizzy
Life - The sound could be better but the playing is great.

Three favorites of mine

Gary Moore

Live At The Marquee
We Want Moore
Rockin' Every Night Live In Japan

I will have to dig through my collection, but I will say I am not that knocked out by many of the albums mentioned, and it is notable that many of these are by artists whose previous live albums were infinitely better. "Who's Last" and "Still Life" are subpar. I do love "Exit Stage Left," though I guess most of it, even if recorded in the very early 80s, is from their 1970s albums.

Tough decade indeed for live albums. I'll give "Live Evil" a big thumbs-up though.

First one that came to my mind. Sadly I traded my vinyl copy for a 12 of beer in College. LOL
