1. ABB-Fillmore Concerts (If that's cheating, I'd take Fillmore East).
2. a. Yessongs
b. Keys to Ascension I
c. An Evening of Yes Music Plus (Anderson, Bruford, Wakeman, and Howe)
I'd give each of these a very critical listen, then choose one.
3. Is There Anybody Out There? (Live Wall, PF)
4. Live in Chicago, Luther Allison
5. Assuming Live Compilations are allowed, I'd probably flip a coin between Blues at Newport and Bluegrass at Newport

Re: pick five -
I would highly, Highly, HIGHLY recommend either or both of these excellent mixes of old masters and contemporary hot shots (of the mid 60's). The teachers and the students, you could say. For instance, the Blues disc contains performances from Mississippi John Hurt and Rev. Gary Davis from the Old School, then tunes by John Hammond Jr. and Dave Von Ronk. The Bluegrass disc features Lester Flatt and Earl Scruggs early on, then the New Lost City Ramblers a little later. Great intros to the two genres.

Miscellany: (sp?)
Johnny Winter And, Live. Hmmm. I was going to choose this, but substituted the Luther Allison set instead. The Mean Town Blues and It's My Own Fault are both incredible, and the Good Morning, Little Schoolgirl is one of the finest examples of interlaced leads that I can think of, but . . . I've always said to myself, Johnny Winter makes some of the best blues and worst rock and roll out there. I really don't like the rest of that album - so, honorable mention, perhaps, but not in the top five.

And oh, hell. I just thought of Live with a Little Help from our Friends. Old Luther might have to wait until next time.

Ok here goes
ABB-LAFE-not only the best live album, but I think the best album of all time
Guy Clark-Keepers-This stays in the changer. Amazing
BB King-Live at the Regal-Ladies and Gentlemen, The King of the Blues, the Chairman of the Board of all the Blues Singers, BB King!!!!
Bruce Springsteen-Live 1975-85-springsteen at his peak as a performer, still hoping for a single show from someplace like the Roxy or Agora circa 75-78
Wet Willie-Dripin Wet-the best of the southern bands that followed in the tracks of the ABB

Honorable mention- Poco, Deliverin', Delbert McClinton, Live from Austin, Yes, yessongs, G Dead, Europe 72, Derek and the Dominoes, Live at the Fillmore, Humble Pie, Performance live at the Fillmore (I think that was the title)

Well, if folks are gonna add in a few extras, so am I (Goliath - that's just shameless to play twice) :

I'll also go with the Who's Live at Leeds. I think Eric Clapton's Unplugged is brilliant (surprised nobody else has mentioned this one), as is most of 24 Nights. Stones' Ya Yas of course. There is a Herbie Hancock/Chick Corea acoustic piano duo thing that used to be out on vinyl, but not sure if that's out of print now. And I like ABB's 1st Set too. Oh, and how can I forget the Jimi Hendrix Concerts from the old Reprise Records days (do live compilations count?). So that's my dozen faves!!

all the albums chosen so far are pretty much the cream of the crop, double live gonzo was a gem. how about these...

just one night-clapton in japan, nice jams on rambin on my mind

any dix picks? i have a soft spot for 10

alchemy-dire straits before the whole money for nothing thing, once upon a time in the west is beautiful

what about running on empty? half is live and the other half is from some motel room or
backstage. that was pure jackson browne

j.geils blow your face out- just for house party

allman albums are taken for granted as is ya ya's

OK, so I am a shameless cheater. No argument. I'm guilty. And I'll be guilty all of the rest of my life....How come I never do, what I'm supposed to do?
