    You’re too cool. But what about (IMHO):

    * Frampton Comes Alive
    * Kiss Alice
    * Skynyrd’s One More from the Road

    The Who Live at Leeds.
    Cheap Trick LIve at Budokan even if it was touched up in the studio a lot.
    Butthole Surfers PCP PEP. Basically the definitive document of how to handle a show in front of 15 angry people when you don’t know how to play your instruments.

    Indeed, I intentionally left the Last Waltz off the list because a) Before the Flood and Rock of Ages are both better live albums and b) there isn’t much on that album that wasn’t tracked later in a studio.
