Top Ten Live Rock Albums Ever

This, of course, is entirely from my own perspective and others will have completely different opinions but as I sit here listening to Side 1 of a vinyl copy of ‘All The Worlds A Stage’ by Rush, I got to thinking, what are my top ten? So here goes:

10: Blackfoot – Highway Song
81C8K70S6PL._SL1432_

9: Kiss – Alive!
785498

8 : Lynyrd Skynyrd – One More From The Road
CS486263-01A-BIG

7: Status Quo – Live!
897791

6: Motorhead – No Sleep Til Hammersmith
588658

5: Led Zeppelin – The Song Remains The Same
109309

4: Genesis – Seconds Out
558678

3: AC/DC – If You Want Blood
231191

2: Rush – All The Worlds A Stage
431665

1: UFO – Strangers In The Night
333037

And there we have it. I know there are what might be considered essential albums that are omitted, but these are the ones that I have the most affection for, from that time when arguing about this sort of thing as a teenager was a great way to pass the time and a wonderful reason to listen to them all again.

Here is a compilation of tracks from the albums above in descending order:

Not necessarily from the albums mentioned, as they are a bit old, before youtube was even a twinkle in its creators eye, but closeish to when the albums were originally released.

Here’s what I thought about but didn’t include, let’s call them honourable mentions or something:

Judas Priest – Unleashed In The East
Rush – Exit Stage Left
Thin Lizzy – Live & Dangerous
Deep Purple – Made In Japan
Yes – Yessongs
Queen – Live Killers
Free – Live
Rainbow – On Stage

    I like Pulse and to be honest never thought of it. On any given day though this top ten could easily change depending on what I’ve been listening to.
