    Malcom-some live albums are boring,I have a PJ Harvey live album from 93,I`m not sure if it`s a bootleg or not but it`s like listening to Rid Of Me,it just sounds so much like the studio,why bother having it twice?I think with jazz albums when alot of the songs are done diffrently then in the studio or was`nt recorded before in a studio are more exciting,that Miles Davis album Agharta was totally improvised out of nothing mostly except for a few little themes from previous songs.I think with the MC5`s Kick Out The Jams it showed what a kick ass live band they were and the studio just held them back from their ecstatic glory.

Their studio albums are tame in comparison to this live recording.



    My mom had a great live Doors record that we used to listen to when we were little. I can see the album cover but I don’t remember the name, & I can’t find it on Cdnow or Amazon. It had a rockin’, raunchy cover of ‘Gloria’ on it…I remember my mom would rush over to the turntable and skip over it so we wouldn’t hear the sex parts, haha. But of course we’d put it back on as soon as she left.

    Other live ones I like:

    -Diamanda Galas- ‘Malediction and Prayer’
    -Elvis Presley- ’68 Comeback Special’
    -Alice in Chains- ‘MTV Unplugged’
    -Marilyn Manson- ‘The Last Tour on Earth’
    -Blues Traveler- ‘Live from the Fall’
    -Various- ‘Live at the Hootenanny, Vol 1’…great live rockabilly/swing, including Reverend Horton Heat, Mike Ness, & Lee Rocker
    -Pearl Jam- the Atlanta concert. this was broadcast on the radio in 93 or 94; I taped it on cassette but I think they later released it as a series of cds. when the concert was over, the band still had some unused on-air time, and Eddie played stuff from his personal collection to fill it up. I don’t know if that part made it to the cds, but it was great; he basically deejayed for 45 minutes after the show.

    And how cool is it that br mentioned Jason and the Scorchers?



    Bucky Ramone

    Ramones – It’s Alive
    Warren Zevon – Stand in the fire (will it ever be released on cd?????)
    16 Horsepower – Hoarse
    Townes van Zandt – Live at McCabe’s

    I have friends who used to be DJs at KCR at San Diego State University. So this is a KCR story: back in the 80s Eddie Vedder’s girlfriend was a dj there. So, Eddie at some point decided he wanted to be one too. However, they wouldn’t take him because the bands he wrote down as ones he liked all sucked. I don’t know what bands he liked–but this is what the story is. I guess they actually have a sort of test, and if you pick a bunch of shitty bands, they won’t let you be a DJ cause they don’t want that stuff played on the air.



    Not alot, I’m not a huge live records fan:

    Pumpkins – Earphoria
    Radiohead – I Might Be wrong
    NIN – And All That Could Have Been
    PJ – Live On Two Legs
    PJ – Seattle Washington (3cd set)
    MM- Last Tour On Earth
    Neil young – Live Rust
