I think this topic has been touched on before but I thought it might make for an enlightening thread topic.
As much as I love the live albums of my favorite artists, I think the studio is where an artist is most "definitive". I think the ART of music is meant for the recorded medium (layering, sound effects, overdubs).
Of course, some artists are "definitive" both ways (Led Zeppelin, for instance). Still, whenever I think of them, I think of their studio catalogue not their live show. But this is just my opinion and a result of how I've been conditioned to their music.
