Smokin' at the Half Note - Wes Montgomery

In reply to an earlier post on May 10, 2009 2:11:02 PM PDT
These are all OK records, but nothing comes close to The Who LIve at Leeds, my dears.

There just isn't anything remotely like it.

Genesis : "Seconds Out"
My fave live album of all time; but hands down the greatest sounding live recording I've ever heard.
I don't understand why technology used in the mid 70's cannot and has not been duplicated to this day.

bdlove regarding your May 10, 2009 post:
"These are all OK records, but nothing comes close to The Who LIve at Leeds, my dears.
There just isn't anything remotely like it."

"Live at Leeds" was first mentioned in the 3rd post on July 6, 2007. It is well known as one of the greatest live albums ever! I believe we are having an exchange here to share our opinions & maybe find some new music. If "Live at Leeds" is the only one, what would be the point of the discussion?

In addition to what has been posted, my faves are:
Silver by Cheap Trick
Live Baby Live by INXS
H.A.A.R.P. by Muse
Live at Wembley Stadium by Queen
The Best of Blur (Live) by ---Blur!
World Wide Live by The Scorpions
