Unforgettable Live Sets

Heavy Theta
The list author says: "Some live sets are little more than pushing the latest studio release within a nostalgic mix. (A lot of that lately.) But when folks are on fire and it gets recorded, than something that can't be unleashed in the studio moves us with a special energy."
At Fillmore East

"I think I someone in my dorm had a copy of the first album, but this put them on the map for good."
Live At The Apollo 1962 [Remastered & Expanded]
Live At The Apollo 1962 [Remastered & Expanded]
"Hardest working man in show-biz.  Strongly recommend checking him out in the T.A.M.I. Show DVD."
Live At The Village Vanguard: The Master Takes

"Coltrane assimilated and synthesized the Avant Garde explorations mainly happening around him in NYC.  He was starting to apply some energy to modality with compelling results.  The box set is recommended."
Live-Evil

"After Bitches Brew, Miles took his new jazz-rock fusion for an extended tour.  He started with a small group whose incendiary ensemble was well captured at the Cellar Door.  The box is great, but start here with Teo's mix."
The Bootleg Series, Vol. 4: Bob Dylan Live, 1966: The "Royal Albert Hall Concert"
The Bootleg Series, Vol. 4: Bob Dylan Live, 1966: The "Royal Albert Hall Concert"
"How odd to be jeered when you are performing the greatest music of your storied career.  Wish he would let Pennebaker put together the whole film of this incredible tour."
The Complete Village Vanguard Recordings, 1961 [3 CD]
The Complete Village Vanguard Recordings, 1961 [3 CD]
"You might as well get all of this.  You will never hear such moving grace so perfectly presented as this short lived celebration."
Live / Dead
Live / Dead
"No band comes close in attracting an active cult following of it's many shows.  It would be hard to reach any consensus among the heads which is best, but this is both early and requisite."
Space Ritual
Space Ritual
"You'd be hard pressed to find a more conducive evening of mindless, alternative jamming.  Some connection with the headier Amon Duul II and the beginnings of Krautrock."
Live At Berkeley
Live At Berkeley
"Probably better to catch him on DVD for all his showmanship, but this is a damn good set."
Waiting for Columbus
Waiting for Columbus
"They couldn't break into the popular charts, but Little Feat were enormously beloved by an enlightened red-necked elite, especially around the nation's capitol.  This album is particularly cherished."
Live!
Live!
"Strange for a man to experience such celebration on the road, only to keep returning to the turmoil back home."
Mingus at Antibes
Mingus at Antibes
"Mingus was a giant of a man.  Here playing with the likes of Eric Dolphy and Bud Powell."
Thelonious Monk Quartet with John Coltrane at Carnegie Hall
Thelonious Monk Quartet with John Coltrane at Carnegie Hall
"What a tremendous find.  Modern jazz truly at the crossroads here."

It's Too Late To Stop Now: Live (2CD)
"Caledonia soul is always a soothing gift, but very heaven in person."
MTV Unplugged in New York
MTV Unplugged in New York
"Such drama and tension, even before people realized that this was a death note."
Get Yer Ya-Ya's Out!
Get Yer Ya-Ya's Out!
"No slight on Brian, but the Stones were at their strongest when Mick Taylor was firing on all cylinders."
Night At The Village Vanguard
Night At The Village Vanguard
"The old man still plays divinely.  But the young man's horn cut here like nobody else ever could."
Live in Europe
Live in Europe
"In the summer of love, Redding, backed by the MG's, was performing with such emotion that it tore your heart out.  Most of us were just becoming aware when he was suddenly taken away."
Nothing Is
Nothing Is
"You might say that Sun Ra's normal home studio set-up was not much more than live recording.  But after reaching a creative height in the mid-60's he began touring the Arkestra with a vengeance.  Too bad the visuals are not readily available."
The Name of This Band is Talking Heads
The Name of This Band is Talking Heads
"Starting out as a pretty tense combo, the Heads expanded their range into unsuspected diversity with their friend Brian Eno."
Live in Tokyo
Live in Tokyo
"I Sing the Body Electric was a thrilling album, especially for it's few live tracks that would later be re-released within the context of the whole amazing set."
Live At Leeds (Remastered)
Live At Leeds (Remastered)
"These guys were even better on stage than their current involvement with forensic evidence."
Roxy & Elsewhere
Roxy & Elsewhere
"His best band?  Hard to beat the original Mothers in their prime.  But this is pretty lively stuff."
