Not sure these are the best, but a few of my favorites

ABB- Made a nice mix. I have been listening to the Chuck and Lamar era. Tracksf from Wipe the
The Windows, Deluxe live stuff form Bros and Sis , and Nassau Coliseum.

Deep Purple- Made In Japan
Anything RB was on with them or Rainbow is always on my list.
California Jamming is real ggod. Mark III lineup.
Perfect Strangers Live is one that might be overlooked. Its From 1984 , mix the songs from
PS with the classics. Some great Lord v Blackmore battles on there. Lord is "wicked " on
those tracks.


UFO-Strangers In the Night-Nuff said!!


Iron Maiden-Maiden Japan
I like the early IM stuff with Paul. The band really has more of a punk ,street type vibe.


MSG-Live At Rockpalast: Hamburg 1981 and One Night At Budokan
Early MSG stuff. Young hungry band with strong players.


Tommy Bolin & Friends : Live at Ebbets Field June 3 & 4, 1974

Does not get any better than Crazed Fandango. He is just on fire .

jsz, nice picks. Agree in particular about live Blackmore and also the Tommy Bolin 1974 live is really remarkable.

Blackey, folks are just busting your chops. Because everyone who is here already knows AFE is great, the discussion goes in different directions. It's like how, on the Zepp pages, very few people weigh in on whether or not "Stairway to Heaven" is a good song or not; its greatness has been established for decades, so people move on to discuss different ideas rather than repeating what is already well known.

Jim nobody can really bust my chops here. The point is, the Allman Brothers Band is my favorite band and I will never forget the spiritual connection and joy I felt when I saw them the first time. I had never been baptized if you will, in a style of music played by a specific group of musicians before. And everyone of the musicians were different yet when they played together the collective sound was as close to perfect I had ever experienced. It was magical
And the live album At Fillmore East, with the live tracks on Eat A Peach, is a recorded record of that sound that grabbed me at age 23 in 1970. Later lineups of the ABB were various degrees of very good but it was never the same. To experience the real ABB sound I need the original six. Duane Allman and Berry Oakley were enough different than later players that it is not exactly the same.

But I listen to later lineups regularly and many of the live albums my adversaries like better than Fillmore East. My hunch is most of my adversaries here are actually Derek Trucks fans and what they call the ABB must have Derek Trucks and perhaps Warren Haynes in it or it falls short of the sound they are attracted too. It's as if they are fans of a different band than the one I'm into and for all intents and purposes they are.

But I enjoy all kinds of music including Derek Trucks.

Lately I've been attracted to the Russian folk song "Moscow Nights". Here it is sung by the great Russian singer Dmitri Hvorostovsky who recently died of brain cancer at age 55.

Good ones - again the name of the deleted thread was, What live records do you like better than Fillmore East
None for me, but in addition to Yaya’s, Jimi Hendrix/Otis Redding Live at Monterey is right there
Where We All Belong was mentioned a couple of times on the deleted thread, a worthy mention indeed

Could it be that all versions of the ABB have been incredibly good? Is it possible that the lineups that people saw live themselves were just as moving TO THEM as seeing the original six was to people who saw them? If a person was not born before 1955, they probably never saw the original ABB. All lineups have been built for seeing in person, not for listening to later. People who love Derek, or Warren, or Jack, or Oteil, or Woody, etc. aren't hating the original six. Maybe another lineup is what they were "baptized" into.

The best version of the ABB is the one that you can buy a ticket to see right now, whenever right now was or is. It has been a lot of different lineups, but if you went to a show in 1989, 1997, 1999, 2000, or 2001 complaining that some former lineup wasn't in front of your face, you wasted money and time that would have been incredible had you just soaked it in. Recordings are great, but they are not the same as being there, no matter what.

Obviously, the original lineup was incredible.

Obviously, the last lineup was incredible.

Chuck Leavell was hired by five of the original six. Jimmy Herring was hired by three of the original six. Everyone else was hired by four of the original six.

adhill 58. I agree with your post. Yes depending where you jump on the ABB bus, what is that special sound that grabbed you could be different.

I caught the bug in January, 1970. And saw the original band about 15 times. When I say the original band is the REAL Allman Brothers, it's because later lineups didn't sound exactly like the original. The way Duane Allman and Berry Oakley played was GONE. And it was missing when I heard later lineups. The band never sounded like the way it did when I caught the bug again.

And to me, and to some band members such as Gregg, Butch and Jaimoe, there was a vibe and energy that flowed from Duane Allman that was forever lost. I am not dissing anyone in later lineups. The Chuck/Lamar lineup was the most successful and the last line up lasted the longest and both could leave a trail of smoke on the stage.

Later lineups can't play Fillmore East better than the originial and that is the way the band was suppose to sound. Later lineups can play those songs differently but not better. To me the best sound is the original. To younger fans it is a later lineup. In the mid 70's a big number of fans didn't discover the band until Brothers and Sisters came out. A lot of those dropped off by 1975 and 76.

Good music from all the lineups. I enjoy all the lineups actually.

Check out the last 2 minutes of this. Great music but not exactly our kind of music. The bass player is absolutely incredible. And all of the musicians are excellent and at the end REALLY HOOK TOGETHER and are jus smoking!!!!

https://youtu.be/QJzsV9Mscgk

Anyone who enjoys great musicians and hot playing will like this even if it's not our type of music. This is live jazz.

I don't think anything is BETTER, but also really great, top-shelf stuff? I'd include these:

Bob Marley & The Wailers - Live!
Derek Trucks Band - Live at Georgia Theatre
Jimi Hendrix - Band of Gypsys
Talking Heads - The Name of This Band is Talking Heads
Neil Young - Live at Massey Hall (solo acoustic/piano) or Live at the Fillmore East (with Crazy Horse)

I dig all the Pigpen Era live releases tonz. With all the shows available, it's a rarity to put on those "official" releases.

I have the Live at the Fillmore East album, which has a lot more songs from the same shows. It's funny about Band of Gypsys — for years I rarely listened to any of its tracks other than Machine Gun because it doesn't have any of my favorite songs from the studio albums and I prefer Mitch Mitchell's playing to Buddy Miles' and his singing and carrying on. But Power of Soul is the best guitar riff ever created in my opinion, Machine Gun is a piece of art, Them Changes is the best wah-wah workout there is, and the whole album has a muscular power that sets it apart from Jimi's perfectionism in the studio. It's just great.

The first live album I remember everyone going nuts for when it was released was Grand Funk Live Album. Everyone was playing it and talking about it. At the time it seemed to set the bar for live albums.

That is a good one for me, but I will say that the Rastaman Vibration deluxe release has a 1976 Roxy show that is the best live Marley release I've ever heard. My go-to Marley live music.

I think that's a less-hot show, but it's definitely good! Live is short and sweet and that one stretches out longer. Here's the thing: they didn't include the whole show! The encore was missing. It's Positive Vibration, then a Get Up Stand Up > No More Trouble > War > No More Trouble > Get Up Stand Up medley that lasts TWENTY FOUR MINUTES! It's by far the best thing about that set. It was released in full as Live at the Roxy in 2003.

I urge everyone to check out The Black Crowes live at The Greek featuring Jimmy Page. If there’s anyone who could pull off old school Plant, it’s Chris Robinson, and be sure nailed those Zeppelin tunes. Page never lost a step either. Was fortunate to be a couple rows back for a show on this tour.


Heck ya brother!!! Hard to believe it's been 20 yrs ago.
Chris did an OUTSTANDING job. I am not sure anyone else could have pulled that off.

There were rumors of BC and JP doing more. Gorman has details in his book.
