Dam I miss Gary Richrath
Hard to get any better than this
My other favorite live album is the 1978 Springsteen Capital Theater show, released as a three disc bootleg that I purchased in Morristown, NJ forty-two years ago. Crazy. It was called Piece De Resistance and I see that it's just been made available on Springsteen's site.
Here's a video of the encores that night. I was not at this show, unfortunately, but I've seen him in tiny venues numerous times over the years. This is the recording that captures the way I remember him when I used to think of him as the Boss. I remember taking my college girlfriend from Indianapolis to see him at Madison Square Garden in 1980 after blowing all the other acts off the stage at the 1979 No Nukes show. Some of his first large arena shows as a headliner. "You people treat him like a God." She was gobsmacked. My own girlfriend referred to me as "you people." It was great.
The one and only best live rock and roll album !
This is one of my favourite live albums, I heard/taped the version of Faith Healer from it on the same show, the Tom Russell Rock Show, where I heard/taped the Grateful Dead track I posted last night. The beginning's just an intro if anyone thinks it's going to be an album of classical music.

This is from what was seen as a low point in the bands career, a failed attempt at a commercial album and the original band either all leaving or fired with just Don remaining. John 'Drumbo' Frenchs' book about his time with the band is a really good read. I think for a low point they sound exceptionally good here.
Here are my three. From one end to the other end of the spectrum.
Dave Matthews and Tim Reynolds ‘Live at Luther College’
The Martins sound perfect. I don’t know how they recorded it, but it sounds amazing.
Rush...exit stage left
