Top Ten Live Rock Albums Ever

This, of course, is entirely from my own perspective and others will have completely different opinions but as I sit here listening to Side 1 of a vinyl copy of ‘All The Worlds A Stage’ by Rush, I got to thinking, what are my top ten? So here goes:

10: Blackfoot – Highway Song
81C8K70S6PL._SL1432_

9: Kiss – Alive!
785498

8 : Lynyrd Skynyrd – One More From The Road
CS486263-01A-BIG

7: Status Quo – Live!
897791

6: Motorhead – No Sleep Til Hammersmith
588658

5: Led Zeppelin – The Song Remains The Same
109309

4: Genesis – Seconds Out
558678

3: AC/DC – If You Want Blood
231191

2: Rush – All The Worlds A Stage
431665

1: UFO – Strangers In The Night
333037

And there we have it. I know there are what might be considered essential albums that are omitted, but these are the ones that I have the most affection for, from that time when arguing about this sort of thing as a teenager was a great way to pass the time and a wonderful reason to listen to them all again.

Here is a compilation of tracks from the albums above in descending order:

Not necessarily from the albums mentioned, as they are a bit old, before youtube was even a twinkle in its creators eye, but closeish to when the albums were originally released.

Here’s what I thought about but didn’t include, let’s call them honourable mentions or something:

Judas Priest – Unleashed In The East
Rush – Exit Stage Left
Thin Lizzy – Live & Dangerous
Deep Purple – Made In Japan
Yes – Yessongs
Queen – Live Killers
Free – Live
Rainbow – On Stage

Now That’s What I Call Music Minus 17

This is an addition to the other load of these I’ve done. The premise was:

‘Now! that’s what I call Music’ is not really my thing, however, I started making up my own, going backwards from the first Now! released in 1983 and have been rather enjoying it. Full of guilty pleasures? sure. Showing my age? sure. worth sharing? Yeah, I think so, the first is numbered 0 and they will go -1, -2 etc. as we move further and further back from 1983, I ended up somewhere in the 1970’s but might keep on going a bit longer.

I’m actually in 1977, the next one, when/if I get to it will be the end of 76 into early 77.
