One of the last of the great Genesis albums. Wind and Wuthering was the final great album Genesis album for me. After that Tony Banks disappeared into a snooze and Phil took the band the way of Queen. Illegal Alien and Radio Gaga? I have to go throw up now.

I'm seconding Grand Funk "Live" and Deep Purple "Made in Japan"
and adding Emerson, Lake and Palmer "Welcome Back My Friends to the Show That Never Ends"
and Rolling Stones "Get yer Ya Ya's Out"
Billy Cobham " Alivemuthaforya"
Black Oak Arkansas "Raunch N Roll"
And not a live venue recording but a live Direct to Disk recording of Buddy Rich "Class of '78"
I went through a faze in High school that I only bought live albums
Tommy Aldridge was freakin' miserable in Black Oak at this time, he could not get out of that contract. But you cannot deny the man's drumming all over Raunch & Roll. But, for me it's his 3 albums with The Pat Travers Band that still reign as some of Tommy's finest work.

One of my favorites is Wishbone Ash, Live Dates. Saw them in concert many times in the early 70's and their shows were always great. Plus they always toured with with other excellent British bands . . . the backups I saw were Manfred Mann's Earth Band, The Climax Blues Band, Eric Burdon and my favorite WBA night had Camel backing them when "Mirage" was released in '74. Steve Upton was such a great drummer!
