Donny Hathaway Live and Tower of Power Live and in Living Color are my faves. Live and in Living Color was originally to be a double LP, and I've got all the tracks they dropped from the initial album, in perfect fidelity.

Kiss Alive 2, the first album I ever owned. I think in 1st or 2nd grade.
Yessongs, completely blew my mind. My first exposure to YES. 7th grade.
Rush...Exit Stage Left, many hours enjoyably and frustratingly learning Freewill, Jacob's Ladder and La Villa Strangiato. 8th grade.

Elton John, Dee Murray, Nigel Olsson

At the time of the performance, it was never intended to be released, but bootleg versions were so popular...

His raw, live work was a fascinating counterpoint to the more subdued orchestral pop vibe of his studio work.

For some reason, the tracks on the CD are not in the actual performance order. The liner notes give the correct order, so after I ripped the CD to mp3 files, I put the tracks in the correct order in iTunes. Killer performance in 1957 with Sonny Payne on the first six tunes and Jo Jones on last six, including an almost 10-minute long rendition of One O'Clock Jump.

I'm a jam band guy, as far as listening not playing. So, anything from Phish basically. Phish LIVE is great, they have many many many live shows. Grateful Dead EUROPE '72 (the original one)--probably their best as far as I'm concerned.

Scorpions WORLD WIDE LIVE--love that album.

So many great records listed... now I will break the streak with my weird selection... Kenny Loggins Alive! Recorded direct to master over 2 nights I think. Trish is just outstanding!!

For me I will also toss in TOTO - Falling In Between Live as well as James Taylor Live with Carlos Vega.
