How about Neil Young Time Fades Away? It was all new material at the time, and contains several straight up Shakey classics: "Don't Be Denied", "The Bridge", "LA" and the title track. Add to the fact that it's out of print and never been issued on CD. Television The Blow Up for the 14 minutes of awesome that is "Little Johnny Jewel".

Better. And now here's the rest of the original comment:

I had this discussion once and solicited about two or three dozen responses for favorite live albums, which I then compiled into a long list and bored everyone to tears with by emailing it out to all the folks on my distribution list. Just off the top of my head, I'll go with these:

1. A Night In San Francisco, Van Morrison
2. The Real Thing, Taj Mahal
3. Get Yer Ya-Yas Out, Rolling Stones
4. Live At The Fillmore East, Allman Brothers Band

Yo La Tengo, "Daphnia," I'm Not Afraid Of You And I Will Beat Your AssThe Wombats, "Dr. Susan Mattox, PhD," A Guide to Love, Loss, and DesperationPavement, "Stereo," Brighten the Corners: Nicene Creedence EditionMilloy, "Evil Kenevil," More Than A MachineBonus: Hotpants Romance, "Sugar Dip," It's a HeatwaveLots of local touring band purchases explain the obscurities. I loved "Discovering Japan" when it came out, but don't know the album. It's hard to make a case for a live album's greatness because you already love the band to buy them. Few live albums are truly breakouts, and the one that springs to mind (other than the already mentioned Cheap Trick) Frampton Comes Alive I hated and still do. I wore out Yessongs, literally, and had to replace it. I loved Lou Reed's Rock N' Roll Animal just for Steve Hunter's "Sweet Jane" intro. 801 Live remains a favorite.
