I have great doubts about this list--primarily for two reasons.
1-It omits Deep Purple's Made in Japan--an iconic live album of gargantuan value.
2-It includes Intensities in Ten Cities. This album was lame--especially compared to Double Live Gonzo, if you must include a Ted Nugent album. Intensities includes the absolute worst cover ever of Land of a Thousand Dances. For that reason alone it should not be on the list.

But then, these lists are about opinions, and not to be taken too seriously, so I'll just state my opinions as well, and not write you off.

I also would have included the Scorpions' Tokyo tapes.

I think Thin Lizzy's Live and Dangerous needs an honorable mention at least. I only knew Boys and Jailbreak before I heard that. They jam out some pure classic rock with a hard finesse that is pure gold

Without question this should always be on the list.

AC/DC Live should have been on that list.

Creo que en la lista pudieron haber estado si desea que la sangre de AC / DC y Tribute de Ozzy con Randy Rhoads, pero como es que omitieron Live After Death de Iron Maiden y Made in Japan de Deep Purple por el amor de Dios! !!!!!!!

I loved that Guns and Roses "Live Era: 87-93" double album!

Van Halen's "Live: Right Here Right Now" was pretty cool too.

I love 'em. I wish radio would play more.
I first heard several Iron Maiden songs live then heard the much slower studio versions & was disappointed. When I hear the studio version of Hallowed, Total Eclipse, Icarus, & a couple others, they sound weak compared to the live version.

Me, I woulda added " Tribute " by Ozzy ( featurng Randy Rhoads)," Decade of Aggression" by Slayer and would swap "Double Live Gonzo " by Nugent for " Intensities...".. Good list though!

Well, i'm sure everyone will have their own personal differences with this list and my own opinions, but....i would have included The Who Live at Leeds, Allman Brothers Live at the Fillmore East, Neil Young & Crazy Horse Live Rust, and The Band The Last Waltz.
