Best Live Blues Albums
#21
Hi Latorius,

I also love live albums. I started a thread on this - STUDIO vs LIVE albums.

You mentioned a few new ones. I'll have to check them out.

What are some of your " many many more " ?

Here are some off the top of my head, unfortunately my collection (CD and Vinyl) is in boxes with my son, as I am in mid move at present.

Nina Simone - Live at Newport - the first track is a killer, there are many more good live recordings of Nina, but names escape me.
Allman Bros - Any of their Live albums with Duane
Jerry Garcia Band - I have at least 7 CD's, all are mellow stretching out exercises for Garcia, but are all well worth a listen.
Traffic - Welcome to the Canteen
Steve Miller Band - Live
Steve Miller Band - The sessions (Live from Shady Grove)
Jimmy Smith - Live in 69
Jimmy Smith - The Champ - Live in 62, and many more
Laura Nyro - Spread your wings and fly
John Hiatt - Hiatt comes alive in Budokan (recorded at small venues in the states
Steve Earle - Live at the BBC
Lucinda Williams - Live at the Filmore
Emmylou Harris - Spyboy Live at the Exit Inn
Emmylou Harris - Live in Germany
Joni Mitchell - Miles of Aisles

and 2 that were recommended that I left off my list

BB King - Live at the Regal
Albert King - Live Wire/Blues Power

There are many more but at this time my brain is not in gear.

lol, sounds familiar
after my last move, my vinyl stays in the boxes.
listens are randomly selected from there and it works just as well
nobody to impress anyway

One of my all time favorite live-albums is BB King - Live in Cook County Jail

A great jazz live album is Dynasty by stan Getz recorded at ronnie scotts in 1971 he has organ guitar and drums behind him and it is almost a very early form of jazz fusion.
