Hendrix in the West is an extreme example of that, it is really a live comp from performances expanding one and a half year at both sides of the pond.

But it was so much part of my teenage soundtrack that I had to vote for it, though I certainly know that it was using a space where much better records would fit more properly.
Nobody's ferpect.

Now if they ever release the real" Hendrix Live At The Royal Albert Hall" the genre may take on new gravitas.Sadly,I doubt they ever will.

If I recall correctly both My. My, Hey, Hey, and Hey, Hey My, My are different recordings between RNS and LR. That said, I agree with you that the inclusion of Rust Never Sleeps is a bit odd, considering that there are two tracks recorded in the studio. And yes, Time Fades Away would have been a more appropriate choice.

But then, RNS is the only place where you can find Thrasher, a fact that can justify almost anything.


I thought it was more a case of two tracks live and the rest in the studio. Will have to go check my copy of Shakey....

According to Wikipedia:
"My My, Hey Hey (Out of the Blue)", "Thrasher" and "Ride My Llama" were recorded live at the Boarding House in early 1978 and all of side two was recorded during the late 1978 tour. Two songs from the album were not recorded live: "Sail Away" was recorded without Crazy Horse during or after the Comes a Time recording sessions, and "Pocahontas" had been recorded solo around 1975.

I still don't think of it as a live album though.

Why is Rust-era Neil Young on the list twice for both Live Rust (LR) and Rust Never Sleeps (RNS).

Either way, seems a bit odd in that RNS could easily have given way to Time Fades Away


It's Too Late is being reissued; believe it will include 3 shows from that tour & an unseen BBC(?) special.

No, the recordings on Live Rust and Rust Never Sleeps are different as far as I know.

Too Late is coming out on its own, while there'll be a 3 CD and DVD box set of other shows from that tour plus - I would imagine - the BBC special shown on Whistle Test at the time (there is more footage of the show on bootleg)

Essentially true


It's Too Late to Stop Now, of course, is Morrison’s 1974 double album with his Caledonia Soul Orchestra, capturing concert recordings from his May to July 1973 tour at Los Angeles’ famed Troubadour, the Santa Monica Civic Center, and London’s Rainbow Theatre. The remastered original album will be available on both CD and vinyl, while the CDs of Volumes II-IV collect previously unreleased concert recordings from those three venues. The DVD included in the 3-CD set contains professionally-shot footage from the Rainbow Theatre stand which originally aired on the BBC in the U.K. but has never before been commercially available.


Full line-ups are on Amazon as we speak.

Yeah, without checking I seem to remember them both being released around the same time - I saw the Rust Never Sleeps film in 1979 at a midnight showing in Texas, and shortly thereafter I had Live Rust, on 8-track. HAHA

Yes! (Although similarly to Rust Never Sleeps, it's mostly new songs, so it almost doesn't feel quite like a live album in spirit.)

I did not know that.

The Boarding House was a great San Francisco nightclub. . .

The Boarding House was a nightclub located at 960 Bush Street in San Francisco, California. Steve Martin's first three albums, Let's Get Small, A Wild and Crazy Guy, and Comedy Is Not Pretty were recorded there, in whole or in part. Robin Williams was also a stand up mainstay at the venue. The club was also host to a multitude of musical acts, such as Dolly Parton, Patti Smith, Neil Young, Bette Midler, Billy Joel, Bob Marley, Mason Williams, The Tubes, Talking Heads, Old and in the Way, Randy Newman, Dan Hicks & His Hot Licks, Jim Croce, Harry Chapin and Tom Waits. British progressive rock group Camel played there on 6/26/76 in a performance that was broadcast on KSAN-FM, and cult favorites The Residents also first played there. Ellen DeGeneres and Jay Leno have said they first met at The Boarding House
