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.)


Good call! My first Strawbs album that went MIA. :(

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.


Interesting, I don't either. ;)

That Seeger Live Bullet spent a lot of time on the turntable in the mid 1970s, usually at high volume, usually Friday and/or Saturday night. Mind altering substances may have been involved. :lol: Many a par tay had that as part of the soundtrack.


This isn't a party album but Richard Thompson's solo acoustic Across A Crowded Room is really terrific. For a while it was highly sought after because the lp went OOP and wasn't issued on cd except maybe once n Japan of at all I rhnk so Thmpson fans were really wanting that one for a while. It did get released domestically a while back I think. I have two copies on lp so I'm good.

My two faves are Seconds Out and Flashes From The Archives of Oblivion.
At the time I hugely loved Wings Over America.

[pedant mode]Ahem - the one you mean is Small Town Romance[/pedant mode]. ;)

It is a pity that no official live album of Richard and Linda was released at the time. RT really should have augmented the blazing hot jams of Calvary Cross and Night Comes In with some more tracks for a proper live (double) album.

Some really dreadful shit doing well here.

The IDEA that a tenth-rate provincial act such as UFO put out a good live album is absolutely laughable.

Coming from the world's biggest Fall fan makes this statement uniquely ironic.

I'm surprised Bob Marley isn't doing better. That album is monumental.

I voted for it - pretty iconic
I gotta say I like Marley's Live at the Roxy more (and spin it more) - the 20+ minute "No More Trouble"/"War" medley's just great

Voted for Otis/Jimi too though I would've voted for the absent Live In Europe by Otis (which is one of the greatest live soul albums rivaling Live at the Apollo)above that one. Otis' Live at the Whisky A Go-Go is a fave of mine too

And by the way: If you include any Zappa live album from the 60s & 70s, it should have been Roxy & Elsewhere instead of Fillmore.

(not that it would have made any difference)
