Greatest Live Album of 1978

The last three polls ('74 - '76) have only produced one LP for each year which has made double digits in the estimation of BCB. Methinks 1978 will change that... Choose up to five.

AC/DC, Lizzy, BOC, Little Feat and Zappa. A much better year than 1977.

I guess I just don't like live albums that much. Even the legendary Cheap Trick one doesn't do that much for me.

Take No Prisoners is one of my favorite live albums ever, of course. But only part of the reason for that is the music.

I also voted for Marley and the Last Waltz.

Cheap Trick, Tubes, Little Feat, Slade, Acker Dacker.

The Aerosmith one is pretty disappointing, I think.
Where would rock 'n' roll be without feedback?

Mostly based on personal preference.

Cheap Trick
AC/DC
Thin Lizzy
BOC
Bowie

Little Feat, Scorpions and Nugent were next on list. The Outlaws live album was disappointing. I was a fairly big fan and expected something more like Skynrd's One More From the Road. Babylon by Bus was too sprawling compared to the Wailers earlier, way more taut live album.

The Parker choice is surprising.

;)

Had to think about not including that one.
