A couple months ago I posted a status on Twitter/Facebook stating that I loved live albums and asking people for their favorites. I got a great response. Lots of classics. So I decided to follow that up with a list of my favorites in no particular order…
James Taylor – Live – Great musicianship and, of course, songs. No overdubs!
Coldplay – LeftRightLeftRightLeft – The enthusiasm of the crowd is amazing.
Bruce Springsteen and the E Street Band – Live in New York City – The energy of this band is unparalleled.
Simon and Garfunkel – The Concert in Central Park (1981) – Great harmonies and great fun.
David Wilcox – East Asheville Hardware – Funny, poignant, real.
Darrell Scott – Live in NC – Mix country, bluegrass, southern rock, jam band, and a voice like no other.
John Mayer – Where the Light Is – Comprehensive. The acoustic set is my favorite by far.
Darrell Evans – Let the River Flow – Taught me so much about worship.
Hillsong – Shout to the Lord – Classic. Nothing else to say.
U2 – Rattle and Hum – Not a complete live album but the closest I had in the 8th grade. I loved the passion on this…I wanted to sing like Bono so bad (Part of me still does:)!
How about you?…
