Lou Reed - Rock 'n' Roll Animal, simply the late Dick Wagner and Steve Hunter at their best. The intel is sublime.

The latest Sound Liaison download ''Impromptu'' is incredible.
Proves that less is more 4 microphones and 2 musicians that really can play add a participating audience, and you have the formula for a great live album.
in DSD , PCM and Flac; http://www.soundliaison.com/
Those hi res downloads are all on sale this week 33% off.

Get the latest just released DXD/DSD recording, ''This Bird has Flown'' RubberSoul revisited. The SQ is incredible.

I am not a big lover of Hip Hop but this group from South Africa is the whole package. No sampling just a great band that can jam. A very good live recording.

Deep Purple--Live in Japan.  Awesome sounding double album.  You can't sit still listening to Highway Star.  Some parts of the album are just beautifully clear and dynamic.   Most of their best stuff is on this album with fantastic renditions.

One of the albums that got me started as a serious music listener!
I am more of a jazz fan nowadays but I still like it.

Can't believe this thread made it to 5 pages without this one being nominated  :scratch:




Another excellent one for its time (early 60s)

I have this album in SACD, very good organic sound from a analog tape recorded live, the music also is great.

PS FRM: There's a different release called 'The Fillmore Concerts' in which the two lead guitars are mixed a little less 'hot', probably a more accurate representation of how it sounded at the concert but takes some getting used to when you've been listening to the album for 40+ years. It has material from both nights. 'Elizabeth Reed' on that release is a splice job between two performances to combine the 'best' parts, a practice that I have misgivings about.

Back in my vinyl-spinning days, I had the Nautilus half-speed-mastered version of Fillmore East, which sounded very good.

Two personal notes: I had a friend who was at these shows and was always jealous of that. I also had a chance to see the Allmans on 10/17/71 in what was as far as I know the last show featuring the original lineup, a double bill with B.B. King at Painter's Mill in Owings Mills, MD. They jammed together :o  And where was I? I had free tickets to John Denver, which was good (it was before he went commercial, just a three piece acoustic group), but if I had a time machine I'd go back and hear the Allmans. (Frank Zappa was at the Lyric Theatre and the last game of the World Series that day too- busy day in Baltimore.)

The new DXD recording from Sound Liaison; Carmen Gomes Sings the Blues, is easily one off the best sounding live albums I have ever heard.
Nagra used the album at the High End audio show in Munich to show off their new equipment.

For anybody interested there is only a few days left of the 33% off introduction offer .

Built To Spill - Live

I've always loved the separation between the guitars. The cover of Cortez the Killer goes on for 20 mins, but I think it's, ummm, killer :-)

Enjoying Muddy "Mississippi"Waters live
you are there feel to the. L.p.
Full House live the J Geils band intensive live recording.
Burnside on Burnside you can feel the sawdust and smell the beer. Down right hypnotic, hard to believe its just two guitars, voice and drums.
