    Triggered by some comments on the Led Zep thread, here is an opportunity to list your favourite "live albums" - not including bootlegs or stealth concert recordings.

    Also Zappa, but I prefer him after the Mothers, so I'll go for "Any Way The Wind Blows".

    I also really like The Peatbog Faeries' live album.

    Well, Roxy & Elsewhere wasn't really a 'Mothers' era album.

    A terrific live Zappa album you might not yet have had the chance to try is "Bufallo" which is a complete show from October 25 1980, released April 1, 2007.

    Bongo Fury by Zappa (w/ Cpt. Beefheart) is a pretty decent album as well.

    Just out - for those who did not catch the leak - is Mogwai's first official live album Burning (they've allowed fans to plug midi-recorders in to the sound booth for a while, plenty on the Internet Archive, but this is the first official - and so properly mixed - live album). It's not as incendiary as their actual live shows, but it does seem to be a full career retrospective, insofar as tracks from all their studio albums appear, and it does give some sense of the live experience, which they have always admitted is really hard to reproduce in the studio. The cliche goes that an actual Mogwai gig may well require earplugs, depending on one's age and view to future hearing, but I can safely say it's a reputation actually deserved: my ears rang for a week the last time I saw them.

    One of my favourite bands of all time, and as reasonable an introduction as any, I suppose.
