My Favorite Live Albums

We got a live one here. I was recently thinking about live albums that I've really enjoyed over time, and I figured that in and of itself is plenty of inspiration to write a blog post listing my own personal favorite live albums. While they aren't necessarily as enjoyable, in my opinion, as a finely polished studio masterpiece, they do serve the purpose of capturing a band in front of a live crowd in all their glory. So here are a few live albums that I feel really capture great bands at great moments in their history. In no particular order...

1. Ozzy Osbourne - Live & Loud. I got this album when I was in the eighth grade. It's actually one of my prized possessions in my collection too. It's in pretty ratty shape at this point, but it's still complete with the washable tattoos, booklet, and steel grate cover. As for the music, Zakk Wylde makes the band sound insanely heavy, and it's the best Ozzy has ever sounded.
2. Kiss - Alive III. People always say Alive or Alive II is the best Kiss live album. They're probably right, but I've always dug this one just because of the tunes they included in the show. I'm also a bigger fan of Bruce Kulick than Ace Frehley. There, I said it.
3. Iced Earth - Alive in Athens. The Greek crowd on this album is on fire. Iced Earth also kill it with Matt Barlow fronting the band too.
