I think many of the Beatles songs that Paul McCartney performs live sound better than the Beatles studio recordings.
Kashmir from the Jimmy Page and Robert Plant No Quarter album...
Probably the whole Live Bullet album
One of my favorite albums. I still get down with Nutbush City Limits.
I'm a bit partial to Travelin' Man/ Beautiful Loser
Ding ding ding, we have a winner
Pretty much anything on the pink Floyd pulse album.
Is there anything that sounds best in-studio?
I think the whole Live at Leeds album sounds better than the studio versions.
We Will Rock you by Queen, perfect song for playing Live, sounds infinitely better with 10's of thousands of people in the audience joining in.
Parisienne Walkways is better live, especially when its just Gary Moore out there alone.
Also Ton Petty and the Heartbreakers doing American Girl, specifically live at the BBC, sounds far better than the studio version.
That's not saying much! Kit Lambert had no clue what he was doing in a recording studio.
Couldn't see the vid. BUT, I was also gonna mention SuperTramp. Never heard a live album, but when I saw them live in early '79, it was as good of show and the best live sound I've ever heard. Fantastic band live.
Live at Leeds sets the bar for all other live albums IMO. The jam on Magic Bus is amazing...you can hear Pete invent a riff, then the band picks it up and off they go. The energy on the album is amazing. The full length version that came out on CD many year later is amazing with the full performance of Tommy!!
I have to pull that out for another listen soon...been too long.
I think, barring use of studio only special effects, most bands live are better. 'Live At Leeds'...Allman Bros.,and Humble Pie Fillmore albums. The above mentioned 'Ya Ya's'...Frampton...Deep Purple...'The Last Waltz'...etc. Oh, nearly forgot...'Full House' by J. Geils Band. Also saw them live in Portland, OR in 1973(?) Blew my face off baby.
Rush usually sticks to the script when they play live. La Villa Strangiato off of "Exit...Stage Left" was always something special to me...there's that certain something. Watch Alex play it in this video and you'll be amazed at how inefficient his technique is...fingers flailing all over the place. He had smashed his finger with a hammer also...you can see his one finger nail is black. Yet, he still plays it amazingly!!!
Oh, the talk about his finger at the start of the video.
The whole band is on...but damn if Alex doesn't bring the fire. One of my favorite live Rush videos.
