There were a lot of good selections – but these are the ones cited most often:
Live at Fillmore East by the Allman Brothers Band.
Frampton Comes Alive (editor’s note: if you liked the original, try Frampton Comes Alive II or Live in Detroit!)
Bob Seger and the Silver Bullet Band: Live Bullet
The Concert in Central Park – Simon & Garfunkel
The Who “Live At Leeds” (Deluxe Edition)
Neil Diamond/ a tie/ Hot August Night and Love at the Greek
Journey – Captured
But this week’s Bonus Survey Says Editor’s Choice goes to the reader who said “I have musical ADD. My music collection is approaching 60,000 songs (most obtained legally) and more than fill my three iPods. The answer to the questions is … no wait, its … now I’m listening to …”
Thanks to everyone who participated in our survey!
And here’s the rest of the reader list:
East Ashville Hardware (David Wilcox)
Gosh, I've heard only a few, and I like The Eagles (presumably “Hell Freezes Over”, though it could also be “Eagles Live”).

"Mad Dogs and Englishmen" -- Joe Cocker
Yessongs (by Yes)
Jimi Hendrix - Band of Gypsies
Deja Vu...Crosby, Stills, Nash and Young

No favorite "live" album. I guess the song I always liked "live" was Folsom Prison Blues, by Johnny Cash.
Elton John (there are four, but live in Australia tends to be played most)
The Kingston Trio at the Hungry i
Pink Floyd Delicate Sound of Thunder
Courage & Patience & Grit, By Great Big Sea
Here at last...Bee Gees...Live. 1977.

Kenny Chesney Live
That would be any live Grateful Dead Show...
The Last Waltz
Rolling Stones Get Your Ya Yas Out
Cheap Trick - Live at Budokan

A Bruce Springsteen bootleg live I have. Much better then the "live" albums they make.
That is easy... Styx Grand Illusion album... even my kids love the album (well now C/D)... trascends generations!!
The Dan Band
It's gotta be Rush -- from the days before they started making the Top 40 charts. Their live rendition of the "2112" anthem is fabulous! (At least it was when I was 13 and getting stoned to it!)
