Live album

Back | Home | Up | Next


A live album is a musical recording containing recorded concert performances. Live albums have existed since the early 1960s when the album began to be seen as an artistic entity unto itself and not simply a collection of songs.

Most successful recording artists release at least one live album at some point during their career. Most live albums are seen as expendable parts of an artists’ catalogue, often failing to sell as well as studio albums. However, a few artists are known for live albums that are considered better than their studio albums, including KISS, James Brown, Allman Brothers Band, and The Grateful Dead.
