I searched for ages when I younger for TMTATS, and only recently have I found it in the stores haha. It was out of print for a while iirc right? Or something like that.

Brand New's 'Southside Festival' Bootleg/Soundboard is awesome too. Great sound quality.

Live albums are good in some ways; giving you a chance to experience the show, but at the same time you still feel a bit removed from the atmosphere, which is a given really, seeing as you aren't there. They are a good substitute for not going to a show, although it can be bittersweet, listening to a great show and acknowledging that, but at the same time you wished you could/should of went.

It's a tricky one, I'd say it's usually never as good as actually being there; atmosphere makes a huge difference... it might be enjoyable to listen to but when you're listening you can't help but feel you're settling for second best.

Oh my lord, I NEED that Ursus Veritas set as a whole. I have like half of those on my pod now.

Yeah, Live at the House of Blues is insanely good.
It rules. I think "bsides r us" had it at one point. I did a quick google search for it - but couldn't find it.

I don't really like live albums, unless I happened to be at the show it was recorded, like the Starting Line's final show in Philadelphia on April 18, 2008. I like being able to connect a memory to what I'm hearing, and if I can't do that, it just loses its luster.

Live albums are never an essential listen for me. If it's somebody I really like, then I'll buy them, but 99% of the time I prefer the studio versions of the songs. That said, here are some of my favourite live albums;

The Who - Live At Leeds
MC5 - Back In The USA
James Brow - Live At the Apollo, 1962
Sam Cooke - Live At the Harlem Square Club
Bob Dylan - I like a lot of the many Bootleg Series that he's put out, I'll go for number 4 as my favourite overall
Bruce Springsteen - Live 1975 - 85

And more recent ones:
Green Day - Bullet In A Bible
Thrice - Live At The House Of Blues
Tegan and Sara - Get Along
NOFX - I Heard They Suck Live / They've Gotten Even Worse Live!
Bad Religion - 30 Years Live
The Bob Dylan bootlegs could be ranked completely separately. Heh.

You know, I don't think I ever heard that Green Day one. Weird. I remember it coming out - and I just ignored it I guess.

TBS's Live at Orensanz is the only live album I own. It's pretty solid. In general though, I'm not really a big fan of live albums.
TBS have a live album?

I did not know this.

Face to Face's Live Album is one of the best live albums ever. Every track is so solid.

Love em. Sometimes the live versions are better than the original.
Found that in a few places as well. It's always a weird thing for me ... it's that, "Why didn't the album version sound like this" moment.

City and Colour's live album is far better than Sometimes in my opinion.

I didn't know this either.

Feel like TBS is something better experienced live - than listened to live. Is it any good?
