James Brown live at the Apollo?

I thought of that one, and assuming we are allowing solo artists it’s a good call. See also Sam Cooke and One Night Stand.

Not sure about this. It’s great obviously, but the first three Ramones studio albums are as close to perfection as you can get in my view.

I’ve always found the Lizzy studio albums really flat compared to Live and Dangerous, but maybe it’s because I heard the live album first. Perhaps it’s hard to dislodge the versions of songs that you first fall in love with. With The Ramones I heard the studio albums first.
