    The official Live appreciation thread

    I could've put this in a PM to kidhuman, but perhaps my posting it as a thread will convince mabudon to check out some Live music.

    My copy of Awake: The Best of Live came in the mail yesterday. This may be the best GH album ever. Not necessarily in the quality of the music, but in the completeness and value. No hit is missing, and two rarities (including their awesome cover of Johnny Cash's "I Walk the Line") and an unreleased track from the Throwing Copper sessions are thrown on to fill the CD to capacity.

    And the DVD that's included includes every video I'm aware of and several I wasn't.

    I've been pondering making a Live mix CD for a while but never did so. I couldn't have made a better one myself. I highly recommend this to everyone.

    Entertainment Weekly said about this compilation that the songs were even more unlistenable than when they first came out. This is further proof that the staff of EW are morons who have no taste and love jumping on bandwagons, and humanity would be better off if they were drug out into the street and administered severe public beatings.

    I fel you can not contain Lives greatest hits to one CD. Every damn album has been worthy of a greatest hits. I think all in all, there is one song off of their albums I dislike. (Stage, for all those that care)

    I need to go out and get this CD. And if you dont appreciate Live right now, listen to a few albums, but make sure you start at the beginning....

    Mental Jewelry
    Four SOngs( just 4 songs on this one, 2 from Mentla Jewelry and two new ones)
    Throwing Copper
    Secret Samadhi
    The Distance to Here
    V
    Birds of Prey


    and of course their greatest hits now.


    Run out buy this and listen with your mouth agape at how wonderful they are.

    Actually, I'm 99.99% sure Four Songs preceded Mental Jewelry by a year or two.

    I'd also say everyone should get "Good Rockin Tonight: The Legacy of Sun Records" for an indispensible Live track ("I Walk the Line"), but they were kind enough to put it on the GH album. Of course, it also has Tom Petty, Eric Clapton, Bob Dylan, Sheryl Crow, Elton John, Paul McCartney, Carl Perkins, Chris Isaak, and more on one disc, so it's worth having anyway.

    You hear that, Carl?

    Re: The official Live appreciation thread

    Weird that you make a Live appreciation thread as today when i got home, i had a hankerin' to here some "Secret Samahdi" and i blared it for a good hour or so. In my opinion, that is their most underrated album, ever. I loved all the different directions it seemed to go musically and lyrically. I must admit though: i haven't kept up with their releases since SS as I just lost touch and went into a lot of different areas with my music. Maybe over X-mas, i'll downlo- i mean, BUY the rest of their discs.

    I was also lucky enough to see them back in 2000 with the Counting Crows and it was an excellent show by both bands. Adam Duritz came out and sang some of "Dolphins Cry" with the band and Ed came out and sang "Hangin' Around" with the rest of Live, Counting Crows and the other opening act whose name eludes me. He can get the ladies goin' crazy with his wacky dance moves. I think he said he attributed his wacky dancing skills to be born in PA.
    cheers!

    P.S.- I love how we got all the "Members" of U2 posted in this thread. If only we can get somebody to get a Larry avatar!

    Re: The official Live appreciation thread

    i have to say live are one of my favourite bands and very underated - never made a bad album. in fact never written a duff song. i was lucky enough to see them when they toured both throwing copper and secret samahdi and they are a great live band too. unfortunately i missed them touring the distance to here and i don't think they haven't been to england since (apart from supporting bon jovi at some huge outdoor gigs, which are not my thing).

    I thought this was a thread to appreciate live music from everyone. Oh well.

    I haven't gotten it yet, but I'm looking forward to seeing and hearing the DVD from Clapton's concert this summer. Wish I coulda been there...

    ah, yes. back in the mists of time, when i actually used to go into record shops to buy music that always caused no end of confusion with the dimwitted record store workers. I actually remember finding throwing copper in the 'T' section and the staff thought it was a live album by a band called throwing copper. still i shouldn't complain because i did get it cheap because they had never heard of it !

    You got that right. I had no idea some of these videos existed. I am sure they might be some more out there as well.


    I finally got this CD/DVD off of lay-a-way yesterday. This is the resaon I started the damn remote lost thread. Sweetrain or myself could not view the intrerview wiht Ed K., but now it is possible with the purchase of a Universal remote. The videos are amazing. I havent gotten around to listen to the CD yet, but will soon.

    Ed K. is a bit out there and the interview helped explain alot of the songs/albums. I was right on a few of them , but off on a few others.

    I would say my favorite video is Dolphins Cry. I love the part when he stomps and the floods come. Awesome Awesome. I am glad this CD/DVD has graced my collection.

    Live is a great band, and I just received this AWAKE cd in the mail. It is an awesome cd. Are all copies of Awake supposed to come with a DVD? The one I ordered from half.com did not come but with one disc.

    One way to out think people is to make them think you think they'll think what you are not really trying to get them to think what you think.

    No, it was a special, they have both. Head to Wal-Mart or Target to get the DVD bonus one.
