You Can’t Do That On Stage Anymore Vol 3 is a collection of live recordings by Frank Zappa.
Unlike vol2 which was based on gigs at a single venue (Helsinki in 1974), this goes back to the format of vol 1 and collects together tracks from 1971 through to 1984.
While this loses the feel of one concert and opens up the issue of different members in the supporting band, it means that you get some of Zappa’s favourite versions of the songs. Of course, some fans disagree as the early 1980s weren’t his strongest period.
Steve Miller Band Live! is a live album by the Steve Miller Band.

Whilst I wasn’t a big fan at the time, hearing these songs takes me back to my days as a teenager and as a university student. It has a strong emotional appeal.
