Live At The Hammersmith Odeon – 23.12.80 is a live recording that’s available with the 2010 enhanced version of their second studio album Absolutely.
It was recorded in London and broadcast by the BBC. Their are 21 live tracks on the UK version on the Union Square Music Limited but the US version on Amazon.com had lost a few of the live tracks. Careful needs to be taken when buying it to make sure that you get the version that offers the best value for money.
This is from the time when Madness were still a ska band although there were signs of their nutty pop sound coming through on hit singles like Baggy Trousers. If you like The Specials, The Beat, Bad Banners and The Selecter but you’re put off Madness by their irritating hits, you need to investigate this album.

Live 1976 – 1998 Tonight’s The Night is a compilation live album by Rod Stewart that extends over 4 CDs.
The first disc is all from 1976, the second moves from 1976 to 1981, the third from 1984 to 1989 and the final disc from 1991 to 1998.
This then captures his career as he turned from a rocker with the Faces to a massively successful pop star.
The critical view is that he had “it” in the early 1970s with albums like Every Picture Tells A Story but he was losing it by the time Sailing and Atlantic Crossing appeared in 1975 and it was gone completely by the time that he turned to disco with Do Ya Think I’m Sexy.
That view probably needs to be refined. He continued to produce high quality singles with the odd exception, even if he’d lost that special creativity that he had in his younger days.
