Live At Winterland Valentine’s Day 1976 is a live recording of a concert given by Little Feat in February 1976.
It is listed by Wikipedia as a live album and it’s been sold on eBay but I don’t think it’s an official live album. It may be one of these “legal in some parts of the world” recordings.
There isn’t a shortage of live albums by Little Feat but apart from Waiting For Columbus, there is a serious lack of alternatives featuring main man, Lowell George which makes this special.

It is a live recording that is available from Wolfgang’s Vault and on the basis that’s been around for a long time and hasn’t been shut down, I assume that is legal.

Raunch ‘n’ Roll Live is a live album by Southern rock group Black Oak Arkansas.
It pulled songs from two concerts recorded at the Paramount Theatre, Portland on December 1st 1972 and at the Paramount Theatre in Seattle on the following day.
A bit like Uriah Heep, Black Oak Arkansas have been a band that music critics have loved to hate but ans think differently.

Stompin’ Room Only catches The Marshall Tucker Band in concert in 1977 when the live album was originally intended to be released. The launch was delayed and then the tapes were lost.
Since 2003 we have this piece of live Southern rock to enjoy.
One reviewer on Amazon argued that this wasn’t all previously unreleased material. Evidently Ramblin’ and 24 Hours At A Time have previously appeared on the album Where We All Belong and The Thrill is Gone appeared on one of the Volunteer Jam albums.
I’m not an expert in The Marshall Tucker Band so I can’t confirm or refute what has been said. It doesn’t matter to me and I don’t think it will do to most people who consider buying this live album. I’m just looking to hear what The Marshall Tucker Band were like in 1976.

Live is a recording of southern soul and blues group The Cate Brothers in concert.
According to AllMusic.com, it was recorded on the 23rd and 24th of October 1998. It was released in August 1999.
I saw the Cate Brothers perform In One Eye & Out The Other on the Old Grey Whistle Test on BBC2 in about 1976 and I was hooked by their sound.
I don’t understand why they aren’t much better known and much more popular.

The answer may be obviously but I want to find out what you think is the best Southern rock live album.
What Is The Best Southern Rock Live Album?
I suspect that the Allman Brothers and Lynyrd Skynyrd albums are going to dominate this poll because they tend to be the first groups that most people think about.
Hopefuly your votes will help reveal some less well known classic live albums beyond The Allman Brothers At Fillmore East and Skynyrd’s One More From The Road.
While it is easy to stereotype southern rock as guitar heavy boogie rock, it’s an area of music that turns out to be more varied than you’d expect as it brings in the funk of Little Feat and the country influence of other groups.

Waiting For Columbus is the first live album released by Little Feat and is considered to be one of the best live albums ever. Plenty more have followed.
It was recorded at the Rainbow Theatre in London and Lisner Auditorium in Washington DC in early August 1977 on the Time Loves A Hero tour.
Before punk came along, Little Feat were a critics favourite with their unique brand of fusion rock pulling on the blues, country, boogie and funk. Personally I didn’t see what was so special as the studio albums lacked impact.
My problem was I hadn’t seen or heard them play live. This is a great album for someone who thinks they don’t like Little Feat to hear.

Live In Germany is a live album by Southern boogie rock group ZZ Top and was recorded at the Grugahalle in Essen, Germany for the Rockpalast TV series. It was from their 1980 tour to promote the Deguello album.
This is ZZ Top before they changed their sound for MTV success with songs like Sharp Dressed Man. You have been warned.

One More From The Road is the first live album from the original Lynyrd Skynyrd band and was recorded in 1976.
This is both a thrilling and very sad live album.
It was recorded in July 1976, fifteen months before the plane crash that killed lead singer/songwriter Ronnie Van Zant, as well as guitar player Steve Gaines and his sister, backing singer Cassie Gaines.
You can’t help listening to this classic driving rock and wondering what Lynyrd Skynyrd led by Ronnie Van Zant would have produced in the future.
