Rolling Stone Readers Poll Of The 10 Best Live Albums

A few days ago (November 2012) Rolling Stone magazine and website asked readers to vote for the best live albums of all time. It doesn’t say how many people voted.

The results were fairly predictable and dominated by albums from the 1970s heyday with The Who classic from 1970 at #1

What Do You Think Is The Best Live Album?

Do you think the Rolling Stone readers have got it right or wrong? Please let me know by leaving a comment and telling me about the live albums you think should be included.

If selecting the best live albums overall is too difficult to think about, I’ve set up various polls to discover the consensus by group.

It would be really good if you could vote if any of these are amongst your favourite artists:

Best Live Album by Genesis

Best Live Album by Pink Floyd

Best Live Album by The Rolling Stones

Best Live Album by Bruce Springsteen

Best Live Album by The Who

Best Live Album by Neil Young

Best Live Album by Bob Dylan

Best Live Album by Deep Purple

Best Live Album by Van Morrison

Best Live Album by Eric Clapton

Best Live Album by David Bowie

I’ll be creating more of these polls when I’m able to spend more time on the Best Live Albums blog.
