Live At Woburn is a live album by the Jimi Hendrix Experience.
It was recorded from the performance at the Woburn Music Festival on July 6, 1968.
Cheap Thrills is an album by Big Brother and the Holding Company.
This is a controversial album since much of it was recorded in the studio with crowd noise mixed in to give the impression that it’s a live album. The only completely live in concert recording is that of Ball & Chain. The expended version available on CD has two more live songs, Catch Me Daddy and Magic of Love.
It is, however, a convincing impression since it captures a raw, live-in-concert style energy.
