Ellis Auditorium Memphis April 30th 1974 is a live recording by Steely Dan.
Like Going Mobile, the Pretzel Logic tour concert was recorded for a radio broadcast. It has been issued by the Keyhole label. This is an unofficial recording which I understand scrapes through the European Union copyright laws but wouldn’t be legal in the United States.

The Status Quo Live boxset collects together three live concert recordings by Status Quo:
- The 1976 Glasgow concert that features in the Status Quo Live double album.
- The 1976 Live In Japan aka Tokyo Quo album from the Sunplaza Hall which was originally only released in Japan.
- Live In Sydney 1974 recorded at Hordern Pavilion
Since fans will already have the Status Quo Live album with the Glasgow concert, the boxset is expensive for what it offers. There is a cheaper option for the mp3 version which gives you a chance to get either or both of the Tokyo and Sydney recordings.

In 2014 the recording of Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young’s 1974 tour was released as a live album called CSNY 1974.
It has a different character to their first live album, 4 Way Street from 1970 (released 1971).
The full version of CSNY 1974 is spread over three CDs with 40 songs and a DVD of highlights from their Landover and London concerts.
There is also a shorter 16 song single CD and the 40 song album can be bought separately as a download.

Viva is the first live album by glam / art rock group Roxy Music. It has been pulled together from three concerts at the Glasgow Apollo in November 1973, Newcastle City Hall in November 1974 and the Wembley Arena in London in October 1975.
This is Roxy Music after Brian Eno left. All three concerts feature his replacement Eddie Jobson.
I’m very conflicted about this live album and I’ve been putting off writing a review in the hope that we might get a remastered, extended version that takes away all my criticisms.
But I’ve been waiting for years to get a better version of Viva and I don’t even hear any rumours.

Live at Ebbets Field 1974 is the first live album by guitar great Tommy Bolin.
He’s probably most famous to rock fans for replacing Ritchie Blackmore in Deep Purple in 1975 and recording Come Taste The Band and the live albums This Time Around and On The Wings Of A Russian Foxbat.
Before then he replaced Joe Walsh in The James Gang and this live album catches Tommy Bolin while he was thinking about leaving that group in June 1974 but before he joined Deep Purple.

When I was putting together my poll to let readers like you vote to decide what is the best Pink Floyd live album, I came up with the idea of creating Pink Floyd Live At Wembley 1974.
You can get a recording of Shine On You Crazy Diamond, Raving and Drooling and You’ve Gotta Be Crazy from Wembley, London on the Experience and Immersion versions of Wish You Were Here.
All the tracks on Dark Side Of the Moon are available live from the same concert are available from the Experience remaster of the DSOTM album.
Shame they haven’t been bundled together to create one live album from the classic Floyd period but you have the technology to do it for yourself. Continue reading Pink Floyd Live At Wembley 1974
