Love You Live was the third live album released by the Rolling Stones and brings together live recordings from 1975 to 1977.
This catches the early years of Ronnie Wood as the replacement for Mick Taylor on the tours to promote the Black and Blue studio album.

While it is a two CD set, don’t be fooled into thinking that you’re getting more music than you are. It is 83 minutes long.
I wouldn’t have envied Ronnie Wood the job of following Mick Taylor into a band that had recorded three of the greatest studio albums ever – Let It Bleed, Sticky Fingers and Exile On Main Street – but who by 1977 looked in decline and with punk rock emerging, irrelevant.
With hindsight we know the Rolling Stones have shown remarkable longevity and are still an extremely popular live act… even at ticket prices that make your eyes water.
