I’ve been sharing videos by Pete Pardo from the Sea of Tranquility website. Here is what he has to say about The Rolling Stones.
Get Yer Ya-Ya’s Out is often considered to be one of the very best blues rock live albums. Even better as far as I’m concerned is The Brussels Affair. The Stones really should have released this majestic slice of Mick Taylor inspired rock back in the early 1970s.
Here are Pete’s videos.

This is it at the moment. I’m hoping he’s going to do more Stones based videos. For other well known bands he’s done histories and/or best to worst albums.
What Are The Best Live Albums?
First let’s focus on finding the best live albums by the band themselves.
I think of The Stones as mainly a blues rock band but have they recorded one of the best blues rock live albums?
Some of the albums, like The Brussels Affair really rock so they are also included in the polls to find the best heavy metal and hard rock live albums.
