What Are The Best Live Albums Of All Time?

Lou Reed has albums nominated in the polls for hard rock, classic rock, singer-songwriter, proto-punk and psychedelic genres either as a solo artist or as part of the Velvet Underground.

I’m treating the Velvet Underground as a psychedelic and proto-punk band.
