Alive In Japan is a live album by art rock / pop rock band 10cc.
The live albums issued under the 10cc brand name are very confusing and it appears that Ali9ve in Japan is an extended version of 10cc Live.
This is another album by the Graham Gouldman and Eric Stewart version of the band so the emphasis is on melodic pop but without the earlier inventiveness that the original foursome created..

What You Hear is What You Get (contentiously subtitled the Best of Bad Company live) is a live album by Bad Company recorded in 1992 in California. Brian Howe is the lead singer and not Paul Rodgers.
This album very much revives the debate about when a group stops being the group promised by its brand name. For me, Bad Company has to include Paul Rodgers.

Blues To The Bush is a live album by The Who that was recorded at the House of Blues in Chicago on 12 and 13 November 1999, and at the Empire Theatre, Shepherd’s Bush, London on 22 and 23 December 1999.
It’s one of my favourites although it’s hard to get because it was exclusively released through MusicMaker.com. I got my copy from eBay.

24 Nights is an Eric Clapton live album recorded during long stints at the Royal Albert Hall, London in 1990 and 1991. It includes five songs from the Journeyman album he was promoting at the time.
During these concerts Clapton was experimenting with different formats of backing band – 4-piece, blues, 9-piece and orchestra nights and all of these are captured on 24 Nights.
A well structured play list stops the album sounding like a messy mixture as each format is grouped together.

It raises some challenging views on what you want from a live album?
Pink Floyd Pulse – Overall Rating = 22/30
I think I’m going to upset a few people on this review although Pink Floyd are one of my favourite groups and I’ve owned nearly all their albums.
