I was just trying to finish off my Great White CD collection when I noticed something fairly obvious..... they had a helluva lot of LIVE discs.

 

So my question is.....

 

What band out there has had the most LIVE releases??

 

If I counted right, Great White has 8 LIVE releases:

 

1. Recovery: Live!

2. Live At The Ritz

3. Live At The Marquee

4. Live In London

5. Live In New York

6. Anaheim Live

7. Stage

8. Thank You... Goodnight

I dunno, with bands these days releasing live gigs for nearly every concert on certain tours like Pearl Jam who must have countles live releases.

Also Kiss had that box didn't they? Which contained a disc from every gig on one leg some tour (Sonic Boom?)...or are we just counting ones generally available.

 

I guess U.F.O have quite a few live ones that have popped out over the years.

 

Live (1972 pre Schenker days!)

Strangers in the Night

Headstone (the live portion was released some years after the compilation as a stand alone live release)

BBC Radio 1 Live in Concert

Lights Out in Tokyo

Live in Texas (also known as Parkers Birthday)

Heavens Gate (Which was a re-release of Misdemeanor Live promo)

On With the Action

In Session and Live in Concert

Werewolves of London

Regenerator

Big Apple Encounters

Live on Earth (3 gigs on 4 CD's...)

Showtime

The Official Bootleg Box set (I ain't got this yet but I think some of the discs above are part of it)

Let it Roll 4 CD box set - (again not got this but I think it includes the Live in Texas disc, and maybe others)

Live Throughout the Years (Box set of some of the discs above Regenerator e.t.c....no new stuff)

Impact Live (another box set of previously released stuff..)

 

Problem is these later boxes I think are almost all repackaged stuff .. especially Live Throughout the Years and Impact Live, Let it Roll I'm not sure about apart from the Texas disc.

 

Either way it's a few live discs!

With the amount of cheap unauthorised releases that are now available, you have to give it to bands like Motorhead etc, as there seems to be a new live album released every couple of weeks.

:lol: True. Motorhead has been signed to seemingly every record label in the universe at one time or another, and usually as soon as they leave one company and sign to another, the "former" label either releases a live disc or a "Best-Of" compilation of their stuff.

    • New song 'Fans Of The Dark'.    
    • Shadows of Yesterday - Vinnie Moore
    • Sorry, that wasn't really what I meant. What I was really going for is that the songs on other albums seem to me to have more of a similar feel to them, like you can tell the songs for Freedom Rock were pretty much all written at the same time. I'm not saying that the songs on Force Majeure don't sound like H.E.A.T (even though I maintain it's not as good, based on the first few spins, as their previous efforts), but that they sound, to me, more "scatterbrained" than the selections from other records. That's not an easy thing to explain, but "direction" was the best word I could think of.    Again, I probably could explained my point better. I wasn't advocating for more guitars so much, but for more variety in the guitars we get. One of the best things for me about the first two H.E.A.T albums (less so for Address the Nation, but still there) was the subtle trade-offs between Dalone and Rivers and the solos that switched between them (good examples of this include the guitar work on "Late Night Lady," "Danger Road" and "Tonight," off the top of my head). Simply because Dalone and Rivers played different set ups and had some variance in tone, you could tell the difference between their playing (though admittedly there were times where Eric Rivers was completely underutilized and overshadowed). Because of the the combination of this record's production and the guitars being all Dave, you don't have as much of that, and that's what I was trying to convey.
    • Agree it reminds of earlier material, but I'm much less of a "Hang Tough" guy and much more of a "What A Shame" kind of guy.
    • Skid Row Nelson Steel Panther Harem Scarem WASP Van Hagar Saliva Joey Tempest Michael Sweet White Lion Mr. Big ... are the easy ones for me. Possibly Warrant as well come to think of it. Some other popular ones listed taht I don't agree with would be Slaughter - 2nd album pipped it GNR - always preferred either UYI albums Tuff - really only had 1 1/2 albums so don't count    
    • and the lyrics tick tock time to rock don't make you cringe?? if it was 1986 and I was 16 it might have been just passable but now, no. 
    • Another release that seems to have been completely overlooked here on HH... check out those vids for "Give It Up" and "Love Will Not Let You Down". I swear both tunes sound like something you'd hear from AdrianGale!  Compassion | Akiba Music (bandcamp.com)  
    • I might stone thrown at me, but hear some Scorpions.
    • "One Voice", which is a demo, is the only one I hear the tape "hiss" on...
    • Is that cassette tape hiss I hear at the start of the song? Is the whole album like that or only the demo tracks?
