Always in for a good live album of musically challenging self-indulgism.

I'll start with Yessongs. And although I don't care as much for Yesshows, The Gates of Delirium live is out of this world.

What live-Prog rocks your boat?

Aren't Ash blues-rock (and excellent they were too) rather than prog?

Well Brasso I did think about this when I posted. WA are or were a lot of things. A few of the the tracks are straight blues-rock but 7 minute sojourns into stuff about Kings coming and throwing swords about (in 1973 remember) progs it for me I reckon.

Any Rush live album for me but Rush - All The World's A Stage will always be my favourite as I saw them the following year In Sheffield (on their first ever date outside N America). Different Stages is excellent too, especially the 3rd disc which is a '78 gig from the Hammy Odeon - £8.25 s/h is a bargain for this triple.

WA are definitely on the proggy side of jazz/blues/rock. As a matter of interest, when did The Ramones and The Skids (great live CD that by the way) join the prog rock movement?

edit - I see The Ramones have just been deleted

Genesis Live (Nursery Cryme tour) is a goody

'Colosseum Live' has always been a favourite of mine, but of course the grand master is:

The Great Deceiver a monster of a box set!

Brass Neck says:
Is the content the same as this rather cheaper pair?
Great Deceiver - Live '73-'74: Part 1 (2 Cd)
Great Deceiver - Live '73-'74: Part 2 (2 Cd)

No no no!!!!!! You don't get it do you Brass!!

The extravagant packaging, the informative booklet etc etc..and anyway I'd buy anything they put out even if it's been repackaged 100 time before! ;-)

Brass Neck says:
But is it the same MUSIC?

In reply to an earlier post on 24 May 2012 17:07:38 BDT
Without even looking, would i be correct in thinking the initials of the band responsible are KC

In reply to an earlier post on 24 May 2012 17:16:34 BDT
You would be right there Mr A.!!

Brass - but it's in a fantastic box!!!

T. Franklin says:
Quite right Schiz. I bought the (deleted) box even though it cost more BECAUSE it was in a box ;-)

Anyroad
Seconds Out - Genesis (the first album I bought by them)

do Rush count as prog?
All the World's a Stage the music is grate on Exit... Stage Left, etc as well, but they are spoiled for me due to fade outs between tracks. Whyyyyyyy!!!!!!

Porcupine Tree - Spiral Circus is a classic

Don't really consider them prog myself but as we appear to be using the term in the broader sense then I'll offer Caravan - Live @ Fairfield Halls,1974.

Mark - I'd have thought you'd have gone for BBC Radio 1 in Concert, as I'm sure I could argue that they have 'proggish' tendencies (although there's no Slark) on here. Back in the day at their peak I've seen them make Slark last almost 30 minutes.
