Favorite Live Recordings

In general, I despise live recordings. I just don't like how they sound. Here are some albums that I'll admit are exceptions:

Bill Evans, "Waltz for Debby"
Donny Hathaway, "Live"
Jimi Hendrix, "Band of Gypsies"
Curtis Mayfield, "Curtis/Live!"
Townes Van Zandt, "Live at the Old Quarter"

And a couple of runners-up (only because I've only listened to them a few times each):

Sam Cooke, "Live at the Harlem Square Club"
Bill Withers, "Live at Carnegie Hall"
