Not sure about Leonard Cohen's Live In London album. I have it, but for some reason haven't listened to it. However, there is a fantastic live version of Hallelujah on the album "Cohen Live". It's a compilation of different live performances, and the version of Hallelujah was recorded at Austin City Limits in 1988. It beats the pants off the studio version.

Another vote for the Allman Brothers Live at Fillmore East.

Easily the most-played album in my collection. And the most played CD. and tops on the playlist on my iPod/iPhone.

BB King, "Live in Cook County Jail." The live side of his "Live & Well" album was also great.

It's not live, so I really shouldn't be posting it here, but you haven't truly lived unless you've played Jimi Hendrix's "Ezy Ryder" at a volume setting of 11. (It's on the posthumously compiled album "Voodoo Soup".)

For Little Feat lovers, not an album, but a live concert, I was there a DC radio station broadcasted the show live. My friend recorded but ran out of tape before Feat was finished. Any how they closed with Willin, so to finish

I think I've mentioned this one before, but it's not really well known so what the heck:
Stand In The Fire by the late Warren Zevon

Gotta add Neil Young's 'Greendale'
There are multiple distributions: CD(studio), DVD(of a live performance), and movie. All are unique.

Tossup between Clapton Unplugged and The Weavers At Carnegie Hall - Live.

We lost Pete Seeger yesterday. I didn't align with his political stance, but he was a great entertainer.

The Last Waltz by The Band has already been mentioned but I have always thought of it as a video. today I was browsing through the on sale CDs in a local pawn shop and found the CD for $2.00. It is absolutely the best live album I have ever heard. The recording and performances are superb.
