List Rules Pick the live classic rock album you think is the best

Since the 1960s, rock live albums have been a part of the musical landscape. Capturing a band generally at or near their collective peak, the live album has served a souvenir for both people who attended a given show, or for those loyal fans who enjoy hearing different versions of a studio hit. Live albums can capture a single show, or in some cases, can be a compilation of the best versions of a particular song across a given tour.

So, what are the best live classic rock albums of all time? Many of the biggest classic rock bands of all time have issued like albums, so the list can be plentiful. Many people point to Live at Leeds and Frampton Comes Alive! as two records that set the high standard from which live album needs to model themselves. 

It's up to you to vote for the greatest live rock album of all time, so vote wisely!
