you forgot Frampton Comes Alive! ;)

among my personal favourites are Paul Gilbert - Acoustic Samurai and Dead Kennedys - Live at the Deaf Club
and I've got some live stuff by the Doors, I much prefer it to their studio albums. And a whole bunch of Phish concerts...

but the best ever is The Who - Live at Leeds
