And here's the final - the top 2 of all the semifinals. Are these prog's best 8 live albums? Obviously not everybody will agree (and Deep Purple sneaked in surprisingly as officially "Proto Prog"), but these are the top ones according to your votes, both very well known and appreciated.
Can Gentle Giant once more beat the biggies?
Can Deep Purple show all the proggies how a live album should be done?
Is it more a curse  than a blessing for Genesis to have two albums in the final, as their fans' votes will split up?
Will Yessongs win despite all the stick the sound quality got in the semifinal (which it won nevertheless)?
Can Bursting Out surprise me once more and even claim the top spot?
Are there enough Camel lovers out there to make their Live Record shine?
Can the orchestra boost Renaissance's outsider status?
You tell me.

Renaissance ends up being my pick just over Deep Purple. 

Perhaps a bit unfair because it's a box set but I would have liked to see how KC's The Great Deceiver would have fared in there. No better live album(s) imo.

Yessongs is the ultimate live album for me, Playing the Fool a good second.

Great albums, but can't see beyond 'Made in Japan' - Deep Purple off this list. Camel and Yes make up the podium.

For me it's a tie between "Bursting Out" and "Made in Japan".

I thought that one of SBB's live albums would make it (like Karlstad 1975, anyone?)... What is it with You people? Disapprove

I hadn't included SBB but when I asked for suggestions, it wasn't put forward. Neither was "The Great Deceiver". ELP's WBMFTTSTNE lost to Ummagumma, Pictures at an Exhibition and Seconds Out in the qualifiers.

Obviously a series of polls ultimately is a popularity contest and the result is determined by headcounts, channelled by the somewhat biased decisions made by the organiser, that's just how it is.
For featuring what we really treasure, a collection of top 10, top 50 or even top 100 lists of live albums would still be better.

when I did my albums contests Lew...  I left out the usual suspects. For two reasons.. one to obviously cut down on the bobblehead fanboy vote and highly predictable endings..... the 2nd of course.. the main one.....expose people to albums they might not be familiar with.  You might try it next time minus the usual suspects we knew those were popular before you ever started the contest.
