Caravan - Live at Fairfield Halls
Jethro Tull - Bursting Out
King Crimson - For Absent Lovers
King Crimson - The Night Watch
Zappa and the Mothers - Roxy and Elsewhere
Zappa - In New York
Gentle Giant - Playing the Fool

NOTES:

- Back in the seventies, I loved YESSONGS and GENESIS LIVE to death. Now they don't move me anymore.

- Anyone out there who's into symphonic prog but not (yet) familiar with the Zappa and Caravan albums I've included, just give them a try, YOU WON'T REGRET IT!

I can't handle Phill doing the vocals on the PG-era material.
 
There are so many Crimso live albums out that I have no idea what the quality is of each of them.
 
So...i guess I don't have a fav Live Prog album.
 
Do you?
 
 
 
 
1. Colosseum live
2. Traffic - On the road
3. ELP - Welcome back, Pictures at an exhibition
4. Pink Floyd - Pompeii
5. Gentle giant - King biscuit flower hour, BBc, Playing the fool
6. King Crimson - Circus, Earthbond, USA
7. Yes- Yessongs
and many more...........................
