The big 70's prog bands were almost required to release at least one live album to show the world that they really could duplicate their complex studio creations in front of a live audience.  This is your chance to let us know what you think of their finest efforts.  Here are the top 25 PA ranked live albums from the 70's (listed in order of their ranking, high to low).  Each album was required to have a minimum of 100 ratings to qualify.  

Vote for your favourite PA ranked 70's live album.  Also, be sure to tell us if any of these albums were recorded on tours that you actually attended!
I'm using the chicken to measure it.

ELP - Welcome Back My Friends

they play all of Brain Salad Surgery live except Benny The Bouncer
You get an extended Tarkus with some amazing synths and drumming that was never bettered imo
and then there's the acoustic section book ended by Take A Pebble demonstrating some great jazz skills by Emerson on the piano

Its my first pick Desert Island disc as well as my favourite live album

I'm not generally wild about live albums, but this is still a pretty stunningly good list.   My vote goes to Magma - it was my introduction to them and remains the benchmark of excellence for them.

Lots of great selections here, but Seconds Out stands as my favorite.

Playing the Fool, Live at Carnegie Hall and Seconds out are all amazing, but A Live Record is simply the best live album ever made.

Hah, I was going to mention that one. Seems to be somewhat under the radar here. I really hope people will pick it up at some point though. I would've voted for it in a heartbeat, hands down. 
In the absence of SBB I'm voting for Margarine Fiend's Ricochet. I listened to it here the other night, and it is such a trip!
Could've gone for Solar Music Live too.
