Not really prog, Crossover maybe? But impressive:



Checked studio version later - a major disappointment(

I mostly prefer studio versions over live versions.

But Camel - Captured from "Pressure Points - Live" is better than the studio version. Nice live sound, nice energy and all instruments are very clear. Great guitar.

I don't like the drum sound in the studio versions of Nude and Moonmadness, it sounds very isolated, probably recorded in a small studio room.

Drafted is nice too, but the singing isn't great.

I think I prefer the live version of Leipzig is Calling by Thomas Dolby (from The Sole Inhabitant). The original is just called Leipzig, and is also good.

This semi-New Wave version of David Bowie's "Life On Mars". I think it captures the feel of isolation better than the original.

The snow goose version in ''a live record'' is a truly masterpiece

Actually, that's the version of the album I have and the only one I know. I do enjoy it a lot, but I don't feel the need to go and get the original studio version, it sounds just fine the way it is on "a live record".

Roxy Music – Several tracks from “Viva!” blow their studio counterparts right out of the water. On second thought, make that all of them!

Kate Bush – The four tracks from her On Stage EP, especially James and the Cold Gun and Them Heavy People.

Steve Hillage – Some of the tracks on Live Herald, especially Light in the Sky with its uncredited Close Encounters tag.

Steve Hackett – There was a live version of Air Conditioned Nightmare which was on a 12” single of Cell 151. Just ridiculously good.

Camel – Several songs on Pressure Points, especially the ones originally on Stationary Traveller (title track, West Berlin, Fingertips, etc.)

Pretty much everything in Kansas' Two For The Show, the band sounds so tight and energetic. And because they had Livgren as a 'joker' who could switch between guitar and keyboards depending on the song, they could sound really full (frequently a problem for bands having a very rich sound in studio is that they could not replicate it live, e.g. Queen).

Many Steven Wilson's live performances of his songs in Get All You Deserve are better than their studio versions.

Thanks for the suggestions!! I'd like to add to these pearls above, the just wonderous performance of the awesome song PIRATES live at the Royal Albert Hall - what a show!!! I'm totaly overwhelmed by the fantastic ELP !!

Lots of Pink Floyd
Genesis Suppers ready on seconds out is amazing, although the studio remains my all-time fav.
The Closet Chronicles live version on The Best of Kansas is far superior to the original.

I have these versions on the Diamond Hard Blue Apples Of The Moon and mediocre sound quality aside, I think a lot of songs from that area were better on there than on Nice.

For sure these are really good and interesting suggestions! I'm looking forward to dig The Nice albums, but these with the participation of Keith Emerson are a must!!

I also prefer the live versions of Triumvirat's songs from Spartacus, "The Capitol Of Power", "The Deadly Dream Of Freedom", and "The March To The Eternal City" recorded live in Los Angeles in '75. They were remastered quite nicely and put as bonus tracks on Friday Music's reissue of Spartacus on CD. The band play incredibly tight, and The Deadly Dream Of Freedom has some tastefull six-string guitar soloing not on the studio version.
