Today we revealed Live Current Volume 11, this year's compilation of the best in-studio performances recorded live in the studios of 89.3 The Current. Live Current Volume 11 isn't available in stores, but you can get your copy when you become a member.

As we've been playing the tracks from Live Current Volume 11 this morning, it's really made us appreciate the energy of live album cuts. It brought to mind other favorite "live" albums that are out there. What are some of your favorite live recordings? Let's make that our theme for today.
