Is live music better experienced live or on record? Is the live album dead? Those are just two of the big philosophical questions that we’ve been wondering about more and more lately.
So, hey, what better than to explore those questions by sharing some of our favorite (and not so favorite) live album releases of 2011?
During this episode of Live Fix Radio, we’ll share the stories behind and tell you what we loved the most about new, legendary and crowd-rocking live tracks by Pearl Jam, Nirvana, Sigur Ros, Tegan and Sara. And we’ll explain how we saw the light after listening to the new Rush and Peter Frampton live albums.
And in case you missed it, you can also listen to Part One Live Album Mega-mix here.
