The best live albums?

I've done a search for this subject and not found anything, so here goes....
in the last few years I've discovered the pure joy that is the Live Album. IMO, there's something about a really great live album that is just that bit more satisfying than studio albums - I wish U2 would release more; they'd be amazing. So, I was wondering - what's everyone's favourite live album(s)? Mine are:
From Here To Eternity - The Clash
Kicking Television - Wilco
Farewell To The World - Crowded House
these are, un-coincidentally, three of my five favourite albums of all time. I guess I'm a sucker for the live stuff.

One of my favorites is Peter Gabriel's Secret World Live. Love the world music influences.

That's a great DVD, too.

In Your Eyes off that album is one of the best live tracks that I've ever heard.

I think Peter Gabriel Plays Live is quite a good live album too.

I also like Paul McCartney, Back in the US, a lot -- as well as the new one from the opening of the new stadium in New York.

And Bruce Springsteen, Live in Dublin (Seeger Sessions music).

Oh -- and Paul Simon's Concert from Central Park, 1991, is some of my favorite music. Again, great world music influences.

Laz, please please post some photos from your 80's metal days. You in a Metallica shirt, or wearing a Megadeath hat or whatever.

I really like Tori Amos's Bootlegs collection. Six double albums of nothing but Tori live and at her best.
