The Best Live Album of All-Time

Slate is asking readers to pick a best live album of all-time.  You can weigh-in here.  From Slate’s choices I would select Johnny Cash’s Live at Folsom Prison, closely followed by Bob Dylan and the Band’s Before the Flood (where is his live album from Albert Hall?).  I also love Aretha Franklin’s Live at Fillmore West and have a soft spot for Frampton Comes Alive because it was ubiquitous later in my high school years.  Great live albums that inexplicably didn’t make the list include offerings from James Taylor, Bob Seger and the Eagles.  Simon & Garfunkel’s The Concert from Central Park has to be on the list (I was there), but isn’t.  And where’s the Grateful Dead?
