“Gigabytes of Gigs”

The live album has been a part of rock and roll for as long as the genre existed. I remember two of the first albums that I ever got were “The Beach Boys Live!” (with the exclusive gatefold concert pictures of Brian and the boys in all their pin-striped glory) and the Rolling Stones’ “Get ‘Yer Yas Yas Out” and of course “Frampton Comes Alive” and “Kiss Alive” are rock and roll classics. But now the landscape of the live album has changed and the options available to fans are greater than ever. From live downloads to live CDs available 20 minutes after the end of a concert there are a lot of cool, legal developments and Playlist Magazine covers a bunch them in their piece Live and Loving It. Pretty cool.
