Mailman Jack’s Nifty Fifty – Volume 3

I own WAY TOO MANY RECORDS, and we haven’t even scratched the surface. Let’s keep this train rolling, with some LIVE Records.

Genesis – Three Sides Live: Let’s just start by saying that I absolutely love this double vinyl masterpiece. My favorite track is Dodo, but it’s all great.

Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers – Pack Up the Plantation: You wouldn’t think that some live versions could actually outshine the studio recordings, but some do. Give The Waiting and Breakdown a listen or tree.


UFO – Strangers in the Night: A great double LP, much of which was recorded at the now defunct International Amphitheater. Also, I currently don’t have a decent copy on vinyl, my birthday is in August. (Hint, hint)


Buck Owens and his Buckaroos – Live at Carnegie Hall: I don’t care if you’re not a fan, listen, the music is great and it’s hysterical.


Bruce Springsteen – Live 1975 to 1985: Just for the vastness alone, it’s 5 records, this is worth the investment. (Thanks to @TradeshowScott for gifting me with this beauty)


Johnny Cash – Live at Folsom Prison: A ballsy place to give a concert, to say the least.


Peter Frampton – Frampton Comes Alive: Do you, You, feel like I do? …… Just enjoy it, don’t judge.


Bob Seger and the Silver Bullet Band – Live Bullet: Please, indulge me, it’s really good.


The Who – Live at Leeds: It doesn’t get much better than this. Thank me later.


Frank Sinatra – The Main Event: Great live recording that also reminds me of my parents.


Bonus: Iggy & The Stooges – Metallic KO: Spoiler Alert! Iggy gets it in the end.


Double Bonus:  Stevie Ray Vaughn – Live at Carnegie Hall: It contains my favorite version of Pride and Joy.


Next up, 80’s records!
