  • 25 best live records of all time

    Week 1

    Well, I'm jumping back in with another list, and this could be the best I've found since the '50 Most Influential' that I started about 5 years ago and faithfully posted about each week until all 50 had been mentioned. It created a fair amount of interest and debate, this will last half that time, but I hope it helps to create a little excitement...well, let's say interest...around here. Here goes nothing...

    25 The Allman Brothers Band - At the Fillmore East - haven’t had your fill of “Whipping Post,” you didn’t grow up on FM Radio. Southern Rock never quite reached its potential--unless you consider Molly Hatchet transcendent--but its roots were sharp and shaggy. Had Duane Allman lived, would he have had the power to re-route its course? As the mystics say, who knows?

    This remains one of my personal favourites; Hot 'Lanta, In Memory of Elizabeth Reed...great stuff all. What say you?

      Sorry guys, that was me trying out something - I wanted to promote a thread to an article, and picked Bernd's 25 Live Albums one.
      Apologies for the confusion

    It's dangerous i know but you'd be surprised at what i found in my mum and dad's house regarding the wiring. I had to replace one socket as the earth

    LOL...Sounds like a complete joke. Just try catching up with BBCs Watchdog program and find out how many complaints are being received about power companies

    The weakest link in the chain is usually the house wiring as some electricians just do the bare minimum. i.e. loose wiring / cables not done up tightly

    For me power cables make no or a very subtle difference in sound quality. Better to have hard wired and bypass those awful iec sockets. I do use a cheap
