100% agree. Some of my favorites come from this platform. Bob Marley and the Wailers Live! is pretty much my favorite of his releases. MMJ’s Okonokos is great. Most of the Pearl Jam music I listen to regularly are the live shows. Springsteen live recordings are amazing.
I often end up forming my opinion of a band by how well they play live, and there were bands that I finally really understood them once I saw them in a live setting (Springsteen in particular).

She is really up and down for me. I love a few of her songs and lots is just kinda meh.
yeah agreed, there are a handful of songs that i like if i ever get the hankering to hear them. i was so taken aback by the one on the radio that i almost didn't believe it was her when i looked at the station's playlist
