With the death of Gregg Allman, it made me think that Live at the Filmore East really made that band. Sure, they had their fans before that, but they became a household name after.

I would say the same about Frampton Comes Alive and Kiss Alive, just off the top of my head.

Agree? Disagree?

Any others y0u think are like this?

No, highdeaf. Thier first album was the birth of southern rock. It blew our minds at the time and it was never topped for me. I saw them live in Minneapolis circa 1969/70. It was OK, I guess. I don't remember a note.

Didn't really make them but Humble Pie Rockin the Fillmore is a great live listen.

I don't know about live albums, but Ten Years After really took off after the Woodstock film

"plays live" is one of my top live recordings

*edit* oops "recorded live"

I know it wasn't their first album, but that was the one I heard on the radio and at parties. A lot. Don't remember them before that, TBH.

Same with the other two I mentioned - they'd been around for years, but those two live albums broke Frampton and Kiss huge. You couldn't go anywhere without hearing "Do You Feel...." and that talkbox.

The two @bw66 mentioned I think are the same. Don't recall a lot of Cheap Trick before Budakon.

I do love that BOC album, but I think they were pretty big before that came out.

Mainline, Bump & Grind Review. I always felt like I was right there in the seedy old theatre.

I don't think it made them a household name or anything, but the live record form Crowbar (the Canadian band), early 70s, recorded in Toronto I think, was cool, and long lost from my collection.

Live at Leeds was my pick.
Honourable Mentions:
Johnny Cash at Folsom
Kiss Alive
Springsteen Live 75-85
Judas Priest Unleashed in the East
Rush Exit stage left

it wasn't recorded but since Memorial Day just passed, cant help but think the 1983 Memorial Day Concert really put Van Halen on the map.

I first noticed them at 15, when they opened for Kiss at Varsity Stadium in '76.
After the concert, we walked up Younge St and I bought that album.
