Live albums that made them

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?

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.

Rory Gallagher, Live In Europe, Irish Tour, and isn't there another one?

Roy Buchanan, Livestock.

Both were wonderful artists who could deliver the goods live.
Led Zeppelin, How The West Was Won. With this and the BBC sessions, both so much better than that piece of crap The Song Remains The Same, one can forgive them the odd lapse.

How could I forget The Rolling Stones, Get Yer Ya-Tas Out? I listened to it every day throughout high school.
