100 Greatest Live Albums of All Time: Live Rust
As a general rule of thumb, we can't say we give much of a second thought to best of lists. They come in all shapes and colors and of course are quite subjective and whimiscal.
Nevertheless, here's 100 Greatest Live Albums of All Time as compiled by Amazon.com. And at #11 is Neil Young's Live Rust.
Here's the Selection Criteria used by Amazon.com.:
There are plenty of live albums issued solely as afterthoughts or contract fulfillments, but there are plenty that are as transcendent as the best concert experiences, all with zero lines at the bathroom. For this particular list we came up with the following criteria:
• Only one album per artist.
• Albums were performed live in front of an audience, but don't necessarily have to be culled from a single performance.
• No EPs or singles—this list is about albums
Of course, our editors exercise their judgment regarding quality and/or historical significance. If you disagree with our choices (and there's a good chance you will), let us know in the customer discussions at the bottom of the page.
