Music fans have voted for their favourite live rock album of all time – Thin Lizzy’s Live and Dangerous.
The live album was recorded by the band famed for hits like The Boys Are Back In Town, in 1978.
Strangers in the Night, released a year later by heavy metal outfit UFO, comes second in the music poll for Classic Rock magazine.
The British band and its frontman Phil Mogg recorded the classic on two US concert dates.
Made in Japan by Deep Purple, once credited in the Guinness Book of World Records as the world’s loudest band, came third in the list of the Ten Greatest Live Albums.
If You Want Blood, You’ve Got it, by Australian rockers AC/DC, came fourth, followed by the Led Zeppelin offering How the West Was Won.
The Who’s Live at Leeds, recorded in 1970, is sixth followed by the Judas Priest album Unleashed in the East (1979).
Classic Rock magazine editor Sian Llewellyn said: “Thin Lizzy’s album encapsulates the energy and fervour of Lizzy at their prime.
“The album was one of the first to show that a live album can really capture the excitement of the music as well as a studio album.
“With a good live album you can crank it up and feel the energy as if you were there. You can feel the atmosphere in the crowd without it encroaching too much on the music.”
Eighth in the list is Hawkwind’s Space Ritual (1973), followed by Exit Stage Left by Rush, a more recent offering from 1981, and Irish Tour by Rory Gallagher (1974).
