Well I just resized the mp3s of songs I use in portable players to 192k
to save hd space since you can't play flac files natively on many
players. So I'm now going thru all my music deleting alt versions of
songs, remixes, live songs etc to save even more space. I find that
stuff somewhat interesting but I can definitely live without it. So how
do you guys like alternate versions of songs? Also I know this is going
to be blasphemy I'm not a fan of live albums unless they're dvds or blu
rays.

Not blasphemy to me, I usually will not listen to live albums. Often
they do that fake ass "cheer" on crap, and sometimes make a short song
real long and so on.
As for DVD's I rarely watch one more than one or two times.

albums by the likes of Maiden, Slayer, Manowar, Thin Lizzy, Rush & Priest
that I`d hate to be without.

Ironic that about 6 years ago there were no Priest albums that you
even wanted.

I will say that some of the said above live albums were heavily
played back in the day for me, but I almost never listen to live
albums anymore.

Looking forward to the Bloodbath release next.

I didn't even know who he was before today I've never heard Opeth live
stuff. Hell I know very few names of band members anymore. Shame on me.

So many Swedes, fins and Norweigians. I couldn't pronounce many of
their names.

Tom

I don't know many of them, either.

I used to a know a ton of them back in the day when I read the mags all
the time and read a lot of interviews online but nowadays I just listen
to the stuff and go to shows when I'm able too. I guess it's just part
of getting older.

Agreed. I wouldn't be without my live albums. I would add Pink Floyd
(mainly the bootlegs, but don't mind the post-Waters live stuff), Iced
Earth, Opeth, Kreator, Led Zep, Queen, Rainbow and I might even add
the new Immortal, At The Gates and Amorphis live albums as well.

Live Zep is the only way I really listen to Zep anymore.

I would recommend any of Opeth's live stuff, but it kind of depends on
how much you like the band and which albums. If you like BWP then
check out the new release from the Royal Albert Hall, if you like
Deliverance/Damnation then check out Lamentations. The Roundhouse
Tapes just for a broad mix of all of their stuff.

Personally I would opt for the Albert Hall, but I am just a tad biased
on that one.

The RAH release is much better than Lamentations IMHO.

I like all three live releases, but RAH is head and shoulders above
the rest. Playing BWP from beginning to end had me in orgasmic
ecstasy on the day and still does now.

My only disappointment from the whole thing....them selling out of the
exclusive RAH tour t-shirts.

Has the generic one instead.

The full version of Kashmir is still one of the best rock epics
around.

III, Houses of the Holy and Physical Graffiti are still personal
favourites and I tend to dig them out for a listen every so often.

I still like most of Zeps catalogue, each of albums has something
essential on it for me.

I am not saying I don't like Led Zeppelin, just I have heard them so
much I don't feel I need to hear them anymore. Maybe I'll find some
time to listen to some of their stuff just for the retro.

All great albums. I don't really think they made a bad album. I have
just heard it all so much that I only reach for the live sessions
anymore when I want to get the Led out.
