England's Independent has an interesting article on the death of the live album. They are probably right in saying that there will never be a live record that launches an artist's career like KISS Alive, James Brown's Live At The Apollo and U2's Under A Blood Red Sky. I just think that it's a different era; thanks to YouTube, you can pretty much see any artist performing. I think that artists like Pearl Jam or Gov't Mule, who release every concert on CD and mp3, will always do well with it, but I don't think that those releases are "live albums" in the way that Alive was. It's an interesting article though.
