91946o6MUJL._SL1500_In my opinion the best LIVE concert albums are those that capture a band in a single performance rather than an album that is pieced together from various shows.

Thankfully the good folks at Eagle Rock Entertainment have done just that by offering up 2 classic Rolling Stones performance from 1975 and 1981. Both of these shows are offered as CD/DVD combo packs so you get to see and hear the band at the top of their game.

The 1975 show is taken from a live concert recorded at the Los Angeles Forum on July 12th. The set features Ronnie Wood on his first tour as a member of the band and the whole show is a down and dirty hits filled set that has Wood perfectly meshing with his new guitar counterpart Keith Richards.

The 1981 show finds the band at the top of their game touring in support of the hugely successful “Tattoo You” album.  Recorded LIVE on December 18th (Keith’s Birthday) at the Hampton Coliseum.  This show introduces audiences to the stadium attraction The Rolling Stones would become and continue to be almost 35 years later.

Both of these sets are perfect for any Rolling Stones fan and are better than most of the LIVE albums that have been released previously.

Drumroll please…

LA Forum LIVE in 1975… 9 out of 10 drumsticks!!!

Hampton Coliseum LIVE in 1981… 10 out of 10 drumsticks!!!
