#BestLiveAlbums

There’s been a huge response for Best Live Albums, a new concept in best live albuming that should be with us in the spring.

At the time of writing over fifty contributors and to get fair, they couldn’t have done it without me.

So in this article you will find an A To Z of all titles sent in so far along with the contributor’s Twitter username.

This has involved an extraordinary amount of finger work but it will help run the competition a lot more smoothly.

This lust will of course be updated should any more lists come in but even without a calculator I would estimate some four hundred albums have been nominated. Here is the list.
