Well, to me, it's the other way around - Ummagumma is a studio album with a really good live album as a bonus. |
Still, while I don't agree with you skipping Ummagumma for that reason, I can understand it. With a few exceptions...
Absent Lovers - King Crimson
Live At Winterland '68 - Janis Joplin/Big Brother & The Holding Company
Space Ritual - Hawkwind
Pictures At An Exhibition - Emerson, Lake & Palmer
Woodstock - Jimi Hendrix
...I find live albums to be superfluous.
: Yup, I consider Ummagumma to be a live album
: with a bonus studio LP attached.
: My plan (though not set in stone) is, upon
: reaching the end of any given band's
: discography, to provide a brief review of
: one select live album. Ummagumma will
: probably represent Pink Floyd, although
: Pulse is also possible.
: The live album I choose might not
: necessarily be the band's best live album.
: For example, if I ever review Rush I might
: well review A Show of Hands rather than
: the more acclaimed Exit: Stage Left ,
: precisely because the latter gets so much
: more attention already.
: Hope this helps.
