Live in Glasgow

Postby JayKay » Thu Sep 21, 2006 12:15 pm

Over the decades thousands of bands have played venues in Glasgow. Many of these gigs have been recorded and made available to the public, officially or not. This thread salutes the legendary live albums recorded in our city, the bands who played and the greatest audience in the world.

Starting with this one: AC/DC "If you want blood...you got it."

Recorded at the Glasgow Apollo in April 1978. Arguably the band's finest ever release, and one of the greatest live rock albums ever.

Angus and Malcolm Young were born in Glasgow and raised in Cranhill until their families moved to Australia in the 60s. Singer Bon Scott originally came from Kirriemuir before his family also emigrated.

There is no opinion, however absurd, which men will not readily embrace as soon as they can be brought to the conviction that it is generally adopted.

Not exclusivly all recorded at the Apollo, on 8th April, 1982, however the last 4 tracks on side 2 were. I was there that night, and it was the last time I saw them live.

I believe Rush recorded a live LP at the Apollo.

Also, on a less famous note, Ice T's Body Count recorded 'Body Counts Live In The House' - released over a series of EPs - at the barras.

Also, AC/DC's later live album ( called simply 'Live' ) was partly recorded at the SEC.

I was there and got to meet Bon Scott and Malcolm Young.

I've got a bootleg video of Pantera in the Barrowlands. Quality isn't too great though.

Sir Roger: never seen that Fall album before. Any details as to where and when it was recorded? If it was 1981 I was probably there 8O

Not really Josef, but there is a review here which refers to the recording as being from "the Vaults". Not sure if that refers to some long lost club or a general reference to recording vaults. You can stream clips from all the tracks at that site, perhaps you will be able to hear yourself cheering?

I can probably find out where the fall one was recorded.

I suspect the Kelvin Centre/cinema that was in Argyle Street that was an Indian Restaurant before its recent demolition but I'll consult my Fall famatic mate who will know for sure.
