Best Live Trax?

I was wondering if there is a consensus amongst hardcore fans as to the top four or five Live Trax. I have a handful of them, but I was looking to pick up a few more. I found some posts on this topic, but they were a bit dated and didnít factor in many of the recent releases. I appreciate your recommendations!

    Re: Best Live Trax?

    here's my top 4, i'm sure it's similar to a lot of other users, maybe not LT 37

    1. LT 3 Hartford, CT 8.23.00
    2. LT 8 Elkhorn, WI 8.7.04
    3. LT 39 Oakland, CA 10.31.98
    4. LT 37 Charlottesville, VA 11.10.92


    37 & 39 have a lot of go-to versions for songs

    Re: Best Live Trax?

    My Top 5 (not in a specific order)

    1)- LT6 - 1996 Hampton Coliseum
    2)- LT3 - 2000 Meadows Music
    3)- LT34 - 1999 Deer Creek
    4)- LT45 - 2013 Camden NJ
    5)- Tie L14 - 2008 Bristow VA / LT37 - 1992 Trax

    Bonus - Favorite Dave & Tim LT = LT41 - 1999 Berkeley

    I would also recommend looking into the DMBLive Series if you want some older concerts. Some really great 1993-1998 (and a few newer) in there.

    Theres something really special about LT 1. The show is one of the best LTs I have. I also love LT 3 and LT 7. I'm biased towards LT 2 and LT 26 because I was there. I was also at LT 32, but have to admit, theres better shows.

    Re: Best Live Trax?

    It's hard to pick a best out of over 40 of them, but I think Live Trax 8 is the answer. Certainly is my favorite.

    Re: Best Live Trax?

    Here are some of my favorites from the Live Trax series - strongly influenced by performance and mix, in case it helps...

    DMB:
    LT 8 (2004) (One of the best things this band has ever released, I reckon)
    LT 3 (2000)
    LT 1 (1998)
    LT 16 (2000)
    LT 40 (2002)
    LT 13 (2008)

    D&T:
    LT 48 (1994) (spectacular!)
    LT 41 (1999)

    Re: Best Live Trax?

    From a sound and mix and blend standpoint LT31 to me is the best sounding live trax even satellite is amazing with butch playing keys. I think it is extremely underrated

    From an Overall Setlist/show
    LT3, 20, and 42 are the holy trinity

    1000% agree on LT31. Probably my favorite Rapunzel, Too Much and Lover Lay down from that release/bonus disc. The ending of LLD with Carter’s work is awesome. Even DDTW sounds incredible. Carter is just a monster on the release.

    My favorite JTR is from that show. The mix is so good.

    Some good suggestions in here. Latest Live Trax I have is LT19, so glad to hear some more recent ones are quality.

    LT8 is my go-to, just genuinely great the whole way through.

    LT 3 & 5 are must haves

    LT 17 is extremely underrated. Has the best Say Goodbye

    I really like 16 too

    16 had potential but the mix is hot garbage.

    2, 8, and 19 are my favorite 3.

    To be fair, I probably haven't listened to any full LTs since 31 except for Camden 2013

    It’s a tie between LT3 and LT18, which has made its way up in the rankings lately.
