These days, live albums are often just a means to cash in one last time on a highly successful tour. Back in the Seventies, however, a live album was a great way to create a superstar. Acts as diverse as Cheap Trick, Kiss and Peter Frampton were all stuck at one level in their career before a monster live album forever changed their lives.
