Though live albums dot the entire list of releases, this year's Record Store Day contains enough noteworthy concert recordings that it's worth highlighting five additional potential purchases from across the spectrum. Deadheads will surely gravitate toward the 1979's Live at Hampton Coliseum, and fans looking for smaller, darker jams should go further with J Spaceman & Kid Millions' Live at Le Poisson Rouge. Devo's Live at Max's Kansas City: November 15, 1977, though, includes not just a full set but an introduction from fan David Bowie, and Jimmy Page and the Black Crowes' Live at the Greek rocks out over three discs. There's also LCD Soundsystem's The Long Goodbye, a recording of the group's final show that itself stretches across five.
