It just always appeared to me like the live thing was something that the band did because it had to rather than wanting to like most bands do...hence the lifeless, rote performances on those albums.
+1 on "Get Your Ya Yas Out" - don't know why I forgot about that one.

When I was 14, I was in a band that played high school dances and socials, and "Live With Me" and "Midnight Rambler" (the GYYYO versions) were part of our set list.

That's a coincidence - I just downloaded "Tattoo You" today.

Great record.

It's amazing how almost all of the songs on that record are outtakes from previous recording sessions.
