So you go to concerts all the time? That's good. Live music can make you glad to be alive.

So you don't go to concerts very often? Well, life can get in the way. Or maybe money is an issue. Or maybe you just don't have the inclination.

Last week's column brought up the idea of live shows and how, if you can't make it to concerts, you may be able to find solace in live albums.

With that in mind, I listed some of my favorites, among them: Deep Purple's "Made in Japan." Blue Oyster Cult's "On Your Feet or On Your Knees." Neil Diamond's "Hot August Night." Yes, really.

A couple of readers responded to a call for their personal favorites, ones I didn't mention.
