On Stage for me. It is a much stronger album than any of the other live albums.

I never listen to MSG as I find it pretty bad (bad sound/mix). Also I find MSG more to be an "event" than really great music. The show is much to rushed.

I go for MSG.I think it's the best representation of a live show from that list.In 72 he was still in charge on stage and he gives a strong no nonsense performance.On Stage is great but doesnt really convey the feel of a concert.I aslo think his voice is very strong on MSG.When I got my japenese paper sleeve copy it was like hearing that cd for the first time.Makes a huge difference.

in neck and neck with INPERSON for me....

I voted for MSG!
Hard choice since both Msg and the live LP from Memphis to Vegas/Vegas
to Memphis were my favorite albums I bought as a kid when Elvis was still alive.
They hit me right in the face when I heard them the first time.
In fact, they are still my favorite albums to this day of the ones released during his lifetime.
I´ve played these records thousands of times.
Johnny B Goode and Mystery Train/Tiger man from 69 rocks BIG TIME.
The pace of the MSG is perhaps a bit rushed but it makes at least me feel like he wanted to knock em dead with high energy and a great show.
I don´t think that all old numbers are throwawys, save maybe Love me tender and All shook up. It was one of the last times Hound dog was
performed decent at lest.

Well as you can guess, I really love these records.
