My choice at number 27 is Elvis‘ excellent live record On Stage.
I missed the closeness of a live audience. So just as soon as I got out of the movie contracts I started to do live performances again.

This is an absolutely stunning live album and the best official live album from Elvis , better than That’s the Way It Is.
The album was recorded Feb 17-19 in 1970, Elvis was just starting his Las Vegas run (the “Vegas years” – 1969-76) & the Band & backing groups sounded great.
