    The Live Album Thrives The live album has always been around to showcase established

    groups in concert. Essentially, the album is a greatest hits package with one or two new songs recorded over the excitement of an actual audience instead of an engineer. But, the Cash Box Top 200 Album Chart shows a recent surge of live albums by major artists and alludes to one key point for the record manufacturer - profitability.

    As studio costs continue to rise, the live recording becomes more attractive to the manufacturer and also to the artist, who needs no new material and is already booked for the concert. Despite the profit potential, the recent live releases are also good listenable albums.

    The current Cash Box Top 200 Album Chart shows almost 20 live albums, with five in the top 25. List prices range from $6.98 to $14.98, but the most recent releases by the Bee Gees, Bette M idler and Barry Manilow are listed at $11.98. Most are double -sets which justify the increased list, but the decrease in recording costs should balance that out.

    The poor technical quality of the Beatles -Hamburg live album exemplifies the technological advances that live recordings have taken in the last 15 years. And, a good live album can se!I concert tickets if the artist is able to duplicate the enlivened atmosphere to vinyl. Besides selling concert tickets, it is also an ideal way to showcase an artists' catalogue and sell previous releases.

    Record manufacturers have been intelligent enough to record and push their major acts that do have good live shows, and sales prove their philosophy accurate. Barry Manilow's live album is currently #2 on the chart and debuted at #27. The Bee Gees newest release, presently bulleted at #10, helped RSO to experience their biggest sales month in company history.

    The sales are there, and as long as they continue, manufacturers will keep pushing live releases. The marriage of television and rock music has also been helpful in promoting the live aspect and this trend is sure to continue.
