Do you prefer live music or studio recorded albums?
So do you like live music or studio recorded music from your favorite bands? Or how about live sessions recorded in a studio without an audience?
I like both. However I think first loves for songs would be studio tracks as that is the "first" version you're likely to hear. Then live tracks would depend on recording quality and how well the overall concert went (whether or not they were on top of their game).
Or if its a local band do you have to have live since they don't have enough to put together a studio album?
