A live album is a recording consisting of material (usually music) recorded during stage performances using remote recording techniques, commonly contrasted with a studio album. Live albums may be recorded at a single concert, or combine recordings made at multiple concerts.
Live albums usually have a less "finished" character than a studio album, and are intended to reproduce some of the experience of attending a concert performance. As such, they may include applause and other noise from the audience, comments by the performers between pieces, mistakes, and so on. They often employ multitrack recording direct from the stage sound system (rather than microphones placed among the audience), and can employ additional manipulation and effects during post-production to enhance the quality of the recording. Live albums also sometimes contain an unreleased or never-before-heard studio track.
