What other Elektra albums were released?

ABSOLUTELY LIVE

(July 1970, not available on CD)

Who Do You Love / Medley: < Alabama Song (Whisky Bar) / Back Door Man / Love Hides / Five To One > / Build Me A Woman / When The Music's Over / Close To You / Universal Mind / Break On Through #2 / The Celebration Of The Lizard / Soul Kitchen

The liner notes say this album was recorded in New York and Philadelphia. Based on Jim's conversations with the audience, the New York material is almost certainly from the shows on January 17 & 18, 1970 at the Felt Forum.

The Philadelphia show was either the one in the summer of '69 or the one at the Spectrum in April 1970. Hopkins & Sugerman's book No One Here Gets Out Alive, however, claims that this recording of The Celebration Of The Lizard was from the Aquarius Theatre in Hollywood.

Who Do You Love is definitely from Philadelphia, and When The Music's Over is definitely from New York.

All the songs on this album are available on the In Concert 2-CD set.

 

ALIVE SHE CRIED

(November 1983, available on CD)

Gloria / Light My Fire (including Graveyard Poem) / You Make Me Real / Texas Radio And The Big Beat / Love Me Two Times / Little Red Rooster / Moonlight Drive (including Horse Latitudes)

The liner notes say these songs were recorded between 68-70 in Los Angeles, New York, Detriot, Boston and Copenhagen. The Copenhagen tracks are Texas Radio And The Big Beat and Love Me Two Times, which were recorded for a TV show in Denmark in 1968.

Gloria was the sound check for one of the two Monday night performances at the Aquarius Theatre in Hollywood, July 1969. The presence of John Sebastian marks Little Red Rooster as coming from the Felt Forum, New York shows on January 17 and 18, 1970.

The only concerts in Detroit and Boston that I know of are the April 9, 1970 Boston show and the 1970 Cobo Hall show in Detroit.

All the songs on this album are available on the In Concert 2-CD set.

 

LIVE AT THE HOLLYWOOD BOWL

(June 1987, available on CD)

Wake Up / Light My Fire / Unknown Soldier / A Little Game / The Hill Dwellers / Spanish Caravan / Light My Fire (edit) [CD only]

These songs were recorded on July 5th, 1969 at the Hollywood Bowl in Los Angeles, California.

 

IN CONCERT

(May 1990, available on CD)

House Announcer / Who Do You Love / Medley: Alabama Song (Whisky Bar) / Back Door Man / Love Hides / Five To One > / Build Me A Woman / When The Music's Over / Universal Mind / Medley: < Dead Cats, Dead Rats / Break On Through #2 > / The Celebration Of The Lizard: < Lions In The Street / Wake Up / A Little Game / The Hill Dwellers / Not To Touch The Earth / Names Of The Kingdom / The Palace Of Exile > / Soul Kitchen / Roadhouse Blues / Gloria / Light My Fire (including Graveyard Poem) / You Make Me Real / Texas Radio And The Big Beat / Love Me Two Times / Little Red Rooster / Moonlight Drive (including Horse Latitudes) / Close To You / The Unknown Soldier / The End

This album is an encapsulation of all the material from Absolutely Live and Alive She Cried, with the live Roadhouse Blues that was issued as a single in 1979, the version of The Unknown Soldier from Live At The Hollywood Bowl, and the previously unreleased The End, also from the Hollywood Bowl concert.

The liner notes list Los Angeles, New York, Boston, Philadelphia, Pittsburgh, Detroit and Copenhagen as being recording sites for this compilation. The material from Absolutely Live (the entire first disc and Close To You) was recorded in is from New York and Philadelphia.

The tracks from Alive She Cried (from Gloria through Moonlight Drive/Horse Latitudes on the second disc) are from Los Angeles, New York, Detriot, Boston and Copenhagen.

The Hollywood Bowl is in Los Angeles, so the two tracks from that concert are accounted for. Only Roadhouse Blues and Pittsburgh remain, so it is probably safe to assume that track is from that location.
