Live is a live album by the band Blood, Sweat & Tears, that was recorded in 1980 and released on compact disc in 1995 by Avenue Records through Rhino Records. This album was recorded at the Street Scene in Downtown Los Angeles on October 12, 1980. This set was recorded five years after the Live In Concert/Live And Improvised album. The band's hit songs included in this collection were compressed into a 15-minute medley instead of the full-length versions that were included on their previous live album. The rest of the songs here are from the Nuclear Blues album they were touring to support at the time of this recording. One exception was an 11 12-minute version of "Gimme That Wine" that was originally released on the Brand New Day album in 1977.
