It was the first of three official live album releases by Gasolin' and it is considered to be the definitive one. The other live albums are Live i Skandinavien and Derudaf Forever. Live sådan was produced by Franz Beckerlee and Roy Thomas Baker and engineered by Freddy Hansson. It was the first Gasolin' album to be recorded in Sweet Silence Mobile Studio. The majority of the songs from this live recording was taken from Stakkels Jim and Gas 5.
Live sådan contains 14 live songs and one studio song: "Hva' gør vi nu, lille du?". The studio song was omitted when Live sådan was released on compact disc in 1989. Live sådan is also included in The Black Box box set. Live sådan contains two songs not written by Gasolin' themselves: "Keep on Knockin'" by Perry Bradford and made famous by Little Richard, and "Sort, sort, sort" which is an old Danish folk song.
"Hva' gør vi nu, lille du?" was released as a single with "Keep on Knockin'" as the B side.
Musens sang, Den allersidste dans, Pige træd varsomt, Å hvor jeg, ih, hvor jeg, uh hvor jeg vil, I dit korte liv, Man binder os på mund og hånd, Alle går rundt og forelsker sig, Gå ud og gå en tur, Glemmer du, Titte til hinanden, Drømmeland & Gå med i lunden (Kai Normann Andersen)
