Recorded live track

A recorded live track is a song or audio sequence recorded from live performances (e.g. concerts, comedy clubs, etc.).
Live song tracks typically have concert hall noise (cheering, whistling, applause, etc.). Though often less precise than practiced, studio recordings, live recordings may offer a more exciting feel. They may also feature altered arrangements, different from widely heard studio recordings.
Sometimes, a studio recorded track (the original version or a cleanly re-recorded version) has cheering dubbed onto it to give the illusion of it being a live track. Examples include Cab Calloway's 1980 remake of "Minnie the Moocher", Jimi Hendrix's "Voodoo Chile", King's X's cover of "Manic Depression", Johnny Rivers's "Live At The Whisky-a-Go-Go" series, "Rock and Roll Band" by Boston, and "The Spirit of Radio" by Rush.
