Another Live is the second album by the pop rock band Utopia. It was recorded in August 1975 and released in 1975 on Bearsville. The record was the band's first fully live album.

Side one contains three songs that were never before released. (Live 1975 versions of "Mister Triscuits" and "The Wheel" can also be heard on the album Todd Rundgren's Uutopia Live at Hamnersmith Odeon '75). (Shout Music, 2012).

Side two is a mix of live cover versions of songs by band members and other artists. Jeff Lynne's "Do Ya" was a B-side to The Move's "California Man" single (1971) which had a double-track B-side also featuring the song "Ella James".

As well as referring to the fact the album was recorded live, the title is an obvious paraphrase of the phrase "Another Life," referencing the Eastern philosophical concept of reincarnation, as alluded to in the first track on Side One.

With no singles released to push it higher, the album peaked at #66 on the Billboard 200 charts.[3]
