Larger Than Live is the fifth studio album by heavy metal band Keel. It was released in 1989 on Gold Mountain Records. The album consists of six new studio tracks and six of the band's previous songs recorded live at The Roxy in West Hollywood, CA. It was also the only album to feature keyboardist Scott Warren and guitarist Tony Palamucci (as guitarist Marc Ferrari left the band due to creative and personal differences).

Following the filming of the music video for the song "Dreams Are Not Enough," lead vocalist/founder Ron Keel announced the disbandment of Keel.[3]
