Live was the first official live, and overall sixth, album by the British band Happy Mondays, recorded live at Elland Road stadium, Leeds, England on 1 June 1991.

Many bootleg recordings of Happy Mondays were coming out at the time. This is the same show as the Baby Big Head Bootleg Album, which was sufficiently popular that the band released it officially.[1]

The album is viewed with disdain by many, who see it as an attempt to cash in on the proliferation of live bootleg recordings of the time.[citation needed] Others view the album as a fascinating document of a band who defined the Madchester era, delivered in superior sound quality compared to that of the many bootlegs.[citation needed]
