Live!-Live!-Live! is an album containing live recordings from 1985 Bachman-Turner Overdrive concerts in East Rutherford, NJ and Detroit, MI as the opening act on Van Halen's 5150 tour.

It was recorded with the lineup from the Bachman-Turner Overdrive 1984 reunion album - a short-lived line up of the band featuring founding members Randy Bachman, Tim Bachman, and C. F. "Fred" Turner, who had not played together since Tim's departure after the second BTO album. This lineup was joined by drummer Garry Peterson from Randy's old band, The Guess Who.

The album features a previously unreleased track, "Fragile Man," which is actually a studio version with the crowd added onto the recording. A live version of another new song, "Bad News Travels Fast", is also included. The track was only otherwise found in studio form on the soundtrack to the 1987 comedy film Body Slam. A cover of Mountain's "Mississippi Queen" rounds out the unexpected inclusions on a BTO album for this release, with Leslie West joining the band onstage at the Brendan Byrne Arena shows in East Rutherford, NJ, to perform the song with them for the live album. The audience was told the concerts were being recorded for a live album at the beginning of each recorded show.

This album was later re-released on CD and cassette as All Time Greatest Hits Live in 1990 (Curb/EMI), which is still currently in print (not to be confused with the 1994 Curb release Best of Bachman–Turner Overdrive Live, a separate concert recording from Tallahassee, Florida featuring the same line up of the band).
