Live and Let Live was 10cc's first live album, released in the Autumn of 1977. It was recorded at the Odeon Theatre in London between 18 and 20 June 1977 and the Apollo Theatre, Manchester between 16 and 17 July 1977. The album featured the new line-up of Eric Stewart, Graham Gouldman, Rick Fenn, Paul Burgess and Stuart Tosh along with Tony O'Malley. Burgess had toured with 10cc before, acting as second drummer to Kevin Godley, and also appeared on their first post-split album Deceptive Bends (1977) that was issued earlier that year. The main criticism at the time was that they only performed songs written by Stewart and Gouldman, missing out on big hits such as "Rubber Bullets", "Donna", "Life Is a Minestrone" and "The Dean and I". Also, the album replicated all but one of the songs from the previous album, which had only been out for six months. Despite this, the album was a hit, reaching No. 14 in the UK charts. No singles were issued in the UK; however, "The Wall Street Shuffle" was issued in America, but failed to reach the charts.
