Live and Rare is a compilation album by alternative rock band Jane's Addiction, released in 1991 through Warner Bros. Records. The release is essentially a collection of early b-sides, demos, and live cuts.


The original two versions of this compilation were released in Japan in late 1991. The first is the regular release; it come with a separate spinal label with the album information in Japanese and a lyric sheet. Lyrics are provided in both English and Japanese. The regular release came with a white CD holder instead of the more traditional gray-black holder.

The second version is a limited edition version that comes in a coffin box. Only 1000 of these coffin versions were released. It comes with everything that is in the regular version, but also includes four photographs (Photo 1, Photo 2, Photo 3, Photo 4) and a numbered certificate. (Certificate 1, Certificate 2)

The third and final version is an Australian re-release of the standard version. The only differences between this and the original version is the lack of Japanese language material, the slightly different disc and spinal printing, and the disc comes on the traditional gray-black disc holder.
