Live at the Paramount is a live album released by Canadian rock group The Guess Who. It was recorded on May 22, 1972 at the Paramount Theatre in Seattle, Washington. The album reached #39 on the Billboard 200 album chart in the United States.[3] This was the group's only live album until the reunion in 1983.

The 2000 re-release on Compact Disc was remixed and added six bonus tracks from the same concert which did not fit on LP. Live at the Paramount was the first Guess Who album to feature Donnie McDougall on rhythm guitar and the last to feature original bassist Jim Kale. Four tracks from the show remain unreleased: "Get Your Ribbons On" (the original show opener), "Heartbroken Bopper", "Guns Guns Guns", and "Follow Your Daughter Home".
