Love You Live , released in September 1977, is a live double album by the Rolling Stones , recorded during a 1976 tour of Europe and a performance in Canada in 1977. The album was produced by The Glimmer Twins .

Most of the album was recorded at concerts in Toronto (1977) and Paris (1976). Tracks 11 to 14 were recorded in a small club called El Mocambo in Toronto, Canada , where the Stones performed in front of just a few hundred fans in March 1977. Many recordings were changed through subsequent overdubs and cuts. The quality of these live recordings is generally considered to be rather low. The Rolling Stones sound both musically and tonally rough and unpolished. Presumably this is also due to the change in the band line-up. It was the first European and North American tour in which Ron Wood took part as the second guitarist alongside Keith Richards. Keith Richards' arrest for possession of a large amount of heroin and his subsequent release on bail in Canada should be mentioned at the same time. This ultimately motivated him to seriously withdraw from drugs and to stay “clean” . The focus was also on his family, the band and the fans.

As with the Rolling Stones album Sticky Fingers , Andy Warhol designed the album cover . Love You Live reached 3rd place in the charts in Great Britain and the USA.
