Live And Let Live
is a live album released by UK neo-progressive
band Twelfth Night
The album was recorded on 4-5 November 1983 at Geoff Mann's last dates as a member of the band. Earlier in the year, Geoff had announced his wish to leave the band and this album marked his departure.
The End Of The Endless Majority was recorded during the soundcheck on 5 November 1983, to an audience of three people. During the soundcheck on one of the two dates, Deep In The Heartland was also recorded, but remains unreleased.
Both shows were also filmed to a single camera and may see release eventually.
Before there was a deal with Music For Nations to release this album, it was going to be on the band's own label, Twelfth Night Records, catalog number TN-007. Because of that catalog number, the band wanted to have the title of the album to refer to a James Bond title, and Live And Let Live was chosen.
The complete set list for both nights was The Ceiling Speaks, Human Being, The End of the Endless Majority, We Are Sane, Deep in the Heartland, Fact and Fiction, The Poet Sniffs a Flower, The Collector, Afghan Red, and Sequences. Encores: Creepshow, Art and Illusion, East of Eden, Aspidentropy, and Love Song.
