Never a flash in the pan. MUSIC.
I have to say out of all the bands I have listened to, Quarterflash was as close to the album as any live version I have listened to.

You are naming some greats for sure.  But Quarterflash is one of the few bands to me that sounded like the album.

I have been to some concerts where the bands did not sound like the album.

All of those bands were excellent when I saw them.
The Cult was surprisingly good. They opened for Metallica back in '86ish, I was blown away by how good they were.

I loved Rush when they opened for KISS. Second album. "Xanadu" tripped me.

Did someone say "Xanadu"?

I wont point out the fact that ELO  wrote Xanadu only to be covered by Olivia Newton John.

Wrong 'Xanadu'.  Here's the one GS was referring to:





And not to be pedantic about it, but the ELO 'Xanadu' wasn't covered by Olivia Newton John.  It was a collaboration.

Yep. A 'cover' would be someone re-releasing the song as they interpreted it.

Another important distinction is that RUSH's 'Xanadu' is a fucking musical masterpiece, whereas the ELO one is the kind of dreadful synthopop that makes you want to find Jeff Lynne and punch him in the throat.
