Live and Let Live is the first live album by the British rock band 10cc. It was released in October 1977 by Mercury Records. The album features recordings from two concerts in June and July 1977, at the Hammersmith Odeon in London and the Manchester Apollo in Manchester. The album showcases the new line-up of 10cc after the departure of Kevin Godley and Lol Creme, who left the band in 1976 to pursue a solo career. The remaining members, Eric Stewart, Graham Gouldman and Paul Burgess, were joined by Rick Fenn, Stuart Tosh and Tony O’Malley.

The album includes songs from their previous albums, such as “The Wall Street Shuffle”, “I’m Mandy Fly Me” and “I’m Not in Love”, as well as songs from their latest studio album, Deceptive Bends, which was released earlier that year. The album also features a 13-minute medley of “Feel the Benefit”, which combines three songs from Deceptive Bends into one epic performance. The album received positive reviews from critics and fans, and reached No. 14 on the UK Albums Chart and No. 146 on the US Billboard 200. It was also certified Gold by the British Phonographic Industry for selling over 100,000 copies.

Live and Let Live is a must-have for fans of 10cc and for anyone who appreciates great live rock and roll.
