"Live" is the first full-length live album from British hard rock band Thunder, culled from four performances at Shepherds Bush Empire, London and the Wulfrun Hall in Wolverhampton in November 1997. The accompanying CD booklet features live photos by Ross Halfin. The album also marks bassist Chris Childs' first appearance on a Thunder album.
