Title says all.
For me, my favorite is the third disc of Different Stages because 1. It has Geddy Lee at his vocal best, 2. It is in my favorite era of Rush, and 3. It is left raw, no overdubs.
Not sure about least favorite.
What are yours?

Favorite is:
R40 Live.
Maybe its just because its new, but I really enjoy it. Awesome set-list, Geddys voice is great and the sound mixing is really good!

Least favorite is:
Rush In Rio.
Sure, its a great concert, the set-list is good and the audience is awesome. But the sound mix destroys it all! I cant stand it! Gives me a headache every time. The new Rush In Rio bluray that came with R40 was good, they had done a good remaster on the first DVD. The video is good and the sound no longer gives me a headache, so I can finally watch it and enjoy it. Now I just want them to fix the CD. And then maybe it might be higher up on the list.

Favorite may be Different Stages discs 1 & 2. Not sure, All the World's a Stage is also very strong. My least favorite may be Time Machine Tour, bad night for Ged's voice, bad mix, and boring setlist. But I do love La Villa, Camera Eye, Far Cry and Workin Them Angels from that show

ESL is my favorite, followed closely by ATWAS.

Least favorite is Time Machine, followed closely by Different Stages, except for the 1977 live set.

I have yet to hear the Clockwork Angeles cd, or the R40 cd. But from what I have heard, Geddy is awful in his singing I in spots.

I haven't heard them all but my favourite is Exit... Stage Left and least favourite is probably Clockwork Angels tour from the ones I have listened to.

I'll say S&A by a hair because I saw the tour and love the setlist, but ATWAS or Different Stages would take that spot depending on my mood.

Time Machine is easily the worst.

R40 is my favorite (Though I'm biased since I was at both Toronto shows)

Rush In Rio is my least favorite (Because of the awful mix)

It takes a lot to beat out All The World's A Stage, but I'm going with Disc #3

I love the vibe Rush had at this point - my favorite period of their career ... The tubular bells in the intro to Something For Nothing are killer ... and Cygnus ??  unbeatable

Rio is my favorite.  I love the crowd energy, and all three of the guys were in excellent form that night.

As for my least favorite, I'm going to pick ATWAS.  Not because I don't like it—I do—I just love it the least, if that makes any sense.

No love for ASOH?? Granted its not the best live release but the video is arguably the best they had put out at the time.

All I know is both CA live and R40 are unlistenable for the most part.

Sorry, I can't bear the yodelling.

But favourite? Possibly Exit Stage Left.

R40 for me the vocals get a pass.  Cause i just love that 2nd set.

but it also contains their worst set in set 1.

Yeah that inconsistency is what bugs me...I loved the second set!

But I haven't watched the DVD. The editing on both makes me wanna turn it off, and the CD's sound better
