This week’s edition of Saturday Stream, like last week, presents a Spotify Playlist of music that was issued in 2017. Today’s collection is entirely made up of live albums and other archival recordings that surfaced over the course of the last year — some of which were also featured last week.

The year also saw archival releases from Phish, Jerry Garcia Band, the Disco Biscuits, Wilco, R.E.M., Chris Robinson Brotherhood, The White Stripes, U2, Doc & Merle Watson and more.
