America Live is the first official live album by American folk rock duo America, released by Warner Bros. Records in October 1977. The album was recorded in July 1977 at the Greek Theater in Los Angeles, California. It was the first to feature America as a duo, as Dan Peek had left the group for a solo career two months prior to the recording of this album. The album was produced by George Martin.

America Live is the first official live album by American folk rock duo America, released by Warner Bros. Commercially, the album performed poorly compared with America's other albums; it reached number 127 on the Billboard 200. No singles were released from this album.

The performance and the sound quality are both excellent, and depict the band in a more basic rock setting than their "official" Warner Bros. live album from 1977, which featured the presence of a large contingent of backing musicians. The work here is more viscerally exciting, the singing is impeccable, and the instruments have a nice, healthy, up-front presence.

I enjoyed this live album. Only Roundabout sounded a bit weak (but there are loads of versions of it, so not such a big deal).
