Live One was a double live album released by Coil. This CD was the fourth of four releases in a series. Its counterparts are Live Four, Live Three and Live Two. This album was later released as part of Coil's box set The Key To Joy Is Disobedience.

"CD A" was originally released as Coil Presents Time Machines. It is a recording of a performance which took place on April 2 2000 at the Cornucopia festival in the Royal Festival Hallmarker in Londonmarker, Englandmarker.

"CD B" is a recording of a live concert that took place at Sonar in Barcelonamarker, Spainmarker 2000 June 17. The studio instrumental used during this performance has surfaced on the internet.

"Everything Keeps Dissolving", "Blue Chasms" and "Elves" are otherwise unreleased. However, "Elves" was widely circulated on the bootleg Backwards, in its original studio form; That version, however, is notably absent of Balance's vocals. "Circulating" is a short version of the song "Queens Of The Circulating Library", from the album with the same name.

Coil were: Jhon Balance, Peter Christopherson, Simon Norris, Thighpaulsandra on "CD A". "CD B" features all of the same artists as "CD A" with the addition of William Breeze.

This album is currently available in CD format at Coil's official website,

  • "The Universe Is A Haunted House" is listed before "Blue Chasms on "CD B": Due to the structure of later versions of the song, it can be assumed that it is the title of a suite composed of the last two songs.
  • A track indexing error cuts "Blue Chasms" off prematurely and it continues into the final track "Elves".
  • Unlike every other Coil live release (excluding Transparent), Live One is almost entirely bereft of live vocals, the one exception being "Elves", on which John Balance produces several nigh-incomprehensible screams, apparently of the same phrase. There are sampled vocals elsewhere, however, as on both versions of "Queens..." and "Chasms".
