Redgum caught in the act live

Caught in the Act is the fourth album by Australian folk group Redgum, released in 1983 on Epic Records. It was the only full-length live album they released. The title is taken from the sixth track, which was also featured on Brown Rice and Kerosine.


It features "I Was Only Nineteen", which was a number one hit in Australia.

As of 2015, Caught in the Act is the only Redgum album that is still in print on CD, aside from the greatest hits albums Against the Grain and The Essential Redgum.
