Play live when recording?

I think that's what a band I know did and the record sounds great, not too produced.

Sanni's advice is the best advice. maybe you just need a crowd & the whole live-feel, the pressure to play good, when you're recorded. I know I would. I play much better on stage, than off stage. plus the reactions of the crowd influence your playing positively & when a crowd goes mad, it's great to have that on cd. the atmosphere of enthousiastic people loving the music is catchy & hopefully catches on with the people who listen to your cd.

Exactly that.
Try not to over-produce yourself, if you do things will sound too clean and not have any balls to it, try to keep your recordings a bit more raw.

Yeah. If you are miked up to a PA when you play gigs see if the soundguy will let you run a line out into a tape recorder, or even better, a laptop.
