Ahh - you reminded me of this off the same DVD:

Stir It Up - The Wailers https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rf8GjhXvOjU

All the more astonishing as it was sandwiched in between dates in Peckham and Hatfield...

Fucking great suggestions in here.

Here's Janelle Monae on Letterman. I sent this clip to Graham Linehan on Twitter whose famous friends subsequently shared it around, so in my view her blossoming popularity in UK was partly down to my good taste. The band are stars themselves and everyone's on top form. I think she fairly deserves the James Brown cloak by the song's end: http://youtu.be/rzZnao2fbRQ

The Make Up - Live In The Rhythm Hive

I love the initial bafflement of the French TV audience which swiftly turns into a joyous call and response section. And for the rather odd lyric 'I'm going to put you on the special couch.'

Cool as.

The Cramps performing live at Napa State Mental Hospital. It's just as inspired and chaotic as you would imagine it to be. Absolutely brilliant.

White Stripes, Let's Shake Hands, the first track from their Under Great White Northern Lights film. I liked them before I saw this, loved them after.

At least one of these funky men is coming up on acid live in a television studio in 1969, and making a pretty good noise, too. The Parliaments morphing into Funkadelic before your eyes, I love the way it just disintegrates during the last 3 minutes, Eddie Hazel starts playing guitar with his teeth, Clinton rolls around on the floor while the audience members, coaxed out to dance with band, look for a way to extricate themselves. How the greatest clip on youtube has only 172,000 views is a travesty and a condemnation of humanity. I believe the drummer was shipped off to Vietnam within months, strange times. 

Skip to 3:03 if your short of time or impatient for magical shit to start happening

Absolutely unreal. Unreal. Thank God we're alive.

There are too many to name and I wouldn't want to clog the thread with my nonsense, so I'll just nominate this recent in-studio performance by Dir en grey of a song off their new album.  The vocals in particular are astonishingly competent for some really tricky lines:  http://youtu.be/OpcYnVEMZyc
Also this is one of their more emotive live performances I've seen:  http://youtu.be/XU0xIuPXu9g

So while we're doing some rock'n'roll ...

This one from Faith No More playing Evidence at a festival, where Mike Patton enters the crowd and tries to get them to sing it in Dutch:  http://youtu.be/hHR9FZE2pbc (to be honest, almost any Mike Patton performance is worth watching)

This entire concert from Melvinshttp://youtu.be/rFgzPojlwIE

And for a softer one, I suppose this counts as live - Danny Cavanagh & Anneke Van Giersbergenhttp://youtu.be/bFKmS_t4qck

I love this Journey performance.  I always forget what a brilliant frontman Steve Perry was.  Also, there's something about Neil Schon and his playing style that a find quite objectionable.

After another lacklustre Superbowl half-time show at the weekend, I was going to post a link to Prince in 2007.
Not on YouTube though, unfortunately.

Otis Rush wearing a sweater

Best Rush[NB]Otis[/NB] footage ever.


Here's an interesting one - a not-at-all famous American guitar teacher called Peter Green[NB]Not that one, and no relation[/NB] not only doing a masterful cover of Jorma Kaukonen's Embryonic Journey, but also playing it far better than Jorma himself ever did live - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zlPzwYZBAUU

The Mahavishnu Orchestra (mark 1) at the peak of their powers playing Hope in 1973 - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jIbGxhCoe5c

More Focus on OGWT, a rare in-tune performance of Sylvia (segueing into Hocus Pocus Reprise) - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-v7LzOeTkfM

Bill Withers at the Zaire festival in 1974 doing Hope She'll Be Happier.  Not the full song, and not as good as the definitive version on the Carnegie Hall album, but the man bares his soul nonetheless - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NYog2KV_yOU

Johnny Winter doing Mean Town Blues at Woodstock, featuring a 12 string slide solo - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kJSEZeNrKNM

Genesis doing The Cinema Show in 1976 (skip to 1.31 to get past the pointless silent film footage) - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kJSEZeNrKNM

Despite being at the shit-end of their career, Gentle Giant doing an amazing On Reflection in 1978 - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=z6WSLG5r-wE

And Fleetwood Mac doing Oh Well live at the Beeb - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=O8RhZDGLEXM

Oh, and how dare I forget Little Feat on OGWT in 1975 - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=p9QxFWnUMCI

I've been enjoying some live MC5 footage for the last few months, wish there were more of it around.

1970 Looking at You nice shapes by Wayne Kramer at 3:40

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dfDoUIh23Wg

from the same affair Kick out the Jams though they do tend to speed through it for some reason I couldn't possibly fathom. Still kicks some fucking arse though.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uo35O1AJOfg

There's a bloke watching on stage possibly performing some of the first air guitar every filmed, but I think Joe Cocker may have the nod.

Probably a love or hate performance for most but this version of NO Quarter by Led Zeppelin from 1975 is definitely the former for me..

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FS_lZPSwynM

Fairly standard for the first few mins but the Jazz/classic fusion stuff from 4:30 is pretty great IMHO, John Paul Jones sounds like he'd been listening to some Keith Jarrett.

A live performance in a warehouse with cool lighting, ending with a surprise dance that I think is so spectacular I regularly open up the video just to watch it over and over again (sorry for spoiling the surprise dance): https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=INcUV8ygIjo

I actually find there late live stuff more interesting just because it captures something that was never really there on record in that era when they switched to using multitracking. It achieved the impossible as well and got a mid 70's west german student tapping his foot slightly.
