Rummaging through my rock concert DVD collection a few days ago, I came across "Woodstock" and popped the disc in to catch some of my fave tracks again.
Was, as always, blown away by Joe Cocker's "A Little Help From My Friends", which you either hate or love. My wife, for example, loved listening to the audio from our LP but hated watching Cocker writhe while singing it.
For me, it's love --- his er, unique, performance is one of the single most powerful and intense rock/blues cuts I've ever seen.
Regardless of how Cocker's Woodstock performance ranks as a hard rock/blues classic, he did "win" the Lifetime Air Guitar Award -- nobody has outdone him on air guitar before or since.
But anyway, that track is I suppose my #1 concert DVD cut for hard rock/blues. Ranking near this is Janet Joplin's "Ball and Chain" from the Monterey Pop concert. Another top rank performance is Muddy Waters' "Man Child" from the Band's Last Waltz concert.
You have any real fine fave rock/blues concert performance video tracks to recommend or "vote" for? Who's tops with you?
This has got to be something available to watch -- we've also got our fave live performance jams, of course. For me, most intense live performance was being about 30 feet from Hendrix when he played Foxy Lady.
