Heart – Crazy On You (Live on The Midnight Special in 1977)

When satin was king, and  feathering your hair was the right thing to do. When Heart was young and some sort of lady driven rock machine. Heart doing “Crazy On You” live on Burt Sugarman’s Midnight Special. Advertisements

The Who – Sister Disco (Live Rehearsals in 1979)

“I go where the music fits my soul…” “Sister Disco” is one of my favorite songs by The Who, but it is post Keith Moon, so some fans would view that as sacrilege. Despite Moon’s absence, it’s still another songwriting triumph by Pete Townshend. Also, the videos from this rehearsal may be one of the […]

Umphrey’s McGee – Baba O’Riley (Live in 2012)

I was on a walk the other day, and Umphrey’s McGee covering “Baba O’Riley” came up on shuffle. Like so many times before, I was inspired to scour YouTube for a good audience clip of “Baba O’Riley”. I found one. Enjoy.

My Morning Jacket – Move On Up (Live at Red Rocks in 2012)

Here’s My Morning Jacket doing Curtis Mayfield’s “Move On Up” at Red Rocks in the summer of 2012. Great audio and video – multiple camera angles, close up shots – the real deal.

Jane’s Addiction – Three Days (Live from the 1997 Documentary Three Days)

The first time Jane’s Addiction re-grouped was in 1997, with Flea from The Red Hot Chili Peppers on bass. They did a documentary about the tour called Three Days that – believe it or not – included the song “Three Days”. Perry Farrell sparkles in his sky blue dress. Literally. Sparkles, I mean. There are […]

Michael McDonald – I Keep Forgettin’ (Live on Soul Train in 1982)

They just don’t make years like 1982 anymore… Michael McDonald and band on Soul Train. Doing “I Keep Forgettin’”, from his first solo record after the Doobie Brothers. It seems like a bit of an odd mix to me, but Don Cornelius, host and creator of Soul Train, practically gushes over McDonald: “And we’re delighted […]
