Live performances you wish you were there for

not a song I'd expect to be enhanced by a 9 minute version but this just drives home how tight the band was and what a showman Toots is... 

what you got?

    Too many if I list all the 60s and 70s artists that have passed and 80s artists I was too young for in their prime (specifically, reggae and dancehall)
    But off the top of my head:
    Zaire 74
    Aretha at the Filmore West
    Monk's come back at the Five Spot
    Bill Withers at Carnegie Hall
    Joy Division - Moonlight Club
    Joy Division - Birmingham University
    Hawkwind Space Ritual tour

  • Yeah! Zaire 74 is a good call, and pretty much everybody at the fillmore west for like a decade straight.

    I'd kill to have seen JB in Dallas August '68, the "Say It Live and Loud" show where everything is about 140bpm.

    Yeah. Way to many to count. The ones that always come to the top of my mind are

    I would have loved to catch a Specials show in the early 80's.
