SRV - Live at the El Mocambo - I actually have it on VHS! You can tell the entire band is going to go huge and it's very intimate.

Monterey Pop & Woodstock, too.........ah, the good old days....before me!

Toto Live in Amsterdam gets regularly played. Also, while not a chops fest by any means, I still really like Stop Making Sense by Talking Heads.

Black Sabbath Paris 1970. They were so tight and impassioned then, and Bill Ward was on fire on a 4-Piece kit.

1st that came to mind was "Stop Making Sense"
2nd that comes to mind is Jethro Tull Isle of Wight
3rd ... does Zappa's "Baby Snakes" count?
jeez, gotta mention "Last Waltz" ...

honorable mention to Dan Hicks and His Hot Licks
"Gypsy Caravan" is a culmination of a US tour by a group of Roma musicians from India, Spain, and Romania

Lots of great ones mentioned already. Two of my favorites-

Pink Floyd "Live at Pompeii" (connects me to my youth).

Fernando Ortega "Live in St. Paul" (connects me to my faith).

If Live at Pompeii counts that would be it.
Otherwise Iron Maiden Live after Death.

I have that VHS tape too. I also have a VHS tape of his Austin City Limits performance from back in the day when PBS aired ACL.

Some of you mentioned ones that I would have said as well, so I will add 2 more.

Gov't Mule - The Deepest End. A great tribute to the late Allan Woody by a who's who of bass players. Also - Matt Abts is one of my favorite drummers.

Opeth - In Live Concert At The Royal Albert Hall. Just a great band, and I'm not a metal guy.

Paul Simons Concert in the Park. Only released on CD, VHS and Laserdisc. Pauls band is an all star cast, as always. He doesnt play with anything less than spectacular. Gadd, surrounded by 4 amazing percussionists, all playing tastefully, without stepping on feet, is so magical! Must've seen it a hundred times!

Just got this one and it's excellent.

Fates Warning / Awaken The Guardian 30th anniversary at Progpower XVII all original members. John Arch is a great vocalist and shows how much he appreciates his audience.

I've listened to this groundbreaking album so many times through the years, never gets old.
