I was mentioning in another thread how there are so many unreleased concerts, film footage, studio footage and tv broadcasts that can now be found on youtube. Thought it would be cool if everyone wanted to share their finds all in one place.
I'll start with one of my favorite artists, Neil Young (he's on the organ here) at a groovy cliff side in Big Sur.

Tindersticks are one of my favorite bands, they are kinda like The National on cough syrup for anyone whose never heard of them. There are a whole series of black and white videos from MTV, but the audio is a little a head of the video and that sort of shit makes me legitimately mentally distressed. So watch these.

I've never seen a proper Bad Seeds show but I have caught him solo and with Grinderman. Both were extremely good. I wasn't the biggest Grinderman fan when the album came out but seeing them live was a whole other experience. I would love to see them at Sasquatch.

The Bonzo Dog Band were a group from the late sixties who were one of the first to see accomplished musicians/songwriters performing comedic weird conceptual pieces and odd visuals on stage. While many outsider/freak scene bands were forming at this time (ie-the Residents) I would say they were different in terms of their legitimate musical talents. Lots of similarities to bands like They Might Be Giants, Ween, and (to a degree) the Flaming Lips.

I almost forgot, they had a song called "Death Cab For Cutie" (you can see it in the Beatles Magical Mystery Tour) so there's that too. They also had a knack for appearing on Children's TV shows. Things just repeat themselves.

A true musical genius, the godfather of weird and Tom Wait's Swordfish Trombones and after blueprint... Captain Beefheart. A great documentary in 6 parts from the BBC. For those unfamiliar with him make sure you stick it out until part 3, from there the true Beefheart starts to show as we enter into... The Trout Mask Replica.

A video that is soon to be a youtube exclusive no more! I know Springsteen has a lot of hate on him by certain crowds, but I personally love him. The Darkness on the Edge of Town box set comes out this tuesday and I plan to own the fucker that very day. It contains 2 DVD's of live concerts from '78 (plus a documentary on a third disc) as well as a remastered album and two other discs of material from that time period. Yesssssssssss.

Here's a batch of videos from roughly 1960 featuring some of the coolest motherfuckers of the time.
Vince Taylor lets loose on some trippy rockabilly (love the guitar tone)
Sister Rosetta rocks the fuck out. Be sure to watch her get down at 1:24, "Let's do that again!"
Link Wray has been used to soundtrack many a cinematic heroine scene in the pictures. He was a bad bad man who said he wasn't skilled enough to play fast and precise so he invented his own brand of wacko guitar. Unfortunately youtube doesn't even have any footage of just him and his Raymen, some really wild stuff there. Link's the dude with the shades and jacket incase there's any confusion.
