Top Youtube Live performances !!

Posted (edited)

Following on from the recent Soul Source "Kings of Soul" video thread, how about a Soul Source "Top Live Performance" thread? Perhaps a Soul Source Members top 10 or 20?

I came across this on Youtube and thought it would be worth passing on. Then thought, other members must have their favorites..

Anyway, here your go - Billy Preston backed by Ray Charles doing Agent Double O Soul..LOVE IT!

Also, what a contrast to Billy. Hopefully lots more suggestions to come.👍

ahhh just seen the tag , for it to work you do need to make sure its like this...

@Bo Diddley

then it will notify the member etc etc

 

A bit of the lack of response here may be due to the title?

As it currently reads like it's a one off video post, maybe something like "Top Youtube Live Performances" as a start point may get things going?

Hi Mike,

Thanks for picking this up. I originally posted on Sunday with a very similar title to the one you suggested. But there was very little reaction. So, I changed it yesterday and added a new comment to raise the profile.👍

I'll change it back to see what happens. 

 

Cheers

Thanks everyone, these are fantastic.

You'd have to rely on pot luck to stumble across them. Imagine if it was a TV program with this compilation!

morning all

regarding video posts

2 or 3 straight after each other just doesn't work that well on here

better if  try posting one at a time, with a decent gap in between 

doing so will help keep things flowing and may encourage more discussion, posts etc etc

thanks

This has to be my fave vid on youtube. I watch and listen to this at least 5 times a week and it kills me everytime.

Perhaps I should have know, but I just didn't expect Sister R to pick up a guitar! Great stuff.

Also, I've watched the Penn and Oldham vid lots in the past but had forgotten about it. Thanks for the reminder (Dan with the dungarees!)

If you are not aware of these videos then you are missing out on some really great live music.

Live From Daryl's House on youtube is awesome.
