Best Live video performance or bootleg?
 
What is the quintessential live performance for video and audio?

Mix Master Mike posted a clip from the MTV Glassgow 99 show today, citing how it's almost 20 years old now. I ended up going down the rabbit hole and watching the Glasgow show, which I find I go back to and rewatch the most out of all their shows. This made me wonder what is their quintessential live show on tape or audio? I think if there was anything to capture the beasties in their top form in terms of audio & video quality while showcasing their diverse music styles then the Glasgow show is where it's at.

Maybe the Trenton 92 show for audio.

What do you guys think is their best live recording in terms of Audio and Video?

edit* also does anyone have the full glasgow show in colour? On youtube there just seems to be Super Disco Breakin'

i think it's hard to say quintessential because part of whats great about them is all the phases and periods, so there would have to be one for each period.
I dont know about quintessential but these are the first ones that come to mind for me when i think of performances for each period:

Appreciate the links, but there was a LOT of a fucking blowing whistle in that LTI clip. Haha!

Probably the Awesome I Fuckin Shot That DVD. Although they should have played No Sleep Till Brooklyn ...

I'm sure I have Glasgow on VHS from when it first aired. I just don't have any way to convert it to digital.

I tried so hard to get tickets to that DC show. I had to settle for the Patriot center a year later (which was cool because the Roots opened, but that space is not a cool as the club show.)

I can't find it and I'm not sure if it was at the same Hip Hop Honors as linked above but they did a version of Run DMC's Here We Go (live at the funhouse). Pretty much killed it.

It was a great performance, 2004. RRNN from the same show is also strong.

TT5B was a great live era for the group, perhaps my favourite. The Pageant speaks for itself, but my most watched / listened to shows are probably from the Euro club tour before (Amsterdam, Paris, London). Yauch was so tight.

Co-signing AIFST :D, followed by their last televised performance featuring Roots on fallon (May 2009), then the Letterman AIFST show from February 2006

I have said before that 2004 through 2007 showed the Beastie Boys at their peak performance wise, from Pageant Tour through the Gala Event Tour. Their creative output was clicking on all cylinders.

Any bootlegs or promos from that era are my favorite.

I fucking love that final televised performance on Fallon.

On the subject of bootlegs / unofficial releases (but not so much the live angle)...

Does anyone own either the B-Boys in the Cut 12" or the Say It 12"?

I am curious about the live version of B-Boys on the former (from the 2009 Orange Peel show) and the 'video version' of Say It on the latter - which I presume is just the album version?

I have both. I haven't listened to either for a long time, but I'm pretty sure you are correct regarding Say It. If I get a chance, I'll make a rip of each from my USB turntable and share them somehow! (maybe at the weekend)

Re: Best Live video performance or bootleg?
 
That would be great thanks (y)

Presuming B-Boys is properly recorded live (i.e. not an audience recording) which makes me wonder if the whole show was professionally recorded.

Agreed, but I was talking more full shows or concerts. I still stick with Glasgow '99 as I think that's when they were at their peak while showing off their diversity (punk, Hip-hop, instrumentals, rock).

Live TV performances could be another thread or discussion.

With late night performances, they never seem to miss and always deliver.
I love all the ones everyone has already mentioned.

- Whatcha Want w/ Cypress Hill on Arsenio in '92
- Whatcha Want on Jimmy Fallon
- Sucker MC's on Hip Hop Honours

Also to add to the list
- Ch-Check It Out on Letterman in '04. This hands down one of the best letterman performances too.
- The New Style on Dave Chappelle Show.
- Body Movin' on The Chris Rock Show
- Sure Shot, Ricky's Theme, Heart Attack Man on SNL in '94.
- Intergalactic / 3 MC's 1 DJ on the MVA's
- Right Right, Now Now / Shazam feat. Dougie E. Fresh on Conan in '04

- Honorable mention goes to Time To Get Ill on Joan Rivers and Live at PJ's on Letterman for them not being singles.

Any bootleggers out there reading this, you should make a proper best of TV performance record with some of those tunes.

*Edit here is a youtube playlist. Feel free to add to it if you can.

this is the first beasties live appearance i've ever seen. and the one i've prob seen the most. back to 1987 and i saw that the beasties would be on this random late-night show i've never heard of while scanning the tv guide. I was 14 years old and stayed up to record the 3 performances on the family VCR.

it was joyous. they performed rhymin' and stealin', no sleep till brooklyn, and half of fight for your right until the let the crowd up on stage. they all looked a little drunk in retrospect. but still young and awesome.

i probably watched that VHS tape a zillion times back in the day.
