Default 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:

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 have it taped too, but does anyone have a version of it in colour?

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 , 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.



Long Burn The Fire. Rest In Peace Adam.
