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:

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

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 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.)
