The Babys- Run to Mexico- NYC 3-23-79

The Babys took the New York City Bottom Line's stage in March 1979, they had released their strongest effort to date, "Head First", and added up-and-coming American keyboard player Jonathan Cain to the outfit fronted by singer John Waite. Here is a very rare recording of The Babys doing "Run to Mexico".

Rolling Stones- Sympathy for the Devil- London Hyde Park 7-2013

We look back ten years to when the Rolling Stones were marking another anniversary by reprising their legendary London Hyde Park show of Summer 1969... with a remarkable concert performance of "Sympathy for the Devil" from the same locale in July 2013.

Paul McCartney- Back in the USSR- Hollywood 2007

Paul McCartney's performance in Hollywood record store Amoeba Records in 2007 is the stuff of rock legend...We figured McCartney's performance of "Back in the USSR" that day would be an appropriate appetizer for the two-hour special we are featuring here In the Studio with Sir Paul to mark the fifty-fifth anniversary of the "White Album" on which the song originally appeared.

Paul McCartney- Blackbird January 1991

To get you primed for the upcoming Beatles “White Album” double-nickel anniversary interviews with the late George Harrison plus Paul McCartney, here is a live performance of “Blackbird” by Macca from 1991.

Queen- Bohemian Rhapsody/ Killer Queen medley- London 1975

The regal rock of Queen came of age on the stage by this time in 1975 as is evidenced by this stunning performance at London's Odeon Theater with a medley of songs "Black Queen" from Queen II,  "Killer Queen" from their first solid album, 1974's Sheer Heart Attack , and their breakthrough "Bohemian Rhapsody" from Queen's fourth effort, A Night at the Opera.

R.E.M.- Turn You Inside Out- 1989

R.E.M. drummer Bill Berry just slams the snot out of the drums on this 1989 performance of Green's "Turn You Inside Out", appearing on the band's TourFilm   the following year. Michael Stipe, Peter Buck, and Mike Mills join me here In the Studio…

The Who- 5:15- Toronto 12-17-82

In this live concert performance in 1982 of "5:15", originally on "Quadrophenia", the Who thunders through the song like a locomotive, with Kenney Jones on drums and the late John Entwistle on bass.

Jimi Hendrix- Voodoo Child- Berkeley CA 5-30-70 (early show)

To my knowledge, the Jimi Hendrix early show at Berkeley CA on May 30, 1970 has never officially been released, so "Voodoo Child" is a nice appetizer for the 55th anniversary of "Electric Ladyland" coming up.

Genesis- Mama- Knebworth 6-30-90

Here is  Genesis 30 June 1990 performing "Mama" to over 100,000 on one humid, rainy day at that year's annual Knebworth Festival outside London.
