Oops. I forgot about The Complete Monterey Pop Festival. Lot of history behind that festival. Knowing the story behind The Who and Hendrix's one-upmanship of smashing their gear just made it all the better to see Hendrix truly one-up them by lighting his poem laden guitar on fire.

Truly the best Concert Movie.

Can Gimmie Shelter be considered a concert film?

That was more of a documentary, but so were The Kids Are Alright, so fair game.

Then, Gimmie Shelter is the correct answer.

Watching Death's "Live in LA" right now. It was hastily put together due to Chuck's health problems, but it's probably better that it turned out so raw. What an amazing talent he was, and to think that schmucks like those linkin park turds are still walking around... the good truly do die young.
my entry made my girlfriend laugh a few times, the best I can hope for really.

I'd say Whalberg definately qualifies as really good.

I loved the sound of his solos when he went into the upper registers.

The first song that came to mind when I read this was "Empty Words".

"The Kids Are Alright" is tough to beat, mostly because it's such an interesting thing in its own right, but the music's decent as well. Big love to the mega-stoned MC at Monterey, the rest of it (apart from Jimi) is pretty tame.

As far as a film of a concert, Pink Floyd in Pompeii or Stop Making Sense are tough to beat.
