Sly & the Family Stone – “Everyday People” and “Dance to the Music” (Live TV)

I’m not sure what show this is from or the date on it – but I’m assuming probably 1969 or 1970…?

Frank Sinatra – “Send in the Clowns” (Live @ Carnegie Hall – 1980)

August 12, 2008 at 8:22 pm (Frank Sinatra, Music)

I used to hate this song until I heard Sinatra sing it. The way he does it is so sad & beautiful. Probably the best version he did was from his 1973 TV special Ol’ Blues is Back. This one is great too, due to the Brazilian-styled acoustic guitar backing by Tommy Mottola.

Eddie Van Halen – “Guitar Solo” (Live – 1986)

August 12, 2008 at 8:13 pm (Music, Van Halen)

Taken from Van Halen’s Live Without a Net live video from 1986, right after Sammy Hagar joined the band. Here’s EVH alone, performing bits of “Cathedral,” “Eruption” and the intro to “Mean Streets.” Alex & Mike join him towards the end….video cuts off at that point.

Madhouse – “7” (1987)

August 12, 2008 at 1:28 pm (Music, Prince)

This is for all intents & purposes a jazz-funk album by Prince – with Eric Leeds playing sax and Prince playing everything else. Extremely rare these days. Originally came out on Paisley Park Records. Not much chance of it ever being re-released, which is a huge shame. Great stuff.
