Nobody in his right mind explores a remarkable collection of videos like this and then spends almost five minutes watching Player recite a note-for-note rendition of Baby Come Back.

Something happened when I turned 45 and I can't explain it.

I thought about posting this a couple of days ago, but I couldn't bring myself to put the hours it would take to do a good FPP on it.

Music Vault also has a kickass youtube channel now. I've been watching/listening for days. I hope the IT dorks don't shut it off. (Or the Lawyers.)

Doing Playlists of full concerts, and sometimes just one video is the whole concert
Full Wilco Concert from '96

(For some reason the Playlists often include a few removed/private videos)
Blondie '79
Talking Heads '80
NIN from Woodstock '94

Wow. Many thanks for this!

What "hours"? It probably took unliteral five minutes to do this post, and it is a perfect post. I really, really hate the idea that "good" posts have to involve hours of preparation and dozens of links; it drives people away from posting and makes for wallpaper posts that I tend to skip. All a post needs is a good link, and this is a classic example.

I like this style too. I didn't mean to say unliteral's wasn't good.

I just couldn't bring myself to do it without digging into it deeper and deeper. And editorializing! And that would have cost me hours. (And I was trying really hard to pretend to be working. It's been a long week
