Featuring The Everly Brothers, New Order, Alexander "Skip" Spence and many others. Cheque out this incredible footage of The Who playing Pete Townsend's mini opera "A Quick One While He's Away". It was filmed for a canceled TV spectacular that was put together by the Stones entitled "The Rolling Stones Rock and Roll Circus". The Who's performance was rock solid as they'd just finished a tour while the Stones' put in a lackluster set. Many believe that this was the reason that the programme was shelved until its eventual release in 1996, 28 years after the event.

Frontman Bill Carter puts in a spirited performance which ends with his boat covered in claret. Hope he didn't mash up that lovely whistle!
Featuring Nirvana, Melt-Banana, The Seeds and plenty more besides. Cheque out this footage of Ike & Tina Turner performing Creedence Clearwater Revival's "Proud Mary" on the Beat-Club music show in 1971. Ike's looking like the pimp that he was with his 'fro, 'tache and collar combo while the Ikettes bust out some serious swimming and kung fu inspired dance moves.
Featuring X-Ray Spex, Devo, Suicidal Tendencies and lots more. Check out the greatest music video of all time, Jesse Rae's "Over The Sea" featuring the recently departed funk keyboard wizard Bernie Worrell of Parliament-Funkadelic fame. During the clip he can be seen dressed in his trademark helmet and kilt as he swings his Claymore sword on the Brooklyn bridge in New York and on top of the Scottish highlands.
Featuring The Stranglers, Carla Thomas, Frank Zappa and many others. Cheque out this rare, early footage of Washington DC punk rockers Bad Brains performing "At The Movies" back in 1979 (before they all sprouted dreadlocks). The picture and sound quality is a little rough but stick with it until singer / frontman HR's impressive back-flip at the very end.
