    Friends of mine and I, who simply looove music and especially music history, have been finding that YouTube is a veritable treasure trove of archive footage. On it you can find old and rare clips featuring the greatest musicians ever to have graced the planet. So let's share the best findings with each other here on CFC!

    ----------------

    Some guidance and rules to help the thread work well, if you don't mind.

    ~ You can use the search function in the top right to find the clips.

    ~ Please only post footage that features the artist in person and / or their original music video. (There are loads of self shot clips of random idiots bugging out to some music in their bedroom. There are also many amateurish clips from people who have made their own music videos. Those are boring and crappy and don't show/teach us anything about the artists in question.)

    To help users of the thread and to avoid random, mysterious links being posted, please mention the:

    ~ Genre
    ~ Artist

    And if possible:

    ~ Length of the clip
    ~ Some background info for our further education and appreciation.

    ----------------

    Let's do this!

    ----------------

    LIST OF CLIPS POSTED SO FAR, BY GENRE AND ARTIST.

    Billie Holiday, Lester Young, Hawkins, Webster, Mulligan, and more in one of the greatest jazz get togethers on video ever: Fine and mellow

    Lady Day's Strange Fruit

    John Lee Hooker with his trademark Boom Boom while he was still a young 'un

    John Lee Hooker's Tupelo

    That covers the basic jazz and blues, here's an early Stones show from the same era - Little Red Rooster - the roots are plain as day.

    Ram, if you like Chuck, here's another goodie Sweet Li'l Sixteen from Jazz on a Summer's Day.

    A fantastic idea for a thread, Rambuchan, and it's going to be hard to beat those opening videos. Check out that second Little Richard one where everyone seems to be enjoying themselves far more than they usually are in music videos of this period - and is that really Bill Haley sitting in the audience?

    The Tupelo clip in the previous post is where it's at, though.

    Clearly we need a bit more Blues.

    Here are some clips of the legendary Howlin' Wolf. The Wolf (real name Chester Burnett) was a country blues star in the 1930s, when he played with figures such as Sonny Boy Williamson and Robert Johnson. Then in the 1940s he was a giant on the music scene in Memphis, where put together an electric band and was first recorded by Sam Phillips. When he first heard Wolf sing, Phillips said "This is where the soul of man never dies," and he always considered Wolf his greatest find - even though he also discovered Elvis! Howlin' Wolf then moved to Chicago and became one of the titans of post-war electric blues, uneasily sharing his crown with Muddy Waters. Waters was the better musician, but no-one ever had a voice quite like Howlin' Wolf. He was a massive influence on the Rolling Stones and other rock artists of that era. Little Red Rooster was his song originally, of course. The man was a force.

    For all that, there are precious few video clips of him in action. Here are some of the best ones, all from the mid-60s.

    Meet Me In The Bottom - Howlin' Wolf

    May I Have A Talk With You - Howlin' Wolf

    How Many More Years? - Howlin' Wolf

    Here's Ray Charles with a hugely influential track, for blues, for funk, for soul, for gospel, for rock'n'roll, for rhythm and blues and soooo much more:

    What'd I Say

    The background story is great too....

    And about the man himself...

    D.Ö.F - Codo

    Most of you will probably scream for mercy when seeing this clip, but it does really remind me of my childhood which in turn makes me like this song a lot :) It was part of a pop movement in germany usually called "Neue Deutsche Welle" (new german wave). Especially the line "und ich düse, düse, düse, düse im Sauseschritt" is something every german speaking person has probably heard at some time or other. Also, please note the atrociously cheap done video :lol:

    the bandname D.Ö.F. supposedly stands for Deutsch Österreichisches Feingefühl (german-austrian sensitiveness) :lol:

    Supposedly, there's also a yiddish version of this song called Cojdoj, the flying Schissel, but I was unable to find that :ack:

    Linky: Codo

    Good find there Kaeptn!

    :cooool: :lol:

    Could you do a translation of 'düse im Sauseschritt'? Had a quick peek at leo and it seems that düsen and sausen means exactly the same...

    hard to translate, especially since I've never heard the word Sauseschritt being used except in this song. You're right düsen and sausen is pretty much the same. Düse is the german word for jet engine, so düse means something like "to jet". it's usually used in colloquial german to signify hurrying, walking fast, etc. sausen means 'to whiz'. So it could be translated into "and I jet with whizzing steps" :crazyeye:

    Damn fine Elvis track back there. But you need to listen to Hound Dog by the original artist - Big Mama Thornton. Yes, that's Buddy Guy on guitar. Check out the way Thornton saunters in with her handbag - and her snide message for Elvis at the end!

    While we're on the subject of rock and roll influences, hold your nose for Screamin' Jay Hawkins. Never in the history of music has any man been given such a wonderful voice and done his level best to twist it out of all recognition. Jay was one of the real rock and roll pioneers, but he didn't get much coverage because he was considered too scary (I Put A Spell On You sold millions in 1956, but it didn't make the charts because it was banned from radio playlists). He remains, as far as I know, the only blues singer to be also a great opera singer - he originally wanted to sing opera, but this was impossible for a black performer in the 1950s. Amazingly, he got his break as a piano player for Fats Domino - even though Domino was a better pianist than Jay, and Jay was a far better singer than Domino!

    It's a shame the only clips of Jay that are available are fairly recent (he died only recently), because he was doing this in the 1950s too - rising out of flaming coffins, shooting jets of fire from his hands, throwing rubber bands at the audience while singing about worms, and getting arrested for nudity. And they thought Elvis was dangerous! This is where goth horror rock begins - from Marylin Manson to Alice Cooper and all those who have come since. In his heyday he must have been a sight to behold.

    I Put A Spell On You - Screamin' Jay Hawkins

    Since we were talking about Blues earlier, here is one of the masters:
    Albert King(live!)

    Everyone should listen to that Albert King track. That's guitar - as they say, it's the notes that he doesn't play that make it.

    May as well make it the complete set. Here's the most famous and influential post-war blues singer: Muddy Waters, the man who should need no introduction to anyone here.

    Here he is in his raw 1960 prime. Apparently after performances like this he would have to spend the next day lying in a dark room with a damp cloth on his forehead:

    Got My Mojo Working - Muddy Waters

    And here he is in his 1970s majesty:

    Mannish Boy - Muddy Waters

    Great idea!

    I'd like to share this Hip Hoppy, Latin Samba funky colored kinda clip of Sergio Mendes featuring Will I Am and Erykah Badu

    That Heat

    And one of the greatest things I found on Youtube; Jacques Brel singing Le Port D'Amsterdam. His passion and energy are amazing.
