My Favorite 60s Concert Clips

 As salaam alaikum,

These 60s concert clips almost make me wish that I was born around the time my mother was (my mother said that if we were age mates, we would have been friends...yeah) so I could have attended these concerts, even as a preteen.

The first is from the incomparable Otis Redding, who was my age when he died. "Try a Little Tenderness."

The second is by Chico Buarque, a song whose first stanza I often quote, a beautiful song that expresses the frustrations of life, losing control in the course of life, with hints of the frustration of living in a dictatorship, "Roda Viva," or The Wheel of Life.

What's your favorite 60s concert moment? Haha, if you have one.
