In terms of recordings, (tape, LD, or DVD) I might have to go with HT and "Rust Never Sleeps", Neil was always just a little bit 'out there', although there are some other great ones. "It's been a long time coming" playing over scenes of the area at the start of "Woodstock" is pretty good, also the boat in the river on the screen behind the stage in Pink Floyd's "Delicate Sound of Thunder" (I hope that is the right name for that the LD). In real life for me, it was any opening number at a "Dead" Concert. You just had to be there, again and again and again...............each show was more thrilling than the one before. The "Views from the Vault" are great but they don't quite capture the thrill in the crowd.
The Ramones used the theme from the "Good, the Bad and the Ugly" to start their shows. Perfect....
Yeah, it makes you wonder who the hell the "good" one is supposed to be. hehe.. sorry.
Actually to badly date myself, the coolest concert opening was when Pink Floyd was doing the dark side tour. It opened with two circling red lights underneath Nick Mason's drum set with the heartbeat making its way around the concert hall with its quadraphonic setup. Sooo cool.
