The young James Brown has the crowd hanging on every word and screaming with delight as he begs his lost love to come back to him.

Jeff Buckley - "So Real" (live in Japan) from So Real: Songs of Jeff Buckley\nIt's been more than a decade since Jeff Buckley's death, but performances such as this one ensure that his legacy will remain for years to come. His voice is mournful, powerful and beautiful.

Johnny Cash - "Greystone Chapel" \nfrom At Folsom Prison\nCash's incredible live album closes with this song written by a man who was serving life in Folsom. Cash decided to play the song after hearing it for the first time the night before the concert. It drew an enormous ovation from the prison audience and was then followed by the sounds of the prisoners being told to remain in their seats until being given the instructions to exit out the side door.

Miles Davis - "Move" (live) from \nThe Complete Birth of the Cool\nThe re-release of one of Davis' most important albums contains recordings of Davis and his band performing live on Symphony Sid's radio show. "Move" and other songs on Davis' album are said to have inspired the movement in jazz known as the "cool school"
