Which one of these live recordings (official, bootleg, etc.) you think is the best one of these eight?

Please choose wisely. wink

To me it's neck and neck between the Kennedy Center and the London Paladium though the latter loses some points because apparently Marvin did some sweetening of the live recording in the studio afterwards.

I know I'm in the minority, but since I'm a 60's Marvin buff, I've always loved "At The Copa". Marvin was already displaying the characteristics of a master showman at the young age of 27! Some of his stage patter catchphrases ("Thank you very kindly ladies & gentlemen"), his signature "OWWW!" scream--Marvin was doing it all way back in the 60's!

Yeah I think he was going "OWWW!" in his 1963 live album but I'm not too sure. I gotta play that one again. But he sure had his trademarks down pat by '66 for sure.
