Hi,
 
Ok ... enough neg's!
 
How about the BEST Prog videos?
 
I name the ones that Pink Floyd used in DSOTM -- one of which won an Oscar (French Windows) ... and some of the cartoons that were in "The Wall" by Gerald Scarfe ... who had done, some 15 years earlier, cartoons for a couple of other films including a plane race to Paris, with someone going backwards!
 
Other than that, I thought that many of the videos that "The Police" did, were very good, though a bit weird ... and in case you did not notice, they were directed by one of the guys in 10CC!
 
The Michael Jackson videos for THRILLER, of course, need no introduction ... and that album deserves some progressive consideration, even if "neo" ... but what the heck.
 
Other than that ... both of the close your eyes variety ... Tangerine Dream and Klaus Schulze concerts are a treat ... they still can't duplicate that on an album, though TD is now getting better at that!
... none of the hits, none of the time ... you will, eventually, find your own art inside! Try it!

My favorite prog videos are some i've seen on youtube of Le Orme in the early seventies, especially the one featuring their producer Gian Piero Reverberi on piano accompanying the band doing a song from the L'Uomo di Pezza album. Another i love is the one where the band is doing Contrappunti with Frutto Acerbo thrown in. And another where they do the "Rondo" made famous by ELP.
                Heck, sure, they are in black and white and sort of bootleg quality, but they epitomize in film what i really love about prog from that period. They capture the seventies live prog music atmosphere perfectly.
                   Triumvirat were filmed in 1974 doing the Illusions On A Double Dimple album live  in it's entirety, but ABCs In Concert people threw it out, so i will never see it, but imagine that would be my "Holy Grail" prog vid!

...maybe not the BEST prog video (or even prog, more prog-related?), but I like this one because it really gives a rare ringside view of Bob Fripp's amazing guitar technique including his elegant cross-picking and left-hand mechanics! 

My wife at the time pointed out how hokey the dancers are!  (they showed this film clip just before the "Three of a Perfect Pair" show in the famed Minneapolis venue "First Avenue")  It was a glorious gig! 


See 2:47 onwards for some real Fripp fret pyrotechnics!!

^ agree with that one definitely
 
ELP - Fanfare For THe Common Man . Not very interesting admittedly but I do like the fact they have a massive stadium all to themselves.
 
Not so much prog (although they are on PA) is the 90's Indie band Mansun who did a great video for Taxloss . They were allowed to take 25 thousand pounds and throw it from the balcony of a London train station and then filmed people scrambling for the money.Chaos obviously insued. Made the BBC news.
 
Both videos are easy to find on the net.

I like that a lot although Kate's video for Moments Of Pleasure is the most beautifull I have seen. I picked up a KB video collection on DVD some years ago (unofficial but then there is still no official releases out there and I would happily splash out on one of there was grrrrr!) and can happily watch it all the way through without skipping. A brilliant inventive artist in every respect.

This is a live version of Henry Cow's Living in the Heart of the Beast.
When I first came across this, it was a reason for me to explore the music of Henry Cow.
They're one of my favorites now..

Mike Oldfield - Montreux

Present - Barbaro

Magma - Mythes & Legends I & II

 
Those get a significant amount of rewatching in my house.
 
The new Guapo release has a complete performance of 5 Suns in black & white from Nearfest that is monstrously good.

The Montreux DVD is a lot of fun for sure. I have most Oldfield DVD's and the one I watch a lot is TB3 at Horseguards parade although Exposed is superb as well with Maddy ,Pierre and a large collection of singers and musicians at Wembley Arena 1979.
