What's your favorite rehearsal or LIVE versions?

So I'm making a CD of excellent renditions of Prince's songs.i need some suggestions though.What is your favorite rehearsal versions or live versions of some songs that you love? So far on the CD I'm making,I havd picked

The 2009 jay leno version of "Old school company". If only the studio version was this good.
The 1994 beautiful experience version of "Shhh"
A 1987 rehearsal version of "if I was your girlfriend"
And a version of "Anna stesia" from the piano and microphone tour.Anymore suggestions? What are some of your favorites? If you were to make a CD of rehearsal/LIVE Versions,which songs would you include?

TrivialPursuit

Canal+ version of "Endorphinmachine".


There is a rehearsal of "Starfish and Coffee" when Boni hits a wrong note right off the bat. Princ says, "nice chord", to which she says, "sorry about that"; then they start again.

Also, there is a version of "DMSR" from 1982 or so, where he starts off with "Hot dogs! Pizza! Root beer! PUSSY! That's a perfect weekend." that is just great.

While there are so many damn overdubs, I do enjoy the CD-single Celebration version of "Days of Wild". But I also love The Beautiful Experience one, too.

"Strange Relationship" from First Avenue 1987 (4 Those Of U On Valium bootleg).

"America" video for that song.

"Girls and Boys" from Wonderboy.

"Mutiny" from Cobo Hall 1986.

"A Love Bizarre" from the Sheila E. VHS in San Francisco.

This experience will cover courtship, sex, commitment, fetishes, loneliness, vindication, love, and hate.

"Guitar" - First choice is the July 18, 2010 Portugal show; 2nd choice is The Tonight Show with Jay Leno
"Take Me With U" - July 18, 2010 Portugal show
"The Love We Make" - Montreaux
"I Like It There" - Conga Room. Worth it just to hear the fellow lose it when Prince plays his request (the fellow is an Orger, BTW!)

He really brought it on The Tonight Show. My favorite was "Come On" in 1998.
