YouTube has a complete, peak period Go-Go’s concert from 1981

I own the DVD of their 2001 Central Park concert, and I like it a lot.

But I absolutely love this 1981 concert from a Los Angeles high school. It was released on laserdisc and VHS, but not on DVD.

Skip to 2:37 for the beginning of the concert:

Daryl Hall and John Oates have just uploaded high quality versions of their music videos to YouTube

You can see them at

These are much better quality than the VHS recordings that many fans have uploaded over the years.

It’s not a mistake that they uploaded “Jingle Bell Rock” twice – one version has Daryl singing, and the other one has John.

My family got cable with MTV in July 1982. I even remember MTV celebrating its one year anniversary a month later. I though I had seen every Hall and Oates video a huge number of times – but I had no idea that they had videos of songs from their X-Static album. What a pleasant surprise!
