Some of the best live audio and video recordings of U.S. blues artists in the 60's come from the various American Folk Blues Festival tours. After tracking down all of the audio recordings from the bootleg sites in the 00's I see that practically all of the video recordings are now available on YouTube. Of course it is much better if you BUY the DVDs from Hip-O Records but the Universal Music Group has deleted their webpage so that label might be defunct.
Here are the video links for your listening and dancing pleasure...

P.S. I have a hunch that all of the embedded videos uploaded here might be overtaxing the resources of the MEF, especially when loading pages that might have a dozen or more. So I was not going to embed a video in this post (you can only embed a single video in each post) but this one was too good to pass up...
Okay, here is Magic Sam playing Earl Hooker's guitar in 1969... one of the best live blues boogies ever!
P.P.S. Here is a tutorial showing how to play that on acoustic guitar...
