    Prime is an interesting concept. Some bands had several primes.
    I'd go with these bands/years off the top of my head (well, many stolen from above lists^):

    beatles '64
    The Who '70
    hendrix '68
    stones '70
    Cream '68
    Janis '69
    Elvis '57
    Dylan '64
    stones '65
    beatles '69

    ^Ha! I forgot The Doors!

    I listen to a lot of classical and jazz these days. I wouldn't know where to start in those categories. And there's the element of time travel to consider - I wouldn't want to go back to the 30's...

    Did a tour with the Who as we were supporting them Moon was still alive and kicking but they were just so so live
    The Live at Leeds album was radically overdubbed, but there again the mics and pa systems of those days just couldn't do the band justice
    Best Live I ever saw was
    Zep, Beatles, Stones,Sinatra,Vanilla Fudge,10cc, Genesis with Hackett and Gabriel, Tom Jones, Thelonius Monk,Oscar Peterson.The Doors,Blind Faith
    Hendrix, Jeff Beck.. Pink Floyd

    Too cool.
    Live at Leeds over-dubbed? Vocals? I'd say an excellent job. I considered that my fav live record of all time. There's a 40th anniversary issue out there - where Live At Leeds is a double album, and they have thrown in a Live At Hull double album as well, from the same tour. The Tommy sets are awesome. Amazing the power that band could project.

    Robert Johnson
