"Allen still sounds vital on these live recordings from 2007, not bad considering he'd have been 69 at the time."

Yes, and it's interesting how some atists from yesteryear seem to perform better in the present day, despite advancing years, than do others from the same/similar period.

Example - The Who - Townsend said recently they were really just a "tribute band" these days, and whilst their live performance showed flair and excellent technicality it couldn't convincingly recreate the old days when they were so much younger and their correspondingly higher energy levels could match the demands of the music so much better. Whereas, Simon & Garfunkle were just as sweet-sounding (if you like that sort of thing) as ever, according to my friend who recently saw them, and also the Who, gig in NZ.

I suspect that the difference lies between a rock-orientated act that thrives on the energy of its young and hungry performers, and an act of the same age-group but featuring music such as jazz or ballads that draw their energies from a less physical realm than the rock creativity.
