What about the Scofield of c. 1970 and the James Earl Jones c. 1980?
Would "A Thousand Acres" count, or the Texas setting adaptation (the
poetry was adapted right off the page) for TV that Patrick Stewart did?

Another recently available Lear is the Central Park (NY Shakespeare
Festival) production from around 1973 with James Earl Jones, directed by
Michael Kahn in the Broadway Theatre Archives series.  It's an actual
taped performance, and very powerful.
