I have three Netflix queues, one of them is exclusively concerts.
Some that I have enjoyed:
Beethoven: Symphony No. 9: Piano Concerto No. 2: Berlin Philharmonic
Diana Krall: Live in Paris
Eagles: Hell Freezes Over
Eric Clapton Unplugged
George Winston: Seasons in Concert: Windham Hill
Joe Satriani: Live in San Francisco
Lang Lang: Live at Carnegie Hall
Mikado: Gilbert & Sullivan: Stratford Festival
Mozart: Don Giovanni
Pink Floyd: Pulse http://www.netflix.com/Movie/Eric_Clapton_Unplugged/7773356?trkid=64596
I have to say I do enjoy watching concerts as much if not more than movies on my set up. I was one of the few that liked the whole DVD A/SACD deal too. Do you have any favorite concerts to watch? I enjoy The Last Waltz, David Gilmour in Concert, Alison Krause and Union Station Live, Jimi at Monterey (from the Monterey Pop Festival Box set) and The Who Live at the Isle of Wight. The Woodstock movie is also classic to check out sometimes. :T
I definitely watch more movies than concerts simply because there are lots of movies vs. concerts. But, I tremendously enjoy David Gilmour in Concert, Roger Waters Live and Eagles Farewell Tour... those are three awesome DVD concerts! If someone told me I had to permanently pick between movies and concerts, I'd pick concerts.
I have couple of DVD concerts, Eagles Hell freezes over, Bela Fleck & the Flecktones Live at the quick , Electric Light Orchestra Zoom, REM perfect square, Stomp out loud, and my favorite 3 Doors Down Away from the sun and I have VH1 Storytellers, Matchbox 20, Sara McLachlan, Natalie Merchant and Rod Stewart.:T
I have to say I am one of those who enjoys concert DVD's over movies. There aren't that many good sounding in my genre's which is a fairly sweeping one. I listen to most except country and classical. Please no flames:bigsmile:, just suggestion/recommendations.
With this being said, I will recommend some very good to excellent quality concert DVD's. I am not rating their performance although I am not recommending a lame performance because it looks/sounds VG to excellent. I either purchased these because I rented them and they were outstanding or I bought them because I really liked the artist and found this particular product was very good to excellent, therefore the recommendation.:jump:
Bela Fleck: Live at the Quick. An odd fusion group of extremely accomplished musicians.
Joe Satriani: Live in San Fransisco:scared: A true contemporary guitar hero playing it all from blues to rock to obscure and amazing technique.
Godsmack: Changes the Movie. Hard Rock originating from the Boston area
Roger Waters In the Flesh. Very clean recording and a great version of Comfortably Numb w/ Doyle Bramhall III. Excellent video quality too!
David Gimore Live. also vg video quality.
Pink Floyd P.U.L.S.E. Great concert with VG sound.
Over all BEST sounding concert dvd I've ever heard is Peter Gabriel's "Still Growing Up/Live and Unwrapped". That is the way a concert should sound, fabulous mix. It looks great too, great video work. The sound of this dvd should be a benchmark, a place all others need to aspire too. While not a bad sounding disc, I wish PULSE from Floyd sounded this great!
Has anybody else seen/heard the "Rush in Rio" concert dvd? I seem to have a problem with this one. No matter what I do, no matter what settings I use on my Yamaha 6200 receiver, Geddy Lee's voice is lost behind the music. You can barely hear him.
I find it hard to believe they could have released this concert dvd with the mix so far off. Seems strange.
