I do enjoy concerts on DVD/ Blu-ray a few of my favorites are:

Dave Matthews and Tim Reynolds: Live at Radio City: The audio and video quality of this is exceptional, if you are a fan of Dave and Tim this is a must own.


James Taylor One Man Band: I have this on DVD and would love to get it on blu-ray should it become available
+1 on the Live @ Radio City, and I'm not really a Dave Mathews fan. Tim's (and Dave's) perfomance is OUTSTANDING!

Thanks for reminding me about the One Man Band, I need to pick that up b-ray or not.

Hi,
I would like to add some of my recommendations to this list. :eek:lddude:

Chris Botti: Live in Boston... Everyone I show it to goes out and purchases a copy.

The Police: Certifiable... Awesome Picture, great sound. I watched it on a 70" Elite t.v. and the contrast was amazing.

Paul Simon & friends: Library of Congress...Lyle Lovett, Alison Krauss and James Taylor all had great performances. Video and audio are great.

The Cowboy Junkies: Trinity Sessions Revisited....Recorded in an old church with no audience. Sound is terrific.

Diana Krall: Live in Paris....Picture is good, sound is great and so is the music.

Daina Krall: Live at the Montreal Jazz Festival....Picture is not as good, the sound is great and so is the music.

Rush: Time Machine....I have been disappointed in with the sound of their other dvd's and Time Machine is a definite improvement.

Just picked up Joe Bonamassa at the Beacon on Bluray. Fantastic concert if you like amazing blues rock! This guy can play. Just about every song has an amazing guitar solo. Highly recommend. Guests include Beth Hart (Janice lives on!), John Hiatt and Paul Rogers. A new favorite for sure.

I recently purchased the Toto Falling in Between Live. I will say it is one of the best sounding Blu-rays I have ever heard. It is mixed very well and the overall sound quality is amazing. The video quality is also very good. It is a great demo to show off your system.

+1 for Falling In Between Live – a great concert video from a great band! I agree that the sound quality is excellent, but the bass is somewhat muddy. And I do wish with concert videos in general that they’d quite trying to mix them in stereo. That’s fine for studio recordings, but it just doesn’t work for a video when you hear the guitar from the left speaker and the player is on the right side of the screen!

Neverthess, the stage lighting and video production for Falling In Between Live is simply outstanding! You can’t underestimate those two in a concert video. I also have Toto’s 25th Anniversary in Amsterdam video, and the stage lighting for that show runs from bland to flat-out garish.

Regards,
Wayne
