This is a must have concert in my opinion, but whenever someone says that, you have to be into that kind of music (80's, alternative, rock)

For example, people have told me that the Metallica concert is one of the best, but I am not into that kind of music so it doesnt matter how good the picture or sound is.

As far as Talking Heads, this film is so understated, but at the same time so incredibly creative. The sound is incredible as there various HD mixes to choose from.

I watch this film regularly. I think it is must have.

Growing Up Again?

I'm sure this is not a new one in this thread, but Peter Gabriel's "Growing Up" has made it into Blu-Ray recently, so I guess it deserves another mention.

I also have the "Still Growing Up – Live & Unwrapped". Both in DVD. Does anyone recommend (or doesn't) the upgrade to Blu-Ray? I hate to re-buy films and concerts that I already own, but I do so every now and then with my favorites...

Anyone one with a 4k display seen U2 Innocence yet. It is by far the clearest picture Ive seen for a concert, I dont have a 4k display. its quite amazing, theres not huge theatrics but just a really eye popping picture.

It's a great concert, great visuals and great content. However, I think this was only recorded in 1080i

love it, love it, love it. But most will be very underwhelmed with the video aspect; DVD resolution, non-widescreen, etc.

Im sure its been mentioned here many times, but I just recently got a copy of The Eagles: Farewell I live from Melbourne on BluRay and it is excellent. The SQ and PQ are fantastic. I'm not even that big of an Eagles fan - its kind of crazy how many hits they actually had!

And side note - Joe Walsh is king of odd. That is all..

I have the DVD version (two disks) and am wondering if it would be worth it to upgrade to the BD

I price watched the BD on Amazon before buying and have been very satisfied with upgrading. I don't remember what I gave for it but, I would do it again for sure.

Joe Bonamassa /Beth Hart Live in Amsterdam is one of the best sounding BluRay concerts I've heard! It's easlly as good as the Eagles Melbourne Bluray. If you aren't familiar with Beth hart, do yourself a favor and get this one!~! https://www.amazon.com/Live-Amsterda.../dp/B00I5NKPWC

Thanks for the heads up, I'm a huge Bonamassa fan. This was a no brainer.

Hear me now, Listen to me later....

Diana Krall's Live in Paris and her Live in Rio concert videos are both very, very good.

The Rio concert was shot in high definition, while the Paris concert is an upconvert from SD, but an amazingly good one - they took their time releasing it on Blu-ray, and the effort they took shows.

Both have lossless 5.1 channel soundtracks and the same amazing core group: pianist (Krall herself - she was known as a great pianist before she started singing on her records), guitarist Anthony Wilson, bassist John Clayton, and drummer Jeff Hamilton; the Paris concert has an orchestra backing the core group on a few tunes.

The Paris concert is her standout performance, and if you only want one great jazz concert disk it's the one to have. Her sense of humor is also quite refreshing.

Just watch her seamlessly interpolate other songs into her piano solos, and see how generous she is to her sidemen in giving them long solos; Anthony Wilson is a monster improviser.

PS Stop Making Sense is indeed a classic - a concert for the hyperactive - complete with David Byrne running around and around the risers that hold the drummers and keyboard players at one point. They have a unique sound - they may be the only rock and roll band whose music is not blues-based - but their cover of Take Me To The River late in the concert shows they certainly do know how to play the blues.

Yes, I have it, I would say the video is better than the previous Vegas concert discount but the audio isn't quite as good. Still worth a buy if you are a fan.

Humm...I'll put it on my list, I have Viva!, so I'll have to compare the setlists and see if it's worth it to have two in my collection, especially if the audio isn't as good on this.

Thanks!

There is a lot of overlap. The audio mix is different, has a more live feel.

All the 80's metal cheese is there. They cut to the action, plenty of guitar work, they show the crowd a few times which is awesome to see 1986 metal kids. Just love this concert not that I'm sure it meets your audiophile standards. Anyone have any recommendations for this level of awesome dated cheese? I mean the sound is great, the music is fun but you just can't help but laugh at the headbanging kids and the keyboard solos. Did I say I love this? Help me find more!
If you are a DIO fan, highly recommended to pick up Holy Diver live filmed in London in 2005, 5 years before he passed away.

https://www.amazon.com/Dio-Holy-Dive...dp/B003YKVGL0/

I just watched this last night at reference level and it was remarkable. I have a black velvet pit HT and a JVC RS600 @ 100K+ native and it felt like sitting in the front row. When they did the Heaven and Hell set, it's a chilling and an amazing experience.

highly recommended!
