Cool

Hi Gents,

This is killing me.

I've been into concert DVDs for ages, but in the last couple years discovered the joy of Lossless Audio (DTS HD Master / Dolby HD) and made the jump to Blu Ray. I moved away from DVDs (I have about 150 concert disks), replaced 2 of my Receivers & Disk players to play these codecs (and even set up a 3rd system in the Basement as I was getting some push back from the Misses.) I vowed not to repurchase DVD concerts I already have or I'll go broke :rolleyes .

Now you say of Orbison Black and White Night in Blu Ray => "Prepare to be blown away. This release is light years better than anything previous. Completely remastered video and audio, restored to the actual concert song list. Most of the concert footage is previously unseen angles and footage. 24/96 TrueHD audio like you've never heard it before."

Grrrrrr....

Regards,


Jim

Well, shame on me I guess, for not seeing this thread earlier..lol..
As a musician of over 35yrs. I love concerts, love everything about them ..except the prices nowadays. D'oh!

Now that some of these are on BR, and have transferred from original film/video, I like the thought of owning them a lot more so than 480p dvds, especially if the (of course) sound/tracks are of good quality.

Thing is, where to find good quality specimens? How to not get ripped off by a BR containing re-hashed DVD quality just re-packaged?

Is there a definitive source of some sort? Help me out here guys... thanks...

Cheers

Actually, I love tube amps..
I play guitars through them.

Unfortunately just when the technology got to a good place the interest in concerts seems to have waned.I have a number of dvd concerts but very few Blu Ray and I doubt we will be seeing many 4K concert Blu Rays.

I have 400 concert DVDs, and maybe 75 on BD. Not for a lack of trying, but concert releases are sadly rare now days.
I remember the good old days when you could rent virtually any concert DVD from Netflix.

There are several good sources out there re Blu Ray concert BR quality.

I’d suggest 3;

The first is this site itself, it has a blu ry concert thread that’s not quite up to date but I’m sure would have some decent reviews of some of your current library.

It can be found at;

any blu-ray concert dvd's


Bluray.com- the main site itself does solid reviews of most all blu ray concerts, but there is also a forum that discusses BR concerts and BR audio as well as other Hi Res stud like SACD. It can be found at;
http://forum.blu-ray.com/forumdisplay.php?f=90

The other site I would recommend is Steve Hoffman forums. Not as specific as BR concert but from time to time you will see postings on new concerts releases and reviews etc. it is found at;
http://forums.stevehoffman.tv/

Anything from the Montreaux Jazz Festival is well-recorded and well-filmed. A few artists that come to mind are Yes, ELP, Santana, Eric Clapton, Alanis Morissette, and ZZ Top.
I can say the same for the Austin City Limits catalogue: Jeff Healey, Albert Collins, John Mayall, Susan Tedeschi, Lynyrd Skynyrd, etc.

Gents,

I did it. I clicked on the link and somehow made it to Amazon.ca (automatic redirect as I'm in Canada) and there it was for less than $20 CAN (less than $15 US). I just couldn't resist.

My son had just signed up for a free month with Amazon Prime, so I handed $20 to him and it was shipped here to the West Coast for free in 2 Days from Ontario (OMG!) . It was even delivered on a Sunday while my wife and I were out with friends to the Car Show and dinner.

I would have played it tonight but it was my Misses Birthday and she's not a fan of loud Rock'n Roll. So hopefully I'll try it tomorrow and it will be as good as the review posted here.

Regards,


Jim

Thanks!
Its your basic audience mix, front weighted. Audio on the whole would get an "average" rating from me.

Thanks! Although I was hoping for better than average, will still give it a go.

Does this thread hold the record for the oldest running thread on avs?
I'd have to say that the Genesis Mama Tour DVD and Three Sides Live blu ray have been recent favorites in heavy rotation in my house! Not only do they sound great, but the kids love them as well.

The kids & I particularly love the house-shaking bass pedals on the 'Cage Medley' and 'Second Home by the Sea.'

Having listened to live stereo audio recordings of the songs for 30 years, the DTS and DD soundtracks add great depth & detail that make it a treat to listen to.

Holy moly! Longest time to quote me to date!

Genesis- people tend to love 'em or hate 'em, more polarized than Washington

...but Genesis was something special live- Seconds Out is regarded as one of the best recorded, engineered and sounding live LP's of all time, by prog and non prog music/rock/fusion lovers alike. Sadly, no commercial complete film/video of the concert, but outstanding 5.1 DTS 24/96 track in the Live Boxset mentioned.

3 Sides Live, Mama Tour, Invisible Touch Wembley, The Way We Walk and 2007 When in Rome are all benchmark live music performances.

Circa 1987 I rented the Mama Tour on HiFi VHS (commercial prerecorded tapes cost $40-$80 in the '80's, or $100~$160 in today's dollars- too rich for a college student!) just to make a Chrome Type II high quality cassette recording of the audio (HiFI VHS has audio quality rivaling or exceeding consumer reel to reel decks at 3.75 or 7.5 ips). Listened to it daily for years going to/from my undergrad classes in Ann Arbor UM.

Recently dug up the Mama Tour cassette tape and played on NOS and refurbed decks- still sounds great

Just a heads up for noobs, a LOT of concert/music performance DVD's have a lossless PCM 2 channel track, usually 16/48, but sometimes 20/48, 24/48 or 24/96.

Just a reminder that BluRays aren't the sole source of lossless audio tracks (multichannel yes, but for 2ch audiophile purists, no). There may actually be cases where the DVD release has a lossless 2ch track, while the BluRay has only lossy 2 ch (along with lossless multichannel), so 2ch purists may prefer the DVD over the BluRay on that basis.

~1.5Mbps DTS and/or 24/96 DTS tracks are no slouch either for multichannel fans of music on many concert DVD's.

Moral of the story- search those bargain bins and thrift stores/yard sales for concert DVD's being cast off for great sound at pennies on the dollar.

Amazon is a great place for used A/V discs (CD/DVD/BD)- they just need to loosen up on that flat $3.99 shipping- maybe $1.99 or less would be great for a lot of discs.

Heck, a lot of CDs and DVDs are $1 or even a penny on Amazon! But the "price floor" is set at $4 even if the disc is $.01. Local thrift stores are $2 or less for CD's and $3 or less for DVD/BD's, often half that with 2 for 1 sales and 50% off coupons.

US Postal Media Mail is about $2, the cost to ship standard CD/DVD/BD most anywhere in the continental US (up to 70lbs worth at once!)

I'm partial to the Kissology DVDs. There are three volumes, with each one containing either three or four discs worth of material including concert footage from all eras of the band. I wish every band would put out such a complete video history.

Not impressed with the sound quality on this one. Very disappointing, actually, especially for a blu-ray.
