Watched Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers - "Live at the Olympic" last night.
Concert released in 2003 in support of "The Last DJ" album.
The PQ while in widescreen mode isn't as good as say the "Soundstage" DVD but the set list is a lot better imo...Where Soundstage tended towards more blues influence tunes, this DVD is straight ahead RnR and the band tears it up on stage. AQ was good to my ears. You have a choice between 2.0 Stereo, 5.1 Dolby and 5.1 DTS. I listened to the DTS mix and liked it.

I'll watch this again soon. I didn't like the Soundstage disc as much as this one.

Yea, ok. Too much of a nut for you to enjoy his singing.

I could never stand Cronin's "singing" (or whatever you might call it), but the music wasn't so bad in the early days.

Cronin's a bit too much of a certified fruitcake for me. He's supposed to be sort of a not-so-nice Prima Donna, too, from some stories I've heard.

Like who really cares.

Jeff Beck - Live At Ronnie Scott's (DVD)

I thought Nickelback: Live from Sturgis was released Dec 2008?

Also, I heard parts have been censored too?

Is it really only a 60 min gig?

Officially released online Mar 10 according to Amazon.

"Zappa plays Zappa"

Wow! What a great performance. I've only watched the 1st disc and I'm really impressed with the musicianship. PQ and AQ are very good.

This is going to be one of my favorite concert performances.

Its a re-release of that concert, not sure but it may have been remastered with new extra content added.

I know I mentioned this before, but "Neil Young - Silver and Gold".

Go buy it or get it whichever way, watch it loud a few times (soft music, slower acoustical music but the quality is MINT)....then come back and say THANKS A LOT SDMFER, GREAT RECOMMENDATION!

It's definitely not Frank, but it's definitely awesome.
Video quality is pretty good.
On the audio side I think the 5.1 is total rubbish.
The 2 channel PCM is outstanding.

I have no idea, but most concert dvds have an option to play only the songs.

BTW that is a trailer and many trailer are produced with cuts of songs and other material.

Anyone here buy or know about the new Phish DVD out today (The Clifford Ball (7 DVD)? I may be up for that many DVD's of them playing music, but I have also seen it listed as containing a Documentary. 6 or 7 discs of documentary is way more than I care to watch. Does anyone know how much of this is music from the show and is not interrupted by interviews? I have seen it at BB for $50 and for $90 at Am. but that is a lot of coin if it is not for some uninterrupted music.

Any reviews?

I reeled in a few more DVD's this weekend:

Guns N Roses live from Tokyo (1992): First off, I see why so many people say that GNR isn't good live, Axle Rose just isn't a good live signer. AQ & PQ were average or below average. Overall, not recommended.

Kiss - Kissology Vol 3 1992-2000: I bought this one because it states that the '92 show was where the Kiss Alive III alive came from. Well the concert performance isn't nearly as good as the CD. The vocals were really undershot for most of this show and they must have boosted them when putting the CD together. This is basically a boxed set and some of the other shows had much better SQ. However, the 4 CD set has them performing basically the same songs over and over. The Kiss unplugged section was pretty cool and original. Disc 4 has 1973 "collectors edition" video of a concert. This is truly "collectors edition" because there is absolutely zero professionalism to it. It appears to be a basement party, or a small dark bar/venue where the recording was done by a guy holding a cheap videocamera in the back row. If you're die hard Kiss, it's pretty cool. Overall I give the DVD a grade of: C.

Norah Jones & the Handsome Band (2004): I really liked this DVD. Norah is awesome live, the band and the PQ/AQ were also excellent. The set list was pretty good. I give it a solid A-/B+.

Alice in Chains unplugged (1996): Everything about this DVD is top notch. AQ is "reference" material IMO. PQ is very good as it's a small well light stage and the camera's are plenty close. The set list is very good. This is well deserving of an A IMO.

The first six dvds cover the six sets of music played over the two nights. Disc seven is the extras.
My local music shop was sold out yesterday, so I've yet to see it.
Having listened to tapes of this event on many occasions over the last twelve or so years, I think it is great Phish.

Thanks, if six out of seven are music with only one disc of extras it should be well worth the money. I doubt it is still in stores here either, I will likely order it online unless I get lucky at BB.

I bought and watched the Gary Moore Live at Montreux 1990. Some really great playing. The three songs with Albert Collins kinda slowed things down a bit. The guy looked stoned out of his mind.
I really enjoyed the set, the guy can just bent the hell out of notes.
The bonus three songs from 1999 all sucked. IMO

I'm really look forward to picking up the above mentioned Rory Gallager video.

FWIW,

Just bought a Joe Cocker Concert DVD that was done in Germany. The VQ is OK. The AQ is in DTS, so it could have been good, but whoever mixed it must have forgotten that we buy these things to hear the singer, not the piano and organ. With a few exceptions, his voice is drowned out by the instruments. Too bad.

Are there any settings that might correct some of this?

Also just got an ELO DVD just to get "Don't Let Me Down". To my surprise the whole DVD is great and very good VQ and AQ (DTS). The babes are outstanding. There's something sexy about a beautiful babe cellist playing rock and roll. They close with a great version of "Roll Over Beethoven".

It has now been released. Can only assume the person who posted prior its release was clarvoyent as he was right with his comments. The sound and picture quality on the BR version is top-notch. KD has a fantastic voice.

Yeah, if your not happy with it, email them and they will take care of things for ya. Beware, many titles are NOT very good quality due to being copies from old VHS tapes. Stay with newer titles and remember, they are boots.
