The state of new concert releases is pathetic.Amazon hot new releases in this category used to boast 100 items and its now down to 53 with 65% classical orchestra releases.

I agree 100%. You would think more bands would release concert DVDs.

Weird is I can find more smaller lesser known band concert releases then the more well known bands, maybe the copyright stuff makes it more a hassle then it worth.

I'm wondering if the concert releases don't adversely impact ticket sales to live concerts, and if that may have something to do with it.

Big thumbs up for the new Jeff Beck Live in Tokyo Blu-Ray.

The song selection is outstanding.
The playing is exceptional
The sound is among the best I own.
I haven't watched in my projector yet so I can't comment on the video.

There are some concerts contained in CD packages that may have been overlooked. They are not Blu-Ray and sound quality is usually pretty good. The ones I have picked up are:

Arc Angels: Living In A Dream
Joe Bonnamassa: So, It's Like That
Eric Gales: Live
Stoney Curtis Band: Live
Fleetwood Mac: Live In Boston
Steve Miller Band: Fly Like An Eagle, 30 Anniversary Edition
Drive By Truckers: English Oceans, Deluxe Edition
U2: Under A Blood Red Sky, Deluxe Edition
Joanne Shaw Taylor: Songs From The Road

I'm not really understanding your inclusion of Joe Bonamassa 's album, I'm the utmost fan of his but, while there are many of his concert videos available, that's not one of them. Search Amazon and there are pretty much anything one could want. I just saw him last night in Greenville South Carolina, pretty freaking awesome. ...Look at his Live In London series if you want some really good concert blu rays.

Actually if you bought his cd when it first came out it came with a dvd of a killer concert. Joe has now made that concert dvd available seperately on his website called A New Day Yesterday. I think that was the one the previous poster was talking about. I have everything he has put out and still prefer the original 3 piece Live at Rockpalast show. It's rockin' in your face and the audio/video are stellar.

It has both stereo and 5.1 mixes and the sound quality is pretty good. From a video standpoint it is more like a very high quality home movie than a professionally shot video. It's very watchable because it doesn't try to be tricky or artsy. Just a fine chronicle of a show in front of adoring fans. It's them, the original group, and they're in fine form. The concert last 75 minutes and it contains most of their classic tunes. For us fans, it's a must have.

I was fortunate to see them at the Catalyst in Santa Cruz shortly after the original album came out. They tore it up that night as well.

The audio is okay the video is pretty bad. Part of it has to do that there was a torrential rain storm during the filming plus I don't think they were highly professional film makers. Part of it is filmed at an indoor event if I remember and that part looks a little better. But considering this is about the only DVD concert of the band it is what it is, I'd wish they would do another one that is of better quality.

If you like that type of Austin sound pick this up….

Live at Antones
by Storyville

http://www.cdbaby.com/cd/storyvillerock

This triple disc package (two CDs & DVD) of Austin's premier Rock and Blues band featuring David Grissom and David Holt on guitars, The Double Trouble Rhythm section of Chris Layton & Tommy Shannon and the soulful vocals of Malford Milligan.
