That will be interesting to see if there will be 4K concert releases down the road, I would think yes. The Muse concert in Rome was shot in 4K, perhaps it will released in that someday. I notice Dolby Atmos sound tracks starting to creep into concert releases, Roger Water's The Wall and the just released Imagine Dragons Smoke + Mirrors come to mind.

U2 Innocence just came out on Blu, supposed to have it tomorrow. I was surprised it wasnt in Atmos being that the sound system is suspended. Ill let you know how it sounds.

I have to see this is a good buy if your a fan. The video was such that you felt like you were there, and the audio was just as good. Roger Waters The Wall Blu is somewhat suspect at times whether its live or not. This not the case and it sounds good, I judge everything on the top end to Through the Never and this was good just not that good. Some ramblings by Bono, which normally I dislike but considering the circumstances Im able to look past it. Eagles Of Death Metal do 2 songs at the end which I thought was pretty cool of U2 to do.

Id buy again

I'm not saying that the technology isn't any good!!! All I'm saying is that no matter the technology, if it isn't mixed/produced well, it doesn't matter what technology is used to reproduce it. "Garbage in - Garbage out Rule"

I still have some VHS and LD concerts that I watch from time to time because they have not and probably never will, see the light of day on another format.


Like 'Delicate Sound of Thunder.'

I realize this is a very old post, but ran across it during a search. Does anyone have a recommendation for a DVD or Blu-Ray of Pink Floyd's Delicate Sound of Thunder concert (audio + video)?

A number of years ago I bought a "DVD" of this on ebay and was very disappointed. At that time I did not realize this concert had never been officially released on DVD, at least in the US, and what I had purchased was a poor quality copy although in a format supported by my current system.

Had a trigger event last weekend with old friends that resurrected memories of how great we all thought this concert was, and I am wondering if there is any DVD / Blu-Ray version that is worth watching.

Thanks
Bruce

ive bought 2 items from this seller with no issues. This was my first Floyd concert so Im with you. Id ask about the transfer quality, this was widely bootlegged and was never officially released on anything other than vhs ,confirm it will work with your player. Im so over the top about Waters The Wall nothing else would even slightly amuse me. My thoughts its probably meh, but you cant put a price on nostalgia GL

Thank you, I will check out that seller. Delicate Sound of Thunder was also released on Laser Disc.

I own the DVD of Roger Waters The Wall and it is excellent, as is the remastered Pulse on DVD.

But I have a special affection for the Delicate Sound of Thunder.

The DVD arrived yesterday, very pleased with their service. Its a copy from Laser Disc which I was glad to see. As long as you have realistic expectations then I think it is good and worth buying.

It is not going to compare to the video quality of Pulse remastered on DVD or the Roger Waters DVD, and I don't think the audio quality is as good, but based on what I can remember from watching the Laser Disc over two decades ago it is comparable to that. I definitely enjoyed reliving the past, but if they ever remaster Delicate Sound of Thunder and release it on DVD / Blu-Ray I would buy that in a heartbeat.

I've been perusing the catalog at Maximum Sound and I like the way they assign each performance a quality rating. There is another Laser Disc concert that I used to watch a lot, the Eurythmics in concert circa late 1980s, that I have always wanted to get on DVD. Maximum Sound sells Eurythmics Live in Sydney Australia 2/14/87 DVD . I just looked at a snippet of that concert on youtube- it looks like the one I remember from Laser Disc and song listing looks the same so I am going to give that a try.

Ill give it a whirl. The first concert I attended was Blue Oyster Cult at Hollywood Sportatorium in S Fla. I was blown away while looking through this site that there was actually a recording from there. This place was torn down decades ago, it was a dump when I saw BOC there in 81' along with many other groups so it definitely brought back memories even though the recording is meh.

It is suprising what they do have available on there, definitely cool stuff.

Ive only bought a couple from them and it wasnt for the recording or audio. I would guess some of the newer ones might be ok but dont expect to much. The age of what they have is what I found appealing, reminds me of The Midnight Special show in the 70's. I bought, BOC, Rainbow, Cheap Trick, and Pink Floyd DSOT(just ordered this one) Unless it has some appeal other than audio or video quality I would pass. Then again theyre mostly $12

I purchased 3 Blu Rays Lately and would like to recommend..

U2 Paris - I am a huge U2 fan so I am biased. However during this tour, I did not really like this concert when I saw it live. I felt Bono and the band lacked energy and were going through the motions only. This Paris concert feels like all the other concerts were practice sessions for this Paris concert. Sound is OK, seems to lack Bass . It was shot in 1080i. A really stunning concert

Imagine Dragons Smoke & Mirrors - A bit on the "pop" side, but not so much that its bubble gum-y. 1080p transfer. Great sound and video. There is a lot of deep bass in their drums and synthesizers, so it really sounded great in my opinion. I was surprised that I knew more of their songs than I thought I did and the songs I did not know were enjoyable.

Roger Waters The Wall- This was the biggest surprise of my life. I am not a Pink Floyd Fan. I grew up on alternative New Wave and thought Pink FLoyd was for loadies and metal heads. Boy was I wrong. This is highly intelligent music. Actually very mellow with complex, textural instrumental portions. The concert is like nothing I have seen before. It is so incredibly visual. Withing the first few minutes with the airplane and fireworks, I was exhausted!!! The artistic nature of this concert is unreal. The music is great, This is a total immersion concert and the best thing about it is I had no idea and actually bought this for my wife and even though I am not a Floyd Fan per se, this is probably the best concert I own on Blu Ray

@Diamond Dog , totally agree with you on the U2 concert. I was impressed with the video quality for sure. Im a fan of ID and was considering picking up Smoke and Mirrors, you just pushed me over the edge.

The Wall is going to be reigning champ for video for some time to come, and the audio is right there. Glad you liked it and dare say you may be a fan...maybe NIN Beside you in Time is good if you dont have it.

For me, reference is Metallica Through the Never, audio doesnt get better. You want kick drums, Lars has that covered, seriously well done recording. My wife now knows the bass line from Orion now and can tell what Im jamming before she opens the garage door.

52 days and counting until KISS

On the Pink Floyd Delicate Sound of Thunder DVD I bought from Maximum Sound it says Audio: LPCM. Its a transfer from Laser Disc to DVD. I still have my Laser Discs but they are packed away in storage and not easily accessible so I cannot say what the LD audio format was.

IIRC Laser Discs at one point were offering surround sound with Dolby AC3 where you needed an RF demodulator to extract the surround channels. I had that in my set up but cannot remember which Laser Discs came in AC3.

It seems this company is actually the last chance to get interesting concerts on dvd since the market has dried up except for a few big name acts that still put them out.

Following up on Eurythmics Live, I received the DVD I ordered from Maximum Sound. It did not say copy of Laser Disc like Pink Floyd's DSOT did and I would say the video and audio quality is not as good as the Pink Floyd DVD. I like Maximum Sound, both their product line and service, but I assume the source material was not as good for the Eurythmics concert.

Additional follow up, my wife organized us doing a major clean out of our now former storage units and I brought my laser discs back to the house. I then set up an older 2 channel A/V system in a secondary room, hooked up one of my two laser disc players, put in the Eurythmics Live LD, and voila! it played. For the LD, video quality is fairly good and audio quality is quite good. I was very pleased to say the least.

I have a few other older concerts / music videos that I look forward to watching and listening to on my Retro system.

I realize this is a bit off topic but anyone have any suggestions for ballet geared for children? Our local dance school asked if we had any that we might show at a movie night.
