I like time machine. It has less croud noise that the other two. Puts you more front and center. Some have said Geddy's voice if off, it sounds fine to me.

Honestly, I have not been impressed with any of the live Rush releases on DVD or blu ray as far as the audio/mix goes

Just ordered Eddie Vedder Water on the Road.......has anyone seen this? If so, how is it and how is the A/V?

Thanks

I bought this recently. I like older Chili Pepper's and didn't check the song mix on this. I hardly recognize any of the songs. Didn't really like it for that reason. I flipped through the songs without listening to the whole thing but the visuals looked OK and it did seem to be a true concert (meaning there were few cuts or other material inserted between songs which is how I like it.

I can make a longer list of the DVDs I listen to over and over but I'll give two that have impressed me and have so impressed my friends I show them to that we may be planning to go out but once they are put on we sit messmerized.

1) White Stripes - Under Blackpool Lights

2) Rasputina - Great American Gingerbread (bonus DVD)

Both of these are 4:3 aspect and the sound technicalities are good but not stellar (definately good enough though). But the performances and overall production put you in the action and take over your brain. The White Stipes I play 5.1 but the Rasputina sounds best to me in 7 Channel Stereo. Both these releases are pretty cheap so there is little risk in trying them. I pretty much wore out the White Stripes (seen a few hundred times by now), but I'm still in the handful of viewings of the Rasputina and I'm trying to pace myself because I never want to get tired of watching it.

I like a variety of music (rock, jazz, reggae, punk, funk, etc) and am always looking for the immersive, concert videos that make you feel you are right there. I'm glad I discovered this thread I must now read the suggestions...

The White Stripes I used to take to Home Theatre stores as a demo and it would innevitably have the whole sales staff and patrons gathered around watching.

Ian Gillan is going to pop a vein trying to hit those high notes. It's time they retire.

On an another note: This rocks!


Thanks VM, I may have to check that out. I tend to like DT better with instrumentals.

The "Modern Drummer Festival 2003" from Hudson Music has a DT performance that is excellent

This followed a set of Mike Portnoy playing Beatles tunes.

The DVD also has some other amazing performances

The sound is excellent.

Considering they're probably totally sick of seeing and hearing the same old, boring, adult contemporary DVD hour after hour, day after day, week after week, for 2 years, that wouldn't be that surprising.

The Sigur Ros blu-ray is pretty compelling.

Most of the time, I skip updates to this thread even though I've been subscribed to it for years. I like my dinosaur rock as much as the next 40/50/60 something, but yikes. It's gotten a little more interesting of late, thankfully.

Considering it was all shot on Super8mm film, it really isn't surprising. It gets people's attention, for sure.

This title will be released on February 21, 2012.
$13.99


I've been waiting for this one........



Run Time: 204 minutes


http://www.amazon.com/Santana-Live-M...803741&sr=1-24
post #7696 of 8898
Nice price($13.99) and really a packed BD(204 minutes) I may just pick this up the next time I place a Amazon order. I believe I saw this on PBS a short while back and it was good
post #7697 of 8898
In my (pre-order) cart. Can't go wrong at that price. I'll combine this with the new Peter Gabriel concert BD to get free shipping. Of course with my luck the PG BD will go up by $10 bucks at that time.
post #7698 of 8898
So few new titles these days.Seems like most releases are Blu ray versions of old sd dvd concerts I already own.Of course Im jumping on the Santana release since I cant imagine many more new concert dvds will get released.Nice to have a new concert for a change.

I can't believe more venues aren't recording shows with video and good sound. I think if you keep it simple it isn't that technical or expensive. I go out to clubs a fair bit and often see young bands that put on a killer show and wish I could take it or similar home. I buy a lot of what is out there and try to take risks on people I had never heard of.

The Dresden Dolls have 2 live DVDs - this is a War Pigs cover at The Paradise in Boston. The sound is very good on this.

The Knitting Factory does DVDs. Here's the start of the first song from the Rasputina I mentioned

We really enjoy the Bad Brains, Live at CBGB from the 80's but the sound is not so stellar. But, then again - its Bad Brains! The opening number from the DVD

I really enjoy the Violent Femmes DVD. Its mediocre on the sound but they are playing in a place we used to sneak into in high school so it's nostalgic for me. Girl Trouble

I've got all the standards that are still great (Zep, Who, etc) but trying to name stuff that maybe people don't have.

I may have to pick up that Santana on Blu-Ray. I don't yet have any concerts on Blu-Ray I think. When I had the choice between DVD and Blu-Ray I picked DVD to stay compatible.

If you're referring to the Peter Gabriel New Blood BD, I just got and watched about 2/3 of it today. So far I really enjoy it as it brings a fresh look at a lot of older excellent songs.

Not sure what your tastes are but you might want to look at some of paul wellers dvds.Check him out on Youtube.Best blu ray for sound is jeff beck live at ronnie Scotts.
post #7702 of 8898
Beck? That guy is still alive?

Next will be another Rush post........ lol

Thanks to whoever recommended John Butler Trio's "Live at Red Rocks" DVD. I wasn't familiar with their music, but I've enjoyed watching this one and listening to the two CD's that are included.

So last night I asked my (20 year-old) daughter if she knew of them, and of course she's already seen them live...

I like a variety musically. What I care most about in the HT concert is the performance and audio (needs to be good enough). The video I like to be simple and less distracting but closeups on the finger work are cool. BAsically the closer it is to a straight concert without cuts and fancy swooping cameras the better. I remember Weller from the Who DVD.

One DVD I should mention that I used to watch a lot but I think I misplaced it is King Crimson - Deja Vroom

The performance and audio is excellent. I thought this DVD represented the future because it has options that use some advanced DVD capability. One is the ability to control the camera angles on some songs (e.g. focus in on the drummer or basist). When you switch to a particular musician, you hear that musician's monitor in the center speaker so it's like focussing visually as well as sonically. There are some other features too that I forget. But, I haven't seen too many others do this. Probably complicates the production.

It's a must have, especially if you like King Crimson.

any thoughts on Adele's new blu ray? Thinking about buying it but not sure if it'll be worth it.

I thought it was very good. Sound quality is excellent. Picture quality is very good. I just didn't like all the fast camera cuts.
