This place doesn't seem to have much time for pop stars...

Just got it last week and enjoyed it thoroughly. A faithful rendition of the original album.

There's also a very interesting interview however only Part 1 of the interview is on the dvd:-(

This is an open forum you can post about any concert DVD you want.
I post about concert DVD releases that I think few people would be interested in, its good to have variety.

I picked this up a couple of weeks ago. Nicely shot video though no Bluray, the audio quality was really good also.
A great deal because you get the concert on CD also.
You can only pick this up on their website. http://bigheadtodd.com/

I was very sad to learn of the passing of Robin Gibb upon my return from a week-long fishing vacation...but for those of you who have enjoyed listening to the Bee Gees at one time or another, I heartily recommend their "One Night Only" DVD concert. All of their best songs, extremely well performed and way above average video and sound for a DVD filmed and recorded in the late 90's...

I agree, after all we may have a lot of lurkers who just love that type of music. I've posted a bit on country type videos and they also didn't really take off but that wouldn't stop me if I had something to add
Artslinger, nice post on Bighead. Brief synopses, photo of album cover, setlist and even a Youtube link
post #8019 of 8898
BHT is a great live band. If you ever get the chance to see them, go for it

Unfortunately, there are one or two regulars who patrol this post and as soon as they see a something posted that doesn't align with their musical taste they go into attack mode. I think a lot of people got sick and tired of the derogatory comments and have gone into lurk mode. I visit to keep an eye out for any new releases but that's it.

Artslinger - Thanks for the BHT post. I'll have to check that out as it looks interesting.

I have a bunch of Country-ish concert DVDs, I should post info about them one of these days.
I stick to mostly Rock or the occasional Blues DVD when I post.

Anyone have the "Burn to Shine" collection ? This is a series of DVDs with a simple formula:

They go to a city, find a house that is to be demolished (usually by burning as practice for fire department), they set up cameras and recording and invite 10 or so local bands who come by throughout the day and play one song live in the house. Then at the end the house is destroyed.

I have the D.C., Seattle, Portland and Chicago versions. I particularly enjoy the Portland and Chicago ones due to the bands. The selection is pretty diverse Prog, Hard Rock, Folk, etc. The sound quality is very good.

Shellac in Chicago

The Shins in Portland

The Pony's in Chicago

Sleater-Kinney in Portland

The Seattle one was a little disapointing to me mostly because of the music style even though it had some big names (Eddie Vedder).

Still in my cart but when I went to order it and a couple other things today I noticed it went up to $19.98 mad.gif Amazon CONSTANTLY does that! I swear they monitor a persons cart and if they detect something has been their for more than a few days the price goes up frown.gif
Oh well, saved some money today, not only did I not purchase my new items but I emptied my cart entirely including this BD....

Anamorphic widescreen (Yes. Shot originally in HD).

Excellent surround mix, preferably DTS surround (DD5.1 only, but excellent use of surrounds).

Great performance (outstanding - Springsteen's music is meant to be heard live. Also, good production value).

Yes that Live in NYC is good, my favorite and I've watched alot of Springsteen concert DVDs is London Calling: Live in Hyde Park [Blu-Ray].

Great music set, top quality Audio and video, and one of the last video concerts with The Big Man.

Here's a freebie.........

DVD's will be dead shorty. Either free stuff or purchased titles will be downloaded on Home Theater Computers directly off the net. The DVD player will become another dinosaur like VHS.
post #8038 of 8898
While I basically agree with your statement I don't agree with your "shortly" time frame. My guess is both DVDs and BDs will hang around for quite some time for those who want to own physical media. DVDs for the majority(including older and more obscure titles) and BDs for those that can tell the difference or care(and I can also see a time where new blockbusters may be only released on BD). I do agree with your shortly in regards to DVD players, they are basically dead now but since BD players can also play DVDs I personally think DVDs will be around for quite some time, of course not to the extent they were in the mid 00s.

BTW is anyone able to get that Metallica link to play any better than 480p? When I try it only says "an error occurred, please try again later"......says this every time I try and play at 720p.
post #8039 of 8898
By shorty, I mean very shortly. Of course the masses will continue to purchase them much like cable TV. For those in the know, they already are going by the way side. There's just way to much good free stuff on the net right now.

It will be awhile longer... I have a home HTPC and you need a lot of TBs to store a fairly large collection of movies.

People will rent and stream, but I don't see any mainstream consumer devices coming with that much storage space that will store HD movie collections.
