If the masses continue to purchase them, then they're far from dead, because the masses are the largest purchasing block. It took ten years to phase out VHS when DVD was released, because the masses took their own sweet time to come around. Same with any tech.

Sade: Bring Me Home - Live 2011 (Blu-ray) (2012) has smashed into my top ten performance DVD list. The Bluray disc has just been released and is from her tour last year. While covering her CD release from last year, it also has some of her best stuff from years past...and she does have some fine work. No other jazz artist still working approaches her popularity, and for good reason for my tastes. While there are a few bright lights in smooth jazz, I can't think of anyone else who shares her corner of it. Her sensuality is still going strong these decades later, but is not over-played as so many others flash on stage.

If you have some of her older DVDs, then you may have been sorely disappointed with the video quality even as the audio was good, but this video quality is right there among the best. While the vocals are rightfully the center of the appeal, the other elements — band, arrangements, staging, production — match that quality perfectly. The staging, with multi-dimensional effects, must have been awesome in the truest since of the word at the venue, because the representation on video is barely short of it on a good home theater. The background videos shown as a backdrop on many songs is matched perfectly to what is being put into the audio pickups. This DVD came from a long tour and the perfection repetition brings shows clearly. If your game is spontaneity or the crude/nasty, then this performance may fall short for you, as everything here is very studied, but little else is left out and the execution is dead-on.

From experience bluray quailty movies will eat up HD space very quickly, the cloud would need TBs of storage and then when you wanted to watch a movie you would need to wait for the download.

MP4 Format is good for 4 to 5 titles on one DD disk.

Anyhoo, I've got 2.5 TB's on hand right now....

Maybe the future will bring bluray disks on flash cards?

Jean Michel Jarre - Water for Life

[Mikel VizzualbazzikHck] "Water for Life" was the theme UNESCO Goodwill Ambassador Jean Michel Jarre chose for an exceptional concert among the sand dunes in Merzouga in Morocco on 16 December 2006, organized with the support of the Kingdom of Morocco and held under the auspices of UNESCO.

The Modern Arab Orchestra of Casablanca, the Morocco Philharmonic Orchestra and a number of eminent soloists joined Jean Michel Jarre on stage for this unique concert. It was also one of the highlights of the part of the UN Water for Life Decade (2005-2015) and marked the end of the United Nations International Year of Deserts and Desertification.

I watched the Moody Blues "Lovely to See You" DVD last night after not seeing it for a while. I thought the DTS audio and the video quality were very good.

There is lots of cool drumming.

Cheers,

The Raconteurs: Live at Montreux 2008

I'm not a big white stripes fan but after watching It Might Get Loud and seeing a snippet of this band in there I was interested. The audio/video are excellent. Great performance. I thought the first 5 songs were a little weak but enjoyed every song after that. Interesting band.

Thank you for pointing that one out. I just went to the source, blew it up on my 70" screen, played it through my sound system (in stereo) and it was wonderful, all 2+ hours of it!

One of the greatest rock keyboard players of all time, and a Master of the Hammond B3 (and sometimes C3). RIP, they don't make them like you anymore!

While by no means a concert dvd, Marley is among the finest documentaries, one I would be happy to own. Wish Bob was still around, would like to observe his spiritual progress cool.gif

Better un-order it? -> Region: Region B/2 (Read more about DVD/Blu-ray formats.)

I'll give it a shot, besides, I will probably just rip it to my HTPC using AnyDVD HD. From their website "Removes region codes from Blu-ray media." No worries.
