Awesome, now I am jealous. The PQ is soft , similar to say the "ROLLING STONES – LADIES & GENTLEMEN 1972", maybe a little better but acceptable to me but it sounds very good & the price is right.

Thanks, I have 3 or 4 other Queen concerts myself but I ordered this one today anyway. I don't want the cd's so the blu-ray alone is in my price range.

Why must 'we' purchase 'celebration day' with CD's?

For me and many others, CD's are now obsolete.......... mad.gif

Sell 'em.

 

Lots of people are likely to want to listen to the music more.

Well, I never bought into CD's. I always thought them to be inferior to Vinyl, the point of my post ^ many vehicles nowadays come with DVD players. lsol

Hear today on Sirius Radio, the entire footage of Hendrix @ Woodstock is going to be released on cinema...........

In Celebration of the 70th anniversary of JIMI HENDRIX's birth, for the first time ever see his unforgettable August 1969 Woodstock concert in select cinemas globally.

This special edition theatrical presentation, under the auspices of Experience Hendrix, L.L.C. has been carefully reassembled from the extensive archive of film footage helmed by Academy Award winning director Michael Wadleigh and his hand picked team of skilled camera operators and support personnel under the auspices of Experience Hendrix, LLC, the Hendrix family owned company. What they captured was a Jimi Hendrix performance unlike any other. Jimi premiered a new band and his extraordinary performance on that August morning included unforgettable renditions of such signature Hendrix songs as 'Voodoo Child (Slight Return)', 'Fire', 'Purple Haze' and 'Foxy Lady' as well as his dramatic interpretation of the 'Star Spangled Banner'.

Jimi's fascinating road to the Woodstock festival is revealed by way of never before seen footage and interviews with his band members such as Billy Cox and Mitch Mitchell, engineer Eddie Kramer and Woodstock's promoter Michael Lang. Directed by Grammy Award winner Bob Smeaton (BEATLES Anthology, Band Of Gypsys, Festival Express), the documentary, which precedes the performance footage, reveals the struggle to stage the legendary festival and secure Hendrix as its headline artist.

Jimi Hendrix Woodstock performance stands as one of the finest ever in rock music history. This presentation features the original 16mm footage digitally restored together with a new 5.1 audio surround mix by legendary engineer Eddie Kramer. Kramer originally recorded the Woodstock festival and also served Jimi Hendrix as his recording engineer throughout his entire career.

Also...........

FYI - Although the above review says the Audio is;

English: DTS-HD Master Audio 5.1 (96kHz, 24-bit)
English: LPCM 2.0 (48kHz, 16-bit)

the disc itself only says DTS-HD 96/24, it does not say 5.1 and just like "Rock Montreal" it is really 4.1. Nothing from the center channel.

I am going to reserve final judgment until I watch the full show, but man Zeppelin is showing their age. frown.gif Those 2 tracks linked above definitely have a tired quality to them from my perspective and have they tuned down to cater to Plants voice? Robert Plant in particular seems to be a token of what he once was. John Paul Jones has fared the best of the group it seems like. I hate saying this as I LOVE the band like many of us do, but not impressed. Hope the full show changes my mind. Having said that, it could be worse........anyone see Jerry Garcia with either the Dead or his own band in 94/95............ eek.gif Some of these shows I saw during these years you felt like you were watching Jerry die slowly in front of you. frown.gif

You expected Plant to sound like in his prime? come on man..40 years ago! (not ragging on you man, just curious if you thought Plant sounded bad even with his voice toned down)

Not at all and that is the point. This show has more "cool" factor than actual musical impressiveness factor when you break it down, at least from what I have seen so far (again, I will reserve full judgement when I see the whole show on blu). I am curious to see the whole show and it is great that it is coming out, but I dont see getting much play out of it after a one and done if it all sounds as tired as this which as you say is inevitable due to getting older. I would much rather throw in Earls Court 1975 for a Zep Fix or some other selections off that DVD set going off what I have seen so far which again could change once the full show is in my hands.

Considering that Plant always smoked like a chimney, and Page was once a junkie, they still sound pretty darned good.

 

What's really amazing is how much hair Plant still has on his head.

No, a friend did. I was living in the Philly area at the time.

I think it was hacked as it is cut short by about 10 to 20 min...... Yeah, it just stops midway through a song. I wish Neil would release the entire concert on Bluray. cool.gif

Rented a couple of nice dvd's - Shut up and play the hits and Pearl Jam 20. LCD I'll buy, available on blu, PQ don't know, looks like they shot it on those little digital pro cams that you use to take portraits.

On to Robert Plant, own it all and like the recent stuff, good AQ and subwofferage that is lacking in the early LP's. There is a perfect pitch machine, and suspect he is using it.

Bluray came though my friends door today from pre-order

Superb gig, absolutely fuc*ing marvelous, you can tell they were all just having fun on stage!

Jason gave it a real hammering on the drums and Jimmy, John and Robert were sublime even given his lower register, and Kashmir.. W.. O ..W

Not many gods left any more
post #8157 of 8894
My pre-order was a joke. Amazon say's I'll get it on the 26th. I've already heard many of the songs on Sirius Radio. Who knows, by the 26th I'll find the whole concert on the Net for free. mad.gif

Glad you enjoyed it. I didn't want to oversell it with my comments from seeing it in the theater. Jason was on top of everything. I'm looking forward to seeing the bonus material now. Mine should be in the post today. I will be playing it again at max volume!!

I pre-ordered months ago and it arrived yesterday! You must have bad karma... wink.gif

I pre-ordered back when it was announced and the BD arrived last Saturday. biggrin.gif
