If that isn't a pre order I'll eat a stack of Pete Townsend's guitar picks.

I believe the Keane Blu-ray also has this problem. It is true that this type of release is relatively rare as, most Blu-rays are put on the disc as 1080p at 24 frames a second which can be played worldwide on any display or player.

He's probably referring to the US site that is a little behind the UK. It has only a sign-up for notification of availability.

As a big fan of The Who, I'm sort of embarrassed to say I have never seen this concert, which I know is legendary. Can someone tell me a little about the performance? Is it really that great? How does it compare to Kilburn? What about the filming techniques? Is it straight concert or are there interruptions for interviews, etc. Thanks.

Eric Clapton's One More Car, One more Rider is probably my favorite concert DVD.

The sound is simply incredible in the DTS track. If you have a capable receiver and good speakers with a sub, this sound comes to life.

Also, I have watched this DVD probably 100 times and there is a guy that plays the organ, and he does a song towards the end of it. i was always impressed with him. He had so much fun playing the music. Then I find out yesterday that this guy is some kind of legend in his own right..... Billy Preston. Played for something like 35 years.


Funny how this guy just struck me as very good, and well, it turns out it is because he was really good. Great musicians just have something and he had it.

By the way, Clapton has it as well. Dont miss out on this DVD.

Speaking of Billy Preston, I wouldn't mind having The Concert for George on BD. Preston does a great job with "My Sweet Lord."

There are some clips of this on YouTube if you want to check this out.

Yeah that's an amazing DVD. I'd buy that in a second on BD. That live version of Reptile is one of my favorite songs ever. I want to buy a Yacht and just drive around listening to that on repeat for the rest of my life.

Another +1 for this. It would be hard to imagine the sound being any better on blu-ray if it is released, as the DTS track on the DVD is true reference quality. There are a ton of great tracks on it, but I tend to come back to "Change the World" a lot, which has a cool arrangement and in addition to Clapton's awesome performance (and the other band members), I love how the drums sound and how tight the bass is on this DVD.

Yup, certainly one of the best DVD's for AQ and a fantastic show to boot!

Billy Preston ( known as the 5th Beatle) passed away June 2006 due to complications from Diabetes, what a loss to music, he is sadly missed.

+1 on that. That whole concert is excellent. Emotional too!

It was announced for the US before the UK release but then it never came out. I don't know what happened. I was this close to importing it to but I'm glad I waited since it apparently doesn't even work.

I agree!
PCM 5.1 Lossless audio on BoS so vibrant and transparent.
I picked up Best of Soundstage just for Steve Winwood's Dear Mr. Fantasy. A virtuoso performance on that Sea Foam Green Stratocaster!

Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers DTS HD-MA 5.1 another audio and video masterpiece.
You can't go wrong with any of the Soundstage Blu-rays.
Tom Petty is a must!

S550 analog-->Sony TAP-9000ES analog preamp-->Aragon 8008X5-->PSB Stratus Gold and Silver, Infinity SM125 surrounds. Subs-SVS PB2+,16-46PC,

You're still here? Go buy one or two!

Foo Fighters: Live at Wembly is incredible! Not to mention the special guests they have show up unannounced...

I'm definitely getting NIN and The Police after reading this thread..
post #167 of 578
I got these for Christmas...
Divertimenti- DTS Master Audio sounds INCREDIBLE!!! At 24bit/192kHz I don't see how much better surround music can get. For some dumb reason I can't get the other audio tracks to play properly or at all. Dolby TrueHD only plays stereo instead of 5.1 and LPCM doesn't play at all. I don't see how they could sound much different given that they are all 24bit/192kHz. I will try and putz around with my blu-ray player (Panasonic DMP-BD30) and/or pre/pro (Integra DTC-9.8) to try to figure it out but if anyone can help (Kal?) it would be greatly appreciated.
B.B. King-Live- I only listened to a few tracks briefly but this doesn't sound as good as I would have thought for such a small venue. I also didn't listen to it at reference level which changed my opinion about The Police-Certifiable concert. Maybe on my next day off I will give it a whirl.
Live from Abbey Road-Season One- IMO the Dolby TrueHD soundtrack is the way to go with this one. The DTS-HD Master Audio is not as loud or clear as the Dolby TrueHD. This disc may be my new favorite blu-ray concert. Everything sounded VERY natural and real. You could hear every detail right down to Josh Groban breath hitting the microphone. Craig David (Hypnotic), Josh Groban (February song), Nerina Pallot (Idaho) and of course David Gilmour (On and Island) are my favorite tracks. THIS IS A MUST HAVE DISC!!!
Legends: Live at Montreaux- I have not had the opportunity to listen to this one yet but with Eric Clapton, Marcus Miller, David Sanborn and DTS-HD Master Audio it can't be all that bad.
Vivaldi: The Four Seasons- Acoustic Reality Experience- I must have at least 6 or 7 different versions of The Four Seasons ranging from CD to SACD stereo and multi-ch and now this. With DTS-HD Master Audio this is now the ultimate Vivaldi experience. You can hear every bow gliding across the violin with such detail.

Enjoy!!

Just watched this last night....Fantastic! A/V quality are both excelent IMHO. Audio in particular is just awesome (I used the PCM 5.1 track). Nice strong, clean, tight and punchy low end. Very wide soundstage and everything sounds very clear. Vocals are mixed well. The surrounds are used aggressively for a concert mix, but considering the material it seems completely appropriate IMO and I thought it was done very well. The surround use gives the track a 3d type sound design that works very well for the material. Check it out!
post #172 of 578
I picked up the Best of Sound Stage and man they should be releasing all the concerts lol. Fantastic audio and video. I think I am going to start playing this one while guests roll in and I am working the popcorn machine. Something for everyone on here...

So I was trying to watch the Jethro Tull BD on my PS3 and I keep getting an error. It says "Video cannot be played 8000somethingsomething" Has anyone had this experience? How did you resolve it?

I'm expecting delivery of my first Blu-Ray player (an Oppo 83) next week and have some novice questions regarding concert Blu-Rays. - Any chance of getting BRs of the Rolling Stones (other than "Shine a Light", which I understand is pretty sad), Grateful Dead, John Denver, Johnny Cash, Oak Ridge Boys, Alabama, etc. Other folk, C&W or Bluegrass groups? How about Christmas music, e.g., from King's College, Westminster Cathedral, etc.?

I'm also into classical, opera, ballet, etc., but understand that that's in another forum section.

Thanks for any suggestions. If I'm in the wrong place, please tell me where to go.

Stones are coming out with a BD version of the Biggest Bang in June. Then there is Ted Nugent, Iron Maiden and Nighwish also coming out with BDs in the next month or so. I have even seen a listing for a Black Crows BD as well.
post #177 of 578
I think I've said this before, but I really hope that Robert Plant and Alison Krauss had one of their concerts shot in HD during their tour.

Gimme Shelter was one of the titles that were floated about as possible Criterion releases when they started, but we haven't heard anything since.
post #178 of 578
The Biggest Bang BD's only the Austin show not the whole boxed set.

No Blu-ray folk music, country western, bluegrass, or Christmas music?
