A Concert By the Lake releases this week. Early reviews are pretty good, and it should be a good item for fans of all-star rock concerts.

As good as this looks, I've bought some blu-ray concerts blind only to be disappointed. I found this:http://www.bigpicturebigsound.com/A-...-Blu-ray.shtml
and this:http://www.fulvuedrive-in.com/review...Vision+Blu-ray)

Kinda mixed reviews...

Since Netflix is not carrying this title, a blind buy is the only choice. I'll have mine is a couple days and post back.

"Concert by The Lake" is a blind buy for me, as well. Then again as I have mentioned before I love music on BD and will watch/listen to anything from Abba to ZZ Top.

Now that we have "Stop Making Sense" on BD I'll repeat my request for the wonderful "Concert for George" on BD along with Fleetwood Mac's "The Dance."

Yeah, Ive made some bad blind buy decisions also.
Fantasia: Live In Tokyo is a good disc, but not something I would have bought had I rented it first. Live and learn.

A Concert By The Lake
Well, PQ and AQ are both excellent. Unfortunately I can't say the same for the performances. Clapton really pulls this concert out of the "stinker" classification, but unfortunately he does only about 30 min out of the 2+ hr concert.

This would be a good one to rent if that is possible. Mine is already on eBay.

Thanks for the info...you just saved me some dough.

If I'm not mistaken, I believe Fleetwood Mac's "The Dance" was shot SD.

Fleetwood Mac's The Dance would improve in video quality because it was a very early DVD, and you can see compression artifacts. But soundwise it would benefit leaps and bounds over the Dolby lossy soundtrack. It has a great immersive surround track the would be great in lossless. The newer Mac vids aren't the same without Christine McVie, so this is one I definitely would buy.

I agree, but just curious.....What are the odds that the original analog or PCM recordings still exists? Is it common for studios to keep original recordings for extended periods of time? Roy Orbinson's "Black & White" is a good example of old multi-track PCM recordings being kept for several years (thank goodness, what a great recording either in DTS/DVD or Blu-ray with DTS-HD MA!).

I bought the A Concert By The Lake disc today and it was actually quite good[probably the best part imho was when Ringo Starr did his songs it was a mini Ringo Starr and the All Starr Band show].

I believe The Dance was shot on (SD) video and not film.

I'm quite sure they would keep them all. Why on earth would you think they would throw them away? Now there is a small chance they could be lost or damaged but purposely destroyed or disposed of sounds completely implausible.

I agree, just saying that an encode from the original video would look cleaner. It was a very early DVD.
post #285 of 578
I remember it looking really soft though, even for SD. I had a theory that maybe it was intentional, to hide their wrinkles.
post #286 of 578
The softness of the video on The Dance may have been a limitation of the times. I remember it being used as a demo DVD in the early days at many electronics stores, and many remarked just how sharp it was!

I also agree 100%

The only downside to both titles is in that the pop up menu for track selection takes you out of the concert to the main menu. I like for the pop up menu to appear as you are watching the show. Very minor complaint though

It is really strange that "Breathe" is not being included in the actual concert, especially as it was the opening song at this show. Stranger still, the live performance of the song from this show is being touted as a "bonus" feature on it's own. Anyone buying the single disc dvd isn't going to get the song. Also, the unreleased track "Kingdom" which was used as the opening taped music before the concert began is also not being included on any listed release of this show either. I wonder if Breathe and perhaps Kingdom *will* be included in the body of the concert on the Blu-ray release or will it (Breathe) just be a separate bonus feature as on the 2 disc dvd....

Also on one of the European Amazon.com sites, there's a "ultimate" version of this release that retails for over $200US for pre-order. There are persistent rumors one of the pricier versions will include a digital key to enable downloading of a new EP's worth of songs presumably leftovers from the No Line On The Horizon album including Winter" and Kingdom" among others that were at one time slated to be on the next U2 album called "Songs Of Ascent" which was a possible Spring 2010 release but apparently isn't going to happen.

Strange, but I won't miss it. Don't like the song myself, and comparing it to intros like Zoo Station for Zoo TV, Elevation for the Elevation tour, or even Mofo for POPMART, it seemed anemic in comparison.

people reading the info on the U2 blue ray for June have to be dissappointed with the song list. No new years day, no desire, no angel of harlem; no I will follow
these are some of their best songs

same with the Madonna blu-ray coming out next week; it is missing like 20 of her hits !

U2 made a conscious effort last year to skip a good number of their most overplayed live hits like the ones you mention above (although all of the above except I Will Follow *were* played on a few scattered dates earlier in the tour) as well as Pride, Bad and especially Bullet the Blue Sky. All those songs have been included on most of their numerous home video releases documenting previous tours.

On the other hand, the band brought back deep cuts "The Unforgettable Fire" and "Ultraviolet" which in the case of Ultraviolet, have never appeared on any officially released live home video and a live version of TUF is only previously available on the live Paris dvd included in the deluxe box set of the Joshua Tree album. Not coincidently, those two songs were among the best highlights of the 2009 shows.

That aside, I was at this show and caught most of it from inside the pit (I decided to go out to about the 50 yard line on the field 2/3rds through the show to get the whole "spectacle" of the production). I've seen 24 U2 concerts dating back to 1981 and never missed a tour except for the "Lovetown" tour in '89-'90 because they didn't tour North America. IMO, despite the absolutely incredible stage production, this was U2 weakest tour from a musical standpoint. Much of this has to do with the songs off the "No Line On The Horizon" album simply did not translate well live, plus the overall weak and poorly paced setlist and the band's somewhat lackluster performance.

I *was* looking forward to the upcoming Summer tour but I after the Rose Bowl show, I am waiting to read if substantial changes have been made to the overall set when the tour resumes before committing to another show or two.

I'll definitely pick up this release on Blu-ray, but it's far from the peaks this band is or was capable of.

Bono flubbed the lyrics on "Breathe". Being a long time fan, you know what perfectionists the band are (often to their detriment in my opinion) and so it was pulled from the final version of the DVD.

This would be great, Concert for George is amazing and so deserving of a deluxe BD treatment.

Didn't see anything mentioned about the new NIN offering that is being put together by fans. (Though I could have easily overlooked it). The free downloads are available now, physical BD is coming soon.

Here's the official post from nin.com:

1.5.10: NIN fans collaborate on massive free DVD/Blu-ray of "Lights In The Sky"

Our 2008 Lights In The Sky tour was an ambitious multimedia production on a scale well beyond anything we'd ever attempted before. Everyone involved was extremely proud of how it came together, and we were devastated when, for a variety of reasons, we were unable to capture it professionally for a theatrical or commercial release. As a "plan B" of sorts, early last year we released a massive 405gb free download of raw HD footage captured at three different shows during the tour. The idea was to get the footage out in the wild and see what our notoriously enterprising fans could do with it. There were no rules. No strings attached. This was a gift, and an experiment, and for the past year we've watched it come to life in more ways than we could have ever imagined.

Fans have edited thousands of videos from the footage, assembled their own DVDs and live albums, even held theatrical screenings of their creations. And now, the ambitious and well-organized group known as This One Is On Us have released their massive, highly-anticipated creation, Another Version of the Truth: The Gift.

For 12 months, a core team of dozens of fans and a network of thousands spanning the entire globe pooled their efforts to create this professional-quality 1080p 5.1 concert film, and have released it in every format from Blu-ray and DVD to iPod and YouTube. It combines footage from all three shows and includes DVD menus, bonus footage, a PDF booklet, and more. That something of this scale was produced entirely by fans, on their own time, purely for the sake of giving something back to the community, is absolutely unprecedented. You can read all about the project and find all the download links here, or watch it immediately on YouTube here. Theatrical screenings are already being organized, you can find more info about those here.

This is yet another example of a devoted fanbase and a policy of openness combining to fill in blanks left by old media barriers. The entire NIN camp is absolutely thrilled that treating our fans with respect and nurturing their creativity has led to such an overwhelming outpour of incredible content, and that we now have such a high quality souvenir from our most ambitious tour ever. Or, as Trent simply put it, "Nine Inch Nails fans kick ass."
