The 25th anniversary Rock & Roll Hall of Fame Concerts Blu-ray
is Fantastic - watched it twice now
The fidelity in the audio is Stellar - maybe the best audio disc available
any format - just pristine
Can't speak highly enough for this disc and the performances - everybody seemed to be having just wicked time on stage
Video top notch also
Reference disc - audio/video and performances

Has anyone seen Kenny Chesney's summer concert on blu? Kmart has it for $15.00 and was wondering if it is a worthy purcase or not.

Agreed 100%. I can't get enough of this one!

I bought it this past fall and I really enjoyed it. It is one of the disks I pop in when friends stop by to see the theater. Pleasantly surprised.

"Pat just completed shooting the Orchestrion show for a new HD-DVD that will be available on Blu-ray and 3D formats. The show is in the process of being mixed and put together with a target release date early next year."

Cant wait for this one. I wanted to go see it live, but couldnt rearrange my schedule. It should be good. Its an absolutely amazing project and mind-boggling to think of what went into it.

Blu-ray? Yay! 3D? Say what? I worry. There have been more than one PMG DVD severely compromised by letting extraneous video effects get in the way of a faithful document of the performance.

I saw two different Orchestrion performances from really good seats both times (Keswick in Glenside PA and BergenPAC in NJ). There is a lot to see, and the video needs to focus equally on Pat's playing and on the operation of the Orchestrion itself, in detail, close-up. I don't see how 3D is going to really help with that, and I do see how it could hurt if the best possible 2D shot is sacrificed for better 3D effect.

All of that being said, I will jump all over this. Before Orchestrion I didn't think my regard for Metheny as a musician could be any higher, but these performances reveal the depths of his genius. He's not just playing against pre-programmed tracks, as many seem to believe. He is controlling multiple instruments simultaneously, composing for them in real time, thinking polyphonically. In the shows I saw not everything he tried worked (well, "Orchestrion" itself did, but then he did more free-form pieces that were different in each show I saw). But some of what he did reached truly exalted heights.

And the Orchestrion itself is a wonder. I can't wait to see it in detail.

I agree with everything you say. He says in one performance that he would LOVE to explain how it works, but it would take more than two hours. According to Pat, "its everything you think it is, and 100x more". The only thing I worry about on this disc is that it will be too sterile.....with there being no other performers on stage with him. I do trust Pat, however, that it will be magical.

It's great to see that "Concert For George" is finally schedued for release on Blu on February 22. A personal favorite!

A nice audio/video presentation on DVD that should translate well to hi-def and hi-res.
post #432 of 578
"Concert For George" is available to pre-order now at Amazon.

Collective Soul "Home" is a great concert. It was recorded in 2006 and recently released on Blu-ray. The Atlanta Youth Symphony Orchestra backs them up and it's also in DTS-HD MA 6.1 surround.

Waiting for Toto's "Falling in Between" Blu Ray to come. Saw/recorded it off of Direct TV but because of my receiver audio cut outs in DD I can only listen to it in all channel stereo.

For anyone interested in 3D concert material, "Kenny Chesney:Summer in 3D" is being released on March 29th. Amazon has the nice pre-order price of only $15.99.

Another new Blu-ray concert release due out on February 22, "Jeff Beck Rock & Roll Party: Honoring Les Paul" Pre-order at AMZ for only $14.99, nice deal.

"Rock N' Roll Party Honoring Les Paul includes the classics Bye Bye Blues, Sitting On Top Of The World, Mockin' Bird Hill, Peter Gunn, How High The Moon, New Orleans, Walking In The Sand, among others! In addition to the music, the DVD contains a host of bonus features: An interview with Jeff Beck; Behind The Scenes; At home with Jeff Beck & his guitars; Jeff Beck & Les Paul - Rock n' Roll Tonite and Les Paul & his little black box.

Complete track listing available at MusicNewsNet.com

Nice, at 14.99 I will have to pick this one up. I always find myself watching the Jeff Beck: Live at Ronnie Scott's blu-ray.
post #441 of 578
I didn't notice any prior mention of this, but on February 22 "Les Miserables,
25th Anniversary Concert" is scheduled for release. A bit pricey for a concert Blu-ray, but some wonderful music, nonetheless. It will be hard to beat the
10th Anniversary Dream Cast release in terms of performances, but that was a poor presentation on DVD. This new release is from Universal, and not VCI/Tristar, or the BBC.

May not be everyone's cup of tea, but can anyone comment on the Regina Spektor blu ray that came out recently?


Oh, and one that Quickster2 should have added---Nine Inch Nails: Beside You in Time. Outstanding!

Should also add Strat Pack & I 2nd the plug for the Toto Falling in Between. I bought and sold the Nine Inch Nails I agree PQ & AQ excellent just could not get into the music as much as I tried. The Jewel BD is good also but not a fan of her either. Oh well..

I think if you are a fan of Regina Spektor, you will find the concert enjoyable. I did. It is kind of short though. I wish she would have performed some more of her older songs. For audio, there is both a 5.1 DTS-MA track and a 2.0 PCM track. As a side note, I am not really a fan of the packaging for this set. It is a cardboard case that the blu-ray and cd slide into. I will probably have to make a custom cover for it so I can put it in a real case.

I purchased the new Alice Cooper Blu and I'm not impressed with it. His "Alice Cooper: Live at Montreux 2005 " is better in both picture and sound quality imo, and by quite a bit. I would purchase 2005 over the new one if your debating between the two. They pretty much have the same set list. The 2005 "Live in Montreux" disc looks pristine at times. One of the best concert blu's for video and sound quality that I have seen. And I own and have seen alot of concert blu's.

Also, I watched the new Kansas blu again over the holidays and the sound quality is incredible on this disc. Both 2 and 5 ch. pcm. It sounds so powerful at times that it sends chills down the spine. I can't recommended it enough if you are a Kansas fan.
post #447 of 578
Just picked up Sting in Berlin. I thought it was a great concert. Video was excellent. Audio was also, but the surrounds (especially vocals) may be a little too engaged for some (including me). Other recommendation of mine included David Foster, Chris Botti, Stevie Wonder, Elton at 60, Roy Orbison, Neil Diamond in NYC. Still waiting for Eagles Farewell and McCartney in NY to appear on Blu-ray. Was not impressed at all by the sound on Bad Company and I can marginally recommend Moody Blues at the Greek if you like them, Video and Sound are first rate, but not enough songs that stand out for my taste.

If anyone's interested (and I know somebody must be), Blu-ray.com has posted that the classic AC/DC concert film, Let There Be Rock, will be available on June 7 as a limited-edition, 30th Anniversary collector's tin BD/DVD combo package loaded with extras. More on it here:

Although not a concert, Rush's Moving Pictures album on Blu-ray audio was recently announced.

http://www.blu-ray.com/news/?id=5993

There will also be a CD/DVD-Audio version and I'm torn between getting that or the Blu-ray. I may wait for some reviews to see if for whatever reason there is a difference in sound quality between the DVD-Audio, dts-HD Master Audio and PCM 5.1 tracks. All 5.1 tracks are 96/24 though which should be a treat.
