For anyone that is a fan of Roxy Music and Bryan Ferry you may want to check out Live in Lyon by Bryan Ferry. Played it twice over the past weekend and it is very well done!

For anyone interested in Roy Orbison's Black and White Night, it's about to be reissued by his boys next month as Black and White Night 30. The link shows a cd + blu ray for $23 CDN, cheaper of course at Amazon.com. Since they used several cameras, there will be new angles used in the concert. Plus a "secret concert" of 5 songs played after the crowd left, a 33 minute documentary, and an alternate version of Pretty Woman. Hard to believe that they could make this sound much better, but I may double dip because of the after concert and mini doc...

Peter Gabriel 'Secret World' is a must for Peter Gabriel fans and here are some details on the bluray remaster

Fantastic show- the blu really does it justice. Biggest ever upgrade from dvd- which was unwatchable once I got a big screen hdtv (it was non-anamorphic). One of my fave concert blu's.

But I watch live at Athens even more. Great setlist- more early PG. And minimalist theatrics. Great set that includes the Play dvd which has all PG's videos w/ 5.1 sound (w/ the DTS track fixed, whereas the Play dvd release was defective). That dvd alone is worth the cost imo. The best document of PG in 5.1.

That's weird, all I could find was the "CD/DVD" edition.
This will be a quadruple dip. (5 if you count the HD-DVD)

I also own and love the Eagles and Metallica Blu rays, but the visuals aren't even close to the Prism disc.
I won't flame you, I went to that concert...TWICE!!!!! I am 45 years old w/ no kids... it was one of the best shows / concerts I've seen...and the blu ray sound / visual is awesome!!!

Question Styx - Return to Paradise (DVD)

Does anyone in this thread have "Styx - Return to Paradise" on DVD?


If so, I was wondering if you also get an "Empty Center Channel" when playing the Dolby Digital 5.1 track?


I really like this live concert ... in this one, Dennis DeYoung is still with the band.

I don't own that concert, but the lack of a centre channel seems to happen once in awhile. It reminds me of the 5.1 DTS-HD Master codec on Shania Twain's Still The One blu ray. It sounds fantastic, but the centre channel is completely dead.

I just put in my copy of Return to Paradise and can confirm it does not use the center channel. I have found this to be true in a number of concert discs as well. If you are a Styx fan I highly recommend the Styx with the Contemporary Youth Orchestra of Cleveland Blu Ray. It is an excellent concert disc.

Wow, really? They sure messed-up on the mastering of that one didn't they. You would think they would test it on some current systems in the wild before dedicating it to final glass-master.

Thanks for checking that for me.

While the DD5.1 (AC3) track is not perfect ... it sounds much better that the other Stereo/Pro-Logic track. The fidelity is better and of course the channel separation is much better (just no center).


AFAIK, no way to fake or matrix a center channel back in (maybe a mix of Front Left/Right) using a setting on the AVR when playing the DD5.1 track.

I would actually be willing to spend considerable time learning how to fixing this. Maybe re-encoding the DVD content to a MP4 or MKV and mixing-up a center channel in the process ? (and then play with Kodi)

I remember watching it all the way through thinking how great it sounded for a concert. A couple of weeks later a forum member posted that there was no sound from the centre during the 5.1 of the concert. So I put it back in and I'll be darned if there wasn't. They did a great job of ghosting the centre with the L and R fronts. Makes me wonder now how many others I might have with the same issue!

1. At least there is that. Our Acura MDX has a "neural mode" that can do that but the passenger-cabin is relatively small, so it's easy.

2. When watching on the projector in our good-sized room ... the front-sound-stage is pretty wide. It's easy to tell that no sound is coming directly at you from Center speaker. I would even say distracting. I know ... first world problems ... but I think most if us here have tweaked, calibrated, and can appreciate a properly balanced surround-sound system.

Cool Clapton's Slowhand at 70 is my #1. And weekendtoy got it right!

Wow what a great thread this is Gents. Too bad no one is posting to it these days.

I'm a long time nut for Concerts on Disks. I have over 200 on DVDs, and once I heard a Blu-Ray on a decent system I immediately moved over. I've reworked one of our HT systems to Dolby Atmos and have started to revisit some of the Blu-Rays.

It took 8 pages for someone to mention my #1 . And weekendtoy got it right!. So far Clapton's Slowhand at 70 is the top of my list on my 5.2.4 system. (I need to add an extra Stereo Amp to utilize the 7.2.4 installed but from what I see posted it won't add much in my room.) I know our Denon just simulates the Atmos Speaker feed for this disk, but the small amount of sound just adds a spaciousness to a crisp recording; so much so you close you eyes and your sitting in the 7th row - dead center, at Earl's Court. Of course I may be a bit prejudiced, and yes, I saw him live a couple years back here in Vancouver.

By the way, the first Atmos disk I bought was Roger Waters, The Wall. Boy was I disappointed. A lot of folks raved about it, but I guess I just missed it. Of course I love any David Gilmore disks so far.

Like many I suspect, my best DVD sound was The Eagles - Hell Freezes Over => no question. I've started to buy some titles in Blu-Ray that I have in DVD (Like Roy Orbison's Black & White Night; Supertramp -Live in Paris. Just don't tell my wife!) and this Eagles disk is on the top of my want list if it ever comes out in Blu-Ray.

I'm trying to figure out which concert would be best in Blu-Ray for Springsteen, Heart, and Joe Bonamassa. Any input would be appreciated.

I also have many concert dvds and blurays. Really enjoy them. Being a Clapton fan and having every bluray and some dvds of his concerts. Also have every Joe Bonamassa bluray and some dvds. For ME it would be VERY difficult to name just one favorite of either Clapton or Bonamassa.

Seeing how you like Clapton. If you don’t own Joe Bonamassa British Blues Explosion. You may enjoy his tribute to some of the notable British rockers. The 1st time I watched/listened to it. When I heard him play Mainline Florida. I must have played it 20 times. So many Great songs on that bluray.

It took 8 pages for someone to mention my #1 . And weekendtoy got it right!. So far Clapton's Slowhand at 70 is the top of my list on my 5.2.4 system. (I need to add an extra Stereo Amp to utilize the 7.2.4 installed but from what I see posted it won't add much in my room.) I know our Denon just simulates the Atmos Speaker feed for this disk, but the small amount of sound just adds a spaciousness to a crisp recording; so much so you close you eyes and your sitting in the 7th row - dead center, at Earl's Court. Of course I may be a bit prejudiced, and yes, I saw him live a couple years back here in Vancouver.

By the way, the first Atmos disk I bought was Roger Waters, The Wall. Boy was I disappointed. A lot of folks raved about it, but I guess I just missed it. Of course I love any David Gilmore disks so far.

Like many I suspect, my best DVD sound was The Eagles - Hell Freezes Over => no question. I've started to buy some titles in Blu-Ray that I have in DVD (Like Roy Orbison's Black & White Night; Supertramp -Live in Paris. Just don't tell my wife!) and this Eagles disk is on the top of my want list if it ever comes out in Blu-Ray.

I'm trying to figure out which concert would be best in Blu-Ray for Springsteen, Heart, and Joe Bonamassa. Any input would be appreciated.
Glad you're enjoying the Clapton show Mr. Jim. You'll find I'm rarely wrong

I have a few from Heart, Night At Sky Church would be a favourite of mine. Lots of choices from Bonamassa, I still like the Beacon Theatre concert best (Mountain Time is worth the price of admission imo). For something a bit different, his acoustic concert from Vienna is great. If you like the Eagles, their Farewell concert from Australia is very hard to match for A/V. Concerning David Gilmour, Remember That Night and Live at Pompeii are both stellar. If you get the Pompeii concert, I'd recommend to get the deluxe version with 2 blu rays, you'll get several cuts from 2 other venues. I have a few from Clapton, probably the Cream reunion concert from the Royal Albert Hall being a favourite. His Slowhand at 70 is also good, and don't forget he has a few Crossroad blu rays to choose from.

For pure sight and sound on a blu ray concert, I'd recommend the Eagles one mentioned, Jethro Tull in Montreux 2003, Return to Forever at Montreux, Doobie Brothers Live at Wolf Trap, B.B. King at Montreux, Jeff Beck Live at Ronnie Scott's, Peter Gabriel Growing Up Live, Sting Live in Berlin just to name a few you can't go wrong with if you have an interest in any of these bands. Happy shopping!

The Soundgarden disc is massive. Of course it must be played at high levels, and does, in fact, sound better the louder you play it. The surround mix isn't super discrete, but does add to the experience.

A must have for any Soundgarden fan or if you just enjoy hard-rocking music in general.


PS: I also have the Badmotorfinger box set. The box set has a concert DVD from that tour. The two videos combined are kind of cool retrospective, in that you get shows from the beginning and the end of the band. The DVD is more like a bootleg though while the Blu Ray is top-notch professional affair.
