Live guitar recommendations?
 
I was introduced yesterday to Nils Lofgren and the album "Acoustic Live" Was listening on some Bower bookshelves and was blown away. You could hear every pluck of the string, his fingers sliding on the frets, the pick hitting the strings.

Anyways I enjoyed it and thought you folks here would have some recommendations on some good guitar whether acoustic or not. Live is great.

Doesn't need to be in surround, high res would be great, I will probably listen on qobuz if it is available. Thanks

Not live but the LAGQ series of surround discs (SACD 4.0) are pretty good. Some cheaper to get than others.

A must have in any collection:

Ry Cooder & V. M. Bhatt: A Meeting by the River (SACD 2.0)

A magical journey that only leaves you wanting for more when it's done.

2 notable blu-rays with excellent audio:

Albert Lee: Tearing It Up
Lee Ritenour: Overtime (OOP and hard to find but well worth the effort)

You'd probably enjoy this one if you haven't already. The Dolby TrueHD 5.1 sound is excellent.

Lee Ritenour Six String Theory... It's a surround album with some of the greatest guitarists in the world on it.

This is like a massage to your brain. It makes you appreciate what all the barroque composers wanted to say, but under a modern light:

Concerto Suite for Electric Guitar and Orchestra https://www.amazon.com/dp/B000AQKZ7C..._mK2oDbPDQ38HS

On top of that I also recommend this sublime interpretation of some of the greatest acoustic composition in the past centuries. Many masters such as Agustín Barrios Mangoré are well represented here, and their music will force your imagination to fly:
