I guess you could do Gentle Giant: The Power and the Glory as you would get great music, incredible 5.1 mix and video to boot.

Agreed. I'm 29, and love classic rock. I enjoy all the high quality ones too. Will have to give LCD Soundsystem a shot. Saw James Murphy once at Gathering of The Vibes.

Good music is good music! hear hear! :)

James Murphy is a massive audio and music perfectionist. He is awesome. My father in law is a big Rush\Hip\Dire Straits\Springsteen fan. He loves LCD too. :) A must buy if you like the band, post punk, alt dance or indie music in general. Very fun special guest appearances.... including spaceships. :cool:

I saw that you mentioned the "Hip" so had to check and, of course, see that you're Canadian! Although I've been living in Panama for 25 years, I'm Canadian too...love the Tragically Hip! ;)

I just checked out some YouTube clips of Shut Up and Play the Hits...I will pick up a copy of the blu-ray!

For sure, The Eagles concert is hard to beat. I have about 150 BD concerts, and Jethro Tull in Montreux 2003 is still a favourite ;)

A quick look at Amazon reveals that only Alchemy appears to have made it to BluRay. There's something a bit special about this one though, and that's the bonus material in the form of 2 episodes of the BBCs Old Grey Whistle Test, one from 1978 and the other from 1980. This BBC show was famous for showcasing some of the best performers in rock history. Just about everybody who was anybody appeared on the show. The BluRay is worth having for the extras alone. (I'm about to order my copy).

Edit: Ordered. Thanks for reminding me that I was missing this concert.

Own the Dire Strais Alchemy bluray. The stereo mix sounds better. The surround mix is pretty average. Not very dynamic or present at all. Good performance still.

The Melbourne concert made HD-DVD, but not Blu-ray. That's about the only reason I still have my HD-DVD player still around. Alchemy audio is good, not great. The video is old SD, but fun nonetheless.
