My collection of DVD concerts has grown to 50+, and I thought it would be interesting to hear some of everyones favorites. Concert titles only, and we'll accept as a given that the Allman Bros. at the Beacon is everyones #1. Some personal favorites;
The Rolling Stones / Bridges to Babylon
The Who / Live at the Royal Albert Hall
Tina Turner / One Last Time
Bruce Springsteen / Live in New York City
John Fogerty / Premonition
Carol King / In Concert
Santana / Supernatural

Just picked up the Grateful Dead's "Downhill From Here" DVD yesterday. It's from 1989 at Alpine Valley, and it's a good one. Saw the JGB there around that time, and it's an awesome venue.

Heartworn Highways-THis first came out in 1975 and has been re-released, worked over, sound and picture made right and ready for DVD. Townes Van Zandt, Guy CLark, John Hiatt, Barefoot Jerry, CHarlie Daniels Band, et al. Good down to earth stuff.

Alison Krauss and Union Station.- "LIVE", good way to see why these guys are selling out everywhere they go. And with Jerry Douglas throwing down on it, it is good stuff.

Merlefest 15th Anniversary Jam--FRom one of the best music festivals in the world, with host Doc Watson, and a ton of guests, including Tony Rice,Jerry Douglas, Nickel Creek, Patty Loveless, Earl Scruggs, Sam Bush, et al.

I watch Pink Floyd Live at Pompeii more than any of my other music DVD's. The Talking Heads' "Stop Making Sense" is pretty good entertainment, too.

Slidemon, great. Thanks a lot. Now I'm going to have David Gilmour's voice (and the image of the wind in his face, hair in his mouth) running through my head all the way home until I can get to my Floyd Collection.

AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAHhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh-Aaaaaaaaaaaaahhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh! Aaaaahh-aaaahhh-aaahhhhh-aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaahhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhaaaaaaaaaaaaa aaaaaahhhhhhhhhhhhhh. Aaaaaaaaahhhhhhhh - Aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaahhhhhhhhhhhhhhh, Aaaaaahhhhhhh, ahhhhhhhhhhhhh aaaaaaaah ahhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh!

"If you give a man a stratocaster guitar and that doesn't make him Eric Clapton. If you give him a synthesizer and an amplifier, it doesn't make him anyone else. It doesn't make him us."

I actually have the soundtrack to "Pompeii" on vinyl albums, in case anyone with deep pockets wants to PM me.

I got myself on that one, too. I've been toying with the idea of leaving work early enough to watch both disks before the baseball game starts tonight.

Hmm... maybe I can kill two birds with one stone...

There have been some good DVD's this year, I am still waiting for the European version of the Beacon DVD so can not comment on that but:
Led Zeppelin DVD Awsome and a standard setter for perfomance and Content.
David Gilmour Live Supurb re-invention of the Dave Gilmour/Pink Floyd Sound.
Pretty things live in Abbey Road Long forgotten band produce an excellent version of their classic SF Sorrow album.

Sightly older but none the less brilliant
The Old Grey whistle test- TV program stunning version of Freebird loads of songs recorded by the BBC for the program of the same name.
OGWT volume 2
Beatles Anthology
Beatles Yellow Submarine

Still waiting for
Pink Floyd Live in Pompeii
ABB Live at the Beacon

My favorite DVD we have is Blue's Clues. Blue's magical musical adventure! It is narrated by Ray Charles, he explains how to use harmony and rythm. It's great for the kids!

It's called Sects, Dregs, and Rock and Roll. It's got a Dixie Dregs performance and a Morse/LaRue performance which has alot of his classical stuff except a few.

The violin parts are really loud in the dixie dregs part...but they didn't remix the audio at all on that concert on purpose (to make it sound live...) but it's still really good they all solo awesomely on about every track haha.

I am pretty amazed at the amount of DVD's you can get now. I remember a few years ago there were just a couple here and there that would look interesting enough to buy. Then I have a ton of video tapes mostly music documentaries and concert tapes that I just can't part with but if I see them on DVD I have to get them because there is bonus extras all the time and the picture and sound is better.

Hey Buds .. I just started using Netflix http://www.netflix.com/Default and it kicks ass ... there's a free trial, then it's about $20/month for all you can rent (3 at a time) ... many, many titles, they have ... I've already checked out 2 Herbie Hancocks, An 80's Miles Davis, Sun Ra, watching a Dead one right now ... The Led Zep one too. Peace.

Beacon 2003 sets a standard that Mule's Deepest End stands right up to. Deepest End is more frenetic and the editing captures the chaos of organizing all those musicians. ABB at the Beacon has more steady camera work and captures the return of a gigantic hero at ease enough to climb out on creativity's limb. Both of these discs capture the live experience better than other live dvd's (IMO).

Peter Gabriel's Secret World Tour was an amazing show but the DVD falls short using too many close ups and missing the scale of the shows design.

I enjoy the Grateful Dead "View from the Vault" series but I have not experienced the immediacy of the show... the stark "in your faceness" that I'm getting from both ABB's Beacon and the Mule's Deepest End production.

Maybe I'm still high on the newness... but man, these DVD's swing.
