    Default MUSIC ONLY! What's Your Latest Blu-Ray or Blu-Ray-A, Concert or Music-Related?

    Music is the reason we're all here. (I hope.) What concert, music documentary, musical movie, video collection or album on Blu-Ray/Blu-Ray-A is the latest added to your pile? This thread is NOT intended for movies with no connection to music. Thanks!

    Mine are:
    Concert for George (Harrison)
    Heart-Night at Sky Church
    Hair ('79 movie)
    Bob Dylan Revealed, a documentary

    The Planets - An HD Odessey - The Houston Symphony - Director: Hans Graf

    I know, another "Planets", but this one is very nicely done with beautiful telescopic, artistic and theoretical views of the planets of our solar system.

    I need to get the Planets. This thread could prove expensive.

    I had this one briefly, gifted it to a friend (after ripping to m2ts). Very nice, not my favorite Planets performance but fun to watch/listen. I just wish they had a second video stream that showed the orchestra actually playing, you can only watch the Hubble/CGI so many times.

    Features 2 surround mixes - the theatrical film mix and the "studio remix" version - the studio surround mix is excellent (IMO) - surrounds are used effectively - one of my favorite BD titles!

    How is the Heart disc? I've hesitated because, a) Heart releases concert videos almost as often as McCartney, b) I've already got "The Road Home" and "Live In Seattle", and c) I was very underwhelmed with the Dreamboat Annie Live performance, particularly the lead guitarist.

    Over a year....yikes.
    I've only had my copy for two weeks, but it means disconnecting my BR player and hauling it downstairs to the audio system to play it in 2 channel.
    Suppose I could play it in 5.1 now

    How is the Deep Purple? It is Deep Purple version 2.0 right? (or is it actually 3.0? I forget how all of those band member changes went.) Is it mostly a documentary? The ELP concert looks cool as well.

    Also, where did you find the Eagle Vision Blu-ray sampler?

    Dennis, DP Phoenix has the 80 min. doc Gettin' Tighter, plus 30 min. 5 track 12/15/75 Budokan and 8 audio tracks from 12/75 Jakarta. It also has an interview with Lord & Hughes and the video "Come Taste the Band electronic press kit." Video concert has a similar look to Zep's SRTS movie. 5.1 means very light ambience in the rears, which are almost non existent. I'll switch to 2ch for this disc in the future. Fidelity is nothing to write home about. Overall, a 5. It's DP Mark IV, with Coverdale & Bolin.

    Heart's Night at Sky Church was listed in an earlier thread. It has 2.0 as default audio. 5.1 has REAL ambience/audience in rears. Video and audio quality are good. I prefer Live in Seattle, my vote for best combined audio/video/performance Blu-Ray or DVD by ANYONE. Alison Krauss guests on These Dreams, Safronia's Mark & Your Long Journey. Worth the price of admission if you dig Alison. I do. Never, What About Love, Kick It Out and tracks from Red Velvet Car (good album, a 9) aren't on Seattle, so those are good reasons, too. I give this a 9, 8 without Alison. You've GOT to hear Alison sing These Dreams!

    The Eagle Vision Blu-ray Sampler came from Rolling Stones in Norridge, IL. I have 9 of the Blu-Rays it was taken from. It was free with any three EV Blu-Rays. I've been blessed with piles of promos from my friends in the record business over the years. Could it be because I buy do damned much? RS is the largest volume single store in IL. A short cab ride from O'Hare if you've got a long layover. Everything listed in this post and my 9/27 2nd post on the Latest CD thread is from RS. R&R HEAVEN. Long live RS!!! http://www.rollingstonesmusic.com

    I got the latest Gary Moore Blu-Ray release, Live at Montreau 2010, and while the audio is fine, it's a bit disturbing to watch with the knowledge that he was going to pass away a few months later. In HD, he really looks in bad shape. Especially when you compare his look to the "bonus" concert footage from 10 or so years earlier.

    The surround on this one is typical live 5.1, nothing special, but watching him play the guitar is worth the price of the disc itself. It's a shame that he appears to have let hiimself go so badly. It makes it kind of a bummer to watch the concert.
