I bought that just to get Woke Up This Morning, I've already got the others I believe in their own releases as it's a compilation disc.

thanks to @The Bright Side :

Moby - Play - The DVD and 18 DVD + B-Sides (Dolby Digital 5.1, 2001 and 2003) (Both sound great, contain lots of videos, long megamixes, audio-only b-sides, live performances and more. I think they add up to 7-8 hours of music in 5.1 Surround. Mixes range from okay to pretty good. The styles range from trancey (especially the megamixes) to mellow-acoustic (the b-sides on the "18" DVD). Highly recommended,
VERY affordable on discogs:

IF EVER AN ALBUM BEGGED FOR THE SURROUND TREATMENT, MOBY'S EXCELLENT PLAY IS IT. I have this DVD and while it's enjoyable, even in DD 5.1, there's very little in the rears.

i'm enjoying this DualDisc (
POLL)

I have BOTH and the SACD is definitely BETTER. Saw Duran Duran @ Madison Square Garden years ago and recall poor Simon Le Bon tripped and fell on his ass but the trooper he was, got up never missing a Beat.

LOVED their videos in the early days of MTV. Wish their early albums received the surround treatment.

The BBB Featuring Bernie Dresel - Bern Bern Bern
Just got the BluRay from Bernie's website today, it floored me!
The SQ of the recording is first class, maybe because Bernie is the drummer but the drum sound in great, the brass shimmer of the cymbals is near the best I've ever heard. The immersive soundspace of the Native Auro 3D recording is impressive, I only have a couple Native Auro 3D music recordings but this one has killed them and along with the Atmos ones I've heard. This despite the fact that my overhead ceiling speakers are positioned in the traditional 4 speaker Atmos layout.
Beyond the technology and recording tricks, the music is wonderful. Big Band style with lot's of horns and I'm a horny kind of guy. :p And just a tiny taste of modern techno-jazz mixed in.
I can't recommend this recording highly enough, and at $30 for the BluRay direct from Bernie it's a steal. A couple bucks more if you want a personally signed one.
