    I have The Eagles "Hell freezes over" and love it to listen to and to show off to unsuspecting visitors. Anyone out there got any similiar mind blowing music dvd's they can nudge me towards.

    Cheers

    Blue Man Group! This is an audio only DVD-A but it does contain some still photos and a short doucumentary. This DVD will give your system a serious Bass workout!

    Eurythmics: Peace Tour dvd is excellent.

    Also the Peter Frampton Live dvd gets raves.

    Mark - You've got the best one!
    IMO Hell Freezes Over has no equal in terms of sound quality & I listen to it alot & use it to "blow away" non believers ...
    I have bought some DVD-A stuff & that's up there with HFO (& better in some cases - Eagles again I'm afraid!)
    On the concert side my current fave is the new Yes "Symphonic" which is DTS & pretty good IMO
    I regularly go back to The Corrs "Unplugged" not DTS but sounds gr8

    I hate to be the one to point this out to you guys. HFO is great as long as you don't pick the wrong tracks.
    Please check out the following tracks:
    The Last Resort
    After the piano introduction, in the first verse, you see Henley look back and to the right. A few seconds after that, you get a nasty 60cycle buzz (and harmonics) from something (an amplifier or stage monitor) that lasts for quite some time.....
    Desperado
    Same buzz is apparent at the beginning of the track. It lasts for the whole song.
    Don't say I didn't warn you [​IMG]
    Regards,

    My jaw dropper used to be HFO, but after picking up Diana Krall Live in Paris, that is my new reference music DVD.[​IMG]

    John,

    I personally like her take on Joni Mitchell's A Case of You --- seems like she is most into the performance when it's just her and the piano.

    May not be your cup of tea, but Nine Inch Nails concert dvd (2 discs) is extremely powerful.

    I love the All That Could Have Been DVDs! Very well recorded and mixed for this type of music, but it helps a lot to like the music too, which I do [​IMG] .
    On the Diana Krall, I really enjoy most every track (yes I have maybe an odd variety of taste in music). I was very impressed with the recording and the mix. Good surround that doesn't really call attention to itself. I was a fan of her before, but the DVD is something special!
    I also have Eagles:HFO, and prefer selected tracks. I don't tend to listen to the whole thing at once, like I do with Diana and NIN. My favorite track on the HFO disc is Seven Bridges Road. If you haven't already, give a close listen to each speaker in your setup...one voice is in each speaker. [​IMG]

    that's the one thing i found disappointing about the HFO dvd, not only is Seven Bridges Road audio only, but it's remixed from the 1980 "Live" album, not the HFO tour. i wonder why?

    but i'll put SBR, Wasted Time, Pretty Maids All In A Row & I Can't Tell You Why on repeat and i'm set...

    David,

    Maybe they couldn't get as good a take in the two days that they were performing/recording as they did in 1980.

    Was SBR on the "concert set" that was performed around the world?

    X-Japan: The Last Live (region 2)

    There is no LFE equal to its PCM track
