    Good question. I just got a James Taylor DVD concert and I really enjoyed watching it.

    I'd like some early KISS footage from their Alive concert. The audio for the CD probably had video footage shot of the same concert. They could sync them for a concert with audio quality. Also, Animalize LIVE/uncensored is a good concert from their 80's "glam metal" days.

    Olivia, Basia and Swing Out Sister concerts are others that I'd love to have.

    I wouldn't be surprised if KISS decides to film their last shows on the farewell tour (which they claim haven't happened yet). I'm betting they do a multi night stand at Madison Square Garden and they film some of it for a DVD (kind of like Springsteen and the E Street Band did). As far as Zeppelin is concerned, I know that "The Song Remains The Same" is available on DVD. It chronicles their tour from 1973(?). I've not seen it, but I've heard that while the video is 16X9 enhanced, the audio isn't great.

    As far as other concert DVD's to get, the Eagles "Hell Freezes Over" and Sting's "All This Time" are excellent.

    I recommend:

    1. The Cranberries "Beneath the Skin"

    2. AC/DC "Stiff Upper Lip" *Note some of the distance video shots are fuzzy, but the music sounds great!

    3. Sting "Brand New Day Tour"

    4. Fleetwood Mac "The Dance."

    I just got "The Go-Go's, Live from Central Park" a couple of weeks ago. If you're a Go-Go's fan, it a great DVD to own, also have Fleetwood Mac, The Dance and Gloria Estefan. Also have a couple of old Laser Disk concerts

    Don't forget to try King Crimson's "deja VROOOM", one of the best music DVDs out there.

    Personally, I'd like to see more Crimson material, as well as more Todd Rundgren stuff, including the "Live In Japan" video.

    Also, more Joe Jackson, Negativland, Frank Zappa (ESPECIALLY) and Radiohead.

    I hate Godsmack. But I saw most of the DVD last week. Filmed in Video (thank god!). The dts sounded kinda weak, but the 5.1 sounded fuller. I wonder if they just switched the flags or something.

    Really, not a bad DVD.

    If you like the music of Pink Floyd than you must have the Roger Waters In The Flesh DVD.

    I want to see a Van Halen with David Lee Roth era concert on DVD. Heck, even the infamous '83 U.S. Festival would be great! Come on, Warner Bros--that footage is in the vaults somewhere!

    As for existing DVD's, I hear James Taylor's is good, and Bon Jovi's recent release of the Crush tour is excellent.

    Anyone know where I can pick up the Cranberries DVD? I've searched everywhere and no one seems to have it in stock anymore. [​IMG]
