    I'm looking to get some of these, but I'm not sure how to tell the good from the bad. So, I've decided to ask the people here at the HTF what their favorites are to give me an idea of titles I should have a look at.
    I currently have:
    Beastie Boys - Anthology
    Roy Orbison - Black & White Night
    I have a wide range of musical interests, so feel free to suggest anything that tickles your fancy.
    Thanks, Chris.

    Led Zeppelin - The Song Remains The Same was my first music DVD purchase. Probably because they are my all-time favorite band.
    Considering how old the recording is and the fact that the band itself wasn't exactly happy with their performance (it came at the end of an exhausting tour), it still shines over my old VHS copy. OAR and enhanced for widescreen. What more could I ask for? [​IMG]

    I only own three music DVDs, but I'm crazy about them.
    Jonatha Brooke - Steady Pull - this is an amazing disc. Jonatha's a beautiful and ridiculously talented singer/songwriter who recently began her own label. Her first independent studio CD, Steady Pull, was released in the spring. Then, a few months later, she released this hybrid DVD -- on one side is: 2.0 mix, 5.1 mix, accompanying videos, and one hour behind-the-scenes documentary; on side two: 2.0 and multi-channel DVD-A mixes. The disc is mentioned in the latest Sound & Vision, and includes a great photo of her.
    Little Feat - Rockpalast Live - a German TV performance from when Little Feat were at their peak. Amazing show (including "Day at the Dog Races'!), decent sound, acceptable video. What makes it a "must have," though, is a running commentary track with Paul Barrere, Bill Payne, and Lowell George's widow. I know that not many of you are as fanatical about Little Feat as I am, but you should be.
    King Crimson - Deja Vrooom - Amazing 5.1 mix of live show. features multiple angles and some fun extras.

    If we're talking about concert discs, then I'd have to go with Woodstock as the greatest concert film ever.
    And who can pass up the Rolling Stones' Gimme Shelter and Live at the Max? [​IMG]

    Peter Frampton's Live in Detroit is a very good music DVD. Great performance, some of the the best video I've ever seen on a music title, and exquisite DTS sound!
    Like Jeff I am also a Led-Head so I must also recommend The Song Remains the Same. Everything Jeff said about it is true; I was struck by how much better this looked and sounded than I expected.
    I just bought Rush: Chronicles the other day but haven't had a chance to check it out yet. I believe it is just a collection of videos, not a concert film. Still waiting for Exit: Stage Left!

    I'm not sure if they fall into the genre of music DVDs, but Yellow Submarine and The Fantasia Anthology are great.

    Heinz mentioned the Frampton dvd which I have to agree is fantastic. This was one of the first events to be recorded with HD video equipment and it really shows up in the DVDs video quality.
    Joe Satriani Live in San Francisco was recently released and I don't have enough kind words to say about this one. The sound is incredible and the opportunity to watch Joe perform his magic on that Ibanez up close is a treat. I've seen him perform live twice and watched the DVD numerous times and I still can't get enough.

    Hey, thanks guys! Lots of useful suggestions. Gotta go shopping! [​IMG]
    As far as what qualifies as a music DVD, I was thinking about anything from concert DVDs to video compilations to things like Fantasia.

    Stop Making Sense
    Yellow Submarine
    One Love: The Bob Marley Tribute Concert
    Of course, my all-time favorite music disc is still my Elvis Costello's Gretest Hits LD. All of his terribly lip-sync'ed '80s videos in one convenient package. Absolutley love it.
