    I have a Metallica S&M DVD (Metallica with Symphony) and it has turned into one of my favorite performances out of all my CDs (more than 350 of them) and DVDs (only 6 of them). I'm very interested in finding other music DVDs that have excellent sound. I have found some DVDs from bands/performers that I really like and would like to hear from people who have seen and heard these to find out if they sound as good or better than the cd. I also like the added enjoyment of seeing the performers as well as hearing them. If anyone has any information on the ones listed please let me know.

    1. Santana - Supernatural Live DVD(I love this Cd)
    2. Dave Matthews - The Singles DVD
    3. Gimme Shelter (Stones) DVD
    4. Rush - Chronicles DVD

    Also, if anyone has any other exceptional DVDs similar to this type of music, as well as classical please let me know.

    Thanks

    I would recommend "The Rolling Stones Rock and Roll Circus" solely on the performance of The Who which literally blasts The Stones away. I know it's available as a CD and should be on DVD. It was believed this was the reason why this film stayed out of sight for so long. Now, if Mick and the boys would release "C***sucker Blues"...

    Roy Orbison "Black and White Night". By far the best DVD I've ever heard, music or otherwise. Great rock 'n roll, his band that night included Jackson Browne, Burnett, Elvis Costello, k.d. lang, Bonnie Raitt, J.D. Souther, Bruce Springsteen, Tom Waits, and Jennifer Warnes. Perfect 5 out of 5 stars every where I see it reviewed, including over at Amazon.com

    Might want to check out Diana Krall's "Live in Paris" if you like Jazz. It has everything the hardcore HTF buff would want. Amazing DTS sound, great performance and video quality, and 16:9 support.

    And I have the Metallica S&M Disk too. Awesome performance.

    You should absolutely consider getting Procol Harum Live in Copenhagen. They also have an earlier DVD - Best of Musikladen - which is (mostly) from a 1971 TV performance.
    Copenhagen was filmed at a concert in 12/01.

    A lot of people like "The Who - Live at Royal Albert Hall." I bought it after reading the few threads that Jeff linked above. It is truly an awesome concert DVD. Might want to check it out.

    I would highly recommend the following:

    1. Joe Satriani- Live in San Francisco, just awesome.
    2. G3 Live
    3. Diana Krall Live in Paris
    4. Eagles, Hell Freezes Over
    5. Keb Mo- Sessions at West 54th

    Stay away fromt the Rush Chronicles, it was really bad. I LOVE Rush, I was so mad at this DVD. But, I will watch it again with my new Adire Speakers. It may be just the speakers I had before. Another one that comes to mind is Tom Petty Playback and Dave Matthews Listener Supported, that one rocks and is LONG!!!!
