I thought there was a concert DVD thread but couldn't find it. These are about the only discs I buy, and they are getting harder to find.

So, last night is WAR. A very tight, multi rythmed group from the late 60's. They still sounded fine in 2007.

1.The World is a Ghetto
2.Get Down
3.City Country City
4.Slippin' Into Darkness
5.Spill the Wine

Just got this tonight from the Man in the Brown Shorts, just released!



Pic is great! Performance is good, but I'm only about 1/3 of the way thru it (208 minutes! I'll finish it tomorrow night). Mix, so far, is really f*cked up; certain instruments jump to the forefront, then disappear, and everything is bouncing all around, volume-wise. One guest musician is Carlos' wife, one HELL of a drummer, and I feel I've seen her before in another band (Lennie Kravitz? Sheila E? I'll do some digging tomorrow).

My favorite Santana video is Sacred Fire, recorded over ten years ago. I don't know yet if this'll equal it, but its a long video and I have some digesting to do. Still, 208 minutes of Santana, on bluray; oh yeah! :bow-blue: :bow-blue: :bow-blue:

Yeah that and her Roses in the Snow album are what drew me into Emmylou... now I've got 8 of her albums.

I watched this on my flights to and from Spain on my recent trip. I loved it so much, I ended up watching it twice. The video is merely "okay", sound quality is pretty "good", entertainment skills of the performers is "average to low", but the music they are playing - OMG!!! This is the most creative and brilliant band I have heard in decades. It is most adventurous stuff I've heard since Frank Zappa and pushes the envelopes of writing and performing. WOW!!!

Just note, the image on the cover is not from the performance at all. The performance is in a much less interesting club and the stage presence is pretty poor.

it isn't for everyone, though. If you don't love Zappa's instrumental music and Miles Davis and John Coltrane's more adventurous stuff, you probably won't get into it.

A great show, with an incredible climax at the end of "Octavarium"...

Which was ruined by a mechanical disaster, to be outlined in another thread. :angry-banghead:

It's good, and it's different. It's more like his regular live shows, at least based on the one I went to a year ago. Joe maybe doesn't have quite the energy that he did @ RAH, but it's hard to say for certain as I've watched RAH many times and this one only once so I'm kinda biased by the comparison. Overall I think I might like the song selection in Beacon better. SQ is good, all parts coming in clearly (esp. the bass), a good live-sounding mix. PQ definitely an improvement in Beacon.

I'm hesitant to say much more, because I know people are very tired of me going on and on about Joe, so I'll leave it at that.

I hope that you will bring it to John's GTG?

I'm not a big fan of Tom Petty's voice, but he's a crackerjack songwriter and the Heartbreakers are probably the best R-n-R band on the planet. This is a great Bluray so far; great sound and mix, panning is great, and picture is very good (the color seems to be especially good here). I can't see on the label the date this was filmed; Howie's not there (Ron Blair, the original bass player is) and Stan isn't on drums). Benmont's still actually playing a Yammie DX-7 so I'm guessing late 80's/early 90's.
The show just hit the second half, I'll have more to post tomorrow. Good stuff!

So I double dipped and bought this one on Blu ray.

This is probably on of my all time favorites!
