I've got to second the nomination for Talking Heads - Stop Making Sense.

In the same vein, David Byrne recorded a live show in a church in England (can't recall the title - Maybe live from Union Chapel?). Well recorded, fantastic band with a string section.

John Fogarty - Premonition tour (not the new one).

Roy Orbison - Black and White Night. The band included Springsteen, Bonnie Raitt, Elvis Costello and many more big names.

Stevie Ray Vaughan & Double Trouble - Live at the El Mocambo 1983 (1991)
Stevie Ray Vaughan & Double Trouble - Live From Austin, Texas (1995)
The Allman Brothers Band - Live at the Beacon Theatre (2003)

I you like those SRVs, try this one:

They show Stevie in front of a Jazz Festival crowd, where they hated him.  SRV came out firing (as he always did), and the crowd was not ready for him.  They also show SRV's return a bunch of years later, when the crowd did like him.  It's also interesting to see him and the band that many years apart.

I really like:

Blue Man Group-The Complex Rock Tour (too much fun, but better in person)

Pearl Jam-Live at the Garden (a great show)

James Taylor-Live at the Beacon Theater (classic light rock and beautifully recorded)

U2-Vertigo 05 Live from Chicago (not bad, but I'm sure U2 would have been more enjoyable back in the day...)

Enjoy,

TIC

Crowded House "Farewell to the World"
 It was late last night so here now is a brief review. Out all my rock DVD concerts and I have a lot, I must say this could be one of the best. The sight, the sound, and these 3 guys rip through 24 of their songs (over 2 hours long) with perfection. Neil is joined near the end by good brother Tim and if your are a Crowded house fan, this DVD is also very emotional knowing this is their last concert as Crowded House and the suicide a few years later of the superb drummer Paul Hester. This DVD will keep you on the edge of your seat rock in and singing away. A+++++++++++++

 The only thing I don't like about this and many other DVD concerts is the video editing. Editors seem to think that if they don't move the camera a lot or change quickly from shot to shot that we won't enjoy the video. I wish they would stop that bullshit and keep the camera/editing on the person who should be highlighted. That is one good thing about older concert videos. The editing is down to a minimum. They use to let the band/musician do the talking, not the editing work.

Here is a few from my collection that I really enjoy.

David Bowie " Ziggy Stardust and the spiders from Mars"
David Bowie "Reality"
Blondie "Live"
Emerson Lake & Palmer " Live at Montreux"
Neil Finn "Sessions at West 54th"
Neil Finn & Friends "7 Worlds Collide"
Gentle Giant "GG at the GG Sight and Sound Concert"
David Gilmour "In Concert"
Peter Gabriel "Growing Up Live"
Heart "Alive in Seattle"
Iggy Pop "Live at Avenue B"
Ian Hunter "Strings Attached"
Ian Hunter and the Rant Band "Just Another Night"
Jethro Tull "Living with the Past"
The Knack "Rock n Roll Funhouse"
Queen "Live at the Bowl"
Queen "Live at Wembley"
Todd Rundgren "Liars Live"
Todd Rundgren "Live in San Francisco"
Roxy Music "Live at the Apollo"
Sparks "Live in Stockholm"
Tower of Power "Live at Iowa State University"
Utopia "Redux 92 Live in Japan"
Roger Waters "The Wall Live in Berlin"
Roger Waters "In the Flesh Live"
The Who "Live at Royal Albert Hall"
Yes "Live at the House of Blues"

the end  :D
