Hans Zimmer- Live in Prague, 2016
Audio: Excellent - Lpcm stereo, Dolby Atmos
Video: 1080p High Definition, excellent
Performance: excellent
Genre: movie soundtracks, orchestra
Comments:
   Listened in Lpcm stereo piggybacked through external dac thru digital dac in pre-amp. Also tried Dolby Atmos, found Lpcm to have more organic quality, bass more solid. My system not set up for Dolby Atmos so may out perform Lpcm on said system.
 Audio in digital stereo mode did not clip the display, thus meeting the THX standard. IMO music was complex, perhaps tedious at times, but musicianship was top notch and some tracks stellar. Lady on the 5 string bass hit some really low notes which if you have the speakers for add a wow factor.

Rate 5 out of 5 stars

Ted Nugent- Motor City Mayhem blu ray
Audio: excellent, Lpcm, dts HD, Dolby Digital 5.1
Video: excellent, 1080i High Definition widesrceen
Performance: Very Good not his best IMO, would have preferred a different set list with my favorite song of his, Hibernation.
Genre: Hard Rock
Comments:
   Audio constantly clipped display thus not meeting THX standard. Would have preferred Ted's guitar to be a bit louder so that I could follow his playing. However the sound was balanced and the best recording I have heard coming from Ted Nugent.

Sade- Bring Me Home, Live 2011- Blu ray
Audio: outstanding - Lpcm, dts Master audio 5.1, Dolby Digital 5.1
Video: excellent, region 0 worldwide
Performance: excellent
Genre: smooth jazz
Comments: IMO Sade's blu ray Shows Off my stereo's capabilities to the highest level. Listened in Lpcm, dts-master audio also high fidelity, Digital Dolby not as good.

Also have Sade-Live dvd 1994 which IMO is a slightly better performance but audio not as good as blu ray. And Sade- Lovers Live, very good with different set list.

I love that you kept this going.  I haven't collected that many that I can add in the last few years since my HT (AT screen) came down.  But I did pick up some, not all of which I've watched (such as Behemoth's live one).

Thanks, I have a lot more to come. I got tired of listening to some dvd's because of compression.

I received my copy in the mail and I have to comment on this concert.
IME this is one of the best concerts I have heard. For those who have the Cd- Crime of the Century, re-mastered you know how good a recording this is. Well the blu ray blows that away, sounds like you are at the concert. The concert starts out with 'School' and I gotta say when the guy jumps on the piano it sounds like a real piano.

Even has the song 'Fool's Overture' which was missing from my collection.

Emerson Lake & Palmer- Pictures at and Exhibition 2010, special edition dvd
Audio: excellent, pcm mono recording
Video: excellent 4:3
Performance: excellent
Genre: progressive rock
Comments: This is a excellent video of the December 1970 performance. However during the performance the video frequently goes into psychedelic graphics which can be annoying when you really want to see this historic event.
Sound quality is excellent with this mono recording. There are a few flaws in the performance, I also have the cd version which I am quite familiar, which is played perfect, but I believe that was a later date performance.

Tea Party- The Reformation Tour, Live in Australia - blu ray 2012
Audio: dts HD 5.1 master audio
Video: excellent
Performance: excellent
Genre: Moroccan-roll rock
Comments: Concert opens with my Tea Party favorite 'The River' and a few other rockers. Then IMO wanes into boring songs. That's just me, I suspect with more listens the set list will grow on me. Hardcore Tea Party fans may find nothin' wrong with set list.
   Would have preferred lead guitar to be more forward sounding, as it is the band sounds balanced. The lack of forwardness in guitar may be due to having the dts-5.1 down-mixed to pcm stereo.
