Listening to Chili Peppers Live at Slane Castle. My Ex-girlfriend usually listened to this concert dvd and I got to like it, even went to their Concert when they were here.  Also have Chili Peppers- Off the Map dvd, which is also very good, perhaps a more refined performance and slightly faster tempo. Both are very good recordings but Slane Castle makes me think of my time with her.

Love collecting concert films! Got started off with the Grateful Dead boxset...All the Years Combine. My favorite in the series is Downhill From Here, nothing like Brent Mydland vocals or keys.

My other Top 3 are as follows in no particular order:

1) Dave Chappelle's Block Party
2) The Band's Last Waltz
3) Led Zeppelin

Also shout out to the Boiler Room youtube series particularly Mala London https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Hkgik4edDpY&t=3357s

Gov't Mule- Bring on the Music, blu ray, April 2018
Audio: Excellent, pcm stereo, Dolby True Digital, dts HD 5.1
Video: Excellent, camera editing good doesn't change angles in 2 seconds or less.
Performance: excellent
Genre: Blues Rock
Rating: 4 out 5

Comments: A well made blu ray concert. I however was disappointed with the setlist. Like I have Gov't Mule CD, so I was hoping for similar instead the concert started slow and didn't pick up steam until halfway through. Band has a good sound to them and I would compare their sound to ZZ Top.





Eric Clapton- Live in San Diego with special guest JJ Cale, blu ray, recorded March 15 , 2007
Audio: Excellent, pcm stero, dts HD master audio 5.1
Video: Excellent
Performance: Excellent
Genre: Blues Rock
Rating: 5 out of 5

Comments: a well produced concert video. Not my taste in music but relaxing to listen to with a mix of JJ Cale songs and I'm guessing Stevie Ray Vaughan and Eric Clapton.



Kansas- There's No Place Like Home, blu ray 35th Anniversary 2009, with orchestra
Audio: Outstanding, Dolby Digital stereo/5.1, pcm stereo 24/48, pcm 5.1
Video: Excellent
Performance: Excellent
Genre: progressive rock
Rating: 5 out of 5

Comments: I have Kansas dvd where they play some really good Hard Rock. This setlist did nothing for me, too much lyric or poetry content, not my style.

Michael Schenker- Temple of Rock, Blu ray, May 13 2012
Audio: Excellent, Lpcm stereo, dts HD Master 5.1
Video: Excellent
Performance: Excellent
Genre: hard rock
Rating: 4 1/2 out of 5

Comments: Concert opens in an intimate venue on a smallish stage with a NO Non-sense Rock setlist from beginning to end. However songs IMO lack a little in creative riffs, thus I felt the concert a little tedious to listen to the end. I would describe Michael Schenker's guitar style as a shredder.

Well said, this is one of the reasons there is no more TV set in my home.

I will certainly mention if editing is a hack job and I have a few. I am more likely not going to post 'em and/or other bad blu ray recordings that I would give a bad rating.

DGM- Passing Stages, blu ray, Live in Milan 2016, Live in Atlanta 2013, 2017 release
Audio: Excellent, Dolby Digital 2.0 mpeg
Video: Excellent
Performance: Excellent
Genre: progressive metal/power rock
Rating: 5 out of 5

Comment: Music is hard and fast rock from beginning to end but not rank. For those who have never heard the band I would say their sound is similar to Dream Theater or Statovarius. Of the two concerts I preferred Atlanta.

Blue Oyster Cult- iHeart Radio Theater N.Y.C. 2012, blu ray
Audio: Excellent, Lpcm stereo, Dolby 5.1
Video: picture quality is excellent, camera editing a hack job
Performance: Good, not their best
Genre: Hard Rock
Rating: 3 1/2 out of 5

Comment: Listened in Lpcm, band had 'you are there sound' of a Night Club. Camera editing changes constantly usually under 2 seconds, however on a guitar solo camera actually stayed on the guitar player for awhile. Anyway I switched my TV to Cable TV and just listened to the concert.
Setlist was okay, some songs I hadn't heard, would have like 'Then Came the Last Days in May' included. Band seemed to lack enthusiasm that I seen in another concert video.
