    I've been in the mood to get some new music DVDs lately, but don't really know what's out there to get. I love the Zeppelin set that was released a year or two ago, and am pretty partial to The Who at the Isle of Wight. The Kids are Alright is pretty good too. I would love for Nickel Creek to come out with a DVD, and The Black Crowes should have something out this year too. As I'm watching Rush's Live in Rio on VH-1 Classic right now, I was wondering....

    What are your favorite music or music-related DVDs?

    Alicia keys- unplugged
    Talking heads - stop making sense
    Joni Mitchell - shadows and light
    Miles Davis electric band
    Any Earth wind and fire concert(they are radical)

    Those are a few that I dig a lot. Also 'the last waltz' is pretty awesome, though it's really more of a documentary.

    some old, some new, just some dvds I have sitting on the player right now that I've been jamming.

    Tetsuo Sakurai (w/D. Chambers, G. Howe) Gentle Hearts Tour 2004. Got this from Audiophile Imports recently, amazing.

    Marcus Miller - Master of All Trades. Another one from Audoiphile, very good.

    RHCP - Live at Slane Castle. Kinda loose but in a good funky way.

    Hall & Oates, live in concert (2003). I really dig T-Bone's playing, and he sounds great on this one.

    Chicago - Live by Request. I think Jason Scheff is underrated and both his playing and vocals kill on this one.

    Bireli Lagrene/Sylvan Luc - Jazz in Mariac 2000. I'm not even much of a guitarist but this guitar duo concert is unbelievable. There's an upright player that joins them for a few songs, but mostly just Bireli and Sylvan shredding on everything from straight ahead jazz to a great version of 'isn't she lovely'. Very musically inspiring.

    I just got the Chick Corea Elektric Band live at Montreaux, and Cyndi Lauper: Live At Last. I haven't seen them yet, but I expect them both to be pretty badass.

    I recently watched the Concert for Bangla Desh (saw it first about 30 years ago). I had forgotten what a solid bassist Klaus Voormon is.
    I also enjoyed Fleetwood Mac - The Dance.
    The Zeppelin DVD is the best bargain out there.
  12. The Eagles: Farewell Tour [Australia]
    Jamiroquai - Live in Verona
