The ageless Chrissie Hynde brings her Pretenders to the L.A. scene in a terrific upbeat 2003 concert video. Rockers of all ages will really dig this one for its great scenes and sounds.
Peter Gabriel’s New Blood — Live in London concert shows Gabriel’s music is unexpectedly well suited to full orchestration and the 3D production is one of the best I’ve seen for a live concert to date.
After a four decade layoff, Cream were in top form for this 2005 stint at Royal Albert Hall, and the Blu-ray release from Eagle Rock is top notch as well, with reference audio and video.
The sound is excellent for this 2004 show, but every one of this band’s songs just bleeds into one in a seemingly never ending four-hour-long concert of only 18 tracks.
Yes puts their musical talents on stage with orchestral back up. This 2002 concert recording includes most of their big hits. The sound is superb, the picture a bit less satisfying. Steve Howe is a guitar genius that is well worth the price of admission.
Emerson, Lake and Palmer celebrate 40 years of astounding music in this 2010 High Voltage Festival Concert. These senior citizens are in superb form although the lossy soundtrack undermines some of the program’s unquestionable power.
Procol Harum, one of the UK band legends, plays a top drawer concert in this 2003 video recorded at Union Chapel. A play list of mostly favorites is well supported by excellent audio and video production.
Operation Mindcrime I and II are brought to life here, but hampered by a meager set and small budget that doesn’t serve the concept well.
The Stones really seemed to just be going through the motions in this July 5th, 1969 free concert in London’s Hyde Park, only two days after the death of guitarist Brian Jones, making it one of the lesser performances in their concert film canon.
This 1997 concert from Counting Crows captures their classic debut album live in it entirety, with some tracks interestingly updated, but all of them done with great energy.
