  • Sound like a DVD, that I would not buy ;-(

  • “Usually, I’m unwilling to listen and watch a concert video multiple times like I do a great music recording.”

    Same here. Watching musicians perform music eliminates the subjective and emotional associations that naturally and spontaneously flow from pure music sans images. I’m never as deeply moved by music at concerts as I am by solitary home listening via the hi-fi — the visual element reduces my emotional involvement with the music itself and renders the concert and/or concert video more a spectacle or show rather than the raw communication of emotion, which music does like no other art.

      Ya sort of, I have a BD of Celebration Day and at 55 that is a “SHOW” that still congers up memories and emotion.
