4.0 out of 5 stars Thank's Johnny..., July 21 2014
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: 2008: Live In Spain (DVD)
Johnny left us this month...and so the blues community,
but he leave us with an huge heritage of his unique Texan
blues.

This dvd by Immortal is a tv broadcast with(WATB)logo, from
the Jazzaldia Festival in San Sebastian, Spain on july 22,2008.
quality of picture and sound is substandard, but still enjoyable;
not much dvd's of Johnny out there anyway.
Johnny is in fragile health and is tempo as slow down with it,
but that's no reason for him...to blow you away with is guitar playing!
bought it for "Red House" cover from Jimi Hendrix...so glad to have it.
(wish that Stevie Ray Vaughan would have cover it before is death too...)

This review is from: In Concert [Import] (DVD)
copie from the live dvd recording of that concert; It is made in Argentina
with basic technology 2.0 dolby digital sound, 4X3 picture, NTSC region free,
dvd 5 disc.
Excellent concert from Jethro Tull 15 songs, professionnal picture shot but
sub-standard bootleg vhs quality and stereo sound only...too bad!

2.0 out of 5 stars Gee...!, March 22 2014
This review is from: Live at Great Woods [Import] (DVD)
that was supposed to be the final and complete release of that famous concert
without interview in the middle of the main feature show...well it is, plus "Jessica"
that was finaly added to the concert that was missing originaly...So what's wrong?

The sound for God sake is in PCM stereo...! the original first dvd released was in
Dolby Digital 5.1 surround and very good quality...!!! the only thing that I can see
here is that new dvd was taken directly from the old 12 inch LaserDisc, because the
picture as not been remaster either; in other words; this is not an Eagle Entertaiment release!
this is also a 4:3 old format picture and not made for 16:9 High Definition blu-ray release either!
so, save your money if you already have the VHS, LaserDisc or the first DVD release;
not worth the re-investment...bad job Sony Music!

5.0 out of 5 stars Still of the Night...show!, April 26 2013
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Made in Japan [Import] (DVD)
Part or their 2011 Forevermore tour; here is the dvd that
is the reflexion of that spirit...with more 35 years of Whitesnake,
David Coverdale and is band are at their best here; a bit short
for a full concert dvd, but picture & sound quality is predominant
here.
Some days ago when David Coverdale was with Deep Purple as front man,
he had is "made in Europe" Lp...now he has is "made in Japan" dvd...!

4.0 out of 5 stars another Hendrix posthumous re-hash compilation..., March 7 2013
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: People, Hell and Angels (Audio CD)
It's a nice album to have for fan's that doesn't have all the original lp's
of that era; Mr.Alan Douglas produced some of it the 1980's and since
those albums has not been re-issued,released or edit again. For legal
issues that the Hendrix Estate family bought back all the right for Jimi's
music.

So, nothing new here that wasn't found on those lp's: cry of love, crash landing,
nine to the universe, war heroes, rainbow bridge and midnight lightning.

recent interview with Janine Hendrix, President/CEO of Experience Hendrix Estate,
saying that other material of Jimi's music is coming out soon, especially some live
concerts from Newport and Miami.

So, in one word "Jimi is dead" and nothing new is coming out, except recorded
material that didn't see the light commercialy for making more money for the
Estate. (any non-release Jimi's music is always welcome.) Enjoy is music,
that's what Jimi wanted anyway...

At The Hollywood Bowl
At The Hollywood Bowl

5.0 out of 5 stars Only live available..., Jan. 18 2013
This review is from: At The Hollywood Bowl (LP Record)
This album represent the very best live feeling
of that 1964-65 era...(not counting "Live at the BBC").
the sound recording is very good for those years,
and it's a crime that this album as not been re-edited
and remastered in The Beatles catalog by Capitol/ EMI.
-(someone is realy sleeping on this one at EMI...shame!)

I bought my copy at Amazon.com ASIN: B003GJUJJO by "1noteCD"
who is not a vinyl to cd transfert; the mini-lp replica is
perfect reproduction of the original album from 1977...if your a fan
and can get your hands on this one...you will be glad you did!

Well it's been a long time since is 1989 "Heart Shaped World"

Chris is a mature profesional musician now and even more on stage...

This dvd capture it on the 13th of february 2012, before a fans audience

but this special showcases is a tribute to the legendary Sun Studio in Memphis
and it's deeply rooted music...Isaak style!

5.0 out of 5 stars The Song Remains The Same..., Nov. 21 2012
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
Just a little bit older...and so are we! it took five years to finally
have the pleasure to see it at last...and never to be seen again.
that's is the last chapter with any new material from Led Zep...and it's
the same for the Rolling Stones this year too.

So, cherish those moments like the last day on earth...now, with the deluxe
edition here is what I think; very nice in everyway and not too expensive
for the value offer here; 2 cd's/ 1 blu-ray and a standard bonus dvd of the
rehearsals 4 days before the main concert at the 02 arena in London.

the bonus dvd is not in HD and in LPCM stereo only...and it's like being seated in the 50th row on the floor of the arena with tech and people walking in front
of you (or the camera in this case...). So, better off turning your TV off,
and listen to it from your stereo sound system.

The blu-ray is so perfect in picture quality, that I have re-order it in
standard dvd !...just not use to see Led Zep in HD, anyway the sound quality
in dts-hd master audio 5.1 is just amazing...but, where I found the best sound
is with the audio cd only...more use to listen to Led Zep, then to see them
play live.

As for the set list...well we all wish for our favorite songs(like "thank you &
moby dick") who would have made a nice tribute to John Bonham perform by is son
Jason...who is just like a kid having is dream come true, to play with the Masters.

Celebration Day (3 Lp Vinyl Package) [180g Vinyl Lp] records will also be available
and released on february 12th, 2013...for those who have "The Song Remains The Same"
on Lp...Thanks!

Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This new Aerosmith album is just great rock music...
lot of people complain about this and that...but just
listen to it, will reveal the great experience those
Boston guys have in making rock happen...beat's a lot
of crap out there anyway...Jack Douglas back in producing
the album with Aerosmith just like 70's again...enjoy!
