Since I got the 4430's, I have really enjoyed re-listening to some of my favorite music DVD's. Tonight I watched/listened to The Last Waltz. As it says in the beginning, "THIS MOVIE SHOULD BE PLAYED LOUD!" It was a new experience for me through the 4430's! Wish there were DVD's when I had the 250ti's for comparison. Here are my 5 favorite music DVD's for what it's worth.
1. The Last Waltz
2. Eric Clapton Live at Hyde Park
3. Led Zeppelin
4. Black and White Night with Roy Orbison
5. John Fogerty, Premonition
I have other music DVD's but these are at the top of my list. I would be interested in other suggestions.

One of my favorites is Andrea Bocelli's Tuscan Skies (Cieli di Toscana) from 2001. Truly beautiful.

There are a lot of good DVDs out now. I concur with your list, that Clapton disc is especially good. I've been playing more DVDs than regular CDs lately. More of my favorites:
Steely Dan, Two Against Nature
Frampton, Live in New York
Stevie Ray Vaughan, Montreaux
Yes, House of Blues
Cream, Royal Albert Hall.

Hi Don,
I have The Cream DVD which I got for Christmas but haven't taken time to watch it yet. It will probably be next. Another I like that I forgot to mention is Paul McCartney, "Live at the Cavern Club." I'm a big fan of David Gilmore and Ian Paice, not to mention Sir Paul! The band I'm currently in liked the song, "No Other Baby", so much, we added it to our play list.

I have to buy every Bocelli disc I see, just to please the wife,:D but it's nice to see that my JBL's sound great no matter the style they are playing.:applaud:

I wonder if the varnish is dry yet on my second K-12?? (these are another of the WFA projects. The first set without an industrial finish in my collection...:p

I want to ad The Old Grey Whistle Test DVD. It's various performances from a BBC show from the early 70's to the early 90's. Raw live performances from Elton John to Capt. Beefheart to Edgar Winter to The Police and everything in between. Something for everyone and most of it is great stuff!!!

That is a very good DVD. On whistle test, there is an early Talking Heads performance of "Psycho Killer" that is, well, killer!

Osnob, I especially dig that chick playing the Fender Mustang bass. She's great!

I have to throw in something JBL on this topic. On one shot, you can the orange basket JBL's in David Byrne's Twin Reverb, very cool. Are those D120's? I bet the bass player has some sort of JBL 15" in her cabinet that almost looks homemade.:hmm:

I saw it at Best Buy - but Amazon has it as well - the 2 DVD version is at

Last night we watched Bela Fleck and the Flecktones Live at the Quick
(rental from Netflicks). Very fine concert with a multi-talented group of fusion style performers ... Bluegrass meets Chick Corea, sort of ... very nice show from 2002.

Cream, Royal Albert Hall 2005 is a great DVD. I got it yesterday and spent last evening watching it. Great quality and perfomances by Clapton, Bruce and Baker. Excellent audio track and very enjoyable performances.

All three show why they are legends. Ginger Baker even does a drum solo:applaud: that lacks a little dexterity but is never the less impressive for a guy his age. I only hope....

This is a keeper and will put a smile on your face, guaranteed.

Great observations Ken, those guys can still PLAY! I dug out the old Blind Faith album after watching The Cream DVD. Ginger Baker's solo on "Do What You Like" is masterful! Urban legend has it that it was done on one take, the first take!

Clapton is right on when it comes to power trios. All three have to step up their game to make it work. I just wish Jack Bruce would have used a comb or brush or something!
