All Star List 
The Music DVD list below highlights the bands went the extra mile or perhaps the musical performance is legendary. 

We separated this elite list to bring to your attention what we consider top tier videos. Often DVD's packaging make them look more appealing than the results as they may lack features, fidelity, camera angles, or and have horrible cuts with interviews over the playing. More often, bands do just enough when making their videos, but could have done more, and those do not appear on the short list below. 

New music DVD releases - There have been numerous DVD releases recently. Some of now coming out in HD quality too. Here are some of interest. We are also catching up on others awesome music DVD's.

For the HD releases you need to have a player to read the discs. Wikipedia is a solid reference. Several of the items below are available in both HD or 5.1.

The Band on DVD

The Last Waltz  

The farewell performance of The Band was at The Winterland in San Francisco on Thanksgiving Day 1976. In 1978 the original Martin Scorsese film was released; remastered in 2002 with lots of bonus material. 

Sitting in with The Band on various songs through the evening is an all star list of musical legends, including Bob Dylan, Eric Clapton, Muddy Waters, and so many others. 

This concert is so legendary that it is still talked about today. If The Last Waltz is used as a litmus test to define rock videos, most would fall short. 

Please visit our Band section that has additional information about The Last Waltz.

Led Zeppelin  on DVD

Led Zeppelin DVD 

Led Zeppelin put more effort into producing the Led Zeppelin DVD than most bands put into making their videos. The positive result is apparent, as this earns our highest recommendation. This two-disc DVD offers four segments of essential live Led Zeppelin music plus lots of additional amenities. The primary performances are from four distinct periods of the bands career: 1970, '73, '75, and '79. The bonus material offers plenty of 1969 footage, interviews, more.

We have a full review of the Led Zeppelin DVD

Pink Floyd  on DVD

Pink Floyd Pulse 

This is an excellent DVD. Superb sound and visuals. Very generous quantity of music. The CD includes a few songs that are not on the DVD. I don't think that the post Waters material is great, but this pulls like a greatest hits from those discs on disc one along with a few other key tracks from Meddle, Wish You Were Here, and The Wall
