Fleetwood Mac The Dance is hard to beat and for Jazz I found Fourplay and Earl Klugh (DTS) to be most enjoyable.
A few other favorites in my collection
Eric Clapton - One more car one more driver
Eric Clapton - Unplugged
Kenny Logans - Outside from the redwoods
Talking Heads - Stop making sense
James Taylor - Live at the beacon theatre
Jackson Browne - Going Home
Roy Orbison - Black and white nights
Diana Krull - Live in Paris
Ottmar Liebert - Wide Eyed Dreaming
Ben Harper - Pleasure and pain (Documentary)
Just a heads up, when I want to impress vistors I will usually play the first scene from the movie Final Destination II. For music I go straight to Track 9,10 and 11 on The Fleetwood Mac DVD
I am not sure if this is your cup of angst or not ... but I am a big fan of Metallica's "S&M" (both the DVD & CD) ... their collaboration with the San Francisco Symphony Orchestra.
"Clover" and "Hero" are especially stunning examples of the powerful and majestic sounds that result with the combination of classical and metal musics.
Jethro Tull's "Living with the Past." It's like seeing the last tour all over again. The dvd is true to the latest song selection.
I also liked Midge Ure's "Rewind: the greatest hits tour." There are lots of new tracks but also some old favorites from Ultravox.
Both are a nice trip (or stumble) down memory lane.
If you are into Bluegrass then Alison Krauss new DVD is well recorded visually and audio wise (DTS) plus the musicianship is first rate IMO. No center channel though but with a good playback system you won't notice the difference. Another well recorded concert DVD is the Corrs Unplugged (No DTS). A bit dated (1999) but again well played and the audio and visual is as good as it gets for this type of music.
"The Allman Brothers Live at the Beacon Theater" (Oct 1st release) is my latest new standard music DVD. Culled from their annual series of shows at the Beacon Theater, New York, in 2003, this new "revived" band features wunderkind guitarist Derrick Trucks and returnee Wayne Haynes. Their guitar interply is the Allman Brothers best days with Duane and, yet, good enough to stand in their own right! The entire band is reinvigorated. The DVD production work - sound mix, visuals, and editing, are all first rate. If you love rock-blues guitar playing, jaw-dropping slide guitar work, and growling vocals, this is your disc. Add this recommendation to all the excellent earlier suggestions.
Bella Fleck was great if you like jazz banjo fusion(and I do) Bad company had a DTS sound track and was shot in widescreen (Neither mentioned on the cover) A very nice treat, all the band members were right on the mark and Paul Rogers never missed a beat! Queen was like a bad acid trip but the DTS sound track really kicked in, which made the flashback seem oh so real :^) I recommend all three to all you hard rockers
