I have started to build a collection and really like the following:
Lyle Lovett Live
Springsteen Live in Dublin
Chieftains Down the Old Plank Road
Cindy Lauper Live - awesome Money Changes Everything!
Mark K and EmmyLou - Real Live Roadrunning
Stones - Shine a Light
Many others -hope there is a DVD of the Krauss/Plant tour
PS - I presume the best format for audio is PCM. What is LPCM and are any other formats good/bad?
Good suggestions above.
Try also Black Eyed Peas Live from Sydney to Vegas - the Sydney concert is excellent quality with Keith Harris doing an awesome job on drums. (This concert is very dynamic and can be played extremely loud - so it is NOT for weak hearted systems - the sound is far better than the studio highly compressed albums put out by BEP)
Another excellent one to get for your Wife is Robbie Williams Swing while your Winning Live concert at the Albert Hall. She will definitely enjoy this and sound quality is absolutely superb and the British musicians do it justice (even though by rights it should be Count Basie band out there like it is on the CD)
A classic is Queen Live at Wembley - although the stadium sound quality is not all that good, the band is in absolutle peak form.
Here are some of my favourites in no particular order:
Loreena McKennitt - Nights from the Alhambra - great picture and sound
Peter Gabriel - Growing Up Live - great picture and sound
Elton 60 - Live at Madison Square Gardens - great picture, sound, long concert with excellent songs choices, and a pile of bonus material
Diana Krall - Live in Paris (best of the Krall ones IMHO)
David Gilmour - In Concert (my favourite of the Gilmour DVDs). A little more stripped down. Awesome.
Pink Floyd - Pulse - excellent concert all the way around.
Keb' Mo' - Sessions at West 54th - great blues guy with guest appearance by Dr. John
Dave Matthews Band - The Central Park Concert - just a slight hair bright, but excellent music and quite dynamic
Roger Waters - In the Flesh Live - excellent all the way around.
James Taylor - Live at Beacon Theatre - still one of the benchmarks for sound and picture. His backup singers are amazing.
James Taylor - MusicCares Person of the Year Tribute - great performances by pile of guest artists and James as well
Jamie Cullum - Live at Blenheim Place. This young guy can play and sing pop styled jazz and standards in a unique and very entertaining way
Tony Bennett - MTV Unplugged - classic Tony done really well.
Van Morrison - Live at Montreux - Two discs with a concert from '74 and one from '80 (both have excellent music and really good sound for the time)
Ray Charles At the Olympia - good performance by Ray
Norah Jones - Live in New Orleans - solid performance if you like Norah's style
Oscar Peterson Trio '77 - Oscar with both Ray Brown and Niels Pederson trading off on bass - video quality is lacking, but sound quality really isn't too bad at all. But the musicianship is absolutely outstanding.
Sara K - Nautilus Tour 2002 - I have this on order from CDBaby and know it will be excellent as the CD from this session "Are We There Yet?" is absolutely stellar.
Eagles-Hell Freezes Over is excellent.
Eric Clapton- Live in Hyde Park is great with a lot of blues.
Shania Twain-Up Close & Personal. Intimate concert with Allison Krauss and Union Station for her back up band.
SRV- Live at Montreux 1982 & 1985. Great concerts. Watch the fools boo SRV.
Don Henley-Live Inside Job. Great sounding and very different from the Eagles concert.
Goo Goo Dolls- live in buffalo-Great concert and in the POURING rain.
David Gilmore- in Concert- Stripped down and absolutely wonderful.
