What classic concert videos need to be released on DVD?

When I browse the music DVD racks these days, I'm usually disappointed that if there is a concert DVD from an artist I enjoy, it's usually something recent and thus often (but not always) less enticing. There are some terrific classic concert videos out there that I'd love to see on DVD. I'm thrilled that "Rust Never Sleeps" made it, and now I want to see...

Dire Straits - Alchemy - one of those concert videos that I still watch at least once a year. This would be my top choice.

Elton John - Live in Australia (1987) with the Melbourne Symphony - this is one that I've never seen, but I have the CD and it's great.

The Cure in Orange - a vital concert that's available on VHS, laserdisc and Video CD... but not DVD!

U2 Live at Red Rocks - Under a Blood Red Sky - I'm not as much into U2 as I was when this came out, but I'd still like to see it on DVD.

The Revolting Cocks - You Goddamned Son of a Bitch - I have a copy somewhere, but I sure don't know where it is. Enjoyable, and great songs too. This is my "would love it, but it'll never happen" selection. (But then, I never thought we'd see Skinny Puppy's Aint it Dead Yet on DVD either.)

What are some of your choices?

10,000 Maniacs - MTV Unplugged - I used to have it on VHS. Wish I'd kept it.

I wouldn've dreamed I'd see a Psychic TV concert - but it's coming out in December - Black Joy

I second Urgghh A Music War - that is so friggin' cool, it hasn't been on video since the 70's - let's add additional foogage!

Tom Waits' Big Time

Also Bob Dylan's Renaldo & Clara - though that's more than just a concert movie

These aren't classics, but I'd like to see more complete episodes of MTV Unplugged, Sessions at West 54th, Austin City Limits, & maybe some of those 70s shows I've never seen (Don Kirshner, etc & the shows from Britain & Germany). No more best of compilations.

Oh yeah. It would be really cool if this came out with the show they taped a month before as a bonus.

I'd also like to see Neil Young's Freedom - but it's short so I'd love an expanded edition or combined with a collection of videos or something.

The Velvet Underground reunion video from 93 (I think). I've never seen it. Or maybe some Lou Reed - like the live video of New York or something...

Here, here! Hear, hear! I was thinking the exact same thing.

There was also an old Paul Di'Anno era Iron Maiden concert I remember having on a Beta tape from the MAIDEN JAPAN tour I believe... that would be too cool.

Whatever happened to BLACK AND BLUE, the BOC/Sabbath concert movie that was supposed to be on DVD earlier this year?

Was there ever a video of this? I did see a copy of "Recital of the Script" on the Tower shelf today, at least that's out.

at one point....there had to been. I watched it at a friends house in 1989 on tape. dont remember anything about the tape really..except it did have nice artwork on the case cover. never saw it again after moving away and have never seen it for sale anywhere. I'd love to have it though!! I might check out the one you mention...hope it's vintage stuff.

They were working on remastering this for theatrical/DVD years ago but I have no idea what happened. The source material was pretty rough, I believe.

And Nirvana UNplugged is surely lost in Courtney-hell but it's a must.

I'd heard back in the spring that the DVD was to be out this Fall, but still haven't heard a word.

Great News on the Psychic TV release in December. I was not aware of this.

I will second Tom Waits - Big Time, such a great film.

Wouldn't mind the Maiden Japan era Iron Maiden concert and/or Live After Death.
