Great Music Video DVD's

I'm very surprised that artists/groups aren't releasing their music videos as companions when they release Greatest Hits of their music.

Bruce Springsteen has a nice DVD collection of his videos, and Madonna has them out, too. I would like to see a video compilation of the following artists/groups:

1) Elton John
2) Nirvana
3) Guns 'N Roses
4) Megadeth
5) Pop/rock hits of the 1980's
6) Pop/rock hits of the 1990's

Anybody have clues or information?

Fyi...the madonna ones ain't so hot. They're incomplete and the Immaculate Collection has horrible video quality. Just a port over from the VHS/laserdisc version.

Supposedly all of that will change after her next tour...when there will be a huge boxed set marking over 20 years in the music biz.

Smashing Pumpkins 1991-2000 is excellent if you're a fan of their music.

Beastie Boys Criterion is the best music video collection overall.
U2 1990-2000 is pretty good, but unfortunately the sound is only 2.0. (my 19 mo old daughter loves this dvd and is always asking to watch "Ahh-too" )
George Michael and Billy Joel have very nice video compilations, if you're interested in 80's and 90's pop.

I like Dave Matthews Band Live at Folsom Field. Great sound quality and an interesting presentation overall.
On the other hand, avoid the new Alanis Morissette DVD at all costs. Pixellation seems to occur in spots throughout, and they constantly change the audio source during songs. They'll go from a great sound to something that sounds like a fan taped it on a pocket tape recorder. It's really irritating.

The Brian Setzer Orchestra live in Japan!

I got this for Christmas, and I've watched at least a song or two just about every day. This whole concert is just sooooooo amazingly cool! I'm more of a punk/new wave fan as opposed to big-band music, but Brian Setzer's unbelievably awesome guitar playing is in the forefront of every song----this is just an incredibly rich, fun, rockin' show----highly recommended!! (Great sound, too!)

I have The Doors Collection, and it's a pretty thorough overview of their history.

I'm also fond of Happy Together:The Story of the Turtles, which is a combination of their videos and documentary.

Movin' With Nancy starring Nancy Sinatra is pretty easy on the eyes.

Bingo. Was waiting for someone to mention this one. It is definately an incredible DVD. The sound on this has to be one of the best ones i've heard for a music concert DVD. The surround sound signal is used extensively.

I have a fair few of those mentioned. Here's some more.

The Best Of Blur. Some truly loopy and innovative videos. Much like the Smashing Pumpkins, Blur tried to be 'arty' with their videos, with mixed results. Just videos here, but I'm not complaining.

Oasis - Live By The Sea. An early concert video - 1995, I believe - capturing them at their best.

Massive Attack - Eleven Promos. The epitome of a bare bones disc, but oh, what a nice collection.

Robbie Williams - Angels. Only a few videos BUT IT'S ROBBIE WILLIAMS!

England, thankfully, realizes that people can like more than one band's videos on one disc. So I love my Now 2001, The BRIT Awards(2001 and 2002) and The Best Of Louise. The Best Of Kylie, profiling here early videos, is on order. Joy of joys!

Another vote for The Beasties, although would of been nice if they had included "Fight For Your Right" and other songs from that album.

HEhe I agree. IMO the best live performance video released (that I have seen anyway.)

I wish he would release Closure now! It was so close last year...

Smashing pumpkins set is awesome too.

I also highly recommend.

- U2 Elevation Tour (fantastic audio and video)
- Pearl Jam Touring Band (great audio, a few videos including the Oceans video!)
- Down From The Mountain (not the fan of this type of music, however, I found it very interesting and appreciating the music much more after seeing them perform live, discuss the songs etc. Highly recommend to anybody who likes music off O' Brother Where Art Though)
