Queen performed ‘Bohemian Rhapsody’ for the first time during this tour. Spirits were high within the band for this show; ‘Bohemian Rhapsody’ was enjoying its fourth week at No. 1 and ‘A Night At The Opera’ was climbing the album charts on its way to No 1, which it achieved three days after this concert. The show was simulcast live on both BBC Radio 1 and ‘The Old Grey Whistle Test’ television show on BBC 2; the programmer s host Bob Harris introduced the band on stage.

One of the world’s biggest and best live bands release an incredible document of their return to Madison Square Garden, New York City’s most iconic venue. 19 years to the day after the band first performed there, they returned to the same stage for the last date of their historic Lost Highway tour, officially the biggest tour on the planet in 2008. Created by award winning Director, Anthony M. Bongiovi and shot with 23 High Definition cameras, Live From Madison Square Garden features a career spanning set list including “Have A Nice Day”, “Always”, “Wanted Dead Or Alive”, “Livin’ On A Prayer” and even a cover of Leonard Cohen’s “Hallelujah” that Cohen himself rates as his favourite version. This is a snapshot of a band 25 years into a record breaking career and still hitting their peak in the live arena.

The Blu-ray version contains a special extra, filmmaker Phil Griffin’s recently released Bon Jovi documentary When We Were Beautiful. Following the band on 2008’s world tour and panning back through their history, it is a fascinating insight into the workings, art, camaraderie, ups and downs of a truly megastar rock band.

Originally filmed in December 1968, “The Rock and Roll Circus” was originally intended to be released as a television special. The special was filmed over two nights and featured not only the Rolling Stones but The Who, Jethro Tull (with future Black Sabbath guitarist Tommy Iommi filling in for the recently departed Mick Abrahams), Marianne Faithful and an all-star jam featuring John Lennon, Eric Clapton, Keith Richards and Mitch Micthell. Sadly, this also marked the final appearance of the Stones founder and original guiding light, Brian Jones, who would be dead within six months after filming the special.

The Rolling Stones Rock And Roll Circus has received a 4K Dolby Vision restoration of the concert film on Blu-Ray.
Stunning 4K restoration performed in Dolby Vision and Dolby Atmos Sound. First time on Blu-Ray – now with Dolby ATMOS.
The show also featured performances from The Who, Jethro Tull, Taj Mahal, Marianne Faithfull, Yoko Ono, as well as ‘supergroup’ The Dirty Mac – consisting of Eric Clapton, Keith Richards, Mitch Mitchell of The Jimi Hendrix Experience and John Lennon. Unheard tracks by the collective are available on this release for the first time ever.

This director’s cut of Woodstock: 3 Days of Peace & Music, released to coincide with the 40th anniversary of that legendary concert event, has to be one of the most impressive Blu-ray releases of 2009 or any other year–and that’s even before you put the discs in your player. The box is designed to resemble a faux fringe jacket (with an iron-on patch attached), and inside are all manner of shiny bells and whistles, including a lucite paperweight with images from the event, a reprint of LIFE Magazine’s original festival feature, and reproductions of various Woodstock memorabilia, right down to notes left by concertgoers (“Please meet me in front of stage. I have your insulin pills”) and a three-day ticket to the event. And hey, if you’re looking for subtitles in Finnish, Thai, or Polish, you’ve come to the right place.

The movie itself now weighs in at nearly four hours long, and is presumably the way director Michael Wadleigh wanted it in the first place. The Blu-ray transfer is definitely an upgrade, as is the soundtrack, which was originally recorded on 8-track tape under less-than-ideal conditions. (Using modern digital technology, audio engineer Eddie Kramer, who was hunkered down in what passed for a recording booth at the Woodstock site, has painstakingly restored the soundtrack–even bringing in some of the musicians to re-play their original parts, as on Santana’s “Evil Ways,” one of the previously unreleased bonus performances. Considering that the event is something of a sacred cow by now, this trick may strike some as blasphemous. Then again, this is hardly the first time that a live concert recording has been sweetened, re-recorded, or otherwise enhanced. In fact, it’d be hard to find one that wasn’t. And the additions would have gone largely unnoticed if we hadn’t been told about them.) In the end, though, there’s only so much improvement possible, and Woodstock was never about technical brilliance anyway. Nor was it mostly about the music, either. Nor was it mostly about the music, either. There are some terrific performances, from acoustic numbers by Richie Havens and Crosby, Stills & Nash to powerful electric contributions from Santana, Sly & the Family Stone, and Joe Cocker. But the truth is that Monterey Pop, which happened two years earlier, was the more exciting concert, and of the several artists who appeared on both bills (including Jimi Hendrix, Janis Joplin, the Who, Jefferson Airplane, and others), all of them made better music at the California festival. But Woodstock was always less a concert than an overall cultural happening, and Wadleigh and his crew, often employing an effective split-screen technique, do a superb job of corralling and conveying the remarkable atmosphere and spirit of it; you didn’t have to be there to recognize that this was the zenith of the Age of Aquarius (it was also the twilight; with Altamont looming, things would never be this peaceful and idealistic again).

Of principal interest on the second disc will be two hours of additional musical performances, including both additional tunes by those who are in the main feature and appearances by five artists who for various reasons (ego, money, quality, time) never made it into the film at all; of the latter, Creedence Clearwater Revival is excellent, Paul Butterfield and Johnny Winter are good, Mountain is mediocre, and the Grateful Dead, with an interminable (38 minutes!) “Turn on Your Love Light,” are awful (a special Blu-ray-only feature lets users organize this material as they see fit). Meanwhile, “From Festival to Feature,” a new, hour-long look at the making of the movie, is absorbing and minutely detailed. –Sam Graham

Deluxe two CDs + Blu-ray edition. The Palladium in Worcester, MA has been the site of so many memorable and iconic Killswitch Engage shows throughout the band’s twenty-two year history. Whether it was their very first show in 1999, their live DVD performance in 2005, countless New England Metal & Hardcore Fests, and of course Jesse Leach’s first show back in 2012, the band and the venue will always have a special bond. So in mid-summer 2021, after being off the road and away from each other for over 15 months (due to the pandemic), it only made sense that The Palladium be the reunion site for a very special streaming event! This performance features KsE’s latest album Atonement and a “back to their roots” performance of their very first self-titled album. With some surprises along the way, Killswitch Engage presents: Live at the Palladium.

Black Label Society, formed in the late nineties by legendary guitar hero Zakk Wylde, have established themselves at the forefront of heavy metal with a series of hard riffing and hugely successful albums alongside worldwide tours that have cemented their reputation as one of the most powerful live bands of their generation. Unblackened finds Black Label Society in a mellower mood in a performance filmed at Club Nokia in Los Angeles earlier this year. The concert showcases the band’s songs with a greater use of acoustic instruments but without losing any of their power and intensity. Zakk Wylde leads from the front as always, performing here on both guitar and piano and demonstrating the subtler side of his music alongside the blistering solos that his fans know and love. This is definitely a live concert not to be missed!

From Emperor Media Ltd. and acclaimed producer/director Jon Brewer, music icon David Bowie narrates this unprecedented celebration of the life and works of guitar virtuoso Mick Ronson – a rock hero virtually unknown despite his direct contribution and involvement in countless compositions, lyrics and recordings that changed the face of music forever.
His humble beginnings in Hull, England underpinned the values and modest, unpretentious personality of Mick Ronson, who worked with the city’s council while he pursued his craft with consummate dedication. Soon word of his talent reached David Bowie, who grabbed at the chance to work with Ronson, in what would become a career-long association, alongside collaborations with other greats such as Bob Dylan, Ian Hunter, Lulu and Lou Reed.
The Man Who Sold the World, Aladdin Sane, Hunky Dory, The Jean Genie – all were constructed with Ronson on guitar.
Sadly in 1993, while working on a solo album, Ronson passed away before receiving the recognition he so richly deserved or before taking that final bow. Now, with unprecedented access to archival backstage footage – never before released – and iconic imagery from superstar photographer Mick Rock, this fascinating and at times controversial special reveals the ultimate authentic chronicle of the career of a cornerstone of rock.

Bonus interview footage from Angie Bowie, Rick Wakeman, Glen Matlock, Cherry Vanilla, Ian Hunter, David Stopps and more!

Renée Fleming, Dresden Staatskapelle, Christian Thielemann – Anton Bruckner: Symphony No. 7 & Hugo Wolf: Lieder (2012) Blu-ray 1080i AVC DTS-HD 5.1

The Dresden Staatskapelle has a Bruckner tradition that stretches back more than a century and is now lovingly curated by its new music director, Christian Thielemann – himself a powerful advocate for the composer’s symphonies. The Seventh, whose Adagio was shaped by news of Wagner’s death in Venice, is paired with songs of Hugo Wolf, who was also deeply affected by that news. Wolf’s songs, can be seen as oblique reflections on the influence of Wagner, especially when sung, as they are here by Renee Fleming, with the utmost delicacy and intimacy.

Hugo Wolf:
Verbogenheit
Er ist’s
Elfenlied
Anakreons Grab
Mignon (2nd version)
