Dear Skot,
Are you going to be a goose all your life?

For starters:

Amadou & Mariam - Paris Bamako. Filmed live outdoors in a beautiful small square in Paris, this is one of my favourite live dvd's. If you enjoyed their shows at fest some years ago, then I guarantee you'll love this.
Talking Heads - Stop Making Sense. Simply magnificent, say no more.
Tom Waits - Romeo Bleeding (live in Austin - 1978). It's Tom in concert, what more can I say? However, it may be difficult to get hold of it (I got mine in New Orleans).
Dancing to New Orleans - a great introduction to the music of Louisiana with priceless live performances by the late John Campbell and the also late Clarence 'Gatemouth Brown'. You should be able to pick this up for $10 at any JB Hi Fi store. A bargain.

Amazon is as good a place as any to buy them - I have bought all of mine at stores, but then we're blessed in bleak city to have Basement Discs. Unfortunately, Louisiana Music factory in New Orleans, which has some wonderful rare dvd's, doesn't do mail deliveries outside of the US or Canada

There are a number of services which provide for you to have mail redirected from a dummy US address to your real address. American Express used to offer a free service through http://www.borderlinx.com/AU/en/ but I haven't ever used it.

I usually use Amazon UK as their delivery times are generally much quicker than the US store, and they drop the tax when ordering. Recommend:
Martin Scorsese presents the Blues
King Crimson Deja Vrooom
Festival Express
Brian Setzer Orchestra Live in Japan
Monterey Pop (Criterion Collection - so probably only available from US store)
Elvis Costello & the Imposters Live in Memphis
Roy Orbison Black & White Night

When you guys order DVD's from Amazon US....is there an issue with the Region Code (ie US DVD's can't be played on Australian set ups) or is that not an issue anymore?

Most DVD players are region free these days but not all.
Best way round it is to use a simple hack.(perhaps only use on an old or very cheap DVD as it will void the warranty)

Power on.
Open tray.
Push the info on remote once (with supplied remote). You will see numbers.
Press 9 for multi-region. Keep trying until you see the number 9 appear in upper left corner.
Power off.
Power on.

Simple & quick but works best on cheapo models so may be best to try on an old second model you may have as a spare.

I went to see David Bowie at the Caketin in Welington on 18/02/04.
That was just before my first Bluesfest.
I decided I needed a DVD player so instead of driving home from the airport,went into Dunedin to a specialist HIFI shop called Totally Wired.
I am not into expensive gear and know nothing of electronics, and I have come across some people who are but their music collections are pathetic.
There may be some wealthy people who have both but I have yet to meet any of them.
I wanted something that was more than basic but not princely.
I came away with a 2003 Harmon Kardon DV25 which is a multi region player.
A US online review grades this product as 3 stars out of 5 retail priced at $349US at the time.
It has played every DVD I have asked it to deal with,but after 10 years finally needs its first ever maintenance which will cost $230NZ.
There is one on sale on EbayUk at present for $50US.It is made in China.
The back of mine just gives the US base.
I am not familiar with Bluerays but it appears that today what people buy is Blueray players which also read DVDS,or Home Theatre systems.

I have recently purchased the Laser 3D BluRay player (BLU-BD10803D) that is automatically region free for DVD out of the box and allows you to change the region codes on BluRay discs as well (resets once switched off, so must be set each time unless playing region B discs which are UK and Australia). It will set you back around $100 from Topbuy.com.au and gives an excellent image and audio - it even up-scales DVDs I believe.

The only issue I have found is that it doesn't cope with 3D discs using 48fps (frames per second), but that's not too big an issue as most 3D blurays are set at 24fps and they have told me they are now working on a fix.

Thanks for opening the thread Waffles.
Give that there are wide variations in musical taste of the various readers of this forum,recommendations can only be made as such and are subject to individual research.
I will certainly follow up on all of Pete's list and I am overdue to buy a copy of the Warren Haynes DVD as mentioned by Skot.
I endorse Hardtrack's list of the various Scorcese Blues DVDs
I have played the Setzer Live in Japan DVD numerous times.
In my opinion this is the best available demonstration of his guitar skills,which are insufficiently showcased within a pure rockabilly set.

An oldie but a goodie...contains a fantastic version of 'Knocking on Heaven's Door"
Not the person himself of course but the cream of Aussie Rock at the time.

It is a selection from my DVD Cupboard.
I have been discerning.
For example I have included Iggy in Paris but I have not included Iggy & The Stooges Live at the Lockerse Festival 2005,despite the fact that the Paris DVD includes no original Stooges,simply because I believe that Paris is the better live show.

The Last Waltz is a must own!

Any of Eric Clapton's Cross roads DVDs are great

Santana - Sacred Fire

Rust Never Sleeps - Neil Young and Crazy Horse

Eddie Vedder - Water on The Road

Bob Dylan - No Direction Home ( a doco but a good one)

When you're lost in the rain in Juarez
And it's Eastertime too
And your gravity fails
And negativity don't pull you through
Don't put on any airs
When you're down on Rue Morgue Avenue
They got some hungry women there
And they really make a mess outta you.

B. Dylan

Just working my way through the live DVD that was thrown in with the new Swans record. Shot very raw, but still a great document of the genesis of the new album (live cuts from the last 18 months including new songs being played ahead of their recording). Another argument in favour of "maximum volume equals maximise results".

I have the Johnny Cash tribute album.It was recorded about two weeks after the 2013 bluesfest When interviewed by Brian Wise, drummer Kenny Aranoff said he would be playing at the tribute. Whilst everyone contributed to a great concert, I thought the highlight was Carolina Chocolate Drops version of Jackson. They would be an excellent addition to the bluesfest lineup
