What’s your favorite concert DVD? If I had to pick just one it would be The Song Remains The Same by Led Zeppelin. Jimmy Page does some real good improvisational solos on that and the whole band just sounds great. The fantasy sequences were like a precursor to MTV - definitely ahead of their time.
Another DVD I like a lot is Rainbow Live In Munich 1977. They also play longer variations of their studio recordings and both Ritchie and Ronnie James are in top form. I prefer Ritchie’s live playing to his studio playing. He’s a master at improvising.
Judas Priest’s “Live Vengeance '82” is another concert that shows the band in its top form and they play all their classic songs on this one. That was the tour where Iron Maiden opened for them on their Number Of The Beast tour. What a great double bill!
