I don’t know if any of you have seen this yet, but I just sat through it and figured I’d pass along a big ol thumbs up for this one.

The disk is High Def all the way. The image quality is outstanding and the audio has to be the best I have ever heard, including SACD. There’s three different audio tracks; 2 channel PCM at 48 Hz / 24 bit, 5.1 Dolby + at 96 Hz / 24 bit and a standard DD 5.1 track. I listened to the high rez 5.1 track and it’s simply outstanding. Not just clarity, but the mix is great, soundstage is very cool….

I’ve always liked Dave Mathews’ music when I hear it, but not enough to buy his CD’s for some reason. I’ve never listened to Tim Reynolds or even heard of him, come to think of it, but man can this guy play a guitar! I had no idea a guitar could make as many different sounds as this guy can make it do.

The disk is just Dave and Tim without a band. Tim plays his guitar and Dave plays his guitar and piano. Even if you don’t like Dave Mathews, I really don’t think anyone with any appreciation of talent and kick ass sound quality wouldn’t like this disk. This disk really makes these reputed “bright” Axioms come to life.

If anyone has any of Tim Reynolds' CD’s that they’d like to recommend, please do. I’ve got to hear more is his music….

Do you know when the concert was recorded? They did one that was on CD several years ago, and it's pretty phenomenal. Just the two of them.

I don't see a reference to the concert date on the disk anywhere. It's the "Live at Radio City Concert" disk. Is that the same one? The disk info says it was shot with nine different HD cameras, if that helps.

I think the cd you are thinking of is the Dave Mathew's Band "Live at Luther College" two disk set. It features Tim Reynolds in many of the songs. He is truly an amazing musician.

here is the track list:
All songs by David J. Matthews unless noted.


[edit] Disc one
"One Sweet World" – 5:43
"#41" – 5:37
"Tripping Billies" – 5:49
"Jimi Thing" » "What Will Become of Me?" – 8:13
"Satellite" – 4:39
"Crash into Me" – 5:33
"Deed Is Done" (Matthews, Reynolds) – 4:51
"Lover Lay Down" – 5:33
"What Would You Say" – 5:06
"Minarets" – 7:00
"Cry Freedom" – 5:39
"Dancing Nancies" – 7:15

[edit] Disc two
"Typical Situation" – 7:02
"Stream" (Reynolds) – 5:49
"Warehouse" – 9:17
"Christmas Song" – 5:24
"Seek Up" – 7:43
"Say Goodbye" – 5:19
"Ants Marching" – 5:26
"Little Thing" (Matthews, Reynolds) – 6:18
"Halloween" – 3:00
"Granny" – 3:22
"Two Step" – 6:34

the second song on the second cd (the yellow one) is a tim reynolds guitar solo- truly amazing

I think this was the first concert cd they put together, before the other one that was mentioned.

This would be a good cd to get for some more of Tim Reynolds music, but as you can see in the list most of the songs are Dave Mathew's band alone... I guess Tim Reynolds is only in 3 or 4 songs. However, any one who likes Dave Matthew's band should def. grab this cd.

EDIT: The cd says 1999 on it

Is the 2007 radio city concert only available on bluray?

I am still on the fence about which format to go for... I will def. grab this concert after I order my axioms... hopefully I will make up my mind about which HD format is right for me by then.

There is an older Dave Mathews and Tim Reynolds only recording. CD only I think. However, this is definitely a different concert. A whole different song lineup and a different stage.

I bought the DVD version. It's definitely the new MUST HAVE dvd for demoing voice and string clarity on speakers. Oh, and you will love the music too. Quiet a bit more laid back than when he does the full band.

Tim Reynolds blows you away as he makes complex pieces look so simple. I also discovered, at the end when he walks of the stage, that he is also either very very short or Dave is very very tall.

I also have to add that Dave's storys between songs are very entertaining but honestly, his speech and mannerisms remind me of someone who is autistic and I totally don't mean that in a joking or disrespectful way. It just honestly seems as if he is on some "chemical enhancement" or he is indeed autistic. Again, no disrespect intended, just an observation on his behaviorisms as he speaks. He is always a bit 'flamboyant' but just way more so in this concert I find.

I was wondering about Matthews myself.

I watched the BR disk again yesterday. Tim Reynolds guitar playing just blows me away. He makes enough sound for a complete orchestra. Plus, he can really pick those strings as fast as I've ever seen/heard. Even my 14 YO enjoyed watching him.

I made a mistake earlier. It's not DD+, but DD True HD. This is the only music disk / concert I'm aware of recorded at this bit rate.
