I am not the biggest watcher of live concerts on dvds, but from the ones I have, it is probably the Pompei Concert from PF, and my copy of a genesis 1973 tour

It aint prog but would have to go with:

The Band - The Last Waltz

Genesis - Second's Out, saw this on film late 70's but never again apart from snippets on rereleases of other Genesis footage.

Dream Theater's Live at Budokan

It's a shaking dvd but maybe the set list could be better. I'm dribbling just to think in Sacrificed Sons/Octavarium recorded in that concert (what a pity) 

Anyway; Great image + great direction + great sound + great musicians = Great DVD.

Either Transatlantic - Live In Europe or Echolyn's Stars and Gardens

(I only have 200 Motels on VHS so I guess that doesn't count)

The one that came with Kansas Sail On (35th anniversary set).  Has some great videos of their early days on Kirshner's Rock Concert in the 70's.  Also shows what happens when good bands go 80's with some later MTV videos for Monolith and Vinyl Confessions.  Those are really sad, but overall the next best thing to having been able to see them live.

And a promo video of Genesis doing Fountains of Salmacis on BBC in 1971.  Crappy video really, but a really awesome snapshot of history.

While the video production may suck, I have to go with Yes Keys To Ascension. The performance and sound is incredible. I just watch the Tsongas DVD and while the video AND sound are great, their performance was lackluster. Sorry, but these guys are really starting to show their age. But it was good to see that they finally ditched that tired track Awaken (great track, but just sick of it) and slip in Ritual. But what the hell is with the fake drums and mechanical arms?

All in all, if Yes wants to breathe some fresh air back into their live shows, just for one tour can Rick and bring back Patrick and do some Relayer. What's it been, 30 years now?

Meet The Flower Kings. Quite boring to watch, except for the performance of mad percussionist Brunnionson and Gildenlow, who is quite busy singing and switching between guitar, percussion and keys.

However, the musicianship is so amazing that you keep watching to figure out how they do it. The extended 7 people line-up (3 vocalists, 3 guitarists, 2 keyboard players, 2 percussionists, and the best rhythm section in prog: Reingold/Czorcz) is able to produce such grandiose sounding renditions of their epic stuff. Highly recommended to TFK-haters. I converted one recently by lending him this DVD for a week.
