Dan Fogelberg's music occupies a plane somewhere between Jackson Browne's Classic Rock singer-songwriter stylings and the straight-up glitz of England Dan & John Ford Coley. There's no small amount of Crosby, Stills, and Nash in Fogelberg's music as well, but his primary focus was always on commercially viable pop craft as opposed to CSN's pot-headed artistic journeys. Fogelberg was a somewhat fringe figure throughout the 1970s, fostering a respectably-sized following until he sealed his festival-circuit status with a major hit in the 1980s called "Leader of the Band." After issuing a pair of records in the '90s that focused loosely on environmentalism and employed elements of world music, he returned to writing acoustic ballads for 2003's Full Circle. He quit performing after being diagnosed with advanced prostate cancer in 2004 and he passed away in December of 2007 at the age of 56.

Thank You Australia Concert
Runtime: 1 hr 52 minNeil Diamond is an American legend.

This concert from the Sydney Sports Stadium was the culmination of his Australia & New Zealand tour in 1976, an event which marked his comeback to the live stage after a creatively fruitful four year sabbatical from live performance.

Live at Shea Stadium
Runtime: 2 hr 21 minWith Beatlemania at its height in 1965, Shea Stadium in Queens, New York, was the site of the first stadium show ever by The Beatles, or any rock & roll band for that matter. The Beatles' Shea performances made an impression on a young working-class musician from Long Island named Billy Joel. When the Mets built a new stadium and said goodbye to Shea in 2008, the local native turned superstar was the logical choice to give it a proper sendoff.
The companion to the acclaimed documentary The Last Play At Shea, the premiere release of Billy Joel Live At Shea Stadium features a full concert-length program: more than two hours of hits, history, memories and guest stars including Paul McCartney, all in riveting performances worthy of the historic building where it all went down.

Live at Soundstage
Runtime: 54 minOne of the most loved bands in rock history, as well as one of the most commercially successful-with 50 hit songs in the U.S. alone, 18 gold records, a Grammy, and a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame Chicago have maintained the unflagging devotion of millions of devoted fans throughout their 37-year career. It began with the goal of incorporating the diverse musical range of their hometown Chicago, and incorporating the big-band aesthetic that included horns which had been virtually left behind in the world of rock and roll, Chicago went on to create a sound that remains unparalleled in rock music. Incorporating rock as only one genre among the many that they drew from, the band courageously rejected the trappings of celebrity in order for the music to stand on its own. This program documents a live show that was broadcast on PBS in June of 2003 where they play many of their hits from throughout their long career, including "25 or Six to Four," "You're the Inspiration," "Saturday in the Park," and "Beginnings," among many others.
