The Dave Matthews Band has been documenting its shows long enough to know what translates to the screen, and this disc, culled from 2002 tour stops at the Gorge Amphitheatre in Washington state, is a shining example of how live-concert DVDs should be shot: Viewers get not simply the house video-screen feed or endless close-ups but a mix of perspectives, edited in sync with the flow of the music. The sets are fairly straightforward, with the usual handful of DMB highlights. The highest: a dastardly rendition of "Pig."

    “Vicious”

    Lou Reed | 1972

    Opening Lou Reed's 1972 solo album, the hard-riffing "Vicious" actually traces its origin back to Reed's days with the Velvet Underground. Picking up bits and pieces of songs from the people and places around him, and filing his notes for later use, Reed said it was Andy Warhol who provided fuel for the song. "He said, 'Why don't you write a song called 'Vicious,'" Reed told Rolling Stone in 1989. "And I said, 'What kind of vicious?' 'Oh, you know, vicious like I hit you with a flower.' And I wrote it down literally."
