Live at Pompeii- yes because

1. I love the scenery.

2. I love the music.

3. I've watched it nearly a hundred times, and never yawned once.

TSRTS no because:

1. The editing sucks- take a look at John Paul Jone's stage outfits on various songs and you'll see one minute he's wearing a white shirt, the next a jacket, back to the white shirt, etc.

2. It's depressing- filmed all over the East Coast with pregnant teenagers and tough cops.

3. Robert's character role takes up 2 songs. Yawn.

ps- if I have room for only one dvd, then how much room do I have for a player?

Wouldn't worry about it, nowhere to plug it in, hehe!

TSRTS, Pompeii bored me to tears even though I love the Floyd, go figure!

It's not worth trying to compare these two bands because of their hugely differing styles

...BUT Led Zeppelin are streets ahead in every possible way bar none.

It's not surprising that TSRTS wins the poll - this is a Led Zeppelin forum!

The music is, of course, very good on the TSRTS, and it's great to be able to watch them in concert, but Live At Pompeii wins it for me. It was filmed much better, the sound is better.... and Pink Floyd were just as great as Zep were, just in a different sort of way. Plus, LAP includes short interviews, which are interesting.

I have never seen the PF film, but given the huge disappointment I felt with TSRS, I would go with the Floyd one.

Plus I'd have something new to see on this desert island, versus something I already saw!!

The wonderful thing about the Pink Floyd film, is that you get to see them in a studio setting.... something that LZ never filmed for their fans to ever see....

As mentioned earlier, TSRTS was special, before there was much else available. Even without Floyd members being as animated as Zep, the Pompeii movie is much better (if you like the bands equally). I really enjoyed seeing Gilmour's guitar work in "Echoes".

I don't care for any of the Pink Floyd stuff before Dark Side, so it's a no-brainer, TSRTS. Side story, I actually saw the SRTS in a movie theatre when it was out here in the States. we had some herbal refreshments in the parking lot, before entering the movie theatre. :bravo:

I'm not anything even vaguely resembling a Floyd fan, so this was a no-brainer for me!

I love them both but for different reasons and for different moods. I will go with TSRTS just because the music is more exciting and I love the pregnant teenagers and the cops. Plus those three stoner dudes who get backstage are hilarious.

TSRTS is just more fun and encapsulates the concert performance and experience better. Pompeii is filmed much better and the music is trippy as hell which I love but...no pregnant teenagers? C'mob, they were in Italy for chrissakes, they have at least 20 of them in every small village out there.

The opening of Pompeii with the very slow zoom into the band playing one of the best versions of Echoes is amazing, probably one of the most cinematic openings to any rock movie.  That entire Echoes is incredible.

Floyd are ok. I have a lot of respect for them. I have not seen this dvd. But i think everyone could bet their life on me choosing the Zep one if i did happen to view the Floyd one. This is because i am a Zep fan.
