Is this the first commercial bootleg video that was released? I'm not sure but I think I've heard that before. I haven't seen a full copy of this video posted anywhere previously. I have seen parts of it available on other DVD's (in possibly better quality and some worse quality) but I've never seen this VHS tape complete as it was released THEN - the one that maybe got the ball rolling for Led Zeppelin video boots (at least for me)...

The actual VHS cassette that I've owned since I bought it from Collector's R.P.M. in Vancouver (I think) has seen not that many plays to wear the tape out that much, but it has had a couple of bad encounters with hungry machines. There is a small glitch or two somewhere in the hour of video. They are small, and don't last for more than a second. I can't remember where they are. The HiFi "stereo" tracking is pretty much spot on throughout, but also has a couple drops where the tape got some slight damage once... It's really not that bad at all, but I'm just telling you, there is a small flaw or two.

I've been wanting to do some video transfers for quite a while, but I just haven't had all the equipment in one place with any worthy videos. I bought myself a standalone DVD recorder at Value Village for Christmas, and the first thing I did was whip off this VHS tape straight onto a DVD-r. I used the "HQ" setting, a 1 hour speed for the DVD-r, which is the best quality this recorder can muster. I ran the composite video output signal from the Sony SLV-50 VHS deck into this video enhancer box I bought at a garage sale. It is a Video Vox "The Synchronizer" - it's made in Canada, and I can't easily find any information on it at all! It did seem to help stabilize the picture during the glitch, and helps some of my other videos in my collection too!

The transfer worked fairly better than I thought it would, but the standalone menus are always ugly. I used DVDReMake to change the title menu picture to something nicer. It looks better but it did kind of screw up the graphics of the selection box. If you hit enter it plays just fine. If you go "up" you still get the standalone info page! oops...

The original flimsy cardstock VHS slipcase kind of looked cool when it was newer. The lettering was more shiny gold than it is now. After only a short time of ownership, and so much wear to the box, I decided to take the cassette out of the box to store the cover safely. It was fun scanning it and photoshopping a foldout version that would involve cutting the box open to unfold it! I also scanned the actual VHS tape, with all the stickering that has happened to it. Notice the cut in the edge label where I've had to "operate" on the tape to minimize the damage that one nasty VHS deck did to it in the late 90's. There's also a scan of my old buddy Darren's handwritten list for the video. He was a great positive friend to have and very happy I had this video in my collection. He was a big snail-mail trader of bootleg videos in the late 90's just before all this interwebbs stuff happened! He was also an avid outdoors enthusiast and nature photographer and writer. He died in the woods hiking on the trails he loved. This release is dedicated to Darren.
