Brighton concert

Post by mcbride_r » Fri Jan 16, 2009 2:36 pm

Hi Folks,

A DVD of the Brighton, November concert is currently on Dimeadozen.
I don't have it yet so don't know how good it is - (that's quality of the video/audio NOT the performance!).

Ronnie


Here are some of his comments

"I acquired this DVD through a ‘trade’, but the authoring was (IMHO!) awful. I therefore reauthored it using TMPGEnc DVD Author 1.6.23.73 (chapters + animated menu).

That said, he did a pretty good job encoding the video and audio from the tapes.
Artwork (DVD case cover) is included in the torrent"

I have it. In fact, I'm uploading it! And I can say, hand on heart, it is effing brilliant! I may be slightly biased though because it was one of the concerts I attended from this tour.

I got the original DVD from that feller who advertised it for sale on youtube, which is an outrageous act, so I'm attempting to balance the worldly books by getting it out there for free. You should have your copy sometime tomorrow afternoon, at the current rate of progress.

Maybe we could set up some kind of postal distribution list for those who can't do the torrent thing....

Can we set up another Vine to copy and pass on this dvd? I've not the time or expertise to cope with these torrent things but I can copy discs and post to friends anywhere.

Yes,if a new vine is set up, please count me in as well.

I can now copy dvds myself instead of having to ask someone to do it for me so would be very happy to copy and post on.

gremmy,

To start a Vine you just list the names of whoever wants to be included in a posting here. You then post out the dvd to whoever is top of the list .(They send you their details by pm). Number one on the list then sends it to Number 2 and so on.You then only have to post out one disc.

Many thanks for the offer to send out copies

I HAVE JUST GOT HOLD OF A 2 CD AUDIO RECORDING OF MONCTON 23 5 2008. THE SOUND QUALITY IS EXCELLENT.IF YOU DON'T MIND PUTTING ME FIRST/EARLY ON IN THE VINE I CAN INCLUDE A COPY OF THE MONCTON CONCERT ALONG WITH YOUR DVD FOR EVERYONE ELSE IN THE VINE. (I WILL OBVIOUSLY SEND gremmy ONE AS WELL!)

I have been in touch with gremmy following his original post about this dvd, and I am happy to be part of, or start the vine. Like FOXWOOD, I could add a recording or two to the vine.

PLEASE also include me if you set up a vine for this.

I too could add a CD (of Oberhausen including The Partisan).

Thanks.
