This upload consists of videos I recorded off of cable TV using two Sony SLHF-900 Super Beta Hi-Fi VCR's & two Mitsubishi U-70 S-VHS Hi-Fi VCR's.
I would tape the entire show (Saturday Night Live, Tonight Show, etc.) and then transfer the music performances to the other VCR for archiving. Some performances may be 1st gen and not tape to tape.
The first six volumes of this unauthorized series of Dave Clark Five CD reissues contain everything from the 12 non-compilation LPs the group issued in the U.S. between 1964-1968, as well as everything from the four U.K. LPs (never issued in the U.S.) that followed in 1969-1972. The seventh and final volume contains 25 tracks that somehow didn't find a place on any of those LPs.
Keep an Eye on the Sky is a 4-CD, 98-song career retrospective box set from American rock group Big Star. It features 52 unreleased tracks: demos, alternate takes and live performances. As well as material from founder member Chris Bell's earlier bands Rock City and Icewater, it includes all titles (in many cases as alternate mixes or demos) from Big Star's first three studio albums, #1 Record, Radio City, and Third/Sister Lovers, and a recording of a 1973 Big Star concert.
This DVD features a short documentary about the history of the band. Alvaro Fella, Daniele Bianchini and Aldo Gargano talk about the beginnings of "Jumbo's adventure" and the Italian prog rock scene of the early seventies while some excerpts from "DNA" and "Vietato ai minori di 18 anni?" are in the background (the dialogs are in Italian with English subtitles). You can see also many old pictures that can give you an idea of the "halcyon days" of the band. An unplugged version of "La strada porta al fiume", from Jumbo's debut album closes the first part of the DVD.
The second part features some live excerpts from a concert in 1995. Many tracks are taken from the most recent albums ("Folle corsa", "La mia vita", "Bella & finta", "Metropolis" and "Lakota"). Nothing special indeed, although the final track, a long and original version of "Suite per il sig. K." is absolutely worth listen to.
The DVD ends with some short excerpts from a live performance in Paris in 1990…
