Hello Hello!!

Hi again. @ 04:09 pm

sheepzeit:
Yes, I know I just posted but I have a valid question this time.

I mentioned in my previous post that I dug up my collection of the more obscure U2 videos. That included most (if not all) the videos that were released outside of the major VHS collections (Red Rocks, Unforgettable Fire, etc). A friend made it for me about... 6 or 7 years ago, and the quality was never great to begin with, but when I was watching it yesterday I saw that it was still steadily decreasing. Of course I don't know what happened to this friend so I can't ask her to make me another copy.

So, where would I be able to obtain newer copies of these videos? Should I look on Ebay or something for people who are willing to sell them? Are there new video collections out that may include these? (I haven't kept up with U2 media other than albums in a few years) I'm talking all the videos pre-1984, and obscure ones like "In the Name of the Father," "Night and Day," "Spanish Eyes," and such. I got the tape ummm pretty soon after Passengers was released so there was nothing newer than "Miss Sarejevo" on it.

One day I'll sit and make a listing of every video on there. I suspect my tape doesn't have much more life in it and I really would like to have better copies of these on hand.

I know Spanish Eyes was on u2.com a while ago. Do you care if they are on VHS or computer CD?

I know that MTV did U2 videos from A-Z some time ago and that alot of people taped it. Maybe the videos you want are on there, but since I didn't tape it, I have no idea.

Dang it. I think it's blasphemy they can release such wonderful visuals and NOT share them with their fans.

I don't care what format they're in, although the more I think about it, computer media would be more reliable. Ah, the hunt is on....

Well, I would go through the tape and find out what videos you have and want. Then make another post with the list and perhaps someone can copy them all onto a CD for you.l
