Are you talking about those weird pod looking things? Those are tops for nickel-hydrogen cells that form a high voltage battery when they are connected.http://216.10.25.192/vhlforum/smilies/smile.gif

It's never enough for you is it? Always wanting to know more more more.http://216.10.25.192/vhlforum/smilies/biggrin.gif

Seriously, I have no idea how those things came to be in the 1984 artwork. I remember when I first got the record in 1984 I thought they were drums. I know, stupid, but I was young then.http://216.10.25.192/vhlforum/smilies/smile.gif

i thought i saw on the vh faq's that those pod things were part of the 1984 lighting rig?

Here's a cut and paste from the VHML. I guess we'll have to decide for ourselves which story is true.http://216.10.25.192/vhlforum/smilies/smile.gif


The pods on the inside sleave are the back side of Par Cans (stage lights). The photo was taken by Gary Moderling. During the 1984 tour, all of the lighting rigs were chromed. In fact, all of the lighting operators wore silver jumpsuits during the show so they wouldn't stick out.

How'd they take the pictures for the record during the tour that followed?

Glenn, we gotta get you set up with an MP3 player. I'm sure if we all put our heads together we'll come up with 40 different solutions. What are the odds of all of us being wrong 40 times? http://216.10.25.192/vhlforum/smilies/biggrin.gif

About the mp3 situation. Damn, don't get me started. I'm hopeless. I've had Winamp downloaded and got rid of it because I couldn't figure out how to save the mp3's. I also tried downloading Napster but the whole sharing files thing got me paranoid. It would be cheaper on my sanity just to buy one of you guys a round trip ticket to come to my place and teach me this properly.http://216.10.25.192/vhlforum/smilies/biggrin.gif

Whoops. I did read that wrong. Put the cart in front of the horse, once again. http://216.10.25.192/vhlforum/smilies/smile.gif

Glenn, I think you can play MP3s with Windows Media Player. That's probably already installed on your computer. When you get that MP3 that Redfire is sending you, try to open it with that.

I'll check out the windows media thing. I didn't get the email from Redfire yet though.http://216.10.25.192/vhlforum/smilies/smile.gif

The best and easiest one I've ever had was the one you get from mp3.com . It's easier to use and save on it than Winamp. The problem with it was that it took a lot more room and made my internet connection slow. So now I'm trying Winamp because it's free and doesn't constantly ask you if you'd like to pay $30 for the latest update! http://216.10.25.192/vhlforum/smilies/biggrin.gif

I understand how you feel Glenn cause I'm slowly getting used to Winamp. http://216.10.25.192/vhlforum/smilies/eek.gif
