    Oakland

    Thought I'd post. Someone worked on the video and audio. It's nice, and seamless too, all three songs together in one long video.

    someday the whole thing, maybe.....



    I was telling the friend who emailed this to me that they do not approach this energy these days. But, they do approach it at certain times during their shows, and those instances are overwhelmingly awesome. That's why I go. I can't imagine a whole show of this type of energy. But I guess that's why they were the top band in the world at one point.

    That is quite an improvement. Thanks for sharing.

    As for the energy level, that was 32 years ago.

    You can wonder what Roth and Eddie Van Halen are doing in the same band. Its hard to imagine two guys with less in common psychologically, yet together they seem to make a complete personality. Extrovert balanced by introvert, logic by intuition, entertainment balanced by artistry. --Charles Young, Musician Magazine.

    Love those Oakland clips, was too drunk to remember it from attending the actual show I saw in Philly on that tour. I do recall some drunken maniac running across the hoods of everyone's car near where we were parked in the lot outside the Spectrum. Interesting that Ed did not use the flanger on the live HAIL. We never noticed back then, and it sounds great even now without it.

    I enjoy any of the remastered clips from Oakland; however... anyone who doesn't respect that those were originally 4:3 and tries to put them in a 16:9 space tells me they don't know much about video. And, this remastered version not only stretches the 4:3 image to 16:9 but they also do it in a 4:3 space.

    Bad.

    Yeah, and honestly I have a better version of the audio. I recorded the three song audio off of the official videos that were all (at the time a couple years ago) posted over at mtv.com at the bands page, it's the best audio and video I had ever seen and heard of these videos. You could look up any band and often they had videos of that band. Well the ones they had for vh were like jump, panama, and these three. And the three Oakland vids were immaculate in clarity, both in terms of the audio and video since they were the originals and streaming in high quality. Should hop over there and see if they are still there.

    I also appreciated the effort. The sound and color were nicely done (although there seems to be some distortion audio-wise at the beginning.)

    I think if they'd just re-export the 16:9 file to fill in the black, I'd be quite happy... even if it is stretched a bit.

    Either that or carefully re-crop it to real un-stretched 16:9.


    Cheers for the great effort put into this labor of love, folks.
