    Default Unearthed Live Club Days VIDEO footage!!

    No one's seen or posted this yet?!

    The first live Van Halen video footage EVER pre-1978. In fact, this is from their first official year as a band: 1974.

    https://www.vhnd.com/2020/12/25/watc...ty-melee-show/

    Thank you Mary S., Karen Imler, Kim, Debbie, Greg Renoff, the VHND, and of course, Santa! I believe the first 4 were the hosts of the infamous you-a-rowdy-bunch-of-motherfuckers backyard party--cop footage included! And, you can see the girls partying afterwards.

    I don't care if you can hardly see it. I don't care if there's no audio. And I don't give a shit that it's just a minute long. This is unreal. Outside of that recent footage of Eddie playing football on the beach and MAYBE those 3 1/2 music videos they did for VHI (they technically may have been shot in '77 versus '78, never saw a confirmation)...this is, again, the only pre-'78 video footage ever seen yet. Despite the tons of audio.

    And here's a slightly shorter YT version from someone kind enough to upload:



    I saw this last night and felt like Clark W. getting the bonus plus the additional 20% and Ralphie getting the Red Ryder combined--Merry Christmas to all, and to all a good night!

    I came here a couple days ago looking for a thread about this film footage and found nothing. Thanks for mentioning it! Old amateur silent 8mm footage, but amazing nonetheless. The earliest footage of Van Halen now known to exist.

    Was just thinking today--I wonder if that's the footage Van Squalen was talking about? Thought he said it was longer though. Maybe.

    Sadly, it appears they were technologically cursed from the beginning.
    I've seen better footage of Mozart.

    Funny...I was going through my two bins of music VHS the other day and found some old footage I could not find on YT...some 81 footage from Chicago and other places (not Oakland unfortunately).

    How would one convert it to digital so I could post on YT?

    Would that be Memphis and/or Charleston, WV? The Memphis is on YouTube and the Charleston is shot from a distance a level or two up stage right with no audio (yet pretty long).

    Not sure about the transferring though outside of buying a VHS/DVD converter, but I'm sure there's a better way.

    It might be...I seem to recall DLR screaming about Chicago but I could be wrong. So I was watching on a Samsung VCR/DVD converter unit I have maintained and I thought about converting to DVD but I use a Google Chromebook at home...no cd/dvd drive. In addition even my work laptop no longer has a drive.

    So even if I spend the time to convert the stuff getting it to digital is a challenge for now....

    Oh I meant aside from Chicago.

    Yeah I only have about 70 VH/DLR/SH/Gary VHS's to convert myself. Been meaning to do it for 17 years now. Maybe I'll do it tomorrow. Should only take about a half hour.

    SOME VH LINKS CLASSICS


    "Sammy is fat, Dave is bald, Mike is next in line to be the Pope, Eddie is a drunk, Wolfie is fat, Gary is gay, CVH is VH, Mike is VH, Sammy can outsing Dave on a tequilla hangover, Eddie is a meth head, How Many Say I is the worst VH song ever, Up for Breakfast is a close second, Dave was horrible at radio and everybody hates the assless chaps.
    Ok I think that covers everything." Ziggysmalls

    "I sense that some of our newer passengers may be nervous due to the sudden turbulence. Please be seated, this is simply a normal part of the periodic ride.
    I didn't say we'll get to the destination, but until Alex comes out a says what a complete waste of carbon DLR is, we're still climbing, so strap yourselves in.
    Those of you who have been on this ride before, the hottie in the mini will be around shortly with your drinks......." Red
