"Who do we have to kill to get this on DVD"
My thoughts exactly, i haven't even seen it and can't get hold of it ANYWHERE!!!.
I would love to see it come out as part of the Re-master's series, at least then i could get hold of it!!!
I'll have one more afore ye close up the door,
It's on the house mac, it's Whiskey galore! - AC/DC
Epic Music Video has released a double DVD set for AC/DC called "The Family Jewels". disk one covers 1974 to 1979, The Bon Scott era. Disk 2 covers 1980 to 1991, the first 11 years of Brian Johnson's era. This includes the music videos from "Highway To Hell" (never released in USA), "Back In Black" (the Hell Bells video can be seen on the "Who Made Who" VHS release) the "Fly On The Wall" VHS (originally released on Atlantic Home Video), the "Who Made Who" VHS (originally released on Atlantic Home Video) and "Clipped" VHS (originally released on A*Vision Home Video).
This is AC/DC's third DVD release on Epic Music Video (The other two are "Live At Donnington" and the Dual-Disk release of "Back In Black")
"Obi-Wan has taught you well, you have controlled your fear"
"Are you threating me, Master Jedi"
I have it on Video - dig this:
a friend recorded it for me, OFF a Video from Blockbuster, that he "stole" (ie: never returned!) and gave me a video COPY - there are some I have made copies for - but if I had a VCR-to disc recorder (DV-r), I'd be dangerous! (and a friend to you all!)
"The Film which you are about to see is an account of a tragedy that befell a group of 5 youths.."
Malcolm Young says in the commantary of Donnington that the reason this show hasnt been released on DVD is because the master footage is damaged.
Tho, someone needs to tell him that no one cares if it's from the master tape or off a VHS. I own this as a bootleg on DVD, and it's 5.1 surround and sounds great.
It'd be great to see if there is any footage of the band playing Walk All Over You (the show, not the clip over it) and TNT (Cut from the movie)
Plus any more interveiw materials.
As they would be bonus features, it wouldnt matter to AC/DC fans if there where specks and dust all through it and detirarating image. I've seen them put worse things on DVD then just some spicks and specks and sound worries ect..
This movie needs to be put on DVD, and even if it was in 2.0 I dont think anyone would care. Someone needs to inform AC/DC that even if this movie is the same quality as VHS, we still want it officialy released.
This is a conspiracy.
This is the greatest rock video ever made.
And it is not released.
It showed around theatres in the `80s
What about those prints?
I am a VFX artist.
Give me a scan, I will dedicate the the rest of my life to cleaning the plates.
Come on...this is criminal.
Who's got the rights to this anyway? The fact that it's still not on DVD is absolutely unbelievable.share
I would like to guess there's a lot of extra material that never made it on the final copy. Interviews plus more behind the music footage. Hopefully it will be on DVD in the near future.share
ac/dc owns EVERYTHING (cd masters, publishing, etc..) I have to imagine they own this as well. No idea why they don't have it out. At least there are the BBC broadcasts on VH1 Classic. I've got both of those on my DVR.share
wow, this really isn't out on dvd yet? that's crazy.share
"I think Warner Bros. owns the US home video rights."
While Warner did release the film originally in the US, I believe their rights have lapsed. If any major film studio would be releasing this on DVD, it would be Sony Pictures, since their parent (Sony) owns half of Sony BMG, which is the owner of AC/DC's current US label Epic Records.
You can find factory pressed DVD's of this on Ebay. I don't think its an official release (has a picture of Angus from the early 2000's on the front) but i could be wrong.
Better than a VHS version anyway.
it was also on youtube, dont know if its still there but i caught pretty much all of it nd it was awesome
check youtube out to c if its still there!
i went back to youtube nd found the search results for anyone that wanted to c it
yeah this movie is not going to see DVD, yes we wouldnt mind a VHS transfer, but odds are production wont allow it, with all the DVD, it is all about quality and i guess they figure no quality means no DVD, and i also have a dvd bootleg and it is very good quality, it can also be found on limewire so if you have a dvd burner that is also a good betshare
I got a copy today, it is VHS quality, I did watch it today and fulfilled a childhood desire.
But I would definitely buy a Retail DVD that is in 5.1 widescreen if it did become available.
Signature For Dummies:
Put your signature here.
It's originally shot in 4:3 ratio, so widescreen is definitely out...unless you want even LESS picture, lol.share
A special edition of the DVD (official release) is coming out sometime later this year.share
I been waiting on this for years, after hearing Malcolm talk about the master tapes been missing, I dont see why it still cant come out, considering the cd version on Bonfire sounds great, played on a big system it sounds just as good as any other live album, even better. Specks and dust or not, this needs a dvd release, hopefully with TNT included and the concert footage of Walk All Over You, maybe some commentary pieces from Ang and Malc. Hopefully Wikipedia is right cause I've seen their page reports its due for a 2011 releaseshare
That link might be interesting for you guys. It basically confirms the DVD will be released in early 2011.
