Notes:

Thanks to Dane for sending me this VHS to digitise.

The tape itself was quite dark and seemed to have some minor sync/editing issues. I digitised it four times across several different set-ups before settling on the nicest looking version. I then took it into Premiere and resynced each song individually. It still seems to drift in and out a little, which I can only put down to the different camera angles not being synced perfectly during editing.

There is another version of this same tape on YouTube, which has a slightly different title sequence and visuals. The concert footage seems to be the same edit, although the YouTube version is full 4:3 framed. My tape is letterboxed and, in comparison, slightly cropped and stretched.
