Filmer's Notes
   (Audio - 8.5, Video - 8.5)

Filmed on Hi-8mm video format, make/model: Sony TR-101, hi-fi stereo with external stereo mic, image stabilizer used, 10x optical zoom. Image quality: Excellent for Hi-8mm format (350 lines of horizontal resolution) Source: Digital8 clone made from Hi-8mm master. Beginning of drum solo was not filmed due to battery change. There are a few brief camera ducks due to security problems. The crowd around the filmer occasionally gets up and down and in the line of sight to the stage. Filmed from 12 rows off the floor on Alex's side about 2 sections out the stage. A nice mix of about head to waist close-up shots as well as wide shots, good steady camera work and composition overall. Some brief drop outs are present throughout due to degradation over the years of the master Hi-8mm video.    (2003-10-05)

See the reviews for the DVD release for more details about the video and audio quality of this show (which looks and sounds quite nice.) This VCD set was created from the Mpeg files I received from Digital Reproductions. I created menus for the discs, and set up chaptering etc. This is most likely the final VCD conversion release of a DR DVD release that I will do. DVD burners can be had for under $200 US now, and even if you can't afford one now, its likely you'll be able to in the next year or so. As many board members now have DVD burners, even if you can't yet afford your own, it should be fairly easy to find someone who will do a blank media trade for the DVD release. Thus, why put out the inferior VCDs, if the DVD version can be so readily had?    (2003-10-05)

The Digital Dan
   (Audio - 8.5, Video - 8.5)

This is a great CP tour video taken from a Digital8 clone of the Hi8 master. The picture quality is very nice and much clearer than the unknown gen VHS sources floating around. The first half of the show has some points where the audience gets in the way of the camera, and those sections are filled in with a still shot montage. The second half of the show is obstruction free, but a big section of the drum solo is missing. That soundtrack to the original video is as good as the DAT audience recordings from this show, if not even better. This is a show any Rush fan would be delighted to watch, it gets a heavy rotation from me. Special thanks to the NYBG for loaning out his wonderful source. As with all Digital Reproductions releases, this is a free trade or blank trade only production. Please do not buy, sell or distribute for profit. Let's keep the spirit of trading alive and well.    (2003-10-05)
