There will be a slight delay in the start of this vine. I had planed on announcing it today and taking the first caller. It's going to be a five disc vine. Two discs for the early show Halloween (31 Oct 81, Palladium, NYC TTNS), two disks for the late show on the same day as broadcast by MTV and a fifth disc that will contain some obscure television appearances that I just obtained this week.
The delay is caused by my personal dissatisfaction with the audio quality (no bass) on the early show mpeg files. The video quality isn't the best ether though not bad. Ordinarily I'd be thrilled to have them just the same but I now have a chance to do better. I got myself a good capture card for xmas and I've been learning how to use it. One of our members is making an original tape available to me. I just can't send these two discs out with the chance that in a few days I can have a better set to offer. The video quality isn't all that great on the late show ether but the sound is very good. Besides it's really about the music and I'd rather have a blotchy picture to go with the music than just the music alone or a good picture and poor audio quality on the music. The second disc/file from the late show seems to have a less blotchy picture than the first as well and both have great sound. Look for the initial offer coming up just day's from now if all goes well.
