Tech notes:
 -Rip from:
  =>VHS/NTSC(second generation)=>VirtualDub(avi/mjpeg)=>mpeg-1 NTSC
 -Tech Stuff:
  =>Sony Stéréo VCR DUAL
  =>Matrox G-200 Marvel VC
  =>Tmpenc 2.55
  =>MSPro 6.5
  =>SoundForge5 + Waves Restoration
  =>This rip was made from a new VCR/Stéréo/4 heads and the sound impro-
    vement is obvious. Only few tweaks were made to enhanced the whole
    gig and it's my "OO"'s secret!
  =>You won't get better sound than this one so far......
  =>Few flash frames at start...
  =>At around 22min of part 2, the TV cam went down for few seconds so
    you still can hear the music but image is blank so do not worry, it
    was on the master/copy (unedited we could say...).
 Few years ago (2001), I released the first version (Final by OO) which can be
get on the net under many names and formats. That was the first version
avalaible but not the best I could achieve.
This new one (Last Final Edition) is an upgrade from the first one and the "Final" one
from this tape version.
 *Enjoy this first release
   again for the
  FZ fans pleasure only!!
 Peace and Love!

Disc 5
Frank Zappa on the Norman Gunston TV show (January, 1976, ABC, Australia)
Lineage: Sattelite TV/VHS/Primative USB Capture Card/MPEG1
transfer and comment by wazoo
in this interview Gunston & FZ have a blues jam, (or jelly as Gunston assumes Americans might refer to it as) with FZ on Guitar & Gunston on harmonica. Gunston closes his harmonica vamp with the theme from the ABC news (ABC here like BBC or PBS).
 July 2nd, 1973 ABC Australia, TV
(also listed as July 3rd, 1973)
48 min, PAL, A/A (2nd gen)

From: Jon Naurin (naurin[at]mbox300.swipnet.se)
"Monday conference", nice interviews & discussions with FZ, plus a proshot
RDNZL from one of the Melbourne shows.

From: Jillis Stada (stadaj[at]usoft.nl)
RDNZL rehearsal in Melbourne, June 29th 1973
5 min. TV, B&W, A
Used in: 2 Jul 73 Monday Conference, ABC Australian TV

From: JWB (mudshark[at]intergrafix.net)
Those are two different television programs. "Monday Conference" was an
excellent panel show appearance, which I have on tape. The conducting
segment is from an unidentified talk show. That last entry belongs under a
different heading.
I would like to add that the entire pro-shot RDNZL segment is painfully out
of sync the entire time and therefore only truly enjoyable if you either
close your eyes or shut off the sound. They show it in the middle of the
interview, and much to my delight, FZ comments on the poor sync job after
they return! He says something to the effect of "That wasn't very

Frrrom: Craig Jones (good_king_zog[at]msn.com)
Pat, I sourced this tape for trading & I have 1st gen off the station
master. The date is definitely 2 July 1973. What circulates out there is a
pre-broadcast version, before the usual credit talkovers were added at the
end. Also, the footage is synced correctly in places, notably part of the
guitar solo (this is a problem with a lot of Australian 70's [at]live' footage
shot by the ABC).
Also, about the [at]conducting the audience' segment from Video From Hell, the
name of the source show was (I believe) Sigley In Adelaide, a live
night-time format show hosted by Ernie Sigley, broadcast in early July 1973
(between the 4-6).
