According to Ebay..this guy is selling some Smashing Pumpkins videos

Jan 6, 1996 (Washington, DC) – 145 minutes
Feb 21, 1993 (Munich, Germany)
Aug 1993 (Chicago, IL)
July 10, 1996 (Landover, MD) – 120 minutes
Jan 3, 1996 (Toronto, Canada) – 130 minutes
May 15, 1996 (London, England) – 143 minutes
April 17, 1996 (Dussldorf, Germany) – 75 minutes
1991 Sun Theater & 1992 CBGB’s in NYC – 80 minutes
Jan 27, 1996 (Rio, Brazil)
1989 San Francisco Acoustic Record Store Performance
1994 SNL Rehearsals

Looking through those I notice he has some dates wrong, but looking at splra I can't seem to find video recording notes for the Landover and Toronto shows. Also 1991 Sun Theater as I can't seem to even find a record of this. Any of this need to be looked into? Whether the seller is telling the truth of the dates etc I don't know but they aren't listed for too much.

Frank (Syco54645) and I actually contacted this guy about a year ago and borrowed some of his tapes. Frank has transfers of 1996/07/10 and 1996/01/06 (might have been the third, I'm going to email him) from these exact tapes.

I'm not sure how the 1996/01/06 compares to Mixwell's tape.

This might be worth a buy for 1996/01/03, to upgrade the VCD thats circulating now.

Edit-I should mention that we deemed the rest of the tapes not worth transerring due to already circulating. We might have had the "Sun Theater" tape as well, it might have turned out to be 1991/12/22 or 1991/12/31, I'm not sure (hazy memory).

edit #2-also this guy was kind of a dick, but Frank did keep his tapes for way too long.

The only info I could find on a Sun Theater venue is for one that opened in '99

i have all of the transfers from him still, i will make a list of what i have. he was a fucking asshole though. and i had his tapes for a month and a half. i do not think that is way too long to transfer 4 tapes. i will try to figure out what i have asap. i am a bit busy as my grandmother just died

Sorry to hear that Franko.

I forgot splra only list a vid recording if it's been transferred to dvd. I'm assuming there isn't a circulating dvd of these yet then. Interesting that we've already been in contact with this guy previously.

so to clarify, we don't have a DVD transfer of 1996/01/03, so this would be worth buying if you don't mind the nine redundant tapes :/

mixwell's 1996/01/06 is definitely listed as circulating. I'm comparing screens from Frank's and that transfer as we speak

also i should not that not all of these are kenny tapes.
he had an assload of shit labeled wrong that he sent to me, so the 1-3-96 show may not really be it. i cannot remember if the fuckhole sent that tape to me or not.

! pause

I do believe thats the complete audience video of the Brixton show. I know there was a transfer of it done by xdx. Can anyone comment on the tape quality/generation of that one?
