Default 1995 "Rockumentary" Promo tape upgrade

Link to torrent file:
https://nicholasserra-dropbox.s3.ama...yPromo.torrent

Friend of mine had a couple of these promo tapes, sent them my way for transfer. Best I can tell this is a pre-TV promotional copy. Should be an upgrade to any circulating TV recordings. Seems to be a couple minutes longer than the popular video on YouTube.

This is a VHS lossless transfer, deinterlaced and encoded via x264. The mkv file has the x264 video, an AAC audio track, and a secondary FLAC audio track.


Youtube preview : https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6hhQYP_rpfk

looks awesome!

i think the longer run time is just due to the long silent black/grey screens in between the sections.

how funny is it that billy says towards the end:
"my fear is that, you know, 'jimmy chamberlain plays the hits of the smashing pumpkins, featuring' like, you know, i don't know who he would have on lead - like 'the guy from radiohead on lead vocals' you know?"

but in the end it was billy playing the hits of the smashing pumpkins featuring the guy from rage against the machine on drums.

Never noticed this but I love how they don’t edit out “motherfucker” in Slunk at 2:48, but edit “talk shit” immediately after

Anyone still has good (in 'better than the ones on youtube') versions of the following documentaries?
- Graceful Swans of Never
- Full Circle
- Adore Documentary

many years ago, these could be downloaded here (archived version) which was awesome: http://web.archive.org/web/200502121...oon/dload.html
