I don't know what the picture is of, but the JC symbol is a copy of some (deceased) jazz drummer's own kick-drum symbol, just with JC's initials instead. I forget who it was.

I noticed that in some tour video of some Zildjian's headquarter building in which they had the set used by this famous jazz drummer, and it has the same JC logo design on it.

I wasn't sure if that was the video you meant. The audio's pretty good, but the video is pretty mushy.

I hadn't remembered what Soulseek even was, though. It brought back memories of pilfering media to use it again.

back in the day, i made a compilation dvd of all the sp tv appearances i had captured on betacamSP masters when i worked in television.
the SNL performances are on there along with several others.
they are likely the best quality you're ever going to find.
the dvd was openly traded in the community.
surely someone has a copy.

now, if someone would come forward with an audience recording of the 8-24-18 Seattle show, i could make a surround sound edition.
i've already gamma corrected the video, cleaned it up to remove any jaggies, noise-reduced it, and bobbed it to 1080p 60fps with QTGMC.
it looks purty.

Hopefully that resurfaces. Is the SNL rehearsal footage on it, too?

no, but i do have a tape that i haven't circulated yet that is from billy's appearance on jay leno, when he was promoting thefutureembrace.

i coordinated it with a guy who worked for the tonight show.

thanks for sharing this again.
i seem to have misplaced my copy, so it's nice to have it again.

*NOTE: the halloween 1998 performance has the fields reversed, so it flutters.
i'll see if i can fix that at some point.

worked for me, although the audio is out of sync a little (delayed by approx 0.2 seconds, that seems to fix it in vlc).

the same delay is in the original version from the dvd torrent though.

Thanks! This one does have improved video and audio quality. This version seems to be squished vertically a bit, though. That, or the copy provided by NickS is slightly stretched horizontally. Or, the one is slightly stretched very slightly and the other is very slightly stretched horizontally. So many possibilities.





@ NickS. I'm not running an interlace filter on the video, that's how it looks for me. But it probably just isn't noticeable while it's playing.



There's a download of the SNL rehearsal footage on soulseek, which is 180 MB. I also used a youtube video downloader to made the highest-quality possible rip of the one available on youtube, which is 230 MB. Comparing them, I think the youtube rip has marginally better audio, and it seems to have a higher resolution. But when I scale them to the same window size, I'm not certain I notice a difference. They're both sludgy.

Soulseek version: https://mega.nz/file/lUYHnYKZ#C_igyu...2CACWvxVdn_Eyw

YouTube version: https://mega.nz/file/1ZgHjIwa#KJUp7C...0Fj13wbuItVTIQ

Other people can opine on which is better if they like.

if you check the info on my dvd, you'll see that it is 720x480 (anamorphic), which is the standard NTSC 4:3 aspect ratio.
*edit* another important thing about my dvd is that all the audio is 48k pcm wav format, not some lossy codec.

thanks for sharing the rehearsal video. it's all new to me - i wish i had access to the master, so i could clean it up a little, but this is very cool to see. it's very similar to the tonight show rehearsal i mentioned above. i really need to encode that and share it one of these days.

there's 3 minutes of "MTV News footage of the band backstage and a few rehearsal clips."
