I Know Very Well How I Got My Videos

Before you read any further I'd like you to know that my access to a second VCR varies, so depending when you email, I may be able to make the tape quickly, or it could take me a few weeks

Just a brief explanation of the grading system. The grading relates to BOTH picture and sound quality. "Pro" videos are those shot by professional videographers, usually for TV or promotional use, as such the video, sound, and camera work are excellent. It should also be noted that since these videos were broadcast on TV they are not considered bootlegs. "Aud" videos are unauthorized video recordings of a concert and are considered bootlegs. Camera work varies greatly between "Aud" videos as such an explanation of camera work will be listed in addition to grading information, but the grading for these does not take into account camera work.

The following are a collection of television live appearances. The quality among them varies due to many factors including high generation, TV reception, and recording quality. Also as they were broadcast on TV, they are part of the public domain and thus are not considered bootlegs. I can make compilations of any of the below, but it will take me a bit longer to do, so if you want a compilation tape from me you'll have to be patient.
