Released exclusively on the long since discontinued and deleted formats of VHS, Betamax, VHD and LaserDisc. This particular release has NEVER been available on DVD until NOW!
This REMASTERED DVD is sourced directly from the original high quality LaserDisc to DVD for the first time ever! Quality is unmatched as it transferred from the long since deleted LaserDisc from OVER THIRTY SIX years ago.
Some audiophiles and sound purists argue that unless the remastering process includes completely “lossless” compression of audio that no matter how it may be converted/processed, it still is compressed audio thus producing some say a more audibly muddled sound. This is due to the lessening of the dynamic range between the loudest and quietest parts of the audio signal thus producing some distortion and a clipping audio effect. The DVD offered here is sourced from the LaserDisc from 1986. Because of the large 12 inch size of the LaserDisc format it can easily support the amount of physical space required to successfully playback large uncompressed sound and in this case even digitally remastered in uncompressed form. This Remastered DVD features the original completely uncompressed digitally remastered audio recording allowing the original true recorded mix to come alive as it was originally intended to be heard in optimum sound quality. This original mix featured with completely uncompressed audio is exclusively preserved here and available in it’s original intended state of production for the very first time on DVD.
Background information: Originally this live performance was released on LaserDisc in 1987. The LaserDisc format was only available in Japan. The only VHS release of this classic concert was also in Japan.
Description: Recorded live during the band’s 1986 release for the “Fore!” LP. This concert recorded live at Oakland’s Oakland-Alameda County Coliseum Arena on December 30th 1986. So this concert ended up being released only in the country of Japan and was never officially released in America on any format. Here for the first time not only is it on DVD but also available to America and the rest of the world in the DVD format.
