Adrian Belew & the Bears- Mississippi Nights, St. Louis Mo. 8/11/87 Proshot xfer from studio master

Happy thanksgiving to everyone who is celebrating this year. Ever since I learned that the crap they teach you in school is not exactly truthful, I think of the holiday differently. I am thankful for many things, one of them being that I can enjoy getting all of my collection out for people to see.. and people seem to pay attention and enjoy them. I appreciate all of the friends I have made through the music scene over the past 35 years.
Anyway, I was surprised to see that this was not posted yet. I worry that it will get blocked- we will see, I guess. This was one of the bigger, more mainstream artists that double helix filmed over at Mississippi Nights in the 80s. I am also thankful that they had the vision to film these bands– not many videos from that era are this good.

Redrum- El Dorado Saloon, Sacramento Ca 8/2/87 Xfer from VHS Master w/ Soundboard Audio Live

I have been wanting to get this video synched up with the audio forever. This is the first concert I ever filmed! I borrowed Damon Brindle’s Dad’s camera. It was one of those ones that had the camera portion separate from a little portable VCR that actually did the recording. You hooked them together with BNC cables. The camera did not perform well, as you can see. But thanks to Derek Purtell (who did an amazing job of synching the master soundboard tape to this video), you can finally see this thing in “as good as it gets” quality. Enjoy! R.I.P. Mike Caboy & Don Adams.

Oh, the footage at the beginning is Greg Decay(Johnson) and I re-enacting my barfing off of their apartment balcony the night or weekend before.

Soundboard audio starts about 5:30 in.

Trouble- El Dorado Saloon, Sacramento Ca 8/2/87 Xfer from Master Audio Tape

I have a few concert-going regrets in my life and this is one of them. I LOVED the first Trouble album when it first came out, but I went into my black/death metal phase and did not appreciate how great they were at this show. I talked through a good part of the show. And they might have let me video as well, they were one of the few artists who seemed to be cool with taping in the late 80s. So dumb. Oh well. Enjoy.
