    New Footage - Genesis Live in Bataclan France

    What can this strange device be? When I touch it, it brings forth a sound.

    Definitely cool, not new though. Had this Bataclan footage for many years, although I don't think it's ever looked or sounded so good.

    That was quite nice. Even got to see 30 seconds of Steve playing the guitar.

    Look carefully peops...this is much more than just cleaner footage. THE MUSICAL BOX IS COMPLETE!!! Most other versions I've seen start with "BATACLAN..." flashing across the screen and TMB starts about 4+ mins in...beginning cut. Is this the first time it is available complete? However, still too bad that Supper's Ready is incomplete. Also this version has the interview footage at the end.

    my thoughts exactly... I just sampled and ffwd through it and I'd never seen so clean and complete

    will watch it thoroughly tonite at home
    my music collection increased tenfolds when I switched from drug-addicts to complete nutcases.

    Guide to 1970s Rock Music Camerawork:

    Try to show the lead singer as much as possible even during instrumental sections.
    When the keyboardist is playing, show the drummer.
    When the guitarist is playing, show the keyboardist.
    When the above is not possible, show the guitar player who's strumming.

    I just saw this today, too. It looks fantastic, and apparently a 4K version is even being uploaded.

    And if there's an instrumental section featuring the drummer and an all-star guest drummer, by all means superimpose some old silent movie footage instead of showing it.

    Super stuff. Only gripes are (a) the almost total disinterest in filming Hackett; (b) the tendency to stop filming when it really gets going instrumentally. The film crew seems interested in Gabriel at the expense of the others. Not uncommon. Still, great footage, and cool to see a lot of previously unseen extras. Evidently access was provided to the original reels and tapes. I hope other Pop 2 footage will be given this treatment.

    Very true, I totally should have noticed that! Still amazed at the improvement in quality, I don't know how these guys do this stuff.

    You just use a feather duster on the tapes and they come out like new again.

    Exceptional quality, thanks, and real menace at the end of The Knife.

    Those were the days, eh, when patrons could smoke inside a theatre. Actually, those were the days when patrons were actually allowed in a bloody theatre!

    At least we were spared the fast zooming in and out effect.

    Not at all......




    BUT, SERIOUSLY, given that concert filming was in its infancy on both of these, I would call them both amazing and entertaining footage.....
