Thanks very kindly, only getting around to this now! It's a beautiful upgrade to what I had before. As for the performance, this is classic early Police. There are shows from the following US tour that I may prefer and that are looser/longer, but this is still a very tight gig. Great Roxanne, and a really nice raw Message In A Bottle, which wouldn't be played live again until May. Stewart's drumming is a bit conservative at this show, but nonetheless very solid.The only shame with this is show is that the encore Can't Stand Losing You was never broadcast (I'm not sure if it even exists in audio). The encore version could actually quite differ from the first.

The encore does exist in audio. I actually have an original BBC 4-track broadcast open reel which I could master in, mix and share in the future if anyone is interested.

Your 4-track master sounds intriguing, but this pre-FM vinyl source already sounds pretty stellar...

The reel sounds stellar, too, though I have not played it in something like ten years. But I could have some fun in that it contains four distinct tracks -- that I do remember, but what is on each track, I do not.

It suddenly occured to me I might have transferred the reel way back when, and sure enough I dig through my ancient CDR archive and there it is. I did not save the raw transfer files, and this is a mixdown I did as the reel was actually playing. How does it compare?

Police-Fallout-sample.mp3

I know there is room to improve, for sure. This was done way back in like 2000, probably using a subpar soundcard and Cool Edit 98. :lol: I should've kept notes. I do remember using a Teac A-3340S to play it back on.

To be honest, they sound very similar - your sample has a bit more bottom-end (the kick drum is a bit fatter sounding) and obviously no vinyl surface noise (although it's very minimal on the transcription vinyl trasnfer). It *may* just sound a touch more in-your-face than the vinyl, but that's debatable. Also, the channels seem to be reversed on yours. The reel source certainly isn't any worse, and is probably marginally better, but it's very close...

Many thanks Jason for the reseed. Though I'm not an expert collector about Police stuff I'm very excited to be able to watch the work you've done with this "bad boy" :wink: especially from a gig of their golden era when the band was raw and full of energy 8)

I missed this the first time around, thanks. 'So Lonely' has been a favorite of mine since the mid-late 80's when I hit college.

I liked a little bit compressed sound of this dvd and of course the video quality. 8 Mbps per second constant bit rate is much better than 6.7 mbps variable bit rate. You can find rock goes to college dvd, but made from BBC channel source and it is not as good as this one. I think that some filters added to this video, because it looks more professional than "people-made" production. The video is clear, without distortions (trashy video waves, if you know what I mean0. cheers.
