Music Videos from 1985 Tape

Hey all,
I just digitally transferred a tape that was recorded in 1985 (I've placed it in that year as some of the videos are labeled from being shown on Late Shift, Simulrock and Kulture Shock that were TV shows that was on Adelaide TV in 1985) that contained about 3 hours of music videos..

Since most of it came up nicely I thought I would post a list of what was on it in case there are some music videos people wouldn't mind me putting onto YouTube (if it will let me) or onto my Dropbox..

Here are the music videos on the tape

Send Me an Angel – Real Life
Fade to Grey – Visage
Wonderful Land – Mike Oldfield
Whose Problem? – The Models
Just What I Needed - The Cars
Eighth Day – Hazel O’Connor
Shangri-La – Steve Miller Band
Bongo Bongo - Steve Miller Band
Move - Peter Westheimer
Man Overboard – Do Re Mi
The Politics of Dancing – Re-Flex
Piano Man – Billy Joel
Thinking of You – The Colourfield
Walking on Sunshine – Katrina and the Waves
Edge of Reality – Elvis Presley
Nightshift – Commodores
Venus – Shocking Blue
The Chant Has Begun – Level 42
Substitute – The Who
Watching Their Eyes – Kissing the Pink
Guilty – Classix Nouveaux
Jackson (Countdown Music Awards ’85?) – Jenny Morris (with Michael Hutchence)
On the Beach (Live) – Mad Turks from Istanbul
Promised You a Miracle - Simple Minds
Waterfront - Simple Minds
Don’t You (Forget About Me) – Simple Minds
Talking to a Stranger – Hunters & Collectors
The Slab – Hunters & Collectors
Lumps of Lead - Hunters & Collectors
Daryl Braithwaite - Let Me Be (different from https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dRzFP_kRMsU)
Each and Every One – Everything But the Girl
So Far Away – Dire Straits
We Can Get Together – Icehouse
F.A.B. – Happy People
Eagle Rock – Daddy Cool
Shake Dog Shake (Live on TV – Top of the Pops?) - The Cure
General Public (Live on TV – Top of the Pops?) – General Public
Swimming Horses (Top of the Pops) – Siouxsie and the Banshees
Your Love is King (Top of the Pops?) – Sade
Great Southern Land – Icehouse
Bad to the Bone – George Thorogood & The Destroyers
I Drink Alone – George Thorogood & The Destroyers
Just a Shadow – Big Country
My Heart’s On Fire – Machinations
Subterranean Homesick Blues - Bob Dylan
Underground – The Angels
Send My Heart – The Adventures

HEAVVVEN!

Love all the UK Top Of The Pops e.t.c...

!!!!!

Re: Music Videos from 1985 Tape

Hi Chad.
Great list of videos. I love it when people share their old compilations, there's always bound to be some rareties.
I wouldn't mind seeing 'My Heart's On Fire' by Machinations if you wouldn't mind uploading it to youtube and sharing your channel..

Thanks.

Re: Music Videos from 1985 Tape

'Let Me Be' sounds like it is probably the original, by Cats Under Pressure:

https://www.discogs.com/Cats-Under-Pressure-Let-Me-Be/release/894810

Bangles' 'Going Down To Liverpool' TV performance could be interesting if it is an Australian one - though I don't know that they came out here that early.

Re: Music Videos from 1985 Tape

By the way, it seems you can pretty much upload any video to Vimeo. I started a channel there to upload videos that are blocked on YouTube:

https://vimeo.com/user37140967

Nothing has been blocked so far/I don't even know if blocking is an option there.

The only downside - you don't get nearly as many views as you would on YouTube.

I'll upload those two also.. I don't think Let Me Be is the full thing anyway but you can have a look :)

I don't think the Bangles is from a performance from Australia..

Yeah I'm very happy with how it turned out. I googled how to clean my video heads manually and also how to physically clean a tape.

Thanks a lot for that! Great quality video. The only thing I noticed is that youtube seems to be throwing the audio (and Cats Under Pressure) out of sync. Would it be too much to ask if you could repost them on Vimeo? Sorry to be a pain.

The Bangles video seems to be right as far as I can tell without knowing the source video. If you could upload Machinations & Cats Under Pressure too that would be much appreciated, thanks.

Re: Music Videos from 1985 Tape

Chad, I hope you don't mind me asking this (and you can of course say no), but I was wondering whether you had converted these files to mp4 from their original vob/DVD source?

I've only looked at the Machinations video from the dropbox links, which is a large file, but mp4. I know when I've converted vob to mp4 before, using a conversion program, it usually ends up with faint horizontal lines of compression throughout, particularly evident during any intense graphic scenes or where there is rapid movement/editing. The Machinations file unfortunately has these on it - perhaps I just have too close an eye for detail with these things and others may not notice it.

So... I was wondering, if you have the original vob files from your DVD still, if you wouldn't mind uploading a vob file for this Machinations video? You can extract individual video files, if these aren't standalone separate titles on disc, from DVDs using the DVD Shrink program (other programs no doubt can do it as well, just I'm familiar with using this). You can download DVD Shrink free online here - https://dvd-shrink.en.softonic.com/

No problem if you don't want to do this though.

Re: Music Videos from 1985 Tape

Chad, just at the start of the Bangles' 'Going Down To Liverpool' live clip is a 'Kulture Shock' graphic. From a quick google, that seems to have been an Australian TV program, actually! Aired on SBS (or channel 0/28 as it was back then). This performance is probably quite rare.

Here's the info I found - http://televisionau.com/feature-articles/top-40-tv

DropBox is even better, given you can put the original files on there.

With Vimeo, you get a 500MB limit per week with a free account. It refreshes every week, though, but it is a bit of a pain.

Re: Music Videos from 1985 Tape

Hi Chad - great list of videos! I would be interested in MPG/VOB uploads of the following:

Whose Problem? – The Models
Just What I Needed - The Cars

(and My Heart’s On Fire – Machinations which Nathan has already asked for )

Fantastic work and from the Youtube uploads - great quality too.

Thanks!

It looks to me that this MP4 file is interlaced. It is not common for MP4s to be interlaced (they are almost always progressive) but it's perfectly legit and in the standards. Is that what you mean by "horizontal lines of compression" because interlacing has a combing effect when a file is viewed on a PC screen.

I pulled it into my video editing programme and could separate the fields out, so this file would look fine when displayed on a TV screen. I always prefer to keep source material in its original interlaced form, deinterlacing is destructive and cannot be undone (but it is fine as an output file for, say, viewing on an iPad).

Yes, it's probably just the interlacing in an mp4 making it look this way... but when I upload interlaced videos (though they're the original vobs I upload) to YouTube, the resulting mp4 files when I download the video I've uploaded don't have this problem. So, if possible, I'd still love to get the original vob file.

I'm with you - the less file conversion, the better

Can I ask if the vob file in the folder contains the Machinations clip? It's 900MB+, so presumably contains more than just the Machinations video.

Hey,

I just copied the file directly from the DVD so it is

I Drink Alone – George Thorogood & The Destroyers (half - other half on previous vob)
Just a Shadow – Big Country
My Heart’s On Fire – Machinations
Subterranean Homesick Blues - Bob Dylan
Underground – The Angels
Send My Heart – The Adventures
I’m Going Down to Liverpool (Live on TV) – The Bangles
Belle of St. Mark (Live on TV) – Sheila E

I've also uploaded Music Videos.mp4 which contains all of the music videos (but is around 4 gig)

Thanks Chad and the mystery was solved... I was intrigued by The Models "Whose Problem?" since I had never heard of the song... but it's a typo. The Motels!

Cheers!

Re: Music Videos from 1985 Tape

Chad, I've downloaded the vob now, and it looks good. Thanks!

Re: Music Videos from 1985 Tape

Hi Chad,

Are you able to please upload The Let Me Be video again bust as a vob file. The MP4 file is out of sync by quite a bit for some reason. If you are also able to do a vob file for F.A.B - Happy People as well, I would be truly appreciative?

The Machinations vob that you did is awesome quality, very very impressed.

By any chance do you have other tapes laying around home that you haven't gone through as yet?

F A B's 'Happy People' was aired on rage a few years ago, during a Vault special (I think 2014).

The Machinations vob that you did is awesome quality, very very impressed.

I might be missing something obvious, but I can't see a vob for that clip in the directory. All I see is two MP4 versions, one interlaced and one not interlaced, both about the same MB size.

Hi Clip Magnet

The vob is not a single video. It is about 950mb and the picture in the folder is from George Thorogoods song. The Machinations video is full and the quality is better than the one I have at the moment and clean. It was on Countdown last year but that wasn't the full video. If you don't want to download the whole lot, I don't mind uploading for you just the Machinations clip?

Hi Nathan,

Yes mate I did grab that one but I am hoping Chad's might be clean. I am quite surprised that some or most of Chad's videos have come up so well. He has transferred from a tape that 32 years old. I hope my DVD's last that long!!

Ah I see. Thanks for the offer Lee but I'm fine to download it. Cheers!
