Purely by accident I discovered this in the National Library online database. No images of the cover. Somewhat ominously it says "No known library holdings in Australia".
I have never heard of this release and have found no record of it in the usual discography resources and music archives. The Goanna clip "Dangerous Dancing" is omitted, but that's probably because Shane Howard wasn't in it!
Shane Howard, The Videos (1990)

Walk On Fire
If The Well Runs Dry
I'm almost certain I saw it listed on eBay a while ago (like perhaps nearly a year ago). The seller was asking a silly price though (just under $100 from memory), so I wasn't tempted. If it had had 'Escape From Reality' on it though, I may have been.
I didn't know about that release either, and saw no mention of it a few years ago when I was tracking down his greatest hits CD.
Would be very nice to have. If it could be found on VHS, there are people who could transfer it.
A shame there is no 'Dangerous Dancing' for the sake of completion, but 'Razor's Edge' and 'Back To The Track' are rare enough to make it worthwhile.
Rare VHS tapes like this that probably had very small production runs can go for a motza. The Pseudo Echo "Pseudo Flicks" VHS tape last sold on discogs.com for $200. I kid you not. I paid $90 last year for The Church's original eponymously named VHS clip collection, and nearly $50 many years ago for 1927's "...ish" tape.
I uploaded a perfect clean hi-res copy of "Razors Edge" to my YouTube channel late last year, and within two weeks it was smashed with a worldwide block.
To my surprise, Warners have just added 'Razor's Edge' to youtube.
I wonder if there is any other Goanna, or indeed anything else from that era.
Yes, after I posted I watched the first few seconds and it's certainly stretched to fullscreen.
'Solid Rock' is on there too, but their other recent uploads are all horrible like James Blunt and Jason Derulo *gags*
Wow! I should add this to discogs.com.
Any chance of doing a high quality digital rip to circulate to the fans? :grinning:
Interestingly, Warners have only stretched 'Razor's Edge', but 'Solid Rock' appears to be the correct aspect ratio (I think).
I've now added this release to discogs.com
