I've been meaning for a while to offer my VHS recordings of rage to anyone who wants them, now that I have digitised anything that I wanted to keep.
The recording quality is generally good, a little bit of ghosting but not much. The tapes are offered as-is. They are well over 20 years old, some nearly 30 years, so there may be glitches or deterioration that I don't know about.
These tapes usually consist of multiple recordings of rage segments over other previous recordings. So they are not recordings of single rage episodes and some clips are incomplete because they have been partly recorded over (I try to indicate if this is the case).
If only one person wants a given tape, I will post the tape to them and they need to cover my costs (packaging+postage). If you want it but someone has already replied saying they want it, you have to offer a bid of at least $1 more than whatever the previous bid is (which effectively starts at $0). The winning bid would be paid on top of the P&P costs.
Bidding will close in 1 weeks' time (i.e. next Sunday night).
I'll post the trackists for the first 5 tapes. If this idea is a total flop, I will likely junk my entire collection of 20+ tapes rather than type up all the tracklists. Or you can make a bid for the entire lot sight unseen.

I assume the clips that come after the Simple Minds special are from a later episode(s) of rage, as among them are some late '93 releases (Kiss That Frog, Can't Stop Killing You).
Correct, and I have no idea when, I did not write down the recording dates.
Are these tapes first generation/second generation or mixed?
They are all first gen, original recordings.
I'd be interested in this one.
It's yours. I'll send you an email.
