A release would be more than cool.

Perhaps a full legal set in some form of HD for their 60th Anniversary. Failing that, the week after next would be fine by me!

Or, to put it more clearly so that they under$tand what I'm saying... this is a way to get more money from me!

Interesting, but much to do about nothing
"Restored" looks pretty much the same, maybe slightly brighter.
A lot of work for little result.


The Gimme Shelter movie restoration years ago was a major upgrade and something to be marveled at, but not this.

I can’t get it to play. I guess they need to restore it
a little bit more

The restored is darker, better focused, better colors and it's most likely been formatted for widescreen. Looks great, considering how a lot of those videos look a bit washed out. CUTTING EDGE TECHNOLOGY was used!!!

Maybe it will be VIDEO REWIND - THE COMPLETE VIDEOS or something like that. Or maybe TOTAL REWIND - THE VIDEOS.

Video bitrate offered by YouTube: 2663 kb/s
Video bitrate offered by catlaw: 9940 kb/s

Don't use YouTube for video quality comparison.

Official videos would be great, and if they have been restored, even better

60th anniversary.........not far off, is it? Hard to imagine.

A 60th Anniversary tour would not be too far fetched.

The *colors* in the SD video can be fixed with hardware or software... to fix the typical purplish-green color shifts from old tapes: i.e. fix reds and yellows. warm flesh tones, restore green grass, blue skies and water, etc.

But it's not possible to truly a "uprez" Standard Definition video to High Definition. The *resolution* of the restored video remains the same as the original video. that's the same as attempting to enlarge a Jpeg image: the result is always just a blocky, blurry enlargement of individual pixels.

That really is fantastic news! Only an announcement of a release day the new album this spring would be better. The restored videos on Goats Head Soup were astonishing.

yeah, what's the deal with the constant addition of material, whether on CD, DVD or whatever, to the Japanese releases that the rest of the world doesn't get? Why? That leaves us having to fork out quite a bit of money for the items and especially the shipping. Is there some special financial motivation for the band and if so, what would that be? I just don't get it.

Because CD/DVD/BR are expensive in Japan, buyers there get Bonus-Tracks to buy local instead of (cheaper) import.

Correct-O


Japanese products usually have Bonus-Tracks so as to
entice them to buy local produced instead of (cheaper) import.
