What were the unbroadcast songs?

Songs are the same as yours, since that's what was broadcast at the time. Video quality is OK but not amazing - about as good as old VHS transfers get, though.There's also a very rare source that includes the songs that were not broadcast...at least one person has previously tried to share that here, but its origin is a bit murky (possibly stolen from MTV if I recall correctly).
Basically there's nothing new about your version, but some members might appreciate it since, AFAIK, there's no other version currently available online - dimeadozen.org doesn't allow this show to be seeded because it contributed songs to an officially released album.- ChrisOn Sat, Mar 16, 2013 at 3:51 AM, rocrusso <firstname.lastname@example.org> wrote:
back in 1998 i was a design student at SVA in NYC and my graphic design instructor that year worked at MTV. She was able to give me a VHS of Midnight Oil Unplugged that I always meant to digitize to video and also make audio tracks, but never did.
I finally got around to doing that, its only VHS quality but its better than nothing if there isn't a better copy floating out there. The whole video is 50 minutes long and just over 1GB. 640x480 stereo.
first off, is there a better copy already available? if not, what is the best way to help share this with fellow Powderworkers? I am thinking i could post it on Dropbox and share that link (back in the late 90's i also used to host a MO ftp site for bootlegs, but probably couldn't handle the bandwidth for this right now)
i probably could break up the songs to individual videos to help share smaller files. Let me know what, if anything, we have in place.
