Hey Oily,

Well, you better go get that Tanelorn footage then.  I will ship over the $ for the beers you may need to accommodate the transaction.

Ah yes, I turned over as many rocks as I could to find Tanelorn recordings.  I tracked down the promoter of the event, contacted Donny Sutherland, many other dj’s, and music folks.  Some said they were there (some couldn’t remember being there), others had heard of it, others had never heard of it.  In those days of less portable technology, or cares to even record shows, this one primarily was only stored in the memory of those who attended (or at least some thought they stored it in their memory).  

And hey, an ‘unofficial release’ would be great. As time goes on, the importance will only dwindle.

i love how your still flying the flag Bruce after all these years. the office is on the list so maybe one day. footage aint good enough for an official release, but a workers release is a different thing which i have suggested previously.

RE: [powderworks] Black Rain Falls DVD


Blu-ray is different to a standard dvd and won’t cater to this ridiculous region issue.

I have a region free dvd player that allows me to play anything from around the world.  Was ~$150 when I bought it 7yrs ago, and they are becoming harder to buy. 

This will also allow me to play the Tanelorn show, no matter what country that dvd is released in.

One option is to ‘make a back-up’ copy of the region4 dvd you purchased and save it as a region1 dvd, so you can actually watch it in the country you reside.

Michael, I bought mine online, it came, has the Exhibition sticker on it, but it is in fact PAL and will not play on my home players. I just use my PC and it works fine.

Just a quick question I hope someone here can help me with: Did any North American 'Workers buy the BRF DVD?  If so, can someone please confirm that it will play properly with US/Can Blu-Ray players and TVs?
