It's basically 40 minutes of never before seen black & white footage that was cut from the broadcast. This version is the whole show starting from the clapperboard through the all day Full German into the sound engineer's noodling and rejoining at the partial King Kong we already know from the broadcast. In short: It's not perfect, but it's interesting. Earlier this year I fixed the Beat Club DVD and some time later when I was working on this restoration project Flambay discovered the audio was broken! "Why can't anything be easy?" is always the question I ask when I've finished a project and then find out something is wrong. A while back I'd asked flambay to look at the audio, I needed an expert opinion on the content and how we should present both the audio and the video files. Flambay got back to me to say he'd noticed audible clicks every 15 seconds throughout and I/we FREAKED OUT for a while because I'd just seeded the Broadcast version! We checked the only 2 copies of the footage in the world and they both had the same problem! Later that year, PittyLabelle rode to the rescue with a technical solution that didn't require flambay spending the rest of his natural life cleaning the audio up by hand … Pitty extracted clean copies of the audio and we stopped FREAKING OUT and I got back to the final noodling process of syncing it all back together.
