The quality is fine. Amateur video cameras couldn't cope so well with low light in those days, that's all.

It's ridiculous trying to judge the "quality" just by YouTube clips.

i like the "amateur"- flavor/look of those recordings (with a quality audio source)...
that gives me the right "bootleg"- feeling... :wink:

The image information is all there but its too dark. As Peter stated, you enhance the colors of your TV and its much better.
The same goes for pictures. When you have a dark picture you can make it lighter in for instance Photoshop and you can see the info is in the picture.
I work with Photoshop for over 10 years now, i work in the graphic business.

If someone wants me to give it a try just let me know.


I'd love the Dalton, Ga video/DVD with a lighter picture, as it is one of the best shows of Jerry every captured on video in my opinion. Some great Country songs, and very funny ad-libs.

But the video/DVD footage is almost unwatchable - at times Jerry's face seems to be floating in a dark screen, or peering thru a mist or fog.

But it is a very long performance. Perhaps just enhancing one song, such as 'Pick Me Up On Your Way Down' with its great ad-lib, would give us an idea whether it would be worth doing the whole video footage and what improvement could be made to the picture.

The old video (which Tom Sturt had) & my DVD are in very different quality. The VHS tape we had was transcoded "optically" with a camera onto a screen, & lost alot in the process. But I think the DVD is more than watchable if you adjust the brightness on the TV a little.

OK I'll dig it out and watch it again, after fiddling with the brightness/contrast controls.

Pierre made this list several years ago, so it's a little out of date but still useful:
