No one seemed to have it in an electronic form, and everyone felt that the VHS version just wasn't worth remastering to DVD. Many of the "old-school" traders had this on VHS, but none of us who are primarily electronic or on-line traders seemed to have it. I was out of the country in 1990, and never got to see the Presto show, which includes many of my all-time favorite Rush tunes. I finally got desperate enough to ask someone to send me their "crappy VHS" version just so I could see it for myself. I declined an offer to get a VHS copy, and rather asked for the trader's VHS tape directly, as I didn't want to add another "gen" to an already questionable source. I got it - put it in the VCR, hooked up the Sony DV-Cam Firewire to the PC and the VCR, pushed play and started the capture, and (after the shaky start to "Force Ten") was very pleasantly SURPRISED at the concert that played out before me for the next two hours. For me, the best thing about this video is that it was Pro-Shot and Pro-Edited, which makes it very comfortable to watch, and in my opinion more than makes up for the relatively poor video quality. I made this DVD primarily for myself, and those with whom I shared it all encouraged me to release it on the DRE. It has its flaws - there are MANY - and the video source is only OK. [The audio is pretty good, better than the other console-burner DVD I found during the creation process.] I wanted to put a stake in the ground and release a DIGITAL version of this, to ensure that it doesn't ever get WORSE than this through repeated VHS transfers. I would be thrilled to have someone discover a clear, low-gen copy of this show and make mine obsolete!
