I happened to stumble into one of these live video's on a car- boot sale (flea market) in Newcastle whilst backpacking through Oz in 1993 - i'd no idea at the time that it was anything particularly collectable as i'd only just got into investigating S.Enz after being a C.H fan, so bought it for a few Dollars, thought nothing more of it. As it happened Tim Finn was performing/touring 'Before & after' at 'The Castle' in Newcastle that very night (which is why i'd gone there) & i was fortunate enough to meet him backstage after a fantastic & energetic live show which utterly blew me & my then girlfriend away (her first live gig), the video was all i had on me that i could get Tim to autograph (other than one of the posters from that show, which i also still have) & he showed great interest in it, & asked me if he could have it, or if i'd send him a copy of it to him when i got back home, i said i'd watch it & then pass it on to him next time we met (which was to be on the A.L.T tour couple of years later) & so i carried it in my backpack for the next 3 months around Oz with the intention to watch it when i got home & then give it to Tim. I did watch it, & have enjoyed it several times since, but didnt want to give it away as i liked it so much.! (sorry Tim.!)
Anyhow, moving on 20yrs, was recently having a bit of a clear out & came across it again, watched it, enjoyed it as usual, & then wondered about selling it on, & if it was ever mentioned anywhere on the net..
so can anyone tell me if it is particularly rare still these days? with the dawn of the internet now making the World smaller & collectable & previously scarce stuff perhaps not so these days.?? Is it valuable? Is this show now available on DVD??
The 'Tim Finn' autograph was done with the pen that was used to write out all the st lists that night at the show, so it'd run out of ink somewhat - i didnt want to chance leaving the backstage area to find another pen in fear of not getting back there again, so made-do with the worn out black felt marker.!
