My First Experience with VHSPS

In my quest to find a "real" LHODES VHS bootleg (see if you can help here), I ran across this online DVD-R dealer, the VHS Preservation Society, having first heard of these guys from this 31 Days, 31 Links entry at Freddy in Space. I spotted a listing for Dead End Street and figured I'd bite, unfortunately upon receiving a friendly shipping notice a day (well, yesterday) after I placed the order, I was told it was the only title from a digital source they offered.

Argh. That threw up an enormous red flag, and surprisingly receiving the disc today via priority, sure enough the disc is a complete rip of the first disc from the defunct Barrel Entertainment's out-of-print 2-DVD set including commentary and extras.

So my first order with VHSPS was both good-and-bad. Friendly service, prompt turnaround on orders, "free" priority shipping without a request for it (@ $4.95), and the disc is authored correctly. I guess I just had the luck of getting the only digitally sourced title out of their catalog. Though I can see myself nabbing another flick or two from them down the road...

Yeah, it's not so bad though, now I gotta copy to screw around with and I don't have to touch my "real" valuable Barrel copy.

Did you get my e-mail with the link to a Spanish subtitled version possibly from a foreign broadcast or a VHS? you dare tread upon the staircase?
