Rattle and Hum outtakes
« on: December 29, 2017, 11:55:15 AM »
So there are some Rattle and Hum outtakes that have circulated for years, mostly from early on the 3rd leg of the JT tour and of relatively poor quality.  But there's someone on YouTube who's posted some ones that I don't think had circulated previously consisting of mostly unreleased tracks from both 11/8/87 (Denver) and 12/19/87 and 12/20/87 (Tempe), which are the main shows used for much of the live video footage on the film.  The sound quality on all of these vids is not quite as good as the DVD/Bluray would be, but still pretty stellar.  Interesting that no video (at least that I've ever seen) has ever circulated from 11/7/87, though a full soundboard recording of the show has.  All of the videos below from Denver are from 11/8, the show from which all the tracks from R&H were taken, not 11/7.  I sure wish R&H would get a proper re-release with some of this stuff some day.  If you haven't heard/watched these, worth a listen:

Denver 11/8/17 (some mislabeled as 11/7):
Trip Through Your Wires: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vzgT0hQD6uY
I Still Haven't Found: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WsHCEjOYbrA
The Unforgettable Fire: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=d4vpOMw6y8A
Spanish Eyes: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ghw1iyc4K9Q


Tempe 12/19 or 12/20 (they are all labeled as 12/20 though some are definitely 12/19.  I checked at one point which were which, and could again if anyone is interested):

Christmas (Baby Please Come Home): https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qDAyUJQ9r3A (only time this song was ever really performed full-band)

Hi Mike --

You've found these on YouTube but they were originally placed on Vimeo by the movie's director Phil Joanou.

https://vimeo.com/user12243198

There's a wealth of material there to look at direct from the director of the movie.  The user on YouTube has just ripped the videos from there, and placed them on YouTube, conveniently leaving off the source information for these.

Interesting, thanks.  He also appears to have cropped the vids as well.
