Most of the above footage i taped myself, over the years. it's wonderful footage and mostly great quality.
If you might be interested, or know anyone who is, let me know, and i'm sure we can work out something fair. I've also got some great material on Elvis Costello, Capt Beefheart, Residents, Kate Bush, Doors and some others, too.
All the best,
Who is Rick Howell and how did he get my email address?
