Really? The only ones I could see on LDDB all had a shorter running time than 228/229 - can you point me in the right direction please? Do you have a copy that could be captured?

Not to toot my own horn...but skip to an hour in:

The LD is pretty easy to find and can go for super cheap. And it remains one of the best discs I've ever seen. It's a barebones WB release without a gatefold. Looking online at copies you'll want the one with the art across the entire cover and the small WB widescreen logo in the bottom corner. And it remains the only way to hear the original mono which is amazingly better than the 5.1.

I'm dying to establish a capture method but every time I start saving to build an editing PC I find I can never save enough and then have to dip into that for regular expenses. Of course once I finally do so...I kinda have a backlog of titles to do now since I'm nearing 800... Eek Shocked Happy

on the 2002 DVD release of The Sound Of Music, they have a Dolby 4.1 mix and a Dolby 2.0 mix, that may be derived from the 70mm and the 35mm Printmaster. I will have to track down a copy so I can post them both here.

Thought I'd pick this up since the colours are radically different to the more recent BD releases. I got the 40th Anniversary DVD as mentioned in the Blah-ray blog. However I think the information is wrong. The "apron slap" is severely muted even in on this version.

I think you're right in saying the 2002 DVD may contain a closer version to the original mix.

Anyone have more info about the differences in mixes? Also why is the track on the 40th 5.0 channels?

Would be cool to get a laserdisc capture. Does anyone have it?

I've got something special in the works for the Evil Dead fans out there. I ran across the Japanese LD of the first movie with the original Mono PCM track and couldn't resist grabbing it. I've done a bit perfect capture and am now working on syncing it up to the new UHD (seems to be some frame differences from the Blu-ray). Hoping to have it done by Halloween weekend Wink
