Perhaps you've seen my post about Paul and John's surprise 1968 Tonight Show appearance. Well, due to that post I've got a new friend named Trini at the famous radio show
Trini shared with us THE ACTUAL AUDIO to that same '68 Tonight Show appearance. A huge online thank you from all of us LJ Beatles fans!
She has also shared with us a link to a very rare video!
- Since the video is in .ram format I can't use it ~
See the link "Real Obnoxious" below*
~ but that doesn't mean I can't share it with any of you guys who use Real, huh?
Here it is ~
This is a video of the Tonight Show that someone shot directly from the TV screen, using what was available to regular people at the time, an old-fashioned (8mm?) home movie camera. Paul and John's appearance is at the very end of the video. You can't help the bad quality, and the sound doesn't match the video, but it's authentic historical Beatles, and interesting to watch nevertheless. The rest of the video is of the Beatles in India, and John & Paul interviews.
It's a large file (49.54 MB) on YouSendIt, so give it time to load.
NOTE: The above YouSendIt link HAS BEEN RE-UPLOADED
if the direct link below doesn't work for you!
I'm saving the file on my hard drive just in case that someday there's a way that either Real branded files can be played without problems, or some way that they can be easily converted to .wmv or quicktime.
*Personally, I refuse to install RealPlayer or Real-ANYTHING on my computer,
for reasons (many of which I have experienced myself prior to reformatting my hard drive
and reinstalling my system because "Real" messed it up a few years ago)
As always, let me know if there's a problem. ♥
