Is there anyway to tell if I got the repress? I own the BD set and didn’t know there were any syndication versions.

If you’re talking the A-team set, check the Season 3 episode “Bend in the river” , and see if it’s split into 2 parts.

Ok I just checked the episode “Bend in the River” and thankfully it’s the full movie length version in 1 part. I just got this November 1st from the UK Amazon and I guess they only sell the repress by now. Saved me a lot of trouble.

Glad you like the Knight Rider fixes. I feel I’m so close to a complete definitive collection. Just need to try and try down the elusive stereo soundtracks to “Knight of the Juggernaut” and “Burial Ground”.

Regarding the A-team, although I’m not in a position to tackle the whole thing at the moment, I could sort out the pilot, but would need a good copy of the missing scene from somewhere. I can see from above it was released on VHS a while back, but has it been on any of the DVDs? Country of origin wouldn’t matter, or even the language. Sound tends to be a lot easier to patch than visuals,so getting a good visual source would be the first hurdle.
They are showing the A-team in the UK at the moment, but the channel quality is not great (no HD and heavy compression) but I will see what version of the pilot they show, if they start from the beginning again after the current run finishes (they’re on season 5 at the moment and it’s on 5 days a week).

I am not 100% sure if the missing scene in the A-Team pilot has ever been released on DVD. I will try to find that out by researching releases. I’ve only owned the US Season 1 set that had the pilot and it was cut. It would be nice to have a good looking source, better than VHS anyway… but could prove hard to find. I am going to see what I can do and find out. I am going to look all DVD releases and digital versions up to find out if we can get a matching quality (or pretty close) source. I’ll write back asap.

Ok great. I will help as much as I can when you are ready. A-Team is in my top favorite tv shows and I hope one day we can see them all uncut and original. 👍 The cut Murdock scene on the pilot is definitely the most important fix we need. I believe that is the only missing scene on the blu ray set. The music fixes is important as well, but I’d want the missing scene fixed first.

PS: Thanx for all your hard work on Knight Rider, that is also a favorite of mine.

I was researching edits to the A-TEAM series and a user named jeremy223 compiled a list of the changes as follows:

SEASON 1
Mexican Slayride: “Jumpin’ Jack Flash” has been replaced with new music and footage of Murdock singing along has been cut. Columbia House VHS has this scene intact.
The Columbia House DVD spanish soundtrack plays “Jumpin’ Jack Flash”, but the scene with Murdock singing along is still missing.

A Small and Deadly War: A scene with Murdock singing “Satisfaction” has been cut. Columbia House VHS, Itunes, VUDU, and Google Play have this scene intact.

SEASON 2
When You Comin’ Back , Range Rider?: Part of Hannibal’s dialog is cut. In the line “Now you tell Mr. Carter he’s out of the rustling business.” all words are missing except rustling business. This scene is intact on Netflix.

SEASON 3
Cup A’ Joe: The song “Cheeseburger in Paradise” has been removed.
Beverly Hills Assault: The songs “The Heat is On” and “Dedicated Follower of Fashion” have been replaced with new music. “The Heat is On” can be found intact on VUDU and Google Play.

SEASON 4
Teasers are missing from several episodes. The missing teasers can be found on Netflix and Amazon digital downloads.

SEASON 5
No changes that I know of.

Keep in mind that this was compiled before the Blu-ray release and some may be fixed, but I checked the pilot and it still has Murdock singing cut out with replacement music instead of “Jumpin’ Jack Flash” as intended. I believe most of these are still edited even on the Blu-ray.

Thanx for the info. I basically understood it all except a few details. I just bought the A-Team complete series on Blu-ray from the UK and am sad to report it also has a few edits. Not many, but enough to need restoration as well. Otherwise, the episodes look fantastic!

Friday the 13th Original Sound Mixes

Yeah, I own the Blu-ray and the mono is mostly intact… but they changed the outro instrumental track of Time Warp in the end credits to a different version. DVD is all original tho.

I personally would love it captured for sake of it being a unique mix. I like the mix, sure it has issues but I do like it. Original mono is best imo tho. And to be honest, I don’t know if the THX is different in any way. I haven’t owned it or heard it. I believe it is the same… but that is an uneducated guess. And speaking of the original mono track… is that available anywhere in higher quality than DVD?

I see. I appreciate your willingness to capture LD audio for me. Obviously I wouldn’t expect you to do it for free. I’m sure we could come to some sort of an arrangement. First I’d need to find the right discs of course. That will be the biggest challenge. I just want better quality than DVD lossy audio. I actually have a sealed Nightmare On Elm Street 2 LD. That would be interesting to capture… I just don’t want to open it. Haha I also have both Grease and Grease 2 sealed on LD as well. Too bad the Grease track is so complicated or I’d loan that for sakes of preservation. I have a sealed Ghostbusters, Barbarella, Rocky Horror Picture Show and others. Come to think of it… That Rocky Horror LD has a unique mix on it. That would be awesome to have captured too.

I’m starting to wonder if mixing the English DTS-HD 2.0 and the German DTS-HD tracks from the German blu-rays could recreate the original mixes. The German track doesn’t have the newly added efx like the English one.

Hi, Guys. I wanted to ask all you smarties what we can do to preserve all the Friday the 13th original sound mixes in a lossless format? I know Laserdisc is the best option for 6, 7, 8, and 9. But what about 1-5 in MONO? I just imported the German Blu-Ray mediabooks and they are better looking picture quality wise than even the US BDs. Only problem is… NO ORIGINAL SOUND MIXES!!! I’m sorry, but to Hell with remixes. I don’t do them unless I have to. I currently sync the original mono tracks from the deluxe DVDs to my BD copies to watch… but I want better quality sound than DVD.

Return of the Living Dead (1985) Shout Factory BD with Edited Credits

RayRogers said:

I only have the MGM BD and Shout! BD for The Return of the Living Dead. Was gonna import the UK Second Sight UK BD for the OG cinematic audio in lossless. Always seems like it’s quite expensive.
Glad someone wants to take the better image from the SHOUT and then put the OG cinematic track with it.
Would make a loverly BD25.

Yes that is the plan. Waiting to either brush up on my editing or someone else to accept the job. Haha
