Is this a hoax: http://www.ebay.com/itm/SUPER-RARE-Walt-Disneys-Song-of-the-South-JAPANESE-VHS-NTSC-Free-Shipping-/120988966852?
if not, would it be a good color reference? considering buying this but still unsure
It is indeed a legitimate release. I worked in a local video store back in the day that actually rented it as well as the Japanese laserdisc.
The labels and cover in the photos do not look like copies and it has the custom clamshell case used with many Disney Japanese VHS releases.
Does anyone know about this one?
Claims to be a rare NTSC VHS screening copy. The quality looks fairly good (considering it's VHS).
First of all, thanx to everyone's input on that copy of the movie. I have decided that it in fact was too much for the movie.
The reason I am quoting that message is the youtube video there. WOW!!! If its real, then WOW. Am doing research to see if there is any reference online to that copy anywhere else and haven't found anything yet and will continue to look. However, I have sent a message to the poster, asking him/her if there is any possibility of sharing a rip of the tape for reference. Explained and linked this thread a little bit in the message stating I am not part of the project but merely an observer which was wondering if that copy could be shared for reference. Would be great to have it (assuming that there are no issues with the copy) as opposed to the PAL vhs tape or the any of the LD releases. Ah, there were issues with the BBC transfer as well, so this would be a great reference. If I hear anything, I will post updates here ;)
Perhaps one of you involved in the project would also like to contact said poster to give my message more validity and hopefully a chance at seeing that amazing tape (looked nice on youtube) ;)
