    That scout hut where he first sang is literally on the other side of the old track(Now called the Fallowfield loop) from where I'm stood now.

    In 1992-3 at the uni union we all used to sit down on the dancefloor.
    assumed it was normal for the time.

    Their Sydney performance was easily one of the best I've ever seen from any
    band, and what a great band they are.

    I wonder how many of James knew any of the guys in The Chameleons being from the same Region around the same period . There’s a ‘ builder ‘ in the Bournemouth area whom is an absolute Spitting Image of Tim. , Their philosophies though are polar opposite for a start.....although Steve has a heart somewhere I’m sure.....🏴😇❤️

    That time in 1992 when I went to see Neil Young and ended up loving the opening band's performance far more than Neil's. That band? James. Ethereal performance.

Love James, so positive and should be on the wireless non stop rather than the negetive bullshit that's being pumped into our kids these days. Keep her lit, James ❤️

      Video is good, Its a shame that this happens on You Tube with audio.. If this happens to me i just re-upload it until its right.. No nastyness in my comment intended :-)

    • StillCloser
      StillCloser  2 years ago

      First off, thanks for the input. Regarding the drop-outs, I guarantee you there is none in the video that I uploaded. In fact, this is a recurring problem with many of my videos, but these usually appear at 10:13 and 15:33 if the audio is encoded in AAC 256 kb or at 8:06 and 1:57:07 with an audio bitrate of 390. I have no idea why this happens, I even tried different encoders but the problem persists... For example, this video also has an audio drop, at the same timestamp, at 8.06 flash-player.org/video/C12JHxqE8sU-video.htmlm
      I've used the uncompressed PCM track from the DVD, the sound is not too compressed, the relative loudness is -2.6db and I even fixed some drops due to layer transition. Here's a list of the layer transitions in the DVD :
      32:13.560 - 43ms (fixed)
      1:28:35.120 - 43ms (fixed)
      According to my notes, these are the timestamps where you can hear the FLash-player drops :
      08:06 (Waltzing Along), 1:46:02 and 1:47:49 (Sit Down)
      I reported this problem to the Help Forum some time ago, but they don't seem to care... You can read the thread here productforums.google.com/forum/#!topic/youtube/wjQPo7EbBYI
      Besides the drop-outs is there any other issue you'd like to address (meaning, the "poor quality") ?
