A few years ago, you would need to sell 250,000 units+ to attain no.5 in the UK chart…

You'd have to go back to about 1981 for that. Sales in the early 90s (i.e. pre-download era) were so low that The Wedding Present got to no. 10 with a single that was limited to 10,000 copies - and it spent 2 weeks on the chart...low singles sales are not to do with downloading and everything to do with the way the music industry operates.

Curiously album sales, despite "illegal" downloading, have never been higher.

The thing is I'd be very willing to pay for "proper" versions of the videos and do subscribe to MFQ. It's just that the rights holders for a lot of footage are unwilling or unable to make them available. I would be pleased to purchase Altered Images DVDs or downloads rather than rely on poor quality bootlegs...

And given the way the media distort the market with their hikes for British DLers in particular and rubbish Region 2s compared to Region 1s I have little sympathy with the big guns.

'It's just that the rights holders for a lot of footage are unwilling or unable to make them available.'
OR charge way too much to licence footage out, which then ensures these things never see the light of day!

This is an interesting one, Andrew. The same footage appears, with a little judicious cropping, on the recent '50 Years of Onboard Formula 1' DVD, narrated by Jackie Stewart. It claims to be from the 1967 German Grand Prix. The cropping, funnily enough, removes the view of the front of the car, which would otherwise show it not to be an F1 machine.

They may well be if your album gets into the supermarkets (i.e. you make mawkish twaddle), but dedicated record shops have gone the way of the dodo, and I can state for a fact that, aside from the likes of Coldplay, who sell plenty of records through the likes of Tesco, album sales are actually at an all-time low - the figures are distorted by the manufactured stuff that sells in Tesco / Walmart.

Do you get the BPI reports every year? I do... Do you get letters from the MCPS telling you their collection rates have to go up to prevent bankruptcy? Do you belong to the MCPS, PRS and MU? I have full memberships with the aforementioned organisations, and I can tell you for a fact that, if I were to say the music industry in its current form were on "life support", it would be an optimistic scenario - that's a fact (unless you're Coldplay or Keane and housewives buy your music in ASDA).

If the music game is so healthy, why have the likes of Daniel Miller (Mute) and Chris Blackwell (Island) sold their stakes in what were the only genuine remaining independents?

We should debate this elsewhere, but believe me, the music industry is affected by downloading; there's also the fact that you can't treat art in the same way you can a commodity, which has been happening since the early '90s when the record shops all had computerised systems fitted, enabling the labels to dissect their demographics in a manner previously unimaginable.

The Wedding Present's 'single a month' schtick was quite clever, they were all deleted at the end of the month so there was no 'long tail'. You wanted 'em, you went out and bought 'em pretty much on the day of release.

It's a pity none of the singles were much cop. The B-sides were excellent though, with superb covers of Wild In The Country, Cattle and Cane, the Theme from Shaft, Step Into Christmas etc.

A clip from this years´ Vintage Nürburgring event for prewar cars, it shows the remains of the old Nürburgring Südschleife ( South Circuit ), which is no longer in existence and only drivable once a year - especially for this event.

I know Twin Widow will tell me off - but for the life of me I cannot find the YouTube thread - so this isn't really a new thread and I apologise. No doubt someone more clever than I will merge it into the the correct place. But...

In the meantime - found this fabulous on-board footage of going round the Le Mans track in a D-type with JMH in 1956. Not to be missed. . If that link doesn't work, just go into YouTube and type Hawthorn Le Mans into the search boax.

Apart from anything else, you get a lovely description of the ride from JMH himself using a lip mike in a harness strapped to his chest (wonderful old technology). Not often we get a chance to hear Mike's voice. Fascinating.

BTW - perhaps the YouTube Finds thread should be a sticky?

Standing by to be told off - but no apologies for bringing this to your collective attention.

But Gary - not all of us HAD video recorders in 1985 :) :wave:

... so I might not be the only person seeing it for the first time.

And if i could have found the thread, I would have put it there and not upset you.

Lap of Goodwood in a Jag Mk 1.

http://www.youtube.c...related&search=

Good fun for those of us whu usually only stand and stare.

If the link doesn't work, just type 'sideways lap of goodwood' into the search box and it should come up. Go for the clip labelled HQ, running time 2.20.

There is also a good one of Hawthorn doing Le Mans in a D-type in 1956. I posted it earlier in a solo thread because I couldn't find this thread. Got shot down immediately by Gary C who first saw it in 1985 and told me it is 'VERY' well known - but there may be some others who haven't seen it before and would enjoy, as much as anything else, hearing Hawthorn's voice describe the ride. Type Mike Hawthorn Le Mans 1956 into the search box.

BTW, the car is a fin-less short-nose with single wrap-around screen, not one of the full-width screen cars they had to race at le Mans post 1955 crash. Presumably a practice car.

There's an ironic moment at the very end where, coming along the straight just before the pits, he says 'there was a bad crash here last year...' Given his own belief that he was the cause of that 'bad crash' (although by 12 months later he may well have been talked out of that frame of mind by England and others) it's a bit eerie.

Anyway - if you didn't see it in 1985, enjoy it now.

Thank you, Steve and Geoff - I thought so too. Only trying to share things around a bit. Nor did I notice, when I made the post on this thread, that Twin Window had kindly re-positioned my original Hawthorn post in its proper place. Fairly sure it wasn't up when I began the post here.

Thank you TW.

There seems to be an increasing number of instances of people rushing to start a new thread when one already exists, or repeating something that's already been posted in a specific thread
I would have thought it's simple common sense (and good manners) to check first

Without doubt, David, you have a point - but you do seem rather tetchy today! But hey; we're all a bit like that sometimes...

re wolfsun's link to David Roscoe's 1967 "Charge of the fright brigade" (which looks for all the world like it was recorded off a small tv screen onto a mobile phone - well, not quite, but...) -- prior to the advent of MFQ that film was available on a VHS tape (Porter Publishing PPV 3109) called "Motor racing '60s style, 1960 & 1967. The accompanying film is about the 1960 Formula Junior season; worth a look if you happen across it.

Thanks, Malcolm for the Le mans tip off! :up:

I recall I had seen it years and years ago but it was great to have a refresher. The proximity of those trees, particularly at the start of the Mulsanne Straight - wow! :drunk: :eek: :eek:

Remember those one to one phone ads a few years ago - who would you like to have a chat with? Well, I can think of a few I'd like to have, but near the top has to be a pint with Mike to discuss '53 at Rheims, the '58 season, the laughs he must have had with 'Mon Ami Mate' and his final run down the Hog's Back. Not sure I'd mention the 'bad accident' in '55 though...

Propping the bar up at the Frensham Pond Hotel would do.

Cheers Mike!

The Top Gear piece about Hamilton and Le Mans 1953 was as I am sure we all know somewhat exaggerated whilst the way that the priceless car was driven (and apparently damaged) by the then 'Stig' caused quite a row.

On getting to YouTube I punched into search,...Land Speed Record ... and came up with a 1905 Darracq replica c/w original V8 engine for 7 minutes; then tried...Stirling Moss... stacks of film available; then...Jack Brabham... Jack being interviewed by a comedian; finally...Ascari... shot of Alberto swimming at Monaco 1955 and in 1951 Italian GP, then found 1957 Italian GP in colour then a whole lot of film, still on Ascari base. Just waiting to be explored.

If this has been already commented on, then sorry - but it all does appear to be unending.
