I have a VHS of the BBC recording of The Chris Barber Jazz and Blues Band, and with Dr John, at the New Orleans Jazz and Heritage Festival in 1980 that I was lucky enough to attend on the BA inaugural flight to New Orleans. Does anyone know who might put it on CD so I can upload it to YouTube? Mr W ? The CB party was upgraded and the Band played on the plane as we flew over the Atlantic.
I'm sorry I do not have a possibility to copy VHS to DVD. There are specialized firms for that; they do this for about Swiss Francs / Euro 120.--/100.-- per working hour (not video time...)
I too have a recording of this BBC television programme. I do own a machine that plays back tapes and DVD'S and allows me to copy tapes onto dvd.
I still own various VHS players and could copy the tape to DVD. You would only have to send the tape to Germany. Cheers Helge
