My "Most of the Top Dance Videos of 1988" Medley

Postby zippyphonic » Mon Jan 30, 2012 4:19 am

I thought there might be some interest here in seeing this:

In the '80s I was the VJ at a big (theatre-sized) video club in Chicago with a decided new wave/pop bent. For NYEve I would put together a medley to wrap up the year/bring us up to midnight. This was the last one - and best one methinks - I did. 30+ hours of mixing and editing vinyl to reel-to-reel, dub to 3/4" video and insert all the visuals. Weeee! A labor of love to say the least, and lots more guitars than other medleys of the day. [;)]

Enjoy! [8D]

Awesome! My girlfriend and I will be dancing to this next Saturday night. [8D]

ClubLand? Never heard of it, and I've lived in the Chicago area my whole life. Granted I was just 21 in 1988, so probably didn't discover it in time.

I'd love to see the others.

ClubLand was at The Vic. It was still there in '88. Glad you enjoyed this. I'll try to get the other ones up sometime soon.

Fantastic!! Amazing you did this with all analog gear, mixing, cutting, splicing, overdubbing...really great work...and your timing with the edits and transitions is spot on!
