Icon49 Extended HD promo clip

I managed to have the promo video extended a little and an HD edition made available - be sure and view full screen! Now I can actually see Marie, Nathalie and a few others! I'm lurking in the shadows, but I do spot the red flashing light of my camera

Enjoy; it won't be too much longer I'm told before both shows are available to those of you with an Alive Drive

Meantime, feast your eyes on this

Why video file was so small?
1G AVI file would have easily fit in and quality would have been much better.
Now it is so small picture.
I hope we get some old gigs too. Like the whole Live in South America which was only 6 song long in R.O.C.K.s bonus disc.

There will be exclusive unseen footage added to the roster over time. Please remember, the currently available AD is only 2GB, so putting a 1GB file on it won't leave room for much else! That's really the only reason. The format used will always be something that is cross-platform, thus Quicktime '.mov' is currently used. Also, streaming video is the focus here, not downloads, although in this case, it was made available to you. For improved quality and longer segments (ie: larger file sizes), streaming is the only practical option.

Having said all that, your Feedback is most welcome, so that things can be improved upon or additions made in the future.

Anyway, hope you're enjoying things, you can expect an AD update shortly. I'll let you know here when it's available, unless of course, you spot it first

Good to hear about the unseen footage, look forward to that. The Tokyo '75 clip is outstanding! "Whiter Shade of Pale" video is an awesome performance

You should start seeing some audio from the Robin gigs appear shortly on the Alive Drive, in addition to some video clips. But please remember, not everything will be downloadable, just streams.

Among those initially added will be audio of:

Muscle and Blood
You Got Soul
Love Communion
Don't Let Me Bleed
What's Goin' On Here
Mistreated
Crave
Hold Out Your Life

Further updates, as I get them.

Hi Guys, Just wondered, following on from the Spock's Beard approach of the fans funding the next album, prior to it being recorded. Would you consider this perhaps for the Bilston shows on full size audio/video that could get burned to a DVD for conventional (non PC) enjoyment.
A DVD for fans only, no fancy packaging or stuff, just the shows?
Or, the video could be made available for Alive Drive fans from a website,
with passwords etc, then we could burn our own DVDs.

I know there may be copyright issues and stuff getting out of control, but it's just a thought.

Alive Drive is good, and I like the new techie stuff, but worth an ask

Further updates, as I get them.

The update is now in place and available for streaming.

You'll find the above songs from the Saturday night gig in your Music menu tab and also the Sunday night gig video of "Touch My Life" and
"You Are The Music..." in the Concert menu tab (and upon plugging in the Alive Drive).

The Sunday night's audio stream will be available in the next few days. As I hear more, will let you know.

Meantime, here's an HD promo video for the now available Wolverhampton streams; you may have seen the first half earlier, but the second is new Excuse the choppiness, YouTube are being extremely flakey this week for some reason! They even lopped off 5 seconds from both ends!!

No, the streamed material such as The Robin shows are unable to be transferred. Although, the other album based songs and the Boston video are able to be copied to an iPod or any other device that supports the provided file formats.

Some good news on that front here.

Meanwhile, with The Robin, Wolverhampton, UK shows now available exclusively to Alive Drive owners, we look ahead at the next release phase with upcoming gigs in Poland and beyond. Over the course of the year, there will be a minimum of 4 exclusive releases including an historical gig. More details to follow, as they become available.

It is exclusive for right now, but know what you mean Paul Please remember, although there are good fans, there are plenty of not so good one's. Seeing things show up on Torrent sites and elsewhere, pretty much warrants having things streamed only.

Also keep in mind, the Alive Drive will have future live shows featured, as well as never seen/heard before footage, so will be much more than just these current shows.

The DVD sounds great David, whilst watching stuff on the PC is OK,
cranking it up through the Hifi is my preferred choice.

Seriously think you should (maybe you are) target the folk on here for the fans DVD. I don't care too much about packaging. I bought the Peter Gabriel concert CD i was at, because "I was there". Plain card sleeve, no pics. In addition to that, these shows were superb, and Jeff was a great addition to the band (IMHO).
Played Ritchie's bits with sympathy, yet managed to inject his own style.

Nice if the Bilston weekend could be an annual thing, might be better than Glenn trying to rustle up a crowd in Glasgow or Edinburgh, on tour. We'd travel to Brummie, especially for 2 shows.

Keep up the good work.

No, although for the Boston gig you can resize the video player's window, but for the others, it's a fixed size.
