Timeless Melody Video - 1988 footage

Postby mcginty » Tue Jul 09, 2019 5:53 pm

This has always been a bit of a curio for me. Clearly the Timeless Melody video features footage that was shot with the Mavers/Power/Sutton/Sharrock lineup, with the live stuff dropped in to hide the change of lineup, and any shots of Barry and Chris left on the cutting room floor. That's my theory anyway, and who knows when the animated stuff was put together!

So in terms of La's stuff still in the vaults, presumably this video was completed, or near complete, if they were going to release Timeless Melody as the follow-up to There She Goes in '88?

Anyhow, I wondered what would happen if you put the 1988 audio to the video. Presumably it would sync-up reasonably well, as it's what they would have been miming to when they shot it. And if you've ever asked the same thing yourself, here's your answer...

This is boss - nicely synced, powerful, and keeps the wacky cartoon bits :D

Boy, with that 88 footage, yanking that Timeless Melody must have been later than just the 11th hour -maybe 11:57!
