    Just got off the phone with Joe Caps, who sounds precisely
    like his old self (4 track magnetic - analogue).
    Aware of all of your best wishes, he is as feisty as ever.
    Should be released on Thursday.

    Is he going to be back in his OAR, or has he been cropped in any way? [​IMG]

    What kind of extras does he come with? I'm not buying him if he's not anamorphic and DTS. [​IMG]

    Mike-
    Joe Caps is a guy who has worked (does work) within
    the video industry. He has worked on many films
    released on laser disc. He and Robert Harris
    have had some lively debates regarding some films
    and their restorations (of which, Mr Harris has done many.)
    Robert Harris, the gentleman who started this thread,
    (since you are a newbie)
    has restored several films over the years:
    My Fair Lady
    Spartacus
    Lawrence of Arabia
    Rear Window
    and Vertigo
    just to mention a few off the top of my head.
    If you listen to the commentary tracks on
    the DVDs of My Fair Lady and Vertigo,
    that is Mr Harris speaking.
    And Mr Caps has "held his own" in debates
    with Mr Harris about the
    image and sound quality of many films on dvd.
    (Reading their banter back and forth,
    is a bit like watching Godzilla and Mothera go at it:
    You just sit here awe stuck, as the titans battle,
    and are thankful to be so insignificant as to not
    draw their attention.) [​IMG]
    It is clear both are much more informed than
    the rest of us ever hope to be.
    Regards,
    Mark
