Check out this ebay item.
I've seen PCM VHS VCRs (regular VCRs that have an audio-only PCM mode), so this doesn't surprise me too much. Never seen a beta PCM VCR though.
The 1979 date I am skeptical about. This tape is probably from the mid 1980s. Perhaps DSoTM was licensed to MoFi for magnetic tape (reel to reel, half-speed cassette) in 1979 and they used that license to produce this tape.
A real collectors item.
DAT basically destroyed the 'PCM VHS' market.
Update, from http://ourworld.compuserve.com/homep...ives/DMFSL.htm
My Beta VCR has a jack on the back for a PCM adaptor, never actually seen one though. I did see a picture a long time ago in a magazine (early 80's) of a digital audio tape machine that used VHS cassettes.
