Post subject:  Randy Rhoads Best Clips DVD

Most of you know the story, but since it's been erased, I'll repost again. About 2 years ago, I set out to make a DVD with the very best Randy footage I had. I've been collecting for over 20 years, and had easily over 25 VHS tapes with Randy footage of varying quality. Some I traded for, most I'd purchased in the early days of EBAY, and some even from back in early '80s out of Circus and Hit Parader. I was really tired of hearing how there wasn't any good footage, and seeing the same crappy VHS tapes on EBAY going for $$$, so I went through hundreds of hours of tapes, and bought a new computer with capture capability and DVD hardware/softrware. I spent the next several months making shiny, expensive drink coasters :lol: After many, many attempts, I came up with something I thought I could be proud of. Initially I made these myself, and sold them through this site as well as my Eternal Randy Rhoads site, but again, quite a few came back as defective due to cheap discs or incompatability with various players. I finally decided to do it right, and sought out someone to reproduce these for me professionally on high quality material. At this time, I also decided to add a CD compilation using all 15 songs Randy played live with Ozzy, from various live shows I have. Thus, the DVD combo was born. With the sale of the last batch, I was able to recoop most of costs, so I figured I'd give it one more go, and do something worthwhile with it (I know it's traded, and on file sharing sites, so it won't sell forever). This time around, I am keeping track of all purchases on an Excel spreadsheet:
and will be making a donation from part of the sale of each combo, back to the Rhoads family to do with what they wish. There's not a lot left over after paying for the reproduction and various other costs, but I want to do something, so I've already set aside $300 in an account,here:

Here are some photos of the package and discs and screencaps(sorry for the huge pictures :oops: :




You can see a low resolution sample of the footage here:


That's about it. I have about 60 total left. I plan on giving the Rhoads family the final 10 along with the rest of the stuff. I don't plan on making more, so if you want one, please let me know. I do sell them from time to time on EBAY, but I generally give a better deal here(not discounted, but I include an extra live show or two.

The price I've set for the final group is $18, with $3 first class delivery, or $5 priority mail delivery, your choice. International price is the same as priority mail. PAYPAL users please add $1 for fees. My username on PAYPAL is cableguyxx@hotmail.com

If you have any questions, feel free to ask. If you have any concerns of the quality of the product, or me personally, just ask anyone who's bought one.

One last thought...thanks to ALL of you have supported me in this effort. It's been a blast.

Everyone's reply was lost in the former version of RR.tk, but I will be the first to add that you will NOT be disappointed in this purchase. By far the best of the best....this one will top your collection- a must have.

I have about 25 left from the original batch. I plan on donating the last few along with the check to the Rhoads family. I'll make sure I have one set aside for you. Just shoot me an email or PM with your name and info, and I'll have it ready for you.

As others have said, if you don't want to have the actual combo, but just want the material, you can find it all over the internet by now. Also, if you don't have the means to download it and burn it, but you still want it on DVD, I'd be willing to make a copy for $5 + actual shipping cost. I can't do any of the extras for that, but I know some folks just want the footage, but either can't or don't want to bother with downloads, or they don't want the extra stuff the combo comes with. Not trying to steer you away from the combo, but I wanted to let you know the options in advance. You will definetly get your money's worth with the combo though, and you'll be contributing to a good cause.

Post subject:  RR Charitable Trust Update

I just wanted to give everyone an update on the donation. Due to the Chaos that's been going on in my life the last six months, I was unable to mail the donation check, back in October as was on the check. HOWEVER, I was finally able to get the check mailed, along with a short note xplaining everything, and a list of everyone who contributed, emails, locations, etc.

I got it in the mail the week of the memorial. I got this letter in the mail a few days later. Thanks to everyone who helped support my project, and thanks to the Rhoads family for their continued support of Randy's fans. If anyone will be asking, I currently have about 15 combos still on hand.

Sorry for the large size, I wanted to make sure it was readable.

I've definately spent more $$ on Rhoads DVD's than I'd care to admit...... But the package I got from Cableguy is UN-Beatable.... The DVD is solid (I'm a big fan of the "Picking Up The Pieces" music video)... it's got every little bit and piece that I've been able to collect on my own, all in one place..... And at the best quality I've seen out of any footage... Thanks alot, an excellent addition to the collection.

Just an FYI for any new members who are interested. I am no longer selling the DVD, as I sold the last pro-made one a while back. If you are interested in a trade, I will gladly burn you a copy, but no artwork will be included. I will also try and figure out how to seed the thing on a torrent site for anyone who would just like to download it.

Thanks for all of your support with this project.
