===== Donor Rap =====
This page 100% depends on the generosity of others to continue the work that is being done here to restore and remaster all existing video sources (we even do new transfers on a lot of stuff and uncirculated stuff these days). The postproduction work takes a lot of time, a lot of specialized equipment and software, eats up a ton of money in overhead, continuously increasing storage demands, and a high-speed fiber connection is on the way.

For full disclosure, if you see commercials on this page, this page is NOT MONETIZED in any way. Any commercial you see is either placed there by copyright owners (which they have every right to do) or by Youtube. We don’t want people to have to see commercials any more than they want to see them. On the other hand, we are lucky enough be able to post all of these videos without being crushed off of Youtube from copyright violations. (Which also took a lot of effort to make happen)
With that said, this page would have ceased to exist in December 2020 if it were not for the massive outpouring of people who stepped up and offered to help when i put up the notice that I would no longer be able to maintain this page because of the time and the financial burden. If you are able, consider making a one-time donation or joining the patreon if you find this page to be something of value — every dollar genuinely helps a ton. We do not want anyone to feel any sense of obligation. We are like everyone else and want to keep the music alive, at the highest quality possible.
