ICON ‘1984 – LIVE BOOTLEG’ TO GET DVD RELEASE:
May 29, 2008
Epicenter Multimedia announces the forthcoming release of Icon-1984; Live Bootleg for the first time on DVD.
Originally released on VHS in 1999 thru Epilogue Entertainment, this single camera shot concert is the only known document of an entire performance by the original band consisting of Stephen Clifford, Dan Wexler, John Aquilino, Tracy Wallach and Pat Dixon.
With the advances in digital technology since its original release in 1999, the beta master was recently put thru a series of broadcast filters and Izotope mastering plug-ins.
These technological advancements have produced a clearer picture and an enhanced soundtrack compared to the original release. As an added bonus, a brand new interview with Dan Wexler and John Aquilino filmed in May 2008 is included to round out this release.
Filmed during their first tour, the concert features songs from their debut album as well as songs from the yet to be recorded “Night of the Crime” record and a few songs that to this date have yet to be released.
